While you can just buy a normal videogame of the shelves developers and publishers try to squeeze that extra bit of cash out of consumers by offering limited edition versions of titles. These can range from additional artwork or a fancy steel case, to much more elaborate offerings involving models, clothing and much more. This hasn’t really happened yet in the world of virtual reality (VR), as content has been purely digital, but with the release of PlayStation VR for PlayStation 4 that time has now come. UK-retailer GAME now has an exclusive Steelbook Edition available for Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 biohazard.
This special edition – as the name suggests – comes in a fancy metal case (for extra protection of that special disk. Whilst that might not tempt gamers to spend the £54.99 GBP asking price, the included DLC might.
This is the Survival Pack: Action Set, featuring .44 MAG ammo x4; Special Grenade x1; Lock Pick x 1; Solid Fuel x1; Gunpowder x1; Herb x1 and the Madhouse Mode Unlocked. As far as VRFocus is aware Capcom hasn’t yet revealed any details about this mode.
The developer previously revealed four Survival Pack Sets back in September, the Recovery Set, Handgun Set, Burner Set and Chem Fluid Set. Each has their own specific qualities depending on how gamers want to play the title, and they all include one coin. GAME’s exclusive ‘Action Set’ doesn’t seem to feature any of the previously revealed coins.
Resident Evil 7 biohazard is set for release on 24th January 2017, both on traditional 2D monitors for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, and as an exclusive VR experience for PlayStation VR for 12 months. VRFocus will continue to keep you updated with all the latest details on Resident Evil 7 biohazard.
