The data mine also details the title’s first four DLC packs. DLC 1 is thought to involve a puzzle-based chapter, in which players must answer riddles and solve puzzles. DLC 2 appears to be a card game, DLC 3 is a wave-based survival mode, and DLC 4 is a story chapter with three possible endings.

Finally, and most significantly, the leak also effectively details the game’s full narrative. While we are not going to publish the full outline here, data files suggest multiple endings and branching events will be included in Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, while an epilogue scene also takes place after the credits. If you want to read the full details, you can do so thanks to NeoGAF user Jawmuncher.

    Typical Crapcom strategy, get DLC prepared while the game is alrdy finished and sell it at an inflated price like all DLC get’s sold nowadays.
