When P.T. _first debuted on the PlayStation 4, people were baffled by it. They had no idea what it was, let alone what it was a teaser for. That was until someone finished it and saw the _Silent Hills reveal. But that was years ago. Now, Resident Evil 7's playable teaser has taken the lead, breaking download records on the PS4.
the most downloaded single-player demo on PS4 in the first seven days of release for North America.
Capcom has decided to go in a different direction with Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, turning away from the traditional third-person perspective that is usually present in Resident Evil games and using first-person perspective instead, something that wasn't always expected from the classic horror games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill. And to help players understand better what Capcom was going for in the new Resident Evil game, they released the playable teaser, which I think is why the demo became so popular. Players wanted to see for themselves how the first-person perspective felt in a Resident Evil game. And as I described in a previous story, it no longer feels like a Resident Evil game, but something totally different.
Capcom has come out and said that the teaser won't be in any part of Resident Evil 7, so it makes me curious if that's even a part of the storyline at all. And if you don't have any idea what I'm talking about, you need to play the demo. I don't care if you have to go over to a friend's house to do it, you need to understand what I mean when I say this feels nothing like a Resident Evil game, and that could be good or it could be bad. I did think it felt like a totally different game, but I was assuming it would at least show us a part of the actual game so we would know what we're in for, but in a way it keeps players in the dark about what the actual game will be like.
The Resident Evil 7 playable teaser is still available on the PS4, but only to PlayStation Plus subscribers, so if you don't have a subscription yet, you'll want to spend that $15 or so to get a taste of the Resident Evil 7 demo. Not only does it live up to the hype, but it sets the stage for a pretty terrifying experience, harking back to the joys of a genuine, atmospheric horror.
