Capcom will release two pieces of downloadable content for Resident Evil 7 biohazard — the delayed episode titled Not A Hero and a new episode called End of Zoe — on Dec. 12, the publisher announced today. The company will also release a Gold Edition of Resident Evil 7 that day, which includes all of the game’s downloadable content to date.
Not A Hero stars Resident Evil series veteran Chris Redfield. The episode, which will be released for free, was originally planned for release this past spring, but was delayed. Here’s the new content’s official synopsis:
Taking place after the horrific events that befell Ethan Winters in Resident Evil 7 biohazard, Not a Hero brings a brand new experience playing as Chris to face new threats not met in the main game. As a member of New Umbrella, Chris and team quickly set up a strategy to counter this latest threat. Will Chris once again solve the mystery of this latest outbreak and make it out of the plantation’s dungeons alive?
The new episode, End of Zoe, will be included as part of Resident Evil 7’s season pass. It can be purchased separately for $14.99. Capcom says the “shocking installment” will reveal Zoe Baker’s fate and introduce new enemies and a swamp-filled area.
Zoe, a member of the Baker family who terrorizes protagonist Ethan in Resident Evil 7, helps the player over the course of the game, but her fate at the end of that game was left vague.

Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition will be released on Dec. 12 for PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. It will include the Banned Footage Vol. 1 and Banned Footage Vol. 2 DLC, as well as Not A Hero and End of Zoe.
