Resident Evil 7: Biohazard

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (Console & PC)

With improved skin tone display through Screen-Space Subsurface Scattering and 4k output, survival horror is taken to the next level. Even without a 4K or HDR monitor, the 4k visuals are downscaled and still can be enjoyed through an HD display. Fear and isolation seep through the walls of an abandoned southern farmhouse. "7" marks a new beginning for survival horror with the "Isolated View" of the visceral new first-person perspective. Powered by the RE Engine, horror reaches incredible heights of immersion as players enter a terrifyingly new world of fear as they fight to survive. HDR enhanced for richer, more luminous colors.
With all of these new additions, it does mean there are a few casualties. Metal Gear Solid HD Collection and four other games will be leaving Xbox Game Pass soon, as well as Red Dead Redemption 2 and NBA 2K20.
