Resident Evil 7 Banned Footage DLC revealed

The first piece of DLC has hit Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Banned Footage Vol. 1 is part of the Season Pass or can be bought separately for £7.99/ €9.99 / $9.99 and for PS4 owners, it’s available today.

Vol. 1 picks up with the Sewer Gators and includes two new scenes – Nightmare and Bedroom – where Clancy, the cameraman, must craft weapons and ammo in order to survive until morning, and figure out how to leave the bedroom, which I’m guessing will be another escape room puzzle similar to the teaser demo and the Birthday Tape sequence. There’s also a new mode called Ethan Must Die, an extra tough difficulty that is “infinitely replayable” but “separate from the events of RE7”.

Vol. 2 will launch on February 14 and also includes two new scenarios – 21 and Daughters – picking up again with the Sewer Gators for a game of 21 with Lucas – so Blackjack? – before tackling the tragic events of the Baker Daughters. Vol. 2 also includes Jack’s 55th birthday, a new mode where you must give Jack ‘treats’ for his birthday celebration. Vol. 2 is priced the same as Vol. 1 and both will be available to Xbox One owners on February 21.

 

 

 

 

A tease of Resident Evil 7 The Experience

Over the last week or so, Resident Evil 7 The Experience opened its doors to hundreds of participants in London, challenging them to survive a real life horror escape experience, all based on the gameplay in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard, which launched yesterday.

If you missed out, fear not, you can have a sneak tour of the actual London house used in the experience in the brand new trailer below.

And keep an eye on @RE_games Twitter for more reaction footage from the Capcom UK team throughout the week.

Resident Evil 7 supports Play Anywhere

We’re only a week away from the new Resident Evil title launching, but still there’s some pleasant surprises coming to light.

Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, sent out a Tweet this evening confirming that Resident Evil 7 will support Play Anywhere, allowing you to purchase it once, digitally on Xbox One or Windows 10, and then play it on either PC or Xbox One with your saves and achievements following you.

RE7 play anywhere

Experience Resident Evil VII in 4D thanks to Numskull’s candle

Capcom and Numskull have partnered together to bring an official Resident Evil VII 4D candle to market, along with some and other related merchandise.

The candle is said to create a 4D experience, bringing the smell of the Resident Evil VII plantation to your playing space to better immerse you in the horror. It’s being primarily marketed towards PSVR but it should prove effective when playing the upcoming horror title traditionally as well.

The 4D candle will cost you £10 in the Numskull store and comes in a metallic case with a burn time of around 25 hours.

Ben Grant, of Numskull said:

Contrary to earlier reports that jumped the gun a little, the candle definitely does not smell of blood. However, it does manage to represent the scent of the Baker House Mansion, adding to the horror, fear and adrenaline you get whilst playing the game – especially in VR.

This Official 4D candle is specifically tailored to the game and will help make you feel like you’re actually standing in the abandoned plantation house, to enhance the gaming experience

added Stefano Barolo, of Capcom.

Other products in the Numskull Resident Evil range include a snapback, a selection of t-shirts, a heat reactive mug, keyring, and leather wallet.

And yes, before anyone asks, I’ll be buying it. I’m a Resident Evil fan and a tool.

Get immersive with Resident Evil 7

The Resident Evil 7 demo, available now on Xbox One, was pretty chilling stuff – good job it was only a computer game…until now.

Have you got what it takes to experience the chills of Resident Evil 7 first hand? Then put your money where your mouth is and get your ass to London. From January 20-23 Capcom are hosting an immersive Resident Evil 7 experience.

Inspired by the events of the game, the 45 minute experience will take you on a unique storyline – did I mention that the venue is “haunted and dilapidated” in the heart of London’s East End?

You’ll be faced with puzzles and clues as you and a partner try to escape with your sanity in check. Laura Skelly, PR Manager, Capcom comments,

“For anyone who has ever wanted to enter the world of Resident Evil, now is your chance! We wanted to give fans a little glimpse into the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard gameplay, bringing it to life and allowing people to interact with the game in a brand-new way, and perhaps even having a chance encounter with some of the game’s characters. Playing on the idea of survival horror, we are really excited to see who will be able to escape the experience when it opens its doors to the public later this month.”

The immersive experience is free on a first-come first served basis and will run from January 20-23. Check out the official website for details on how you can secure your place.

Dead Rising 4’s ‘true ending’ is paid DLC

There’s been a lot of controversy surrounding Dead Rising 4, with the voice actor changes and the removal of the limit being but two of them. However, the DLC Capcom announced prior to release sounded like a promising compromise, offering the time limit in a standalone DLC called Frank Rising. Unfortunately though, fans are once again up in arms now having completed Dead Rising 4 and seen the ending.

