The impending launch of Resident Evil 7 has fans gripping their seats in anticipation. However, a Day One patch is already in the slate. How does this affect the overall impression for the game?
Resident Evil 7 getting a Day One patch is a normal trend across videogames. After all, not all first-day releases are perfect. Developers may be getting to see bugs just before release, and Day One patches serve to fix them.
However, the Resident Evil 7 patch appears to not just fix problems. Players who download the Day One patch will be getting a few freebies of their own. If it does help players face the horrors inside the Baker Manor, then by all means – patch away.
Resident Evil 7: Trophies, Add-Ons
The game will be officially launching tomorrow, and fans are already gearing up for massive changes in the franchise. Players will finally be able to find out for themselves if the newest title is a revolution in survival horror gaming. Regardless, Capcom still took the time to release a rather modest Day One patch for the game.
Interestingly, according to ThisGenGaming, the patch does not appear to go beyond 1GB. The game’s first patch was released today for people with early copies of the game. The game’s 1.0.1 patch is only 806.2MB, and only adds a few trophies and fixes small bugs.
The patch supposedly allows the game to support add-ons and notifications for additional chapters. Aside from fixing certain bugs and issues, it also added new trophies. These are:
- Dead By Dawn? – Complete Nightmare. – Bronze
- Sleepless In Dulvey – Complete Night Terror – Silver
- Like Mama Used To Make – Complete Bedroom – Bronze
- Ratcatcher – Find all the dead rats in Bedroom in a single play – Silver
- Ethan Never Dies – Complete Ethan Must Die – Gold
It can be noted that the patch does not add anything very exciting to the game. According to Game Rant, this is good news as this is an indication that the game has been shipped in good working condition. Early reviews themselves already indicate that the game is a certified hit, meaning Capcom may have done its mission.
The early demo of the game is in itself an indication that the game has a lot of secrets for people to solve. Hopefully, players get to solve controversies such as the dummy finger, something that stumped players of the demo. The game’s new first-person perspective and virtual reality support are already hallmarks in the horror industry, and Capcom appears to want to add more.
If the patch is any indication, it seems Capcom is planning to add more chapters to expand the game. This means the base game may be a primary story, with more chapters being added to expand the game’s mythos. Interested fans can grab the game as it launches today, January 24, for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
