UPDATE 2: Capcom confirmed on its blog that the entirety of Resident Evil 7 will be in first-person.

"In the classic Resident Evil games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and Resident Evil 7ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style," said Capcom's Tim Turi.

Capcom also noted that this sequel is set after RE6 and will transpire in a "foreboding, derelict plantation mansion in rural America."

UPDATE: Resident Evil 7 is also coming to Xbox One and PC on 24th January.

ORIGINAL ATORY: Resident Evil 7 has been announced for PlayStation VR and PS4 during sony's E3 press conference.

It will launch on 24th January 2017, but there's a demo available to download tonight if you have PlayStation Plus. How very PT.

The brief teaser shown tonight had the player exploring a dilapidated house, similar to the village from the start of Resi 4.

There's no word of the game for other platforms yet, but you would expect Sony to have made it clear if it was exclusive. We'll keep our eyes open for an Xbox One or PC confirmation.

There were plenty of other games at PlayStation's conference, which you can read up on with our E3 guide.
