Something’s strange at the old plantation house. Nobody’s heard from Jack or Marguerite Baker in quite some time, with rumors flying around about what might have happened to them. Check out the trailer above for some new gameplay footage of Resident Evil 7 biohazard – complete with a video tape aesthetic you might recognize if you’ve already played the Resident Evil 7 Beginning Hour demo . Read on for new information!

While Beginning Hour acts as a teaser for the main game to provide a sense of the tense atmosphere that awaits you, this latest video shows a “found footage” segment that will appear in the final game. While it may look a little fuzzy, don’t worry – that’s not representative of the entire game’s final graphics. What you see here is a filter that simulates the battered tapes that you’ll be “watching” and playing through in the full game, similar to the tape you can find of the “Sewer Gators” film crew in Beginning Hour. This time, you’ll get a sneak peek at a different tape, one that both shows new areas of the house, and perhaps more importantly, another member of the family – Marguerite.

New screenshots, also just released, provide a closer look at the plantation house itself and what you may come across within its derelict corridors. Check out the full set of images at our Facebook gallery for a glimpse into the old mansion.

Who is the young woman in the video tape, and what does Marguerite want with her? And, perhaps more importantly, will she be able to escape? You’ll have to wait to find out all this and more!

In the meantime, if you haven’t already, you can experience the horror yourself with the Beginning Hour demo , now available on PS4 for PS Plus members! Welcome to the family.

Evil comes home with Resident Evil 7 biohazard, available January 24th, 2017 for PlayStation 4 (fully playable in PlayStation VR mode), Xbox One, and Windows PC (Steam and Windows 10 Store).
