Busting through the walls just in time for Christmas lunch, Capcom’s hillbilly cannibal-’em-up is getting a Gold Edition on 12 December, featuring the original game with its two previously launched DLCs, plus two new ones, wrapped up in Auntie Betsy-Ray’s guts. Oh, you shouldn’t have.
The DLC includes Banned Footage Vol. 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2, and the new End of Zoe, a “shocking installment”, according to the press stuff, which reveals the presumably very gross fate of the Bakers’ daughter. Besides these, Capcom is also releasing the delayed, but now totally free as a consolation prize Not a Hero DLC at the same time, an epilogue chapter that “brings a brand new experience playing as Chris to face new threats not met in the main game”.
Despite its questionable bosses and somewhat inconsistent narrative, I thought Resident Evil 7 was a superb game, mashing up campy Texas Chainsaw Massacre nostalgia with contemporary sophistication.
