New Resident Evil 7 Teasers Feature Monsters And Creepy Aunts

Say hello to Aunt Rhody.

Capcom is continuing its series of short yet terrifyingly sweet video teasers for Resident Evil 7 with a new pair of videos that showcase more of the Baker family tree, as well as one of the non-human threats players will have to contend with.

The first teaser, titled “Shadow,” confirms that the cannibalistic Baker family won’t be the only threat players will face while exploring Resident Evil 7’s creepy mansion setting. It’s hard to get a good look at the creature featured in the teaser, but whatever it is, it looks like players will need something a little stronger than a pistol to take it down.

The second teaser takes a slower, more atmospheric approach as it introduces viewers to the titular Aunt Rhody. It is assumed that Aunt Rhody is another member of the Baker family and is thus an antagonist, though what little we see in the trailer means that she could just as easily be an unlikely ally.

Players will be able to find out more about the mysterious shadow creature and Aunt Rhody when Resident Evil 7 launches on January 24th, 2017.
