Earlier today, Capcom announced a complete version of Resident Evil 7. This complete title, Resident Evil 7: biohazard Gold Edition will release on December 12th for Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Much like the previous Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, this version of Resident Evil 7 comes with all DLC included. This includes all the Season Pass content released thus far which is Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Banned Footage Vol. 2, as well as two upcoming pieces of DLC.

The first of these DLCs is the third piece of Season Pass content, called End of Zoe. As you might expect, players will assume the role of Zoe Baker. The press release promises this story segment to be “shocking” and will wrap up the story of the youngest Baker family member. It will remain close to the main game’s style of horror, and there will apparently be several new swampy areas to explore. End of Zoe will also be available to Season Pass owners. However, you can download it separately for $14.99/€14.99/£11.99.

Also included in Resident Evil 7: biohazard Gold Edition is the Not a Hero DLC episode, which now finally has a release date after a delay from the original Spring 2017 timeframe. This episode will take place after the events of the main game. Players will get to assume the role of series veteran Chris Redfield. Chris now works for a new organization aptly named New Umbrella. Redfield and his team will have to contend with “new threats not met in the main game”. Not a Hero will be more action-packed than the main campaign according to Capcom.

As promised after the credits of the main campaign in Resident Evil 7, Not a Hero will be a free download for any and all players on December 12th alongside the release of Resident Evil 7: biohazard Gold Edition. Capcom didn’t give a price for the title, only that it will release on December 12th, 2017.

TechRaptor originally gave Resident Evil 7: biohazard a stellar 9.5 in our review of the title. Our reviewer Samuel Guglielmo cited it as a revival of the series managing to return to the series roots while keeping elements of the modern title.

Quick Take

While Capcom didn’t give a price for the game, it’s fair to assume it’ll be a full-price $60 title. The game won’t even be a year old by that point, and it includes all the DLC as well.
