Rumor: Next Resident Evil to Support PlayStation Virtual Reality Headset #PSVR #PlayStationVR


Update: This rumor came true! Capcom announced at E3 2016 that Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will be Virtual Reality enabled on PlayStation 4 and launches January 28, 2017. The game will be playable with or without VR and a demo is already available on the PlayStation Store.

See video footage below of the demo in action:

With recent hardships quelling and productivity returning at the house of Capcom, gamers are about to get hit with a dose of Biohazard. Umbrella Corps for Windows PC and Sony PlayStation 4, the RE: Outbreak reminiscent multiplayer cousin of the survival horror experience we all know stateside as Resident Evil is releasing mid-June. This release is perhaps tolerated at best, feared by many and unexpected by some. While fans of the modern RE titles and those gamers with an open mind to experimentation will likely find some hours of fun in the title, the question we all want to know is: Where’s Resident Evil 7?

A source asking to remain anonymous once told RGN, “-wait until you see what they’ve been working on, you’ll see they’ve been busy,” in regards to a full entry in the Resident Evil series that can match the elements of what make the series great again in a modern age epic masterpiece which all RE fans feel has potential.

Imagine seeing first-hand the world of Resident Evil with full immersion.

This source has been valid for many years disseminating information where fit and gave advance notice of the PS4K verified with worldwide leaks that have hit these past weeks. The following information has been provided over a long term span of time and may be subject to change as the project moved forward.

What we can expect from Resident Evil 7’s design aspects, and technical features:

  • Explore, aim, shoot
  • Less of a run and gun, more cinematic
  • Teach players a new format for how to enjoy horror and stealth shooter genres in VR
  • Marriage of Survival Horror and Stealth
  • True to the roots of Resident Evil series
  • Immersion as a first priority, Action still remains but is better balanced
  • PlayStation VR Headset support for virtual reality immersion
  • NEO (aka PS4K) settings support for higher resolutions of gameplay.

Umbrella Corps is set in 2015 after the events of Resident Evil 6 (perhaps the most hated game in the whole series) and provides a competitive multiplayer angle to the series. These side-content online experiences such as Mercenaries from RE4 and RE5 have always been a big hit. RE: Outbreak was respected in its own right as a standalone spin-off that only worked with a modem in the back of your PlayStation 2. The epic struggle for numbered franchise entries has always been to balance the classic survival horror feel with the shooter action pacing introduced in RE4. That isn’t required of Umbrella Corps, but it is of RE7, hence a lot of the anxiety in the Resident Evil fan-base over which development path the game is taking.

In comes PlayStation VR, capable of bringing virtual reality to the 30 million+ PlayStation 4 owners [s] and PlayStation NEO (also known as PS4.5 or PS4K) which was recently leaked after heavy rumors began to circulate as a rendition of PlayStation 4 capable of higher VR and HDTV settings including games at 1080P / 60fps and higher with upscaling to 4KTV sets. Although native graphics of the NEO setting on PS4 games from its release onwards will still be higher than PS4, they will likely not reach 4K on graphic-intensive experiences like Uncharted 4. The great news with that is PS4 games still work on both a NEO and PS4 the same way, the game would just have two different settings. to switch between.

All of this new technology is right on time to make the biggest difference in the world for some of our stale franchises too scared to change without time left to stay the same and tread water. Resident Evil is certainly one of those franchises. And so it should be as of no surprise that Capcom could be working to get things right with RE7 for the series, what their fans want in a true RE game, and the future of the video games experience.

This rumor comes at a time when titles like Madden VR are being discussed (Shouts Out EA Sports and HipHopGamer Inc., and Ubiquity Inc.) and true adoption of the PSVR seems destined. Capcom is already onboard with VR technology and has experimented with Resident Evil in many genres; Resident Evil: Dead Aim is a little known gem in the series (if you had the GunCon 2 pistol controller with thumbstick) which could be a pre-amble on what these design specs mean for Resident Evil 7. Recently Sony announced there were more pre-orders than expected and had to double production output to meet the newly visible demand for PSVR units.

