The day is finally here. Resident Evil 7 biohazard is available now for PS4, Xbox One, and PC! Capcom has listened to what fans want from the Resident Evil franchise, and with RE7, you can experience the true fear that fans have come to expect from Resident Evil in the twisted corridors of a mansion in Dulvey, Louisiana. Check out the latest trailer right after the jump, and read on for more of what you can expect from RE7.
There are echoes of the series’ survival horror roots in Resident Evil 7 biohazard. Ethan Winters, searching for his missing wife, Mia, finds himself exploring a dilapidated plantation house in Louisiana, drawing parallels to Raccoon City’s S.T.A.R.S. team exploring an old mansion in the Arklay Mountains. You won’t have time to comment on the splendor of this mansion, though – unlike the S.T.A.R.S. team, Ethan is just an ordinary man in a terrifying situation. Before long, Ethan finds himself face to face with the Baker family, who nobody has heard from in several years. In fact, not all is well at the old Baker house at all; the entire mansion seems to be falling apart, and there’s something seriously wrong with the residents, too. The family is waiting for you in this house of horrors, and as you make your way through the mansion, you’ll have to make some hard decisions in classic survival horror fashion. Do you take your chances and fight back against the terrors that await you, or will you try to conserve your resources and run away? The members of the Baker family aren’t the only creatures lurking in the hallways, so you’ll have to plan ahead.
That’s not all we have for you today, though; two additional DLC packs will be available very soon! These packs are available in the Deluxe Edition version of the game as well as the Season Pass, and can also be purchased separately. The first pack, Banned Footage Vol. 1, will be available on PS4 starting on January 31st, and on all other platforms February 21st, for $9.99. This includes two pieces of “Banned Footage” as well as a new mode:
Bedroom: Figure out how to escape from a locked room – but don’t let Marguerite Baker know you’ve been out of bed.
Nightmare: Fend off waves of enemies and survive until morning.
Extra Mode – Ethan Must Die : A tough-as-nails mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)
In addition, a second pack, Banned Footage Vol. 2, will be available on PS4 starting February 14th, and on all other platforms starting February 21st, for $14.99. This pack includes two more tape scenarios and a new mode:
21: Gambe life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker.

Extra Mode – Jack’s 55th Birthday: Race against the clock and feed Jack tons of food in this comical extra game mode separate from the tapes and story of the main game. (Does not support PSVR)
