Resident Evil 7 is looking very interesting indeed, chiefly because it isn't a third-person shooter. Instead, Capcom has wisely decided to honour the series' horror roots, and so far – or at least as far as Samuel Roberts is concerned – it's resulting in a very scary game. Bravo. 

The game is launching for PC in January next year, but you can already check whether your system will run it or not, thanks to these newly released system requirements. Here they are, courtesy of Steam:
