How Resident Evil 7 Can Change The Horror Games Forever

Even though it was a commercial success, the four years since Resident Evil 6’s release have revealed a drastically different survival horror landscape.


Shorter atmospheric horror experiences like Five Nights At Freddy’s and Outlast have amassed plenty of fans, but the Resident Evil franchise pedigree has been built on longer adventures with various settings in the course of a campaign.

The first-person perspective is new territory for the series and it’ll have to even out the jump-scares with combat that RE fans have come to know and love.

But if they can exhibit that balance come January, Resident Evil might find itself at home atop the sales charts and leading a pack of new, first-person re-imaginings of your favorite ’90s classics.
