Capcom has announced via Famitsu magazine that it will release Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One in Japan on December 24, 2017.
This re-release of the acclaimed survival horror title features the full game, both Banned Footage DLCs, plus the all-new ‘End of Zoe’ expansion, which presumably details the exploits of Zoe Baker during the main campaign.
In addition, Capcom also confirmed that the recently delayed Not a Hero DLC, which features series veteran Chris Redfield, will be made available on December 14. As previously reported, this DLC will be released to Resident Evil 7 owners free of charge.
No details have been confirmed regarding a U.S. and European release at the time of writing, but we imagine it’s only a matter of time until we hear something.
Resident Evil 7 was released for PS4, PC, and Xbox One in January 2017. The game takes place from a first-person perspective–a first for a mainline Resident Evil title–and leverages the series’ roots to provide an authentic survival horror title with more emphasis on puzzle solving and ammo conservation.
Set in Louisiana, Resi 7 introduces a brand new protagonist in the shape of Ethan Winters, who travels to a seemingly abandoned farmhouse in search of his missing wife, Mia. However, upon exploring the property, he soon becomes embroiled in a desperate fight for survival against the malevolent and insane Baker family, while also battling against a mysterious entity known as The Molded.
Despites rave reviews, Resident Evil 7 failed to meet Capcom’s initial sales expectations, with the game’s performance tracking notably slower than that of the past few entries in the series six months into its life cycle.
Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami recently said that he’s played Resident Evil 7 on PSVR and came away quite impressed.
