With plenty of new things to do in the old Baker estate, Resident Evil’s Banned Footage is here.
Played REVII yet? Beat it? Well then hang on for a bit, cause there’s plenty more to do, and it starts right now. The Banned Footage packs are set to offer gamers two new ‘banned footage’ scenarios and an extra mode each. And best of all, one of them is here today. Well, if you’re gaming on a PS4 that is.
Yes horror fans, Sony’s console gets both packs first, as announced at last year’s PSX. Though gamers on the Xbox One and PC won’t have to wait all that long before they get to sink their teeth in either. But before we get to release dates, let’s talk content.
Here’s what’s included in today’s Banned Footage Vol.1:
Banned Footage Vol. 1 is available today for PlayStation 4 players for €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.”)
As for Banned Footage Vol. 2, that’ll be along late next month, and will include:
Following this, Banned Footage Vol. 2 will be available for PlayStation 4 owners on February 14th at a price of €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.”)
Now, let’s chat about those release dates. While Banned Footage Vol.1 is available right now for PS4 gamers, with Vol.2 on tap for the 14th (how romantic), Xbox One and PC gamers will have to wait till the end(ish) of next month. Both will go on sale at the same time, on February 21st. That is, unless you have the Season Pass.
Gamers who bought in for that, will get the new content as it releases, according to Capcom. Also if you have a Pass, you’re in for additional story content, set to arrive some time down the line. Then there’s Not a Hero too. That will allow players the chance to play “a new separate storyline away from Ethan’s saga in the main game.” Look for that this Spring.
Looks like you’ll be staying in the Baker’s humble abode a little longer than you thought…
