Horror fans are just a few hours away from returning to one of the gaming’s most iconic franchises with the launch of Resident Evil 7. The game makes some big changes with the introduction of a first-person perspective and VR support, but the developers promise that at its heart the game will feel familiar to long-time fans of the franchise (the return of herbs should help with that). As shoppers prep to jump into the game early tomorrow AM, Capcom has released a modest day one patch for Resident Evil 7.
Unlike many recent games with day one patches, the Resident Evil 7 patch doesn’t even break 1 GB. The game’s first patch released this morning for anyone with an early copy. The 806.2 MB update brings the game’s version up to 1.0.1 by patching some small bugs, making changes to notifications, and adding a few additional trophies.
Here’s a peek at the patch notes courtesy of ThisGenGaming…
- Now supports add-ons
- New trophies added
- Now supports notifications of new additional chapters
- Fixed certain bugs and issues
And these are the new trophies:
- Dead By Dawn? – Complete Nightmare. – Bronze
- Sleepless In Dulvey – Complete Night Terror – Silver
- Like Mama Used To Make – Complete Bedroom – Bronze
- Ratcatcher – Find all the dead rats in Bedroom in a single play – Silver
- Ethan Never Dies – Complete Ethan Must Die – Gold
The patch doesn’t bring anything very exciting to the table at the last minute, but that’s generally a good thing. This means that the game shipped out in working condition with a complete gameplay experience. Early reviews have been confirming that the game is a hit, so it’s no surprise that Capcom only needs to make a few minor tweaks to get the game ready for the masses tomorrow.
If the demo was any indication, Resident Evil 7 is going to be full of secrets and puzzles to unlock and explore, which will make for great trophy fodder. The game’s community tackled most of the puzzles in the demo at an incredible speed, including the dummy finger mystery, so we can expect the next few weeks to be full of puzzle explanations and the rare trophy unlocks.
