The Official 'Banned Footage' Trailer

Release Date: Jan. 31, 2017

Volume 1 of "Banned Footage" was the first DLC released for RE7. Fans that were hungry for more RE7 welcomed the DLC with open arms, and it remains a fan favorite. With 2 new videotapes and a new game mode, there's no shortage of quality content!

What's Great About "Banned Footage Vol. 1"

  • The 2 videotapes focus on Clancy as he endures captivity and torture at the hands of the Baker family. You'll dive back into the depravity while you struggle to keep Clancy alive.
  • The new game mode puts you back into Ethan's shoes in a test of skills. While the map is familiar, it places ranked item chests into the environment as well as spawning traps and enemies in different spots.
  • This DLC pack sticks closer to the familiar style of the main game.

DLC Features

  • "Bedroom." The bedroom videotape plunges Clancy into Marguerite's grasp. Momma Baker holds Clancy captive in bed while she encourages him to eat the less-than-savory dinner she made for him. You're tasked with finding an escape without Marguerite catching on to your efforts. The anxiety about being discovered leaves you on edge through the entire videotape!
  • "Nightmare." This tape again focuses on Clancy as he's locked in the basement to face the horde of Molded. If "Nightmare" isn't enough for you, the "Night Terror" mode will give you a run for your money! Survive until dawn if you can!
  • "Ethan Must Die." This survival minigame lands Ethan in the yard surrounded by enemies and traps. Armed with only a pocketknife, Ethan must fight his way through the map, searching for more weapons and supplies in chests. Enemies also deal more damage, intensifying your survival experience. "Normal" mode places enemies and chests in fixed spots, while "Strategy" mode randomizes locations for added difficulty.
  • This DLC pack also comes in the Season Pass and Gold Edition.

Price: $9.99
