Today, Capcom’s highly anticipated horror game Resident Evil 7: Biohazard launches onto PS4 (with PlayStation VR support), PC, and Xbox One, both digitally, and at retail at the price point of $59.99 USD. Yup, that’s right, the series (which has sold over 71 million units worldwide to date) that first coined the “survival horror” term some twenty years ago is back.
The following overview of the game is provided:
Resident Evil 7 biohazard introduces players to Ethan Winters, who has been led to Dulvey, Louisiana in search of his missing wife. There he comes upon a sinister and supposedly abandoned plantation. Upon entering the property it becomes clear that there are secrets to unveil and all is not as it seems. Ethan soon encounters the mysterious Baker family, who have been missing from the area for some time. Will Ethan ever be reunited with his wife? Players will unfold all the secrets behind the mysterious plot as they embark on this truly terrifying and unpredictable survival horror experience.
Capcom has said it will continue to support the release of Resident Evil 7 after launch with optional downloadable content. The first of this DLC will come shortly after launch and include Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Banned Footage Vol. 2, which will deliver two further scenarios and an extra bonus mode for players to dive into. Following this, an additional story episode, Not a Hero, will be released for free to all players in spring 2017, and will introduce players to a new separate storyline.
The Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Banned Footage Vol. 2 content, along with an additional downloadable story episode, can be obtained via the Season Pass and deluxe editions of the game. The DLC will also be available for purchase separately, with more details to be shared soon.
