While we knew the basics regarding the DLC that was planned for Capcom’s Resident Evil 7, now the developer has officially detailed what is in store. The announcement was made to coincide with the game’s launch today, and some will be able to get the DLC sooner than others.
Capcom revealed in a blog post that they have a timed-exclusivity deal with Sony, so all of the game’s DLC will be coming to PlayStation 4 first. They revealed that the first expansion called Banned Footage Vol. 1 would be launching on January 31st on PlayStation 4, though Xbox One and PC gamers won’t be able to get it until February 21st. This DLC can be purchased individually for $10 or as part of the $30 season pass.
They also shared details on what the Banned Footage Vol. 1 DLC includes, which is the following:
- Bedroom Scenario: Figure out how to escape from a locked room, but don’t let Marguerite Baker know you’ve been out of bed.
- Nightmare Scenario: Fend off waves of enemies and survive until morning.
- Extra Mode – Ethan Must Die: A tough-as-nails mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)
This will be followed shortly by the Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC, which will launch on PlayStation 4 on February 14th and then come to Xbox One and PC on February 21st. This one is a little more expensive at $15, though it is also included with the season pass. It contains the following:
- 21 Scenario: Gamble life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker.
- Daughters Scenario: See what the Baker family was like before the tragic events of Resident Evil 7.
- Extra Mode – Jack’s 55th Birthday: Race against the clock and feed Jack tons of food in this comical extra game mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)
Capcom ends the post by informing everyone that “those of you with a 4K TV and a PS4 Pro, you’ll be able to enjoy full 4K resolution with incredibly crisp graphics and even more detailed textures. Plus, Resident Evil 7 biohazard will be able to take advantage of HDR on compatible TVs, no matter what model of PS4 you have. If you have an Xbox One or Xbox One S, you’ll be able to take advantage of HDR on compatible televisions as well. For PC players, there are a plethora of options to tweak your RE experience to your liking.”
Resident Evil 7 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. A launch trailer for the game was also released, which you can check out below.
