Capcom have released a reactions video to the upcoming title Resident Evil 7 that will be released in VR. The game was debuted at E3 2016 where it was playable on the Playstation VR.
Previous Resident Evil titles were scary enough as it was but add in virtual reality and it takes it to the next level of terrifying. Early impressions of Resident Evil 7 have seen people jumping and screaming with the PSVR headset on indicating just how frightening the demo is. VR is a great way to create an immersive experience and is mostly used to offer a pleasant experience, but being immersed with a load of zombies sounds petrifying.
Paul Anderson shared his opinion on Resident Evil 7 in virtual reality who directed the Resident Evil film series. He was so impressed with the tech used to create the new title that he said he’ll probably even make a short film in VR next year as practice for creating a feature length film at a later date.
However, aside from the awe of the technology used, there was also feedback as to the feeling of motion sickness experienced while playing. Resident Evil 7 in virtual reality is still played with the DualShock 4 that creates a disconnect between moving in the virtual world and sitting stationary in the real world.
Resident Evil 7 VR is set for release on January 24th 2017 so hopefully Capcom can address the motion sickness concerns before release as it would seriously limit the amount of time players can play the title. Despite this, it seems an extremely promising title that will be a great testament to virtual reality technology and the PSVR.
