Jan 31, 2017 // Kellen Haney

Have you had a chance to sink your teeth into Resident Evil 7 biohazard yet? Or has something sunk its teeth into you instead? Good news for those looking for more: We’ve got a preview of the “Banned Footage” DLC for you right now! New modes and more stories await you, with additional tapes about the Bakers, their mansion in Dulvey, Louisiana, and their victims. Plus, each volume of Banned Footage contains an extra mode that offers hours of gameplay. Read on for the trailer as well as more info on what to expect from these DLC packs!

Banned Footage Vol. 1 – $9.99
Available now on PS4!
Launches on all other platforms February 21st, 2017

Hope you’re not claustrophobic. Survive until daylight against an endless horde of enemies in Nightmare. Craft weapons and ammunition, set out traps for wave after wave of enemies, and see if you have what it takes to make it until the sun rises. You’ll have to plan carefully – picking up scrap in the environment will allow you to craft additional weapons, items, traps, and skills, but your resources are limited!

Waking up in an unfamiliar bedroom, a helpless captive is soon greeted by Marguerite and a very special meal. It’s up to you to figure out how to break out of a room packed with puzzles and hints on how to escape, all while ensuring that mother Marguerite doesn’t notice that you’ve been out of bed. She’s got a sharp eye, and she’ll know when something is amiss.

Extra Mode: Ethan Must Die
An endlessly replayable mode that changes each time you play it, thanks to randomized item drops which ensure you’ll never play the same way twice. Designed with hardcore players in mind, each death is a new beginning in this extra tough mode. Dying means starting over from the beginning, but don’t lose hope just yet – randomized item boxes may give you just the edge you need, and finding where you last died will grant you one of the items you lost.

Banned Footage Vol. 2 – $14.99
Available now on PS4!
Launches on all other platform February 21st, 2017

Deceptively simple at first, this gambling game is the only thing that stands between life and limb for two complete strangers. It’s blackjack with a disturbing twist in Lucas’ special version of the classic card game. The stakes couldn’t be higher, and as the game goes on, new wrinkles are added in the form of trump cards that you can play to improve your odds. It seems like the odds are stacked in favor of the house, so you’ll have to figure out how to swing things in your favor.

Take a look back at the night that everything began.  When a mysterious woman shows up at the Baker residence with a little girl in tow, it marks the beginning of the end for the Bakers. See how the family descended into madness in this tape that takes place before the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard.

Extra Mode: Jack’s 55th Birthday
Jack’s turning 55, and you know what that means – it’s time for a big birthday bash! Jack isn’t much for presents, but he sure does love a good meal! Grab some weapons and special skills, then head out into the house and race against the clock to find food for Jack while taking out enemies to temporarily stop the timer. You’ll need all the firepower you can get, but the more weapons you carry, the less room you’ll have for food! Higher grades earn you more rewards, as well as access to even more challenging maps in this highly replayable mode.

If you grabbed the Deluxe Edition or the Season Pass, you’re all set for each of these packs when they become available! You can also purchase each pack separately, with Banned Footage Vol. 1 available today on PS4 and on other platforms February 21st, and Banned Footage Vol. 2 available February 14th on PS4 and on other platforms February 21st. That’s not all, though – a third DLC pack, which we’ll have details about at a later date, will also be available and is included in the Deluxe Edition and Season Pass. Plus, Not A Hero, a free story DLC that takes place separately from the events of Resident Evil 7 biohazard, is also coming this Spring!

The family is waiting for you in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, available now !
