Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Vol. 1 goes live today. Are you prepared?

Resident Evil 7 can be finished pretty quickly if you know what you’re doing (as you would if you’re read our Resident Evil 7 guide and walkthrough, plug plug) but do not fear: more content is already on the way.

The first of Capcom’s announced DLC packs, Resident Evil 7: Banned Footage Vol. 1, arrives today (unless you’re in the US, in which case please reread this article in a few hours when you’ve caught up to the rest of the timezones we service around here).

Since it is naturally hoping you’ll buy the Season Pass, Capcom has already supplied details of the first two Resident Evil 7 DLC packs. This one has two new chapters and a whole extra mode:

  • Bedroom
    Figure out how to escape from a locked room – but don’t let Marguerite Baker know you’ve been out of bed.
  • Nightmare
    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)

Banned Footage Vol 1. costs $10, but the next one will be $15. The Resident Evil 7 Season pass is $30 and includes both as well as the as-yet-undetailed extra story chapter, which one would hope would be a bit more substantial than these two rapid fire packs, given their pricing relative to the whole pass and release so close to the main game. There’s supposed to be a free content drop coming in northern spring, which may give us a clue on the timing of the mysterious extra chapter.

Resident Evil 7 is out now on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and by all accounts is both a return to the classic formula and scary as heck, if not as long as some of the faithful would have liked.
