Now that Resident Evil 7 has fully launched for the PC, Xbox One, PS4 and the PlayStation VR headset, gamers have been able to experience the latest chapter in the ongoing horror-survival franchise. Well, before you get bored with the game, Capcom already has details on the first DLC pack.

Over on the Capcom Unity blog, community manager Kellen tossed out some news about the first major DLC pack for Resident Evil 7. The first pack is called Banned Footage Vol. 1.

With the Banned Footage Vol. 1 pack, gamers will be able to get their hands on it starting January 31 on the PS4. Following the PS4 roll out the DLC pack will then become available for PC and Xbox One for $9.99. The content will also be free for those who already purchased the Season Pass.

The Banned Footage Vol. 1 pack contains two additional VHS tapes, which can be used in the VCRs throughout the game, enabling gamers to experience various flashbacks of certain characters and what they experienced during their time at the Baker's house in Resident Evil 7.

The two VHS tapes features footage of two new scenarios, one centered on the "Bedroom," where players must figure out how to escape from the bedroom that Marguerite Baker has trapped them in, and avoid being spotted by Marguerite, who can control insects. They don't exactly say who you play in the banned footage, but it could likely be one of the other main characters who was briefly featured in the campaign mode or hinted at in the notes scattered around the map.

The second banned footage is called "Nightmare," and centers around fighting off waves of enemies in a survival mode from night until morning. This addresses some of the criticisms from gamers who felt as if there wasn't enough action in the main campaign mode. The "Nightmare" footage keeps the intensity high and has players fighting off various monsters. They don't say if any traditional zombies will make the cut, but for those of you craving more action out of the Resident Evil 7 experience, the "Nightmare" footage should satiate that thirst.

In addition to the two VHS tapes, there's also a brand new mode featured in the Banned Footage Vol. 1 pack. The new mode is called "Extra Mode -- Ethan Must Die". This is a completely separate experience that has nothing to do with the main story mode nor the other VHS tapes. In the Extra Mode it's an extra difficult mode for Resident Evil 7 fans to play through as Ethan. It might have something to do with some unresolved plot points in the main game or it might be something completely different. Either way, for whatever reason the Ethan Must Die mode won't have support for the PlayStation VR.

The Banned Footage Vol. 2 pack will arrive shortly thereafter for PS4 on February 14th for $14.99. It will be available on PC and Xbox One for Resident Evil 7 owners on February 21st. The second volume features another new mode called "Jack's 55th Birthday", which adds a new playable mini-game to the fanfare, along with two additional VHS tapes featuring "21", a deadly gauntlet setup by Lucas Baker, and "Daughters", a flashback sequence about the Baker family before the events that transpired in Resident Evil 7.
