Resident Evil 7‘s excellent marketing campaign continues today with a new trailer and an update for the Beginning Hour demo.

The new trailer, fresh from TGS, introduces us to the Baker family of Dulvey, Louisiana. They do not seem like pleasant people.

The PS4-exclusive Beginning Hour demo, which has been downloaded 3 million times, will receive an update today that will “allows players to explore more of the mysterious, derelict mansion”, Capcom has announced. This will be known as the ‘Twilight’ iteration of the Beginning Hour demo. Update: You won’t need a PS Plus subscription to access it, either, unlike the original demo release.

With the initial release, Capcom stated that the Beginning Hour would not feature characters or content that would appear in the final game, although it’s not clear if this is still the case for this version.

Resident Evil 7 has also been confirmed as one of several games that will support 4K With the PS4 Pro.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on January 24, 2017. It will support PlayStation VR, if you’re braver than me.
