Like any horror villain worth their cleaver, Resident Evil 7 (opens in new tab) is coming back just when you thought it gone for good. Capcom announced Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition on Tuesday, a bundled-up package featuring the original game and all of its DLC. It's coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on December 12. Capcom didn't specify the price, but these kinds of all-in-one re-releases typically have the same price as the original game did at launch.
For reference, here's everything included in Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition.
- Main game: Resident Evil 7 Biohazard
- Paid DLC: Banned Footage Vol. 1 (Nightmare, Bedroom, and Ethan Must Die mode)
- Paid DLC: Banned Footage Vol. 2 (21, Daughters, and Jack's 55th Birthday mode)
- Upcoming paid DLC: End of Zoe
- Upcoming free DLC: Not a Hero
Both End of Zoe and Not a Hero will be made available for previous RE7 owners on December 12 as well. Spoiler alert: I'm going to talk about what's in the upcoming DLC now, and some of it will spoil details from the main game. Don't scroll past this capybara-and-ducklings gif if you'd rather come into the whole thing fresh.
End of Zoe explores the fate of the Bakers' daughter after the end of RE7, and Not a Hero lets you play as Chris Redfield (who you meet in the main game). Being an old hand at this kind of thing - assuming he really is our Chris - Redfield comes loaded for bear with the proper equipment for taking down the biological threats within the Baker estate. That should make for a pretty different play experience.
