Resident Evil 7 serves Banned Footage DLCs on PC today

Meat and monsterhats

Two ghostloads of new scares arrive in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard [official site] today with the launch of the 'Banned Footage' DLC packs. Each adds a mish-mash of new story bits and modes, from escaping a room while in the watchful care of a cannibal to betting your fingers in a Saw-like game of Blackjack. Awful. These DLC packs have been out on PlayStation 4 for a bit because of exclusivity shenanigans but hey, this means I got to live a bit longer without seeing that awful Blackjack. Warning: it is awful. However, the monster wearing a jaunty hat is great. Swings and roundabouts.

So! Banned Footage Volume 1 two new story episodes is Nightmare, which shores what happened to Sewer Gators cameraman Clancy after he got separated. Turns out, he spent a night crafting weapons and setting traps in a wave survival mode. Clancy returns in the tape Bedroom (not to be confused with a bedroom tape), where he's being cared for by Marguerite and tries to escape in-between her visits to check up and serve awful stew. It involves a lot of ducking back to bed and hiding your escape attempts. Vol. 1 also adds Ethan Must Die mode, which has randomised item drops.

Over in Volume 2, you get to play Blackjack with your fingers at stake. Another tape is a bit of a prequel, exploring what happened way back when on The Night When Things Started To Go Bad At The Mansion. Also new is Jack's 55th Birthday, a minigame mode where players get to be Mia racing against a timer to gather food for Jack while killing enemies.

Vol. 1 is £7.99/9,99€/$9.99 on Steam, Vol. 2 is £11.99/14,99€/$14.99, and both come with a mysterious future story DLC in the DLC season pass for £24.99/29,99€/$29.99.

The packs are "coming soon" for the Windows 10 store version, Capcom said today; did anyone buy that? Genuine question.

Another question: isn't this ↓ awful?
