The head of Microsoft's Xbox division, Phil Spencer, tweeted the news earlier today. It's a great deal of course if you're opting for the digital console version and as revealed months ago, those two versions are also cross-save compatible.

The first story episode entitled "Not a Hero" is out this spring. This one is reportedly not a part of the season pass and is free, and more details will follow.

Steam has updated the season pass listing with a vague, general one instead. So for those curious what it includes, our friends at Biohazard France had copied it earlier while it was up.

Fan Created RE 3.5 and Resident Evil 7 PC + Trailer

Image

A fan with the Youtube handle ShiguWorks re-created sections of the scrapped version of RE4 aka RE3.5. Of course it's not meant to be a 1:1 recreation of one version of it, so thematically, he's seemingly meshed the fog and the hallucination versions. Also, few of the areas' assets are based on RE5's Lost In Nightmares and the final version of RE4. It's very interesting work so have a look at his channel here. Check out the last video in particular with a link to a playable code he released today.

Lastly, with RE7 less than two weeks away, Capcom has updated the PC specs section on Steam. They're largely unchanged with the exception of a recommend GPU listing of a 4GB GTX 1060. If you're planning on picking up that version, pre-orders are still up with promotional prices at Green Man Gaming and GamesPlanet. The codes do work internationally and they are officially licensed retailers for those worried about their legitimacy.

Amazon UK has a lower price but we've seen claims of recently released boxed versions of Capcom games (namely Revelations 2) shipped with regionally locked codes.

They've also released a new trailer for the game through Twitter. The choice of music is an interesting one to say the least.

Thanks to everyone who brought the matters to our attention.

More Resident Evil 7 Details

Image

Our friends over at Biohazard France recently got to play the four-hour portion of the game that was recently unveiled to the press. Their impressions were promising and here is a summary of what they discovered:

*The game has a 'progression flow' that's been confirmed. If you walk to new locations and transition like in the older RE games, there is something of a chapter system to help divide progress. The section of the game they played was a bit from Chapter 3. Apparently this is the segment most journalist played recently, as Chapter 3 starts off with the Baker Dinner Table scene.

*The trailer vehicle is apparently the 'shop' in the game, you can collect Old Coins from around the game, and use them to purchase permanent upgrades (either to skills like accuracy or health increase, etc.), or even new weapons (like a magnum is available in the section of the game they played). Trailer is also said to follow you through the game to different locations as the shop.

*Ethan can find a backpack to give you more inventory space.

*To get the Shotgun, you need to solve an optional puzzle.

*There are insect enemies in the second location, smaller than typical RE fair but they do come at you, sometimes alone and sometimes in swarms. These include Bees, Spiders, & Centipedes.

*You can sharpen some weapons to give them increased piercing powers.

*There's different types of grenades you can craft from chemicals, including a poison cloud grenade and a incendiary grenade.

*You can develop photos that show the locations of hidden treasures around the place.

*Lockpicks can be used to open up certain doors for shortcuts around the house, drawers and lockers with supplies in them, and such things.

*Every time you complete an objective, the telephone will ring for a bit for more dialogue with the mysterious caller who will reveal a bit more and give a clue for progression.

*You have a map in the game that your character updates details about as you progress.

*There is a classic "Item hidden in bathtub" scene.

The next details include minor easter eggs concerning references from previous characters and hints about possible other locations. Not really spoilers but obviously don't look if you want to go in completely blind:

Spoiler:
*One of the written files is a newspaper article about missing persons in and around the Baker plantation area. This article is written by Alyssa Ashcroft. A separate file is written by Clive O'Brian. Other files talk about a crashed boat stranded after a storm, corruption surrounding a local church and a hospital investigating the strange mould that is surfacing in and around the area and its potential medical properties.
