Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is a survival horror game developed and published by Capcom, released on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in January 2017. Playstation VR is also supported.
Resident Evil 7 is the eleventh entry in the Resident Evil series, and the first main series installment to be played from a first-person perspective.
Resident Evil 7’s story follows Ethan Winters in the search for his wife Mia. The search leads Ethan to a derelict plantation, home to the Baker family, where he makes use of various weapons and tools in the fight against the Baker family and creatures known as the “Molded”.
Instead of being action-oriented, the survival horror element present in games much earlier in the series was prioritised. Thus, it was decided that a first-person perspective was the most appropriate for the gameplay.
Resident Evil 7 received excellent review scores upon release. Resident Evil 4 is already considered one of the best games of all-time, and Resident Evil 7 is equally as good. At the time of release it is one of the best games of the PS4 and Xbox One era.
