The second volume is titled “Threat of Bioterrorism” and follows various members of the BSAA as they combat the remnants of Umbrella Corporation across the globe. Similarly, the second box set includes Resident Evil 4, 5, and 6.
Lastly, the third volume is titled “Episode of Ethan Winters” and includes both Resident Evil 7 Biohazard Gold Edition and Resident Evil Village. Additionally, this box set includes a product code for the upcoming multiplayer title RE: Verse releasing in 2022, as well as the previously mentioned 13 postcards.
