If you're one of the few people playing Umbrella Corps, then you'll be happy to hear that the Resident Evil shooter is set to receive a free map based on Spencer Mansion, the setting for the original game.

Capcom announced the free DLC map on its blog. Spencer Mansion features a similar layout to the original game--according to Capcom, you can "[u]se your memory of the Mansion's unique layout to your advantage." It's not clear how much of the mansion will feature in the multiplayer map, but you can revisit it for yourself this Thursday, July 7.

Umbrella Corps received a score of 3 in GameSpot's review. Critic Peter Brown said, "Its systems are either unreliable or illogical, and as a result, it feels almost impossible to get a foothold. The first time an enemy kills you when they should have been dead, you may shrug it off. When it happens the dozenth time, you'll probably wonder why you're playing Umbrella Corps at all. There's ultimately no good excuse."

Umbrella Corps is available now on PS4 and PC.

Although Umbrella Corps is primarily a multiplayer shooter, Resident Evil 7 is supposed to bring the series back to its roots and put a greater focus on horror. GameSpot got the opportunity to talk to producer Masachika Kawata, who says that "trying to survive the horror, the survival horror, is a key element." Kawata also talked about how he was unhappy with the cancellation of Silent Hills/PT.

Much of Resident Evil 7's story remains a mystery, though we do know that we'll play as a different protagonist than who we controlled in the demo on PS4. Additionally, we know that the demo is not a part of the full game.

Speaking of the demo, many Resident Evil fans have been hunting for the in-game dummy finger's purpose. Capcom has confirmed there is one, but "the path for now is closed."

Resident Evil 7 releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017.
