The demo for 'Resident Evil 7: Biohazard' demo has been downloaded over three million times.

Capcom's highly-anticipated survival horror game is being previewed in the 'Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Teaser: Beginning Hour' demo which is currently available exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Although gamers across the world are playing the demo now it is also going to get an update soon which will allow players to explore more of the mysterious, derelict mansion. This new "Twilight" version will be available shortly today, September 15, and will be available for all PS4 users to download.

Pre-orders for 'Resident Evil 7' will soon be available on PlayStation 4 across EMEA territories. The standard edition of the title can be pre-ordered shortly for £49.99 and will include a custom theme for the console.

Users in EMEA Sony regions also have the option to pre-order either the Day-1 Survival Edition or Deluxe Edition of the upcoming horror release. The Day-1 Survival Edition will only be available to purchase up until the game's full release for a special price of £52.99 and will contain both the custom theme and the Survival Pack: Recovery Set which includes consumable healing items, an early unlock of the insanely difficult Madhouse mode, and a mysterious Lucky Coin in-game defence item.

The Deluxe Edition priced at £69.99 will include all the content from the Day-1 Survival Edition as well as a Season Pass containing access to three additional playable story episodes which will be launching after the title's release on January 24, 2017.

Pre-orders for Microsoft and Steam digital releases will be available in the coming weeks.

Little is known about the title other than that the gameplay has been switched to a first-person perspective and there is a mysterious 'family' of 'killbillies' to face.

A synopsis from Capcom has stated: "While 'Resident Evil 7' draws from the series' roots of atmospheric survival horror, it also delivers a whole new level of terror. In the classic 'Resident Evil' games of yesteryear, players braced for fear in the first-person via the creepy door-opening scenes, and 'Resident Evil 7' ramps up that tension with an immersive first-person view and a photorealistic graphical style ... It embodies the series' signature gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that first coined 'survival horror' some 20 years ago."
