It all started with a simple message – “Get out of the house.” Over three million PlayStation 4 players (and counting) have downloaded the Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour demo since it was announced at E3 earlier this year, hoping to escape from the dilapidated mansion. Navigating the decrepit hallways, players would soon find their attempt to escape cut off with another message: “Welcome to the family, son.” Since then, the community has discovered multiple endings, experienced strange occurrences, and even found a dangerous-looking axe. Now, with the final update, “Midnight,” available today, you’ll discover how it all comes together.
In case you missed our announcement at PlayStation Experience, Marvel and Capcom have joined forces once again to bring you the next epic chapter in our highly acclaimed cross-over series: Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite! Universes collide with fun, frantic player-vs-player battles.
What’s up Street Fighter fans? The end of the 2016 season of the Capcom Pro Tour is fast approaching, and with that comes two of the biggest events on the circuit: the CPT North American Finals and Capcom Cup 2016!
What’s up, World Warriors? It’s been an eventful month for Street Fighter V as we just announced a slew of new modes and features for the game at Tokyo Game Show, including Daily Targets, additional Stage KOs, and much more! Beyond that, we also revealed the Capcom Pro Tour 2016 DLC mystery costume we teased at EVO.
Before we get into the new content, though, we wanted to thank all of our fans for the support they’ve shown through our new initiative to help grow the Capcom Cup 2016 prize pool. Since we announced the Capcom Pro Tour DLC at EVO, there has been an increase of more than $90,000 thanks to your efforts!
We’ve just announced a new update for the demo, the Twilight version update, which expands on what you can do and explore. The update will be available starting tomorrow, September 15th. That’s not all – this demo will be available for every PlayStation 4 user, meaning that PlayStation Plus is no longer required to gain access to the plantation house and dig in to the mansion’s mysteries. Now is your chance to investigate on your own, as both newcomers and veterans of Beginning Hour will be able to see what’s changed in the run-down rooms and decrepit corridors.
