The Resident Evil 20th Anniversary U.S. Truck Tour has been bringing PSVR demos of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, challenges for Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6, a unique Snapchat filter, and plenty of commemorative merchandise all across the country! Since the initial kick-off in San Francisco, the truck has been traveling across the United States, with stops in sixteen different states so far. Check out the official site for the latest locations, and read on for a recap of where the truck has been at its last few stops!
Checking in with the horror fans of Wichita, Kansas, the truck tour saw over 200 people show up, including a dedicated group of Umbrella cosplayers. Is it really safe to be carrying a T-Virus case around like that? Not to be outdone, plenty of fans showed off their tattoos and their love of the Resident Evil series, too. The PSVR Lantern demo, shown only on the tour and at a few events so far, earned plenty of scares, too, as players tried to evade the clutches of Marguerite Baker, one of the residents of the mansion you’ll explore in Resident Evil 7.
Days later in Des Moines, Iowa, over 130 people turned out to check out the tour, including our 20th Anniversary challenges for the series’ modern hits, Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6. We even had a number of soldiers who were eager to see what PSVR had to offer. Just like with many of the truck tour’s stops, those who pre-ordered Resident Evil 7 also got some exclusive bonus gifts!
Since leaving San Francisco, the truck has also been through Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Richfield, Minnesota, and will soon be making a number of stops throughout the East coast, bringing RE7 PSVR demos and exclusive 20th Anniversary merchandise with it.

If you can’t make it out to the tour, don’t forget that Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be fully playable with the included optional PlayStation VR mode when it launches on January 24th, 2017. You can also check out the intense “Kitchen” demo, available now on the PlayStation VR demo disc in North America.
