Ever wanted to roam around a haunted while solving puzzles and avoiding monsters? Well, now’s your chance thanks to the Resident Evil 7: The Experience. According to Capcom, this experience aims to simulate the game’s atmosphere and will be as close as you can get to Resident Evil in real life. The event is scheduled to take place in London between January 20-23 and will reportedly feature a storyline inspired by the upcoming Resident Evil 7. Participants get to take on the role of investigative journalist interns tasked with uncovering the truth about some mysterious disappearances. Not sure if people dressed like monsters are included in the IRL game, but we do know that the activity will focus a lot of puzzle solving, not unlike the video game itself.
“For anyone who has ever wanted to enter the world of Resident Evil, now is your chance!”, said Capcom PR Manager Laura Skelly. “We wanted to give fans a little glimpse into the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard gameplay, bringing it to life and allowing people to interact with the game in a brand-new way, and perhaps even having a chance encounter with some of the game’s characters. Playing on the idea of survival horror, we are really excited to see who will be able to escape the experience when it opens its doors to the public later this month.”
Interestingly enough, Resident Evil 7: The Experience will be free for all participants, however, slots are limited and the whole thing works on a first come, first served basis. If you live in London and want to take part in the even just head over to the official website for more information on how to enter.
Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. A demo of the game is currently available on all platforms, including Steam.
