Resident Evil 7 demo is coming to Xbox One and PC this month

The Resident Evil 7 ‘Beginning Hour’ demo is hitting Xbox One this week, with a PC version to follow later in the month.

Xbox One players can try the previously PS4 exclusive demo on December 9, Capcom has confirmed. The PC release will follow on December 19.

The short demo offers a playable teaser of the first-person survival horror, having you search for your missing wife in a creepy abandoned mansion.

It first hit PS4 back in June, having received two substantial updates since then, the third of which arrived this weekend during PlayStation Experience.

Beginning Hour is an excellent standalone experience that presents the darkness, isolation and sheer creepiness to be found in the full game.

Games Editor Brett Phipps had the chance to play Resident Evil 7 at a recent event, check out his thoughts below:

“This is the scariest, most entertaining survival horror game I’ve played, and if it can maintain this level of performance at launch, it has the potential to surpass Resi 4 as the series’ greatest.”

Resident Evil 7 will launch on January 24, 2017 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
