Resident Evil 7 has only been out for a week and so far it is proving that the team has what it takes to bring the franchise back to its roots and to carry on well after this installment. Now we get to see just how well as the first batch of DLC for the game has just dropped for the PS4 as Capcom and PlayStation are in bed together for now. Not the biggest news here as we knew that Resident Evil 7 was going to be getting its DLC fairly early on but what wasn't known is just when gamers on the Xbox One and PC version of the game would be getting their turn. That day has been set as each of the "Banned Footage" packs here have been dated for February 21st now so fans can sit back and wait to see what the Season Pass holds for them then. Only a few extra weeks when all is said and done though so not too bad.
Now that the date has been set one would think that there wouldn't be much more than just to wait. Not true here as the Resident Evil 7 DLC here has been given further details and a nice new trailer to try and bring in those last hold outs on purchasing the packs. While none of it is claimed to be story DLC though, it sure sounds like there is some mixed in there as we get to learn about what happened to the Bakers before Resident Evil 7 proper and it looks like we get to play out the events of some of the other characters who met a tragic end at the mansion there. It makes sense given some of the bits found across the entire estate already but I have a feeling that we'll just be wearing the Ethan skin to play it all out for now. Maybe the future holds some different things though.
Resident Evil 7 — Banned Footage
At first I was a bit surprised that Capcom would be throwing the Resident Evil 7 DLC out this fast, even for the non-PS4 owners. After having started the game just recently though and digging into it fairly well, it makes a lot more sense to me. I am also glad to see that the "comedic" sounding birthday feeding will be filled with more survival and horror than previously expected. At least this new description and showing place it more in line with what has been experienced so far in Resident Evil 7 and not something just because they needed to fill in some DLC slots. Hopefully the rest will be the same way and the true story DLC will take us into an even darker and twisted world than we have already. I know I can't wait; hence why I have Resident Evil 7 on the PS4 and am downloading the DLC as I type.
What is your takeaway on the Resident Evil 7 "Banned Footage" DLC as it stands now? Are you going to have to wait an extra three weeks to give it all a go or will you be diving in as soon as it is up and on your system here today? Do you think that even though it isn't listed as story DLC it really is here or will the other episodes prove that this is nothing in terms of real story add-ons? Let us know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss. For more on Resident Evil 7 as it expands, be sure to stay right here. We'll be bringing all of the great updates for the game as they come and you won't want to be left waiting and wanting.
