The game features a semi-open-world environment populated with both classic and new entities manipulated by a new set of key characters. The 17-chapter game is currently getting accolades for its improved weapon system, exquisite storytelling, and level design. Overall the game creates an atmosphere full of tension and chills with a minimum dose of jump-scare elements. The game is said to be not as scary as Resident Evil 7, but it does present a different type of creepiness due to the fact that it takes place in a simulated environment.
