“End of Zoe” and long-delayed “Not a Hero” are finally coming to Resident Evil 7 this December.
After launching in the end of January, Resident Evil 7 became a surprising hit after years of lukewarm installments. Shortly after launch, Capcom released small DLC add-ons in the form of “Banned Footage Vol. 1” and “Banned Footage Vol. 2” that contained short gameplay sections that expanded the twisted lore surrounding the Bakers. Still, thanks to a teaser at the end of the main story, Capcom made it clear that fan favorite Chris Redfield would make a return in a free DLC called “Not a Hero” – which was originally scheduled for a Spring 2017 release.
Citing a desire to up the quality of the DLC, Capcom delayed “Not a Hero” leaving fans in silence for months. Today, Capcom broke that silence announcing that “Not a Hero” and another previously unannounced DLC, “End of Zoe” would be releasing on December 12, 2017. On the same date, Capcom is releasing Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition, which includes the base game and the entire suite of DLC, including “End of Zoe” and “Not a Hero.” Back in January, Capcom launched the Deluxe Edition of the game, which offers the exact same thing, only Gold Edition will retail at $59.99 USD when it launches in December instead of the $89.99 price point that Deluxe debuted at earlier this year.
Capcom confirmed that season pass owners of the game will also be getting the “End of Zoe” DLC free of charge. Those without can simply buy the DLC à la carte for $14.99 USD on December 12. “End of Zoe” gives greater context to Zoe’s fate after her somewhat vague departure in the main game. The DLC will introduce new enemies and new swamp areas for the player to explore.
Resident Evil 7 Biohazard is available now in both Standard and Deluxe Editions. The Gold Edition will debut alongside the two new DLC installments on December 12, 2017. “Not a Hero” will be free to all and “End of Zoe” will be $14.99 to anyone without the Deluxe or Gold Editions of the game.
