If you were looking for a way to further enhance the horrors of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard in a few weeks time, then this candle may be exactly what you’re after.
The Blood, Sweat and Fears 4D Candle will allow players to fill their rooms with the atmospheric, and more than likely, unpleasant smells of “old timber and blood.” Not your usual scents for a candle.
The candle will apparently last for about 18-20 hours and will set you back $19.99 if you want to add some pungent smells to your horror experience. The candle is designed to enhance your VR experience, so not only are you surrounded by your virtual experience, but you won’t be pulled out of the immersion thanks to some homely smell in your room.
According to retailer Merchoid, “The 4D candle is 100% officially licensed Resident Evil merchandise; this means Capcom have smelt the candle and found it scary enough to give their seal of approvals. We’d even suggest that using the Blood, Sweat and Fears 4D Candle is the definitive way to experience the game.”
The candle will be available on Jan. 20, mere days before Resident Evil 7: Biohazard finally launches on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on Jan. 24.
