After PlayStation 4 gamers were treated to an updated "Resident Evil 7 Beginning Hour" demo last weekend, Capcom has confirmed that Xbox One and PC won't be far behind. The "Resident Evil 7 Midnight" edition demo will arrive on Xbox One by December 9, while PC gamers will get it on December 19. 

In addition, Capcom also announced that there would be a plethora of settings and graphics options that would be available specifically to PC, without expounding on what these particular variations would be. "The Resident Evil 7" demo has been around on PS4 in earlier versions since the E3 gaming conference this year, according to IGN.

Capcom also said that the new Resident Evil 7 demo is live on PS4, PS4 Pro and PSVR. The Midnight edition demo is also accompanied by 4K support for PS4 Pro gamers as well as HDR for all TV-owning PS4 players, according to Gamespot.

The difference between this updated version and past editions of the Resident Evil 7 demos is that the new Midnight edition will enable gamers to discover what awaits beyond the "mold-covered door" where horrifying growling noises have been heard, said Capcom. 

At PlayStation Experience last weekend, the publisher also premiered a new trailer for Resident Evil 7, which will be available on Jan. 24, 2017 on all platforms (Xbox One, PC and PS4) and is expected by Capcom to sell up to 4 million copies. Just three days afterward, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will hit movie screens, giving fans of the horror game a truly explosive month. 

It was earlier confirmed that the next Resident Evil 7 installment would be available for cross-saving on PC and Xbox One, although it still remains to be seen whether a cross-buy version will also be available. Under the Xbox Play Anywhere scheme, gamers can purchase single-priced titles that work on both the PC and Xbox One, although all games covered by the scheme thus far have been Microsoft titles only.
