The full game is available to play via the included optional PlayStation┬«VR Mode for the PS4 version. In order to provide an overwhelming, deeply immersive horror experience, the game’s system underwent a dramatic shift from its previous third-person camera to a new first-person perspective, helping to drive sales of the title to 5.1 million units* worldwide. Further, in December 2017 Capcom released Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition, a complete set featuring the main game as well as all Season Pass content. *As of March 31, 2018
