"Horror fans all have one thing in common: We live to be terrified. Capcom has heard fans' masochistic cries for a Resident Evil game far more terrifying than anything that has come before it," Capcom said in a news release.

Resident Evil 7 is a first-person game that aims to offer "photorealistic" visuals. The game also will be playable in virtual reality using PlayStation VR.

"Playing the game in the PlayStation VR Mode escalates the unsettling feeling of presence to a level that horror fans have never experienced," Capcom said.

In terms of story, Resident Evil 7 is set after the events of Resident Evil 6. It takes place in modern day and the story focuses on a "foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America. Players must explore and survive the horrors within the mysterious, sprawling estate."
