Resident Evil 7’s Banned Footage DLC Coming to Steam Feb 21st

Posted on 31 Jan 2017 by

The use of the mini stories on VHS tapes in a game like Resident Evil 7 is quite fitting, so it’s not surprising that most if not all DLC will be built around such mini stories. Sadly, you won’t need to search for the VHS tapes in the game, but rather just look for them in main menu. Bit of a missed opportunity if you ask me.

“Nightmare” the first of three parts from the Banned Footage Vol.1 DLC will have you searching around for crafting stuff to craft more stuff so you can kill hordes of…zombies. Yay. The more interesting part 2, “Bedroom” will have you escape from a, you guessed it, bedroom where the odd Marguerite Baker locked you in. These two DLC’s let you play as the cameraman Clancy that you’ve probably played in the first VHS tape from the main game. The third DLC, “Ethan must die”, is a unique ‘tough’ mode that isn’t part of the main story. Whatever that means, I’m intrigued to find out.

Banned Footage Vol.2 will feature another 3 mini episodes yet again. “21” lets you gamble your life with Lucas in a game of 21, “Daugthers” has you explore the Bakers family before the events of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and in “Jack’s 55th Birthday” you will serve treats for Daddy Baker until the clock runs out. Maybe it’s Cooked, Serve, Delicious in RE7 form, who knows!

All of these DLC’s are sadly timed exclusive for PS4. But not for long since both Banned Footage Vol.1 and Vol.2 will arrive on Steam Feburary 21st.  Capcom will also release a free DLC called “Not a Hero” in Spring 2017 which is going to be another separate story away from Ethan’s.

Official Press Release

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 £7.99/ €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 £11.99 / €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. Finally, 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.
