Capcom has released a new trailer for Resident Evil 7. The trailer revealed quite a lot of information about the antagonist Baker family as well as the protagonist Ethan. Fans of the game went to the Tokyo Game Show knowing that Capcom will be revealing some info on Resident Evil 7.
Resident Evil 7 Screenshots
So far, Capcom didn?t disappoint their fans. The show has revealed some eerie screenshots, where the fans could see the Baker family eating while Ethan is tied. Furthermore, Capcom has also released a brand new trailer for the game which sheds more light to the story.
The Baker Family
The story trailer of Resident Evil 7 introduced the fans to the base of the game. Players will be able to take the role of Ethan. He was apparently kidnapped and brought to a farmland in Louisiana while he was trying to find his missing wife. ?
The farmland is believed to be owned by a psychotic mutant family known as the Bakers. The Bakers are especially resilient creatures, as seen in the trailer. They are able to withstand a barrage of close-range shots from a pistol.
The Bakers are even able to survive a fire and eventually an exploding car. Until now, it is unknown how Ethan will fight back these mutants. The Bakers seem to be unkillable in a lot of ways.
The Resident Evil 7 dinner table scene was very similar to that from the movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The Bakers tried to feed Ethan with creepy objects from the dinner table. It is possible that the objects the Bakers eat is the catalyst of their mutant abilities.
However, Ethan?s unwillingness to cooperate earned him a knife aimed to his face. The dinner scene reveals more about the antagonists, showing that the Baker family are not intelligent creatures.
However, they possess some superhuman strengths, and they also have a twisted way of living. The game could still be connected to the previous Resident Evil games. It is unlikely though that the past Resident Evil characters will show up in the new game.
Tied To Umbrella Corporation?
Furthermore, there is a huge possibility that the Baker family is a result of an experiment which is being manipulated by Umbrella Corporation. This somehow explains the image of the Umbrella chopper in the demo.
Resident Evil 7 is set to release on January 24, 2017. It will be available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Hence, there is still a lot of time for Capcom to shed more light to the game?s story.
