Resident Evil 7 Isn't Going to Shy Away From Violence

Fresh details have been discovered thanks to the ESRB (Entertainment Software Ratings Board) that the upcoming Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, will contain some seriously violent events. 

This is a survival-horror game in which players assume the role of Ethan, a man searching for his missing wife in a derelict mansion. From a first-person perspective, players explore the environment and use pistols, shotguns, flamethrowers, explosives and chainsaws to kill mutant creatures. Combat is accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and exaggerated blood-splatter effects.

As players progress through the story, cutscenes can depict instances of gore and intense acts of violence: a character’s arm dismembered by a chainsaw; a man’s leg taken off at the knee with a shovel; a character impaled through the face with a shovel. Some areas also depict mutilated corpses with exposed organs/viscera. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” are heard in the dialogue.

The game has been rated R18+ here in Australia. 

January 24th cannot come soon enough.
