The first bit of DLC for Resident Evil 7 has gone live. Capcom released the Banned Footage Vol 1., content for PS4 gamers first. For those of you looking for a walkthrough guide for the content there are videos available.
The content is covered in depth by YouTuber RabidRetroSpecGames. The first video features the game’s new Nightmare mode, where Ethan must survive in the horrific basement until dawn. It starts at 12:00am and he must make it to 5:00am. The survival mode is similar to the horde mode in games like Gears of War 4 or the Mercenaries mode in Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. You can check it out below.
You’ll want to activate the compactors in order to earn coins to buy ammo and weapons from the workbench. You’ll have to survive for five minutes to complete an hour of in-game time.
Compactors will eventually shut off so be sure to keep them activated. You’ll also need to purchase certain equipment from the workbench to unlock new areas in the survival map, such as the corrosive material, which will allow you to access additional compactors, which in turn will make you more money.
If you unlock four compactors, you’ll be able to race through and turn them all on and make a thousand coins pretty quickly. Be sure to turn on the compactor in the boss room where you fight Jack, otherwise you could miss out on some extra coins.
2:00am will introduce the bloats, and they’ll require a ton of ammo to defeat, so make sure you stock up on plenty of ammo.
You’ll want a shotgun to create separation between you and the monsters. If you have P19 Machine Gun use it in the open areas where you have space to pick your shots. The grenade launcher is essential for killing Jack and the bloats.
The flamethower is pretty flow when it comes to damaging enemies but it does lots of damage.
Also, there are traps around the area. do not use the traps until 4:00am when Jack comes back with his chainsaw scissors.
Use the traps to do extra damage because he will tank the hits like a boss… because he is a boss.
The next piece of content is called the “Bedroom”, featuring Clancy Javis, the cameraman from the camera crew that was featured early on in Resident Evil 7. This is also part of the Banned Vol. 1 content.
It’s only 14 minutes long but you can see it below.
If you choose “Wow, this looks delicious” Marguerite will leave you alone in the room and then you can unfasten yourself from the chains.
Grab the lantern off the wall and the lighter from the table. There’s a knife behind the dresser. Unhinge the second hand from the clock and take the spoon. Unlock the grandfather clock and take the photo from inside. Put the lantern back onto the wall and climb back into bed before the timer runs out.
When Marguerite leaves take the lantern off the wall again and take the paintings – the rectangular, oval and small square paintings. Place them on the wall in the proper order of: rectangle, oval, square.
There’s a sewing needle inside the box. Take it.
Replace the paintings on the wall in the order you found them in.
Head over to the door and put in the lock combination as pictured above.
Use the sewing needle in the clock to put it at 5:00. The alarm will end up going off. Make sure you put everything back exactly the way it was before, including the paintings being on the wall (with the rectangular painting going on the barrel in the corner), and the lantern on the wall.
Take the silverware from the platter and use the fork to unhinge the cabinet in the other room. Use the knife to open up the box and place the lantern inside. Put the fork on the pedestal and align the fork with the silhouette.
Place the stove on the barrel and light it on fire to break the wine glass and get the spiders off the wall.
Take the wine corks and use them to unhinge the mantles that hold the lantern and then place the mantel on the second pedestal. Align the mantle as pictured in the image below.
After stabbing Marguerite, Clancy will attempt to make a daring escape through the secret passage, marking the end to the banned footage called “Bedroom”.
