Resident Evil 7 will feature quite a few changes from previous Resident Evil games, and while it won’t feature any of the staple characters that players have come to know and love, it will offer the same survival horror gameplay that has helped make the series so popular. This article will act as a hub for all of our Resident Evil 7 guide content, where we’ll teach you everything you need to know to survive and escape the Baker family.

Resident Evil 7 Tips

  • Like any good survival horror game, Resident Evil 7 is about atmosphere and environment. Pay careful attention to the world around you. There are items and clues hidden throughout the Baker family estate that will help you along the way.
  • Conservation is key to survival. Conserve your ammunition and healing items. You won’t find many of these items throughout the game, so make sure you don’t waste them on silly things.
  • Watch your back. You never know what is lurking in the shadows, just waiting to jump out at you. Always be aware of what is going on around you, no matter which way you are looking. 
  • Everything is useful. No matter what you find along the way, don’t discount it. You never know when those seemingly useless items might be the answer to a hard to crack puzzle.
  • Be ready. There’s no telling what is going to jump out at you when you enter a new room. Always be ready to fight back or run.
  • Sometimes running is the only answer. Like many survival horror games, you’re going to find yourself coming face to face with unspeakable things. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to turn and run. Learning when you should stay and when you should run is extremely important if you wish to survive and escape the Baker’s estate.
