GameStop Italy has leaked a Collector’s Edition of the upcoming Resident Evil 7: biohazard, featuring a wealth of physical goodies but oddly enough, not the actual game itself.
According to the retailer’s listing, the Resident Evil 7 Collector’s Edition includes a 16GB USB memory stick in the shape of the infamous dummy finger from the Resident Evil 7 demo, a 20th anniversary art book, 5 Lithographs, a model replica of the Baker family house seen in the game, and 3 alternate covers, plus exclusive in-game DLC.
The bundle will set you back €99.98, though there is an option to bundle the game with it too, which will increase the price to €150.96. Right now, it looks as if the Collector’s Edition is exclusive to Europe, although there’s a chance Capcom may confirm something for North American gamers too.
Either way, GameStop is offering a Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil 7 in the U.S., which includes the game plus a range of in-game bonuses.
Resident Evil 7 release date set for January 2017
Resident Evil 7 was announced during Sony’s E3 2016 press conference, where it was confirmed the game will ship on January 24, 2017 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. The survival horror title will also be fully playable from start to finish with PlayStation VR, a feature that will remain exclusive to PS4 for 12 months.
Set a few years after the events of Resident Evil 6, this latest instalment in the venerated horror series takes place on a mysterious plantation mansion in Louisiana, U.S., with gamers controlling newcomer Ethan as he searches for his missing wife. Along the way, he is stalked by the seemingly immortal Baker family and must battle against other mutant creatures in order to survive.
Resident Evil celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, with Capcom marking the occasion with a number of behind-the-scenes developer interviews and porting Resident Evil 4-6 over to the PS4 and Xbox One. In addition, the Japanese software giant is also working on a full-fledged remake of Resident Evil 2.
