Texas Chainsaw-inspired scare fest Resident Evil 7: biohazard has sold over five million copies worldwide, Capcom has announced.

The celebrated survival horror game launched in January 2017 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, and is widely considered a triumphant return to the old-school Resi formula. That’s no exaggeration either; Resi 7 effortlessly marries genuine crap-your-pants moments with a brilliantly foreboding atmosphere, and in my opinion is probably the most authentic Resi game since the first Revelations. 

Capcom announced the latest sales milestone in a press release over the weekend, where it confirmed the sequel had won the gong for Best VR Audio at the G.A.N.G. Awards. In total, the title has sold 5.1 million units, presumably meaning it’s responsible for a hell of a lot of trouser brownies in the process. It’s also a decent step up from January, at which point the game sat at 4.8 million.

Resident Evil 7 is now available to grab with all available downloadable content included out of the box in the shape of the Gold Edition release.
