Sony showed off a new Resident Evil game this evening at its Electronic Entertainment Expo lead-in event in Los Angeles that looks like it’s taking the series back to its roots.

Resident Evil VII is coming January 24, and it is coming to PlayStation 4. Sony also showed off the game running in virtual reality, which the game will fully support. Additionally, if you’re a subscriber to Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service, which costs $50 per year, you can download a demo for the game tonight.

Sony’s push for VR is part of its effort to prepare an ecosystem for its PlayStation VR headset, which launches October 13. Market adviser Digi-Capital forecasts that VR and AR games will be a $10 billion segment by 2020.

You can watch the game in action in the trailer below:
