We're not sure we're sold on the first person experience quite yet, which is new for the RE franchise, but it certainly looks uber creepy for sure. After seeing a bit more of the game in action, I'll probably nope right out of the PS VR experience.

See Capcom's announcement below.
As part of this week’s gamescom activity over in Cologne, Germany, Capcom has released a brand new gameplay trailer and screenshots for Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Taking a deeper look at the horror players will see in the release of the title early next year, players are introduced to Marguerite Baker and another mysterious female character in this latest gameplay sequence taken from the main game*. Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be available for PlayStation 4 (the full gameplay experience will also be available via the included PlayStation VR mode), Xbox One and PC when it launches across North America and Europe on January 24, 2017.
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?
Consumers visiting gamescom this week can visit the Sony booth located within Hall 7, B-010 to step inside theResident Evil 7 biohazard plantation and experience the Beginning Hour demo first debuted at E3 in the intense PlayStation® VR mode.
