Resident Evil VII Banned Footage DLC Now Available

Capcom are pleased to announce the launch of the initial content packs for their amazing first-person survival horror hit of 2017, Resident Evil VII, with Banned Footage Vol. 1 & Vol. 2 DLC.

Available today for all Season Pass owners on Xbox One and Steam (sorry Win 10 Store owners, you’ll have to wait) and also available to purchase individually for those not savvy to Season Passes, with Vol. 1 locked in at $9.99 USD and Vol. 2 set to $14.99 USD. Each DLC Volume comes packed with an extra mode and two banned footage scenarios, “Nightmare”, “Bedroom” and “Ethan Must Die” are packaged with Vol. 1 and “Daughters”, “21”, and Jack’s 55th Birthday” are included with Vol. 2.

Koshi Nakanishi, Resident Evil VII’s Director had this to say, “As with the main game, the found footage tape idea lets us explore things that didn’t happen all in sequence, but rather to different people at different times. So players can start a DLC tape and not be sure where they even are – and of course, it means the player can die at the end”.

So basically, the insane team behind Resident Evil VII have taken three of the games pivotal aspects, combat, horror and puzzles, and explored each concept quite extensively, focusing on each for the varying Banned Footage volumes. “Nightmare” focal point is purely combat driven, while “Bedroom” focuses on the sheer horror of being force feed some of Marguerites lovely fine dining…until you die!

All and all, the above mentioned content sounds like a fresh batch of awesomeness to an already remarkable game, further bolstering the sick and twisted reality that is Resident Evil VII. I’ve beaten the game twice, and while I did enjoy every minute of it, there wasn’t a whole lot left else to do that I haven’t already experienced, as such, the first content packs are something I’m extremely excited to dive into later today.

Now to sit and wait in hopes that Capcom decide to release at some later date an official “Old-school” ZOMBIES mode, as I mentioned, I adored Resident Evil VII, but it was lacking the most crucial of Resident Evil aspects… zombies! Please, please, please Capcom, fix that!


Official Press Release

Resident Evil 7 biohazard DLC Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 launch today on Xbox One and Steam with Windows 10 coming soon. Banned Footage Vol. 1 is available for £7.99/€9.99, while Banned Footage Vol. 2 is available for £11.99/€14.99. Both volumes will also be readily available for players who have purchased either the Deluxe Edition or Season Pass. Each pack includes two banned footage scenarios and an extra mode: Vol. 1 includes “Nightmare,” “Bedroom” and “Ethan Must Die”, while Vol. 2 includes “Daughters”, “21,” and “Jack’s 55th Birthday”. All Banned Footage DLC is also available to download on PlayStation 4.

Director of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Koshi Nakanishi said “Resident Evil 7 features a blend of horror, combat and puzzle-solving, so I wanted to use the DLC to explore each of those concepts separately in depth”. “As with the main game, the found footage tape idea lets us explore things that didn’t happen all in sequence, but rather to different people at different times. So players can start a DLC tape and not be sure where they even are – and of course, it means the player can die at the end”.

We had more freedom in the DLC to let the team try different things. Each of the experiences lets us explore one concept in depth in a way, so for Nightmare it was pure combat. In Bedroom, I wanted to show Marguerite in detail and give players a chance to finally try the food she got so upset you didn’t eat in the dinner scene. You can literally eat it until it kills you”.
