How to Play Resident Evil 7 Banned Footage Vol. 1
The Resident Evil 7 DLC won’t be seen by playing through the main game. Instead, a new option called “Extra Content” will pop out in the menu between the options “Load Game,” and “More.” Just select Extra Content, and choose between Banned Footage and Ethan Must Die.
The Banned Footage menu contains two video tapes which allow gamers to play two new scenarios. Nightmare is a horde mode where they must survive the night in the Baker Main House basement. They’ll be able to collect Scrap from Compactors that generate it as time goes on. Now, they can then use the Scrap to buy weapons, items, and ammo to continue fighting the Molded. They can also spend the Scrap to build traps to help avoid enemies.
The second scenario in Banned Footage is Bedroom. Bedroom is a canon story DLC which includes Clancy Javis’ successful escape from Marguerite after the Resident Evil 7 Twilight Demo. Instead of being action-packed, Bedroom shows a devious puzzle that players must figure out to escape.
The new gameplay mode, Ethan Must Die, is for those who thought Madhouse Mode was easy. They must escape the Baker House, which has been filled with traps, enemies, and randomized items. In addition, Ethan has much lower health, and it takes little to nothing to kill the character.
