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.
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.
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.
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.
