‘Resident Evil 7’ Could Come Out Filled with Horrors to Make it Really Frightening to Gamers
The seventh installment to the action adventure horror fiction video game franchise “Resident Evil” will soon come to the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, filled with all kinds of horrors to make it really frightening.
Those gamers who have had the opportunity to play the previous iterations of the series would be happy to know that the level of fright on the upcoming “Resident Evil 7” is now greater compared to its predecessors, cites the Daily Sun of Knoxville.
Game developer Capcom disclosed recently that “Resident Evil 7” is being developed with the Unreal Engine. Although Capcom has yet to issue an announcement or statement to either confirm or deny the reported development.
The “Resident Evil” gaming franchise focuses around a series of survival horror video games but has since branched out into comic books, novels and novelizations, sound dramas, a series of live-action films, and animated sequels to the games, and a variety of associated merchandise.
Consistent with what was shown in the film series starring Milla Jovovich, “Resident Evil” has an overarching plot that focuses on multiple characters and their roles in recurring outbreaks of zombies and other monsters.
It is actually the result of the unleashing of the biological weapon called the T-virus, which was created by the fictional Umbrella Corporation.
A leak about the game
There have been leaks about “Resident Evil 7” when the Korean Games Rating Board classified it for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. It means that the game is about to come out soon, at least in South Korea.
However, pending the confirmation from Capcom, the exact release date of the game remains a mystery.
The latest information about “Resident Evil 7” also indicates that Capcom did not make any confirmation as regards the release date of the game. It also hints that the Japanese game developer will be working on launching a better version of the game for newer gaming consoles, notes the Parent Herald.
Capcom has obviously exploited the “Resident Evil” franchise by creating remakes and spinoffs in the last few years. It would not be surprising if “Resident Evil 7” would also take the same route.
However, some enthusiastic fans and gamers of the “Resident Evil” franchise said that Capcom must work on making the series more cheesy.
Although Capcom has yet to say anything about it, it seems that what is confirmed at the moment is that the graphics of “Resident Evil 7” will take gamers to greater heights, which was apparently because of the use of the Unreal Engine during the game development.
Accordingly, “Resident Evil 7” is going to be developed on the Unity Engine partially because the Capcom in-house engine is not going to be viable. However, the reports and rumors that the game could be made using Unreal Engine continue to persist.
“Resident Evil,” the first game in the series was released in 1996 as a survivor horror video game, but the franchise has since grown to encompass other video game genres.
The series is a mix of action and horror film-inspired plotlines, exploration, and puzzle solving. However from the “Resident Evil 4” onwards, the game transformed into a third-person shooter video game with fewer puzzles and greater emphasis on gunplay and weapons upgrading.
Indicative of how popular the video game is among gamers, the “Resident Evil” franchise has sold 61 million copies worldwide from the time of its first release in 1996 up to 2015. It seems likely that “Resident Evil 7” will make its own contribution to the great reception of the franchise and shall add to the figure in terms of number of units sold as well.
Meanwhile, Milla Jovovich is set to return as the iconic Alice in the sixth and final “Resident Evil” film, Ali Larter shall also be joining her and will also be reprising her role as Claire Redfield.
Ali Larter’s Claire character was last seen in “Resident Evil: Afterlife” shown in 2010. Her character is based on Capcom video games as Chris Redfield’s sister and is a protagonist herself in subsequent video games about the series.
Claire is a strong-willed zombie apocalypse survivor turned vigilante and a member of the fictional non-government human rights organization called TerraSave. Their group provide medical aid and protection from bioterrorism which the Umbrella Corporation is sowing.
A few months ago, Milla posted a photo on her Instagram account showing what appeared to be the developments for “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.” She captioned it by saying that the moment that many people have been waiting for is finally here, adding that it is time again for the zombie-killing season for the Jovovich-Anderson clan.
She also explained that she was already getting her face cast made for the upcoming film. She went on to say that she will be leaving for South Africa the following day to prepare for the filming of the movie.
Those who are familiar with the “Resident Evil” movie series know that Alice is an ex-employee of the corrupt pharmaceutical company called Umbrella Corporation which unleashed the lethal T-virus during an experiment.
Umbrella Corporation endowed Alice with superhuman abilities having discovered that she is immune from the virus. Alice sets out to fight against the Red Queen, the Umbrella Corporation’s computer system, in order to protect humanity from total annihilation.
“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” will reportedly pick up following the events of the fifth film of the franchise “Resident Evil: Retribution” which was shown in 2012.
Milla and husband Paul planned to shoot the film as early as last year, but it got delayed due to the actress’ pregnancy for their second child. The couple already has a seven-year-old daughter named Ever.
“Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” is due for released to worldwide theaters on September 2, 2016. It was initially planned to premiere on September 2, 2014, but was moved due to script and casting considerations.
