The second batch of Resident Evil 7 DLC – titled Banned Footage Vol. 2 – is now available for PlayStation 4 players and is scheduled to arrive later for Xbox One owners.
Resident Evil 7 was released to critical acclaim just last month and has already pulled in some impressive sales numbers, managing to log in the 3rd best launch week debut in franchise history. While many would be happy to take it easy after having a title ship 2.5 million copies in its first week, Capcom isn’t resting its laurels just yet. Following the release of the first batch of post-launch DLC – titled Banned Footage Vol. 1 – a mere two weeks ago, the studio have now released the second expansion pack for those itching for more survival-horror thrills.
Titled Banned Footage Vol. 2, this second batch of Resident Evil 7 post-launch DLC is now available to PlayStation 4 players and is scheduled to arrive on Xbox One on February 24. Following the same structure as Banned Footage Vol 1, Banned Footage Vol. 2 again revolves around the Baker family and contains three new ordeals for players to tackle:
- 21: Gamble life and limb in a deadly game run by Lucas Baker.
- Daughters: See what the Baker family was like before the tragic events of Resident Evil 7.
- Jack’s 55th Birthday: Race against the clock and feed Jack tons of food in this comical extra game mode that’s separate from the tapes and story of the main game.
The first two game modes are canon to Resident Evil 7‘s main narrative and help fill in some story gaps, much in the same way as the various videotapes featured in the game do. As for the third mode, not only is this is a lighthearted, non-canon chapter, PlayStation VR owners will have to make do without the use of the headset as this game mode doesn’t support it.
For those interested in picking up Resident Evil 7‘s Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC, there are two different ways in which it can be done. This new expansion can be bought as a standalone item for $15, or it can be purchased alongside the earlier Banned Footage Vol.1 DLC and a currently-unknown story expansion as part of the $30 season pass.
In addition to the two paid expansion packs, players can look also look forward to some additional free Resident Evil 7 DLC, which is arriving at some point this Spring. With so much post-launch DLC already released and with more still to come, Capcom are certainly committed to supporting the survival-horror game for the foreseeable future. While the positive reviews and impressive sales haven’t prevented Capcom’s stock from falling, hopefully the studio’s ambitious post-launch plans for Resident Evil 7 will pay dividends soon enough.
Resident Evil 7 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC is available now for PlayStation 4 and is scheduled for launch on February 24 for Xbox One.