Warning, spoiler ahead!

dead-rising-news

Chapter 6 of Dead Rising 4 surprised fans by ending the game, leaving out the traditional ‘overtime’ mode that serves as a seventh chapter. It turns out Frank Rising is that missing chapter, and will be available soon as paid DLC.

Changes to the Dead Rising formula are an expected part of the series’ evolution, but it certainly feels anti-consumer to lock away a part of the game that’s traditionally included as part of the main experience behind a pay wall.

The DLC is yet to be release, so there’s still time for Capcom to perhaps make it free and alleviate some of the bad taste fans are suffering, but we’ll have to wait and see.

Capcom announce Resident Evil 7 collectors edition, cross save and 4k support

Capcom have release some further details about their latest installment of the Resident Evil series. Resident Evil 7 :Biohazard will feature a cross save facility that will work between Xbox One and PC. Microsofts play anywhere scheme has proven to be quite successful and having played Gears of War 4 using the scheme I must say I’m a bit of a fan of it. The play anywhere scheme doesn’t go without is hiccups though and it’s unclear whether or not one purchase of Resident Evil will cover your for both the PC and Xbox One versions.

While Resident Evil 7 is looking like it will cure even the hardest case of constipation, you will be able to get it in all it’s glory  as the latest details also show that it will also be playable in 4k.

The European Collectors Edition has also been announced and will is also available for pre-order from today and includes some amazing stuff.

Included in the Resident Evil 7 biohazard Collector’s Edition:

  • Highly detailed 7” tall replica of the Baker Family Mansion
  • 20th Anniversary Resident Evil Artbook
  • Dummy Finger 16GB USB Drive
  • 5 Lithographs featuring art from Resident Evil 7 biohazard
  • An alternative inlay for your copy of the game
  • Survival Pack: Action Set DLC – which includes a number of useful consumable items and an instant unlock of the challenging ‘Madhouse’ difficulty setting
  • Premium Packaging

The premium packaging sounds interesting… oh well I hope it’s not wrapped in skin or something. You can pre-order Resident Evil 7 from Game and Amazon.co.uk only. Game will also have an exclusive Steelbook version of the game you can also pre-order. The Survival Pack: Action Set DLC is exclusive to the Collector’s Edition and Steelbook Edition of the game .

As you can see Resident Evil 7 is brushing up quite nicely. It’s nice to see Capcom going with a more atmospheric/psychological horror approach and not the action shooter style gameplay of it predecessors. With a release of January the 24th 2017 Resident Evil 7 will set the bar high for the Horror genre and I for one am really looking forward to it. With a timed release of the VR version of Resident Evil and also games such as Agony also diving into VR then there has never been a better time to test your mettle as a gamer.

 

No campaign co-op in Dead Rising 4

The hotly anticipated forth entry in the Dead Rising series is due to release in a mere few weeks, and fans are giddy with excitement. However, that giddiness might take a bit of hit with news that you won’t be able to play through the story of Dead Rising 4 with a friend after all.

This information comes fresh from a Twitch stream on the ExpertZone_Community channel, where members of the development team at Capcom Vancouver confirmed that the story of Dead Rising 4 will be single player only.

Instead, the co-op multiplayer will allow up to four players to experience an entirely separate mode with different characters. Here you’ll play short objectives, in the style of mini-games, rather than free roaming through the mall.

dead-rising-4-news-1

It certainly feels like we were all misled about the co-op content on offer here, and with other series staples like the time limit, survivor escorting, eating food to regenerate health, and Frank West’s voice actor changing, this latest entry in the series is sounding less a less like its predecessors.

And what might be the final nail in the coffin for some fans is the news that a time limit based single player mode is coming as DLC. Indeed, making people pay extra for features the series is known for that are otherwise missing, isn’t the smartest move.

New trailer for Resident Evil 7

Capcom have released a new trailer and set of screenshots at Gamescom for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.

The trailer takes us a little deeper into the horror we’ll all be immersed in when it releases early next year. We’re are introduced to Marguerite Baker alongside another mysterious female character.

Set within a sinister plantation house in Dulvey, Louisiana, former residents, the Baker family – including Jack and Marguerite – have seemingly disappeared, and there’s clearly something not quite right within the plantation.

Resident Evil 7 Gamescom 2

You’ll experience the terror directly from a first person perspective, for the first time in a numbered Resident Evil title. It intends to bring the iconic gameplay elements of exploration and tense atmosphere that the original did some twenty years ago, enhanced through disturbingly realistic visuals.

Resident Evil 7 Gamescom 1

Returning to the series roots, signature gameplay features including exploration, puzzles and a realistic tense atmosphere awaits players. The classic inventory system returns but with limited space, meaning players must choose what they carry with them carefully, making sure to pack plenty of green herbs.
