The free DLC for Resident Evil 7 is set to hit Spirng 2017 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4, and will bring the return of one of the series' major characters.
Spoilers are below, so read at your own risk.
Longtime series hero, Chris Redfield will be returning for Not A Hero. Capcom broke this news on their official Twitter and Facebook pages, spoiling anyone who hadn't gotten to the end of the game yet.

Redfield is revealed to be working for the Umbrella Corporation at the end of RE7, which should be absolutely baffling to anyone who knows anything about the series. Capcom has decided to give us an answer.
Clearly, their desire to let us all know Redfield is back means that the major surprise is not his return, but the identity of what it is he is chasing. So it looks like there is some interesting reason for him to be working with the Umbrella Corporation. Good, there better be.
The DLC does not have a concrete release date yet other than "Spring" so expect it before June.
