Hopefully the new 'Resident Evil 7' demo won't make you queasy

If the first demo for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard didn't leave you with a headache or worse (yeah, even in 2D), it might've left you scratching your noggin. Well, the "Beginning Hour" demo is getting an update, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog. The Twilight update "expands on what you can do and explore" in the run-down shack. Over on Capcom Unity the publisher-developer teases that even if you've explored every corner of the house that "we've got something special in store for you." So maybe, just maybe, you'll find a use for that severed finger. Hopefully the update means the flashlight's incessant bobbing and swaying been fixed, too.

The patch is scheduled for arrival today, so chances are it'll be waiting when you turn your PlayStation 4 on next. More than that, this new demo isn't locked behind a PlayStation Plus subscription like it was previously. In other revisions, the digital deluxe version is getting a price bump, but with it comes the promise of an additional add-on episode. If you previously purchased for $80, no worries as you'll still get the extra episode. Everyone who's tempted by the new demo will have to cough up $90 though.

Oh and there's a new trailer embedded below, too, if you needed further convincing to make a return trip. Here's to hoping Twilight is more along the lines of the "Lantern" demo from Gamescom last month.
