  • Many users reported that they cannot find DLC on their RE7 Gold Edition.
  • This is an unusual situation because RE7 Gold Edition comes with the full game and the DLC.
  • Waiting for the game to install completely is a great way to start but we have more solutions below.

Users of the RE7 Gold Edition have expressed frustration in their inability to access DLC and reported it missing. Sometimes it takes them a lot of time to find them. The RE7 Gold Edition contains the full game and DLC.  

Worry not, there are ways you can find the DLC for your RE7 without going through so much hassle. And in most cases, you wouldn’t have to uninstall the game and get it all over again.

Resident Evil 7 is available on PS4, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows. It can be downloaded and is one of the contents you can access on all devices.

So, let’s find out how you can find the RE7 Gold Edition DLC when it’s supposedly missing.

Preliminary steps if you don’t find the RE7 Gold Edition DLC

As we mentioned above, Resident Evil 7 should come with the DLCs. Maybe they are really there, and you can’t simply find them.

So, before starting to tweak the game itself, there are a few steps to consider:

How we test, review and rate?

We have worked for the past 6 months on building a new review system on how we produce content. Using it, we have subsequently redone most of our articles to provide actual hands-on expertise on the guides we made.

For more details you can read how we test, review, and rate at WindowsReport.

Wait for the game to install completely

Perhaps you have installed it and cannot find the DLC on the menu. Wait for some minutes after the download and wait for it to finish installing before you search for the DLC on your device to open it.  

Sometimes, even if the game installation shows 100% progress, some files are still written on the drive.

Restart and toggle the game

If you have downloaded and installed the downloadable content and still cannot access it, toggle. That means to turn the device on and off or uninstall and reinstall it.

Simply restarting the PC and the game can fix the things just like magic. If you already did that, uninstall and reinstall the game. 

That being said, if you still have problems accessing or getting the DLC for your RE7 Gold Edition, here are things you can do.

How do I find the RE7 Gold Edition DLC when it is missing?

1. Renew the license

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Select Account Management.
  3. Choose Restore Licenses.
  4. Then, click the Restore button.
  5. Wait for the process to complete. 
  6. Try to get the DLC again

If you are trying to get downloadable content and cannot find them, it could be because you have not renewed your license.

2. Re-activate your account

  1. Go to Account Management from the Settings menu.
  2. Now, select Activate as Your Primary PS4.
  3. Choose Activate.
  4. If the device is already set as primary, select Deactivate.
  5. Then, click on Activate.

This will mean that you have to activate your device. Although it may seem little and insignificant, it goes a long way.

Configuring your device by activating and then deactivating it may enable you to access digital and downloadable content.

3. Check the store

  1. Go to the PlayStation Network store.
  2. Search for Resident Evil 7.
  3. Find the DLC within the results, and then download and install it.

You can find downloadable content on the PlayStation Network. This is one place you should go to if your DLC is missing.

We can’t stress enough that since the RE7 Gold Edition comes with DLC, it’s probably not missing at all.

If you follow all these steps, you can find all the downloadable content and to enjoy your games. For any problem with the game, find out how to fix common issues with Resident Evil 7.
