The official launch of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard took place yesterday at Geek Nation in City Walk, Dubai. 

The venue was filled with the groans of zombies and excitement was in the air as gamers from across the UAE attended to celebrate all things Resident Evil. The main highlight of the event was the Resident Evil character cosplay competition featuring a grand prize of AED 3,000 and a collector’s edition of the game.

Apart from the cosplay contest, there were experience zones where attendees could play some of the classic Resident Evil games like Resident Evil 2 on the PlayStation 1. Resident Evil 7 is all about taking the series back to its roots and it was a great addition to the celebrations.

There was also a speed run competition on the PSVR for players confident in their abilities to take on Resident Evil 7 in virtual reality. Resident Evil 7 is one of the first major games to support VR completely and everyone had an opportunity to try out the experience firsthand.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
