Resident Evil VII Gameplay Trailer, Screenshots and Info from GamesCom

Resident Evil VII: Biohazard draws nearer, and today we have a brand new gameplay trailer from Gamescom, showing off the first footage to emerge from the game itself – and boy does it look terrifying!

This first-look into the game begins to peek into the mystery surrounding the plantation mansion featured in RE7, introducing a female player character who seems to go by the name of Mia, and her menacing pursuer – confirmed to be Marguerite Baker, one of the missing residents of the mansion.

Recent promotional material from Capcom explains:

“Set within the sinister plantation house in Dulvey, Louisiana, the Baker family, including Jack and Marguerite, were residents but no-one has seen or heard from them in a while. Where could they be? One thing is clear in the latest content to be shown from the game – there’s something not quite right within the plantation. Who is the mysterious girl in the gameplay? What does Marguerite want with her?”

In addition, a little mention is given to the return of the series’ signature inventory system:

“Returning to the series roots, signature gameplay features including exploration, puzzles and a realistic tense atmosphere awaits players. The classic inventory system returns but with limited space meaning players must choose what they carry with them carefully, making sure they remember to pack their green herbs!”

Had enough? Of course not – have these awesome screenshots too:
