News PS Plus Collection's Resident Evil 7: Biohazard Won't Upgrade to PS5 for Free
Go tell Aunt Rhody

News Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 Coming to PS5 with Visual Enhancements, Free Upgrade Confirmed
Resident Evil Village was the first of Capcom's long-running horror franchise to grace PlayStation 5, and it of course looks fantastic on the new hardware. But what of the older games in the series? It appears the publisher won't be leaving its last-gen games behind, as they're all making the leap to PS5 with native versions. To...
News Resident Evil 7 Becomes the Best-Selling Game in the Series
Go tell Aunt Rhody
It's been a three-horse race for quite some time now, but Capcom can now finally claim it has an overall victor in the pursuit for the title of best-selling Resident Evil game. It is Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, which has now pulled away from the last-gen version of Resident Evil 5 by 200,000 units. The twosome had been battling it...
Game of the Year 2017 #6 - Resident Evil 7
Every time Capcom took a step forward, it made two steps backward over the past decade with its flagship horror franchise. Resident Evil 5 demonstrated a questionable turn toward action, but Resident Evil: Revelations steered back on course with its eerie, claustrophobic setting. The disastrous, confused sixth entry ruined this by capsizing...

News Resident Evil 7 Sneaks Past Its Sales Target Several Months Late
Better late than never
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, one of the better games of the year in this author’s humble opinion, has ghosted past its sales target – albeit several months late.

TGS 2017 Resident Evil 7's Not a Hero Looks Like Brilliant Free DLC
Chris Redfield’s back – and so are his burly biceps.

News Resident Evil 7 Falls Short of Capcom's Sales Expectations
Despite selling over 3.5 million units so far
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has failed to meet the sales expectations of publisher Capcom, the firm's latest financial report has revealed.

Go tell Aunt Rhody
Resident Evil 7's free DLC pack has been pushed back until an undisclosed later date.

News A Familiar Face Returns in Resident Evil 7's Free DLC Not a Hero
Well, not that familiar
Chris Redfield will star in Resident Evil 7's free Not a Hero story expansion this spring, though he won't look like you remember him. Capcom's promising a "short scenario" with a different flavour to Ethan's adventure – it's probably safe to assume that this will be a full-on first-person shooter like the latter stages of...
News Resident Evil 7 Reloads with More DLC Banned Footage
The first chunk of Resident Evil 7 DLC was excellent – even if it arguably should have been included with the main game. We're excited to see how the second set fares, then – and the good news is that Banned Footage Vol. 2 is available to download right now from the PlayStation Store. Yeah, it's coming thick and fast, isn't it? This...

Dead to rights
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard looks poised to be a commercial success as well as a critical one.

Poll Should Resident Evil Remain First-Person for Now?
The million dollar question
For many ardent fans, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard's switch to first-person proved a bigger fright than the game itself – but as reviews proved this week, the change works better than it has any right to. Even those that enjoyed Resident Evil 6 would struggle to argue against the staleness that Capcom's flagship franchise...
Guide Where to Find All 18 Antique Coins in Resident Evil 7
Pelicans in your pocket
Resident Evil 7's upgrade system is, quite frankly, genius. In order to maintain consistency with the grounded nature of the campaign, Capcom has done away with Australian accented merchants and complicated mission complete screens. Instead, it's incorporated Antique Coins: collectibles located around the Baker plantation...
Guide Which Difficulty Should You Play Resident Evil 7 On?

News Resident Evil 7 Sharpens Up the Scares on PS4 Pro
Sony's new hardware leveraged to great effect
Resident Evil 7 is a stunning game. Running at a near locked 60 frames-per-second, the release has some ridiculously good lighting, which makes its Louisiana setting sing on the PlayStation 4.

Feature Is Resident Evil 7 Any Good with PlayStation VR?
Back to the Kitchen
Resident Evil 7 is something of a rarity: it's a major PlayStation 4 title which can be played in virtual reality from start-to-finish using PlayStation VR. There are very few cut corners here – aside from the pre-rendered cut-scenes which annoyingly play in Cinematic Mode – and Capcom deserves credit for that; at a time when...

News Resident Evil 7 Custom PS4 Controller Has Dummy Fingers for Triggers
You are dead
Vulpe Andrei is a dab hand at console and controller mods, having been behind some of our favourites in the past. But this custom Resident Evil 7 DualShock 4 is a cut above his usual work; the attention to detail is insane. While the pad's ugly by design, we absolutely love some of the touches, like the use of dummy fingers for the...
Feature 5 Crucial Resident Evil 7 Questions Answered
'Cos Capcom ain't sayin' much
Resident Evil 7 releases in less than a week, but questions are still circling Capcom's latest like a bad smell. Can you play the game without PlayStation VR? Is there a co-op mode?

News Capcom Reckons Resident Evil 7 Can Chew Through 4 Million Copies on Day One
Not dead yet
Earlier this year, Capcom stated that it expected to sell 4 million copies of Resident Evil 7 over its first couple of months on the market.

"I really loved it"
Resident Evil 7 looks to have taken a little inspiration from P.T., the demo for Silent Hills.

News Could There Be a Secret Ending to Resident Evil 7's Demo?
The finger and the axe
So, we posted our First Impressions of the Resident Evil 7 demo a couple of days ago, and we liked it.

Maybe not. Within the demo,...
