Resident Evil 7 will be fully playable in PlayStation with or without VR headset

A dimly rit room can create a sense of claustrophobia. Otherworldly sounds can put you on edge. Now, put that carefully constructed horror world into VR, and you've got Resident Evil 7 -- the scariest looking game to come out of E3 so far.

Resident Evil can be creepy enough on its own, but Sony says the entire game will be playable in PSVR from start to finish. If that sounds terrifying, it is: the slow, foreboding narrative of the game's new trailer is a huge departure from the action packed teaser Sony showed E3 2015 -- one that truly makes the "horror" aspect of the survival horror genre stand out.

Experiencing that in virtual reality could be downright traumatising. Luckily, that's not your only option: the game will be playable without a VR headset, too -- though the game will still maintain a first-person perspective. Sony says the Resident Evil 7 demo will be available to Playstation Plus subscribers as soon as its E3 press conference ends. Brave enough to play it in VR? You'll have to wait awhile. PlayStation VR might launch in October, but Resident Evil 7 isn't out until January 24th.

If you ever played P.T., the playable teaser for the now defunct Silent Hills , you know exactly how terrifying atmospheric gameplay can be.
