Steamforged games have opened a Kickstarter for a licensed Resident Evil 2 tabletop game.
It is designed for between 1 and 4 players, and is expected to release in September 2018. Kickstarter exclusive rewards are available before the game receives a general retail release afterwards
The project was successfully funded within hours and there are continuous stretch goals to unlock.
A video of the gameplay can be seen on the kickstarter page, as well as prototype models and cards which will feature in the final game.
Biohazard 7: Resident Evil will also be re-released as a Gold Edition, which includes the Banned Footage vol 1 and 2 DLCs as well as the newly announced third content piece; End of Zoe. This is the last piece to round out the 'season pass' and it is also able to be purchased seperately. A small teaser trailer has been released for the DLC too.
The re-release will be available on the 12th of December.
The previously-announced and delayed 'Not a Hero' DLC will also be released free to Biohazard/Resident Evil 7 players on this date.
Capcom Japan have published a video to Youtube apologising for a delay to the anticipated Resident Evil 7 'Not A Hero' chapter.
No release date has been set as yet.
The video explains (in Japanese) that the DLC will be released when it meets their high standards.

A Game Developer's Conference presentation on Resident evil 7 has been uploaded.
Titled Reliving the Horror: Taking 'Resident Evil 7' Forward by Looking Back, it is almost 60 minutes long and features Director Koshi Nakanishi and
Peter Fabiano (Senior Manager of Global R&D, Capcom Japan).
It's an interesting talk on how Capcom arrived on the concepts and styles for RE7. It shows prototype footage and concept arts. Abandoned ideas are revealed and discussed.
The GDC description:
Maintaining a game franchise can be both challenging and rewarding. Game Director Koshi Nakanishi and Senior Manager Peter Fabiano explain how Capcom took the 'Resident Evil' franchise somewhere new and different, while keeping true to its original concepts. They will review and discuss various facets of conceptualization, production and postmortem phases.
Invader Studios, the small Italian developer that's probably best known to most here as the developer that made the Resident Evil 2: Reborn gameplay demo in the Unreal Engine and later on was invited to come visit Capcom HQ, just put up their Kickstarter for their first original/solo project; Daymare: 1998. Whilst the trailer linked to in the text there is an old trailer, it absolutely shows signs of heading in the right direction. However, if you need more to be convinced that Daymare: 1998 is one to keep an eye on, it's worth noting that the team has received plenty of praise from a variety of members of the development teams of various Resident Evil titles.
If you're curious about the finer details about the goals of the project and general info on what's been said by whom, who's doing what and what to evt. expect from the final product, I suggest dropping by their Kickstarter page, read up, show your support if you're lusting for more, and spread the word. This is absolutely a case of a game being worked on by the fans, for the fans.
Resident Evil 7 Banned Footage volume 1 DLC is now available for purchase
It contains three pieces of content.
A battle against the Molded to survive until dawn.
You must escape from a room, similar to the Happy Birthday tape in Resident Evil 7. You can not make too much noise or Marguerite will come and investigate and attack if she finds that you've been trying to escape. You must reset the room as you solve the puzzles so she doesn't become suspicious
Ethan Must Die
A difficult game mode with an interesting progression system
Instead, everything in this game mode appears to be randomized. The higher the star rating on a crate the better item it could have. When you die, you’ll leave a gravestone behind and if you make it back to that gravestone on your next playthrough, then you get a randomly selected item from your past corpse given back to you. uploadvr.com
The DLC costs $9.99 USD and a season pass is available; which also includes Banned Footage volume 2, and an as yet unannounced third piece of content.
