The 1.02 update has been released for Resident evil 7, which comes ahead of the release of the Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC on PS4 today. While the update does address some small bugs that are present in the game, it also adds several new trophies that tie in with the new DLC. The trophy list was posted on Reddit, though beware of slight spoilers.
The Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC includes three new modes, which are 21, Daughters, and Jack’s 55th Birthday. While it can be purchased as standalone content for $15, it is also included with the game’s season pass. It’s currently only available to download on PlayStation 4, though Xbox One and PC players will be able to join in on the fun on February 21st.
Despite there already being two substantial DLC releases for Resident Evil 7, there’s actually more on the horizon. Capcom has announced that there will be a free DLC coming this Spring called Not a Hero, which focuses on a new character. While the identity of this character has not been detailed by Capcom, they claim that it is someone you will be familiar with if you have completed the game. This will be followed by another DLC, though this one has not yet been detailed.
The game has been doing well in the sales department so far, with Capcom confirming that the game has shipped over 3 million copies worldwide. It’s not selling as well as Resident Evil 5 or 6 did, but those games also had bigger budgets. The company is aiming to have it sell 4 million copies by the end of March, and it’s in a good position to do that.
Resident Evil 7 is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, and is fully playable from start to finish in PlayStation VR. We loved the game, giving it 4.5/5 stars in our review of it. We said that it’s “A true return to form for the long running series, Resident Evil 7 reinvents itself while still retaining that classic RE feel. Delivering a real horror experience, the game can definitely scare, but it also just works as a fun and engaging survival experience.”
