Capcom has just announced that Resident Evil 7 will be getting a definitive edition in the form of Resident Evil 7: Gold Edition.
Resident Evil 7: Gold Editon will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The upcoming re-release was unveiled in the latest issue of the popular Japanese gaming magazine, Famitsu.
The Japanese release of Resident Evil 7: Gold Editon will include both the standard edition of the game in addition to an Ages 18+ Adults only copy of the title. The adult version of the game will most likely be the standard edition of the North American release—in Japan, violence and gore is generally given a stricter age restriction, hence why the new edition of the game will be getting two versions.
The Gold edition of Resident Evil 7 will also include the full title in addition to both volumes of the Banned Footage downloadable content. Interestingly enough, the new release will also include a brand new chapter known as End of Zoe.
The never before-released End of Zoe chapter will star Zoe Baker and takes place at the end of her story during the events of Resident Evil 7. Those who already own the vanilla Resident Evil 7 can purchase End of Zoe digitally for ¥1,500 ($17 CAD).
Finally, alongside End of Zoe, fans of Resident Evil 7 can look forward to the Not a Hero downloadable content, which stars Chris Redfield. The Not a Hero DLC will be free of charge. Both pieces of new downloadable content will become available December 14 in Japan, no release date for other regions has been announced at this time.
Resident Evil 7 first released earlier this year, and was was praised for its return to survival horror. Over here at CGM, we gave the game a well deserved 9 out of 10, remarking on the titles’ excellent use of VR integration on PlayStation 4.
