Don't play Resident Evil 7, live it with a haunted house-style experience in London

Haunted houses in January? Sign me up. To celebrate the launch of Resident Evil 7, Capcom is inviting fans to explore a real-life version of the game's creepy locale. All you have to do is show up at the venue in London's East End between January 20 and 23, and bring a partner who can hold your hand-- er, survive. To give you a taste, here's a little teaser trailer of the experience:

Clearly your experience will differ, hopefully featuring more squeals of delight and laughter rather than abject terror and despair. Part haunted house, part escape room (meaning you'll have a selection of puzzles to solve), I'd have to say it looks pretty entertaining.

The event is free, though you should arrive early since tickets will be handed out on a first-come, first-serve basis. The actual location of the house is being kept secret, so you need to head to the Sewer Gators debrief area at Dray Walk Gallery, located at 91 Brick Ln, London E1 6QL. Lines form starting at 11:30am, with doors opening at 1:00pm.

Twenty-eight pairs will be admitted per day. Your ticket, should you be lucky enough to get one, will tell you what time you'll be allowed in. The experience takes roughly 45 minutes to complete, and you'll need to show up at least 30 minutes ahead of your scheduled time - so budget your day accordingly. For more details as well as terms and conditions, check out the event's official site.
