Damn, great debut trailer and the screens look pretty great too.

Some excellent designs, the four armed creature especially should make for some very tense encounters.

Looks good. The horror part is definitely here, let's hope the survival gameplay is too.

Barbed wire really freaks out so that was a tough trailer to watch.

Game sounds interesting and Mikami is awesome so it should be really good.

this is really looking to be the re4 sequel we've all been waiting for, only with way more horror elements


but...i cannot help but be a little disappointed it doesnt look like it's going to be the return to survival horror mikami made it out to be in those initial quotes :(
but we'll have to wait and see how it turns out

either way, day one.

That didn't really do much for me. Especially after looking at the screens and seeing all those enemies. It looks like it's going to be very much in the same style as RE4.
The screens with the torch carrying enemies, the bonfires with bodies on stakes in the middle and the over-the-shoulder shooting all scream RE4. I'm a firm believer in the old "If it isn't broken" adage, but the phrase "One trick pony" exists for a reason. This screams that to me. I'd love to be wrong and for this game to be scary as hell and super awesome, though.

The trailer did nothing for me. In fact, were it not for the screenshots, I would have completely forgotten about it in a couple days. At best it reminds me of a low production campy slasher horror movie, which I usually don't enjoy.

If the game is more than just cheesy jump scares and blood splatters, though, it looks like it could be interesting. Time will tell, I suppose.

That shot gave me REmake lab vibes:



And while the game may have action I hope is focused on exploration + puzzle solving and resources management.

For people curious, we'll have gameplay and impressions it sounds on the 22nd (next Monday).

Ugh. The wait on this game is gonna kill me.

Some of the screens look nice, others not so much.

Will wait for gameplay video before judging.

I got kind of this Fullmetal Alchemist vibe when the blood splattered on the woman's picture and then the crazy blood monster had a female figure.

Anyway, this is looking awesome. Plus, I'll buy just about anything with Mikami's name on it.

Haven't played a well constructed horror experience in years, Mikami seems like he's taking this project in the right direction. Cannot wait to see how this feels when it's finished.

Conceptually really interesting, but not really served by the seemingly low production value. Made me think of a Roger Corman version of Session 9 + Hellraiser.

So based on the ward-like neurological Psycho Break, and the imagery in the live action trailer, I get a Jacob's Ladder vibe from the whole thing.

Jacob's Ladder seems to be an inspiration for so many horror series. If this ends up RE4 + Silent Hill, I'll be hyped.

yeah you know, maybe you're right. or even the lab w/ the regenerators in re4
but the monster design seems right out of silent hill


man, i want more details so badly. i REALLY want an adventure/survival focused game. but i love re4, so if i have to "settle" for another re4, i guess i'll live

Not a fan of any kind of live-action trailers, but it does suggest full-on horror. Very curious to see what Mikami and team have come up with.

idtech5 is surprising. Fully expected this to be UE3.
