Resident Evil 7 - Not A Hero DLC Delayed

Image

Today Capcom have released a statement providing an update on the first storyline expansion pack for Resident Evil 7, entitled 'Not A Hero.' This DLC was originally scheduled to arrive by Spring 2017 but that will now no longer be the case.

"Dear Resident Evil Ambassadors,

First of all, as always, thank you for your support of the Resident Evil series.

We have some important news for you today: we have decided to delay the release of the free Not a Hero DLC which was previously announced as coming in Spring 2017. The reason for this delay is that the content was simply not at the level of quality we know our fans expect and deserve.
In order to make sure we can deliver a great experience, we are going to take some more time to improve and polish this content.

As the Resident Evil 7 team wanted to let our fans know personally about this news, they have recorded a short video message which you can view below."

A video message from Masachika Kawata, Koshi Nakanishi and Jun Takeuchi can be viewed here.

Biohazard: The Experience

Image

Biohazard: The Experience is a follow-up to the highly-praised Biohazard: The Stage which ran in Japan a few years back. The Experience is written and produced by the same creative team and is supervised by Hiroyuki Kobayashi. This story is unrelated to the original and has a more claustrophobic, mystery focus in contrast to the action-packed original. Here is the official synopsis:

“…What the hell is this place?”
They are in the room of a house that is unfamiliar. For some unknown reason thirteen men and women have been brought there in their sleep, and now begin to rouse. They don’t know if they should exchange names, or if their identities are real, but what they do know is they must stick together to survive and escape.

“There’s a strange figure nearby!”
The mysterious person gives off a foul odour. A zombie. Emotions get heated, and when one of them gets bitten the fear reaches its peak. What once was human is human no more. While maintaining as much dignity and conscience as possible, they must kill the infected in order to survive.
They begin to doubt one another yet need strength in order to escape.
What on earth is this, and for what purpose do they hold?


The play has just completed its run in Japan but Biohazard: The Experience will be available to purchase on 2-disc DVD this coming July.

Resident Evil 7 Chris Redfield Design Clarification

Image

In a recent blog post, the game's director Koushi Nakanishi clarified that the character in Not a Hero (and the game's ending) uses the new design for Chris Redfield. The change was due to game's use of photogrammetry, and they felt the older RE5 & 6 design wouldn't fit the art direction of the game.
