One of Resident Evil 7′s greatest strengths is how different it is from the rest of the series. It’s got new characters, fresh environments and enemies, and no dangling, convoluted plot threads that’ve accumulated over the last 20 years. However, there must be a core fandom who want to explore what previous RE characters have been up to, so the next piece of DLC will add series regular Chris Redfield to the game. Boulder-punching not confirmed.
Capcom announced the news via twitter, sharing some artwork and the DLC’s name. It’s called Not a Hero, and sees Chris chasing down… something. The DLC will be entirely free, and launches this autumn. Resident Evil 7 is available for PC, PS4 and XBO. Check out our review for more details.
Chris Redfield shows up at the end of Resident Evil 7, revealing that he works for Umbrella. This is cause for speculation, as Umbrella are typically the villains in the RE series.
