Well, Resident Evil 7 has only been out for a week and apparently that’s long enough time for some new content. Today, developer Capcom has released the first DLC for the game called Banned Footage: Volume One with Volume Two to follow next month.
As confirmed at PSX 2016, PlayStation 4 players will be getting the two Banned Footage add-on content packs for Resident Evil 7 biohazard first. Each pack includes two banned footage scenarios and an extra mode. A brand new trailer is now available from the press site inventory here, providing a look at the twisted horrors that await in the Banned Footage packs.
Banned Footage Vol. 1 is available today for PlayStation 4 players for €9.99 / $9.99 and will also be readily available for consumers who have purchased either the Deluxe Edition or Season Pass. This Vol. 1 pack includes Nightmare, where Sewer Gators cameraman Clancy must craft weapons and ammo to face off against hordes of enemies to survive until morning. Also included is Bedroom where Clancy must figure out how to get out of a locked bedroom in the Baker family’s plantation and make his escape but beware – Marguerite Baker won’t be happy if she knows he’s up and out of bed! Along with both of these scenarios is an infinitely replayable extra game mode called Ethan Must Die, which is an extra tough mode that is separate from the events of RE7. (Please note that PSVR is not supported in Ethan Must Die.)
Following this, Banned Footage Vol. 2 will be available for PlayStation 4 owners on February 14th at a price of €14.99 / $14.99. In this Vol. 2 pack, the “banned footage” scenarios include 21 and Daughters. Players will need to gamble with their own life in a deadly game of 21 with Lucas Baker and then dive deeper into the Baker family’s life before the tragic events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard in Daughters. An extra gameplay mode titled Jack’s 55th Birthday provides a race against the clock as players serve up the Daddy of the family, Jack Baker, with tons of treats for his special celebration. (Please note that PSVR is not supported in Jack’s 55th Birthday.)
Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 will be available to purchase for all other platforms on February 21st. Deluxe Edition and Season Pass owners will get the Banned Footage contents as they release per above and an additional story episode with more details to come. In addition, in spring 2017, all players will have access to the free Not a Hero content, introducing players to a new separate storyline away from Ethan’s saga in the main game.
