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

resident-evil-6-screenshot-7

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.

Umbrella Corporation - Resident Evil 7 PlayStation VR PS4

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.

Tom Clancy’s The Division Delayed until 2016

td

The Division has been delayed, and will now see a 2016 release, Ubisoft has announced today. Players looking to get their hands on the open world third-person shooter RPG, will have to wait until the first quarter of next year. Basically the game should launch anytime between March and June 2016.

The reason for the delay, boils down to the game’s many developers wanting to deliver an experience that not only meets the player’s expectations, but theirs as well.

“We have decided to release the game on Xbox One, PS4 and PC during the first quarter of calendar year 2016.

All of us at Massive, Reflections, Red Storm Entertainment and Ubisoft Annecy want to ensure the game not only meets our high expectations but also those of our fans and players alike. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and can’t wait to show you more next month at E3!”

While the delay may come as disappointing news to some, it is best to remember that it can result in a better experience once it is released. You can expect more details at this year’s E3.

Thoughts on the delay? Let your voices be heard in the comments below.

H1Z1 Impressions Pt II – Updates, Lag, Players Become Zombies After Death

H1Z1 - Steam Early Access Impressions - RealGamerNewz Pt 2

Hello again RGN Readers, it’s me, John Clark of the RealGamerNewz Community, back again to tell you my experience first hand with the latest updates H1Z1 has had rolled out for it. More news has been coming in about H1Z1 and how the game is moving on in a new direction. From day 1 without ceasing to this day, H1Z1 has received tons of updates and bug fixes which genuinely improve the game. The latest update has fixed a lot of imbalance which originally existed in the game, and makes it more of a survival title and less of just a shooter online with food hanging around.

One of the neat things you might not know about H1Z1 which was revealed recently by the development team is that when players die they actually have become zombies in the population of the undead (though you cannot play as one). Meaning, when you kill a zombie to a player who never had his dead body’s items taken then you’ll end up getting those items from a zombie. Crazy right? I didn’t believe it myself at first, reddit here. I’m not sure how long that part of the game has been live but in the most recent update there was a lot of cleaning up done to the overall balance of this game.

In this update they’ve made it harder for you to survive which made things more fun for me personally as well as having my backpack changed from 1500 to 600 capacity. A lot of items take up more room now which is good and bad at the same time because you have less over-powered folks but you also have less of a chance of surviving through the right situation if you aren’t very well thought out on preparations before making a trip.

I do feel screwed over because of a server wipe eliminating all of the work I’ve done thus far in the game, but I enjoy H1Z1 enough to keep playing it, writing about it, and telling others about it – so the development team must be doing something right. Ever since the latest reboot, servers are running great. There’s much less lag in the game now. Even more imbalance issues were addressed recently including finding loot being too easy (it’s much harder now).

Rare items are also a lot harder to find now. I personally haven’t seen or come across any enemies or players using the most rare items yet since the update in fact, so it’s taking some time for things to progress back to that level. Graphics are looking better than ever and in the upcoming update there are plans for expanding H1Z1 even further. I hope you enjoyed reading what I had to say and let me know what you think about the game if you play, or if you don’t – consider checking it out. Thank you, peace out.

If you play H1Z1 and want to meet up and level up with me or go into towns, villages, and camp sites together make sure you are ready and add me. My in-game name is John1989