Earlier rumors some years ago conflict with this news saying that Microsoft had attempted to approach Capcom with a deal for RE7 similar to the Dead Rising 3 contract agreement. With so much time being passed, and RE7 being a flagship entry in the series – it would appear this never materialized making this rumor all the more likely that RE7 will support PS4K and the PlayStation 4 VR headset whenever it is eventually revealed and heads toward launch. The wait could still be years.

RGN has reached out to Capcom representatives and will update this story when / if this rumor is confirmed or denied.

Invisible, Inc. Hits Steam Early Access Before Summer’s End [Hi-Res Screenshots Released]

Invisible Inc

Klei Entertainment has announced their latest game to be a procedural, turn-based stealth game in which players steal, sneak, and hack their way to victory. Each mission contains a bit of flexibility in how it is completed. Dragging bodies to hide them as seen in many stealth action titles will also be a thing we’re told (necrophiliacs should be pleased).

There will be an Early Access program for this game on Steam kicking off August 19, 2014 and that’s when players will begin to take the role of a world class spy group responsible for some of the most clandestine operations known to man. During Early Access players can pick up the title for $15.99 instead of the final price of $19.99 which will hit when the full releases happens on Steam.

This spy group likely call themselves, Invisible, Inc. due to their ability to remain undetected even in the most hairy of missions. Each agent will be upgradable and feature their own abilities while award winning development studio Klei Entertainment attempt to tell a story-driven narrative and provide deep, engaging gameplay at the same time.

Check out the Official Screenshots of the upcoming Early Access release below:

New Assassin’s Creed Unity Gameplay Video and Details Revealed


In celebration of Bastille day Ubisoft has released new gameplay details for their upcoming next-gen Assassin’s Creed title, as well as brand new (and pretty cool) trailers. First up is the ‘Inside the Revolution’ video which briefly discusses the rise of French Revolutionists and the ‘Storming of the Bastille’ on July 14th, 1789. The second is a trailer featuring narration from protagonist Arno, offering a bit of back story for his joining the Assassin Order and some juicy gameplay footage of the Assassin doing what he does best.

Gameplay details are below.


  • At the beginning of the game the Assassin Order will only be a temporary thing for Arno. At first.
  • The players will be able to interact with each other in the co-op missions through microphones. However, the team made sure that the players who may not have a microphone will not be disadvantaged.
  • The missions’ difficulty varies between one and five stars. Some of the quests are designed for one or two people, while other ones are for three or four players. Players can try a four-man challenge solo, but obviously it will be more difficult. Along with this, a “two-man mission” performed by three players will be easier. The level of difficulty gives the player a tool to decide the kind of challenge that he wants.
  • In the “Murder Mystery” missions the players may find themselves in front of a dead body, and then follow clues and interrogate different people and even accuse them, like a real detective. When a crime is solved, the player will gain the murder weapon and use it in the game.
  • In the “Paris Stories” missions the player will find a wide variety of mandates, as Arno continues to be an assassin. However, not all mandates will be assassinations. Each mission will tell a unique story, which is why they were named Paris stories. This time the player will have to recognize the target. It will also be possible to obtain information and use it to trace it. From that point on, after getting to the target, the player will decide how to approach and kill the target.
  • The city will be ruled by chaos and to really revive this vibrant and ever-bustling city, a variety of random events may occur between NPCs. For example, some people will try to rob a church. Each event is going to fit within the context of the French Revolution. These events will take place in the district which they are directly related to
  • There are also going to be other huge rewards in Paris. There are hundreds of different stories hidden in the game, which offer an insight into the lives of the ordinary people in Paris. For example, if a player wanders into an abandoned house, he/she will find out that a family who lived there took the plague. If the player can find the members of the family, he/she will be rewarded.
  • Unity is not only huge in size, but in terms of depth as well. Players can explore the city and can explore multiple levels (churches, catacombs, sewer system, attractions, etc) and go inside of a lot of the buildings as well. These places will not be empty, they will be packed with lots of activities, with stories, traders and Social Clubs.
  • Unity will introduce three skill trees into the Assassin’s Creed franchise. They are based on the three pillars of the franchise (stealth, combat or navigation) and are designed to let the player improve specific abilities (which can be both active and passive) tailored to his/her personal playstyle.
