Resident Evil 7 is coming and to celebrate its release later this month, Capcom are doing something pretty special – opening an immersive experience that has been inspired by the new game.
Taking place in London, UK over four days, Resident Evil 7: The Experience will be in place between the 20th-23rd January 2017.
Set in a haunted and dilapidated venue in the heart of London’s East End, those brave enough to enter will take on the part of investigative journalist interns helping a paranormal TV production team investigate the disappearance of their crew members who never returned from the house. A 45-minute immersive experience, it’ll be drawing inspiration from the cult game’s return to its survival horror roots.
It’ll mirror the unsettling nature of the upcoming game as participants are faced with a web of puzzles and clues, including a few unexpected interruptions, as they work together to overcome both visible and unseen obstacles to figure out the truth, and escape unscathed.
Laura Skelly, PR Manager, Capcom comments, “For anyone who has ever wanted to enter the world of Resident Evil, now is your chance! We wanted to give fans a little glimpse into the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard gameplay, bringing it to life and allowing people to interact with the game in a brand-new way, and perhaps even having a chance encounter with some of the game’s characters. Playing on the idea of survival horror, we are really excited to see who will be able to escape the experience when it opens its doors to the public later this month.”
Game producer Masachika Kawata says, “I’m extremely excited to see Resident Evil 7: Biohazard come to life through this Experience, and for participants to get a little taster of what is to come in the game.”
If you want to check out Resident Evil 7: The Experience and are able to get to London, then you’ll be glad to know that entry is free. It is however on a strictly first-come basis and those lucky enough to grab a slot will go through the experience in pairs. Once complete, you will also be able to play a demo version of the game ahead of the full game launching on the 24th Jan.
Ticket numbers are limited, so make sure you check out further details regarding The Experience right now.
