Capcom shows off a bit more of Resident Evil 7's free Chris Redfield DLC

Out in December.

Resident Evil 7's long-delayed - and free - Not a Hero DLC will finally reach PS4, Xbox One, and PC on December 12th, along with the concluding season pass story episode End of Zoe. Both have been given a brand-new airing in Capcom's latest DLC video.

Not a Hero, which gained notoriety earlier this year for its inclusion of a curiously misshapen Chris Redfield, was originally expected to release in spring 2017.

In April, however, Resident Evil 7's director, producer, and executive producer, released a video announcing its delay, explaining that, "in the light of the incredible reception to the release of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that [Not a Hero] 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."

Not a Hero, says Capcom, takes place "after the horrific events that befell Ethan Winters in Resident Evil 7 Biohazard; Chris is on the hunt for Lucas Baker to bring an end to the Baker tragedy once and for all". It seems that other BSAA operatives have been unsuccessful in their attempts to thwart Lucas: "Can Chris save the team while also tracking down Lucas through perilous poison gas filled dungeons?"

December 12th also sees the launch of Capcom's final bit of season pass story content, End of Zoe. This slightly enigmatic release features mysterious outdoorsman Joe who, says Capcom, "lives along the bank of the marshes and has a chance encounter with Zoe that sets both their fates in motion." Both End of Zoe and Not a Hero will support PlayStation VR.

If you own the Resident Evil 7 but not the season pass, End of Zoe will be available to purchase on its own for Ł11.99.

It'll also be included in the new Resident Evil 7 Gold Edition which, predictably enough, bundles up the base game and all available DLC - including Banned Footage Vol. 1, and Banned Footage Vol. 2 - for release on Xbox One, PS4, and PC on December 12th.
