The video game publisher and developer Capcom officially makes the demo for its forthcoming survival-horror title Resident Evil 7 available for PC platforms.
Prior to today, Resident Evil 7 fans had only been able to experience the game’s playable trial on either the PlayStation 4, PlayStation VR, or Xbox One platforms. Now, however, Capcom has finally made the forthcoming survival-horror title’s demo available for PC fans.
Those PC gamers who wish to get a taste of the terror in Resident Evil 7‘s trial can do so by downloading it through Steam right here. For the fans who have yet to try it out, a line from the description of the demo reads, “You wake up alone on the floor of an abandoned farmhouse. Daylight is quickly fading. You must find a way out,” with players needing to find a way to survive against the Baker family and its monsters in the basement.
Earlier this month, after Capcom announced the release date of Resident Evil 7‘s demo for PC, the company provided fans with a look at some of the game’s customization settings on the platform. These included standard options such as texture quality, anti-aliasing, ambient occlusion, as well as v-sync, field of view, dynamic shadows, and motion blur. Not to mention, there were even settings such as volumetric lighting quality, color space, chromatic aberration toggling, subsurface scattering toggling, bloom effect toggling, lens flare toggling, and more.
As of late, the Beginning Hour demo and its updated variants have not been the only means with which Capcom has been promoting Resident Evil 7. As a matter of fact, the company has made plenty of gameplay videos available online, and has even cut promotional clips to be used as television advertisements. For instance, not only has Capcom edited together an ad for Western TV audiences, but also the developer has produced a Japanese TV trailer solely for the company’s country of origin.
There’s not much longer to go before Resident Evil 7 officially launches, and Capcom is incredibly confident in the title’s ability to sell well on its release date. As a matter of fact, the company has so much faith in the game that it has projected figures that Resident Evil 7 will have sales that pass 4 million units sold on day one. Of course, it remains to be seen as to whether or not such a financial feat will occur, but considering the fans’ eager excitement for the title, such an accomplishment isn’t too outlandish, especially when one considers the fact that other highly anticipated Triple-A titles like Final Fantasy 15 sold 5 million copies to make it the fastest-selling title in the RPG series.
