Resident Evil 7 Preorder Bonus Images Leaked

We herb it through the grapevine.

39 Comments

Resident Evil 7 was announced alongside its preorder bonus DLC that unlocks the hardest difficulty early and grants players with an item pack. Now, images of the pack may have been leaked through Swedish retailer Discshop.

Four different item packs are shown on Discshop's Resident Evil 7 page: the Recovery Set, Handgun Set, Burner Set, and Chem Fluid Set. Nothing is confirmed about the sets, but some do come with classic Resident Evil items, such as herbs in the Recovery Set and ammo in the Handgun Set. The Chem Fluid Set appears to have some kind of healing item included and the Burner Set could be used in conjunction with the previously leaked flamethrower weapon--though this is all conjecture.

Along with the items, each set is pictured with a coin of some sort. It's not clear if they'll be used as currency in Resident Evil 7 or if they have a more mysterious purpose like the dummy finger in the PS4-exclusive demo. The Recovery Set image matches one that was sent by Capcom to those subscribed to a Resident Evil newsletter--it also included the gold coin. We've contacted Capcom for confirmation and more information on this leak. We'll update this article as we hear back.

Resident Evil 7 is set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 24, 2017. If you preorder its $80 Deluxe edition, you receive access to two more pieces of additional content. The first includes four short side stories, while the second adds another episode to the main game.

GameSpot recently got the opportunity to play the upcoming survival-horror game and found that it continues to break tradition.

Guys, please do not buy this game and encourage this bullshit.

How can they even think not including main story in $60 price tag is a good idea? We should stop encouraging these bullshit ideas.

"If you preorder its $80 Deluxe edition, you receive access to two more pieces of additional content. The first includes four short side stories, while the second adds another episode to the main game."

...and with that, what little faith I had for RE7 has gone out the window. I'm sick of prices going up for games. The deluxe edition has content that SHOULD be in the standard edition.

Nope. Not doing it. I doubt I will even get it with some absurd discount on the eventual "GotY edition". I'm speaking with my wallet on this one.

Looks like Capcom has gotten bored of dragging the SF franchise through the dirt, and now It's RE's turn :(

Then again; withheld content and Microtransactions have been Capcom's "strategy" lately.

Capcom is 7 months early with their April fools joke. Please tell me they are kidding lol? Preordering games is already a red flag, but forcing us to buy the $80 deluxe version to get the full experience is like someone spitting in your face. It's not cool Capcom. My excitement for this game on a scale of 10 went from an 8 down to a 3.

Not feeling the main story bonus for $20 more. I think I might cancel my pre-order.

The Deluxe addition adds another episode to the main game? So the game is incomplete at its base? Good to know. Notice that I didn't mention side stories, because that's what extras are supposed to be in a game whose narrative is central to the experience.

the only devs/publishers that shouldn't be ashamed to do their job are indie-devs/publishers. day 1 dlcs, season passes, it's all so bad. so bad :( maybe i'll stop buying "big" games altogether. Uncharted 4 was very disappointing, Dark Souls 3 has amazing gameplay, but the world progression also feels very tedious after a relatively short while. And with the last update Dark Souls 3, like any other piece of $hit game, now has a menu point called "purchase Add-ons". It's not even small and at the bottom. It's right in the freaking middle and other than all the other menu points it's in capital letters so it sticks out so i can see it everytime. And yes, i see it freaking every time. What happened? Just what the hell happened? Dark Souls of all games. Like one of the last major games to be focused on good gameplay goes ahead and does this.

Now its finally confirmed for the people who is blind YES there will be a little bit of action in the game like in the first Resident Evil and if you still say this aint Resident Evil then you are just trolling, just because its first person doesn't mean its not Resident Evil.

So you're telling me RE4 was not RE just because it went third person unlike the previous games?

@Musti97: Well I guess I'm trolling then because this isn't no RE aside from the name. Maybe it's been along time since you have played the first RE game but it had a lot of action in it not just a "little' bit. There was combat almost the whole game if you decided to engage in it sure you could skip a lot of encounters if you really wanted to but where is the fun in that. I'll keep saying it until I see some actual footage of the game that this is NOT a Resident Evil game aside from the title. It's just Capcom trying to capitalize on the franchise name to start something new. You can disagree all you want as this is just my opinion but there has been no proof to show me otherwise.

@arumat33:Well actually I played the remastered version of RE1 like yesterday (no jokes) and naaah there are not that much combat yes you shoot a zombie or a spider a couple of times and if you are implying that this game does not have action in it than you just took for the comments with out reading the article did you miss the SURVIVAL PACK: HANDGUN SET and did you read the previous articles which said that there will be shotguns, flamethrowers and more. Even the developer said in an interview there will be combat just like in the first one were you either choose to fight or run and hide. All the gameplay we have seen lately is either from the demo which has nothing to do with the game or the tape recorders you find through out the game which puts you in the shoes of another person and in the newest trailer it so happens that the tape recorder was about a defenceless woman. And I will say it again no RE1 did not have ALOT of action it had a little bit of it which this game WILL have.

Research my friend.

Looks like the Ubisoft'd the game. Won't preorder (measly, pitiful attempts at splitting content among the playerbase) and chances are now I'll wait weeks or months until the price drops because if all the developer sees me as is a walking wallet, then I can treat the developer likewise and ensure they don't get anywhere near what they expect (if anything at all) from me.

And people continue to argue and wonder about these idiotic marketing schemes for the past 15 years.

"It doesn't hurt you. It doesn't change anything." Blah blah blah.

Simpletons playing checkers, while companies continue to play chess. Learn to foresee where things can go ffs.

This is the kind of pre-order bonus I like to see, it gives a slight advantage to early adopters while people that didn't pre-order don't feel like they're missing anything. I'm not counting the Deluxe Edition it sucks when they exclude story content.

Please, stop calling this shit Resident Evil... its still not too late to change the name, just stop ruining this serie already. Dont you see how well-recieved REmake and RE:0 HD have been? THIS is how Resident Evil must remain, just give us REmake 2 already and a proper RE7 game, not this dull, generic hiding simulator alias Amnesia/outlast clone.

@Xirtahm: Because this is the first time this happened... Splinter Cell, Driver, Crash and a bunch. Right from the start there were people worrying how it looks and some others said that a lot will happen in the next months and weeks. And then the end results efficiently killed the series

But at any rate these days I buy 1-2 games per year and starting even them is uncertain so I don't really have a vote. Funny fact is that I quite liked RE6 and it's one of the better last-gen games IMO. I also loved the originals though. But with this it's hard to see the Resident Evil DNA as even the characters and environments seem very distant from the RE1-6 series

There might be big reveals that tie this somehow with the bigger picture, but this approach is very, very weird path to take. Usually devs like to brag how they are expanding and continuing etc. Here Capcom almost wants to distance themselves, the one weird hope-building detail is that they didn't name the game "Resident Evil".

@gameroutlawzz: You don't know what RE7 is, so your post is just silly. Both demos aren't really connected to the game: one is nothing and the other is one of the optional videotape segments. Until we see the game proper, you're just trolling.

@iandizion713: interesting. i found the 1st one pretty underwhelming. if it was pure Jill on the boat i would have loved it, but all those dumbed down shooter sections with those numerous other characters that i really didn't care about that didn't have any puzzles or any weapon upgrades kinda killed it for me. if it were only 2 or 3 chapters sure, but every other chapter was like this. bäh! i enjoyed revelations 2 far more, more straight story-wise and only 2 pairs of playable characters that are all important for the story.
