Capcom have release some further details about their latest installment of the Resident Evil series. Resident Evil 7 :Biohazard will feature a cross save facility that will work between Xbox One and PC. Microsofts play anywhere scheme has proven to be quite successful and having played Gears of War 4 using the scheme I must say I’m a bit of a fan of it. The play anywhere scheme doesn’t go without is hiccups though and it’s unclear whether or not one purchase of Resident Evil will cover your for both the PC and Xbox One versions.
While Resident Evil 7 is looking like it will cure even the hardest case of constipation, you will be able to get it in all it’s glory as the latest details also show that it will also be playable in 4k.
The European Collectors Edition has also been announced and will is also available for pre-order from today and includes some amazing stuff.
Included in the Resident Evil 7 biohazard Collector’s Edition:
- Highly detailed 7” tall replica of the Baker Family Mansion
- 20th Anniversary Resident Evil Artbook
- Dummy Finger 16GB USB Drive
- 5 Lithographs featuring art from Resident Evil 7 biohazard
- An alternative inlay for your copy of the game
- Survival Pack: Action Set DLC – which includes a number of useful consumable items and an instant unlock of the challenging ‘Madhouse’ difficulty setting
- Premium Packaging
The premium packaging sounds interesting… oh well I hope it’s not wrapped in skin or something. You can pre-order Resident Evil 7 from Game and Amazon.co.uk only. Game will also have an exclusive Steelbook version of the game you can also pre-order. The Survival Pack: Action Set DLC is exclusive to the Collector’s Edition and Steelbook Edition of the game .
As you can see Resident Evil 7 is brushing up quite nicely. It’s nice to see Capcom going with a more atmospheric/psychological horror approach and not the action shooter style gameplay of it predecessors. With a release of January the 24th 2017 Resident Evil 7 will set the bar high for the Horror genre and I for one am really looking forward to it. With a timed release of the VR version of Resident Evil and also games such as Agony also diving into VR then there has never been a better time to test your mettle as a gamer.
