Capcom will release a "Twilight version" update for Resident Evil 7 biohazard's Beginning Hour demo on Sept. 15, the company announced at Tokyo Game Show today. The new demo, which "allows players to explore more of the mysterious, derelict mansion," likely providing answers to unsolved mysteries, will be available to all PlayStation 4 owners; Resident Evil fans won't need PlayStation Plus to access the updated Resident Evil 7 teaser.

Capcom also released a new trailer for Resident Evil 7 today, one that gives players a new look at the terrifying Baker family, their unappetizing dining habits and some of the game's first-person combat mechanics.

Finally, Capcom announced an update — and a price increase — for Resident Evil 7's deluxe version. The $79.99 deluxe version of the game, which previously included the base game and its season pass (featuring two add-on story episodes), will now include a third story episode. The price of the deluxe edition will go up to $89.99 on Sept. 15, though Capcom notes that customers who already purchase the deluxe edition will get the third episode at no additional charge.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be released Jan. 24, 2017 on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. You can check out some new screenshots of the game in the gallery below.
