We know that Resident Evil 7 is still quite some time away from launching, but if you think that this is the game that you want to be playing in 2017, Microsoft’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb has announced on his blog that the game is currently available for digital pre-order for the Xbox One, and that is also available for pre-download.
There will be two versions that gamers can choose: the standard version which is priced at $60 and will come with the game and the Survival Pack: Recovery Set, or the deluxe version which is priced at $90 and will come with a copy of the game, the Survival Pack: Recover Set, and a season pass.
In the description of the game on the Microsoft website, it reads, “Fear and isolation seep through the walls of an abandoned southern farmhouse. ‘7’ marks a new beginning for survival horror with the ‘Isolated View’ of the visceral new first-person perspective. Powered by the RE Engine, horror reaches incredible heights of immersion as players enter a terrifyingly new world of fear as they fight to survive.”
Like we said, the game is available for pre-download which means that the essential files will be downloaded onto your Xbox One, so that when the game is launched, you won’t have to spend the next few hours downloading it. Resident Evil 7 is set for a release on the 24th of January, 2017.
