Resident Evil 7 has enjoyed a mostly positive buzz throughout 2016, but now we have our hands-on the PC version of the game - at least in its demo form, with some more details on the game now released.
Capcom is tweaking the game as you play, so that your experience is changed depending on how well you're playing Resident Evil 7. This was teased by Resident Evil executive producer Jun Takeuchi in an interview with the Official PlayStation Magazine UK, where he said: "Let's say you're playing a section and you die because you weren't able to react in time. Well, if you die a few times in that particular scene the game will adapt a little bit and bring the difficulty down a touch to give you the opportunity to proceed".
He continued: "But we want to make a game where people don't see dying as a negative thing because it's a horror game. It just isn't like a shooter where dying is a case of losing a life or losing your progress. In a game like this, the fact that something comes out and kills you outright is all part of the horror experience. We're trying to smooth the process of getting back into the game after dying, rather than limit any of the possibility of dying, because making the game too easy would also detract from the horror experience. Survival horror has to have a certain volume of player deaths to occur in order for the horror to be effective; you're scared of the idea that your character died, not of the mechanic of dying".
Better yet, are the graphics in Resident Evil 7 - with the company teasing it as one of the "most graphically impressive" games on the new PS4 Pro. The Official PlayStation Magazine UK has said that Resident Evil 7 has "borderline photo realistic throughout" and teases an "unprecedented reversal of fortunes" for the Resident Evil franchise. Excitement levels, increased.
During an earlier interview, Resident Evil 7 producer Masachika Kawata said: "Resident Evil hasn't been a good-looking series for years, but that ugly run well and truly ends now - especially if you're wincing at the brightness of its HDR lights and playing it in 4K and courtesy of PS4 Pro. I think it's a good balance with enough combat to be enjoyable but without taking over the game".
