Resident Evil 7 is getting a PS4 demo tonight

Resident Evil 7 was announced today during Sony's press conference. It doesn't seem to be available on the Australian PlayStation store right now, but the Capcom Unity blog is encouraging players to "start their download now". (UPDATE: it's now available).

"Courageous PS4 owners can get a taste of this exciting new chapter of the Resident Evil series by downloading the “Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour” demo", the blog states. "This free demo of Resident Evil 7 is available exclusively to all PlayStation Plus subscribers at this time, and offers a sense of the intense and terrifying experience awaiting you. We don’t want to spoil your time playing Beginning Hour by offering too many details, so start your download now and prepare to face your fears."

Obviously this demo won't include VR. If you're a Resident Evil fan, start reloading the PlayStation Store.

Resident Evil 7 is, it seems, taking some cues from Kojima's Silent Hills...right down to the early release of a demo. Hopefully it won't suffer a similar fate to that game.
