Resident Evil 7 breaks 5m sales

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

Making the Baker family proud.

Capcom’s return to horror in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has now reached 5.1 million sales as of March 31.

Released in January 2017, the first-year sales make heartening news following such a stark chance in gameplay, though the title still lies some distance behind the previous core entries in the series (the middling Resident Evil 6 holds around 10m lifetimes sales).

Receiving wide critical acclaim, Resident Evil 7 was the first core title to play in a first-person perspective and took the game back to primarily horror roots, requiring the player to hide from the Baker family early on with minimal ability to fight back.

Resident Evil 7 has received a couple of story-based DLCs including The End of Zoe and the free Not a Hero expansion. Both of these come bundled in the Gold edition which released in December 2017. Along with full VR support for the PSVR, the game has recently been updated for the Xbox One X to bring 4K support and improved framerates.

Resident Evil 7 is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
