At E3 this year Sony dropped a bomb on many by showing off Resident Evil 7 for the first time. No one had any clue that it was a Resident Evil game as it had steered so far away from what the franchise had become – a gloried action shooter. Yes, it perhaps had a similar vibe to P.T. for most, but hidden deep within the demo was a game with some very interesting bits and, at this point, many unresolved puzzles.
This demo, Capcom has now confirmed, has been downloaded 2 million times by PlayStation Plus subscribers. That number makes it the most downloaded single player demo to date on the PS4. Capcom had this to say about that little milestone:

Here’s hoping the final game holds up to what we played in that demo.
