Resident Evil 7 TV spot offers a glimpse at brand new scenes

Capcom has released a new TV spot for Resident Evil 7: biohazard ahead of the game’s much-anticipated January 2017 launch.

The 30-second teaser popped up during advertisements in The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale, which aired over the weekend. While some of the content we’ve seen before, the trailer offers some notable scenes that we haven’t witnessed yet, including Ethan Winters getting his hand on Shotgun and a brief conversation with the local police.
