Resident Evil 7 Nears 1 Million Players, Banned Footage Vol. 1 DLC Gets a Trailer

January 31, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

A 1.3GB download, the Banned Footage Vol. 1 DLC is now available for Resident Evil 7 on PlayStation 4, priced at $9.99 USD/€9.99 or free with the Season Pass. Xbox One and PC players will have to wait until February 21 for it.

With Banned Footage Vol. 1 pack, you’ll receive Nightmare, Bedroom, and the extra game mode Ethan Must Die:

  • Nightmare – Captured by Jack Baker and tossed into the basement, Clancy’s night of terror has only just begun. Surrounded by Molded, he must survive until daylight against an endless horde of enemies. Craft weapons and ammunition, set traps, and see if you have what it takes to survive until the sun rises. You’ll have to plan carefully; picking up scrap in the environment will allow you to craft more supplies, but resources are limited!
  • Bedroom – In the fittingly-named Bedroom tape, search the room for hints on how to escape, solve puzzles, and seek a way out, all while ensuring that Marguerite doesn’t notice that you’ve been out of bed. You’ll only have so much time before she returns, so make sure that everything is exactly where it’s supposed to be — including Clancy. You won’t like the consequences if Marguerite notices something is amiss.
  • Ethan Must Die (PSVR isn’t supported) – An infinitely replayable mode that changes each time you play it thanks to randomized item drops. Designed with hardcore players in mind, dying means starting over from the beginning, but don’t lose hope just yet — randomized drops might give you the edge you need, and finding where you last died will grant you one of the items you lost. Learning where enemies spawn and where to go is key, so prepare for a tough but rewarding adventure through the Baker’s mansion!

Banned Footage Vol. 2 releases on February 14 for PS4 and February 21 for Xbox One and PC, priced at $14.99 USD/€14.99 or free with the Season Pass. Capcom says, “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’.” There’s also the ‘Jack’s 55th Birthday’ extra game mode, which doesn’t support PSVR.

Then, in spring 2017, Capcom will release the free Not a Hero DLC, which offers up a new separate storyline away from Ethan’s saga in the main game.

On the Resident Evil 7 stats site, it’s revealed that there are now 985,000 players, and 93,000 of them (9.4%) are PSVR users. As for how the player count is tallied, the site now says, “All stats taken from players who have enabled the in-game data transmission option.”

Shortly after launch, Capcom said they shipped 2.5 million copies of Resident Evil 7.
