Resident Evil 7 free DLC, ‘Not a Hero,’ delayed

Resident Evil 7
Resident Evil 7 did a great job of bringing the series back to its creepy survival horror roots. I don’t mind what it became leading up to Resident Evil 4. However, RE5 and RE6 just felt a bit lacking. It just became an action-based game more than anything. Originally, Capcom announced that Resident Evil 7 would be far from over. A new piece of DLC, ‘Not a Hero’, will have players taking on the role of Chris Redfield. The DLC was scheduled to be released in the following months, but it has been delayed to improve the quality of the content.

The announcement was made via a three-minute Youtube video. It featured Resident Evil 7 Director Koshi Nakanishi and Producer Masachika Kawata.

“We got close to completing the game content,” said Nakanishi. “However, in light of the incredible reception to the release of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that this DLC was not good enough to meet those high expectations.”

“Our aim is for this content to match the high quality of the main game, so we need more development time in order to achieve that goal,” added Kawata.

I’m very impressed with Capcom for taking the time to make a great piece of content, especially since it’s free. The last time I really wanted to play something that would further expand the story, or actually, in this case, play the real final stage and get the true ending was Asura’s Wrath. And it would have cost me $15.

It was also revealed that new piece of DLC for Resident Evil 7 is in development by executive producer Jun Takeuchi. So you can look forward to a lot more of Resident Evil 7 in the future.

No new time frame was given on when we could expect to see the DLC.

Resident Evil 7 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam.
