Looks Like the Mystery of Resident Evil 7’s Dummy Finger Has Finally Been Solved
For months, Resident Evil 7′s dummy finger has bamboozled players — a mystery, buried inside an enigma, wrapped up in a severed piece of flesh.
In light of the recent demo update, though, it seems users have finally gotten to the bottom of this most ambiguous riddle. As illustrated by Eurogamer in the video below, to solve the puzzle, players must follow a very specific set of steps — much like P.T. — resulting in you unlocking an attic door and, ultimately a ‘dirty coin’ that will carry over to Resident Evil 7 in January. Exactly what function that coin serves in the full game is up for question, but fans will no doubt continue to speculate wildly as Capcom’s horror sequel draws near.
For a step-by-step breakdown, allow Eurogamer to guide your through RE7‘s ghastly house of horrors:
Resident Evil 7 is earmarked for launch on January 24, 2017. Perhaps then we’ll have a better sense of how that dirty coin filters into Capcom’s horror title?
