"The Escape Ends Here
Clancy tried his best, but couldn't outrun Jack. Dragged to the basement staircase and thrown inside, Clancy is still gagging on the mold-choked air as Jack slams the door on his escape, saying "You just sit tight right, now... I've got some friends I want you to meet."
"
— Nightmare opening scene

Nightmare is a minigame for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. It was released as part of the "Banned Footage Vol. 1" DLC on 31 January 2017 on the PlayStation 4, with a PC and Xbox One release on 21 February.

PlotEdit

Due to the mode being mainly a Survival mode, there is little plot, although the overall set up shows Jack locking Clancy in the basement of the Baker house for him to die to the Moulded down there. Desperate to survive, Clancy now must do whatever he can to make it to the morning.

GameplayEdit

The "Nightmare" scenario has two game types, "Nightmare" which is the standard version of the game and "Night Terror" which is harder. There is also a "Rewards" menu which tracks the player's accumulated points from either gamemode and shows which rewards have been unlocked.

For the game portion, players take control over Clancy Jarvis and starts with no items and has 20 inventory slots. The gameplay area is restricted to the Processing Area which has been altered slightly for this mode and players starts in the Incinerator Room.

It is a round-based survival horde game where waves of Molded attack the player. The main objective is to "Survive Until Dawn" battling against the said enemies and ultimately Jack Baker. The player has Scrap which they earn and use to craft items and skills in order to survive.

Next to where the player begins is the workbench where they can spend their Scrap on items and skills to augment their capabilities passively. The price of all items and skills will increase with each succeeding purchases. Scraps can also be used to activate traps attached to walls or on the ground.

The player will start with 1000 Scrap and more can be obtained from Compactors and more is rewarded at the end of each round. Compactors are stationary points that can be activated to generate a steady flow of Scrap. The players must visit the Compactor to pick up the Scrap.

There are five rounds, each indicated by the hours up to 5 am. Enemies will spawn throughout the rounds, with Jack appearing in rounds 2 and 5 in his typical stalking form from the main game and with his chainsaw respectively. For each round that the player survives, they will be rewarded with a Scrap in relation to the number of enemies they killed and their remaining number of Scrap.

Each round's end is signaled with an alarm and the Compactors' functionality ceasing within 40 seconds. The Compactors will remain inactive until the next round starts. Players are required to eliminate any remaining enemies in order to progress to the next hour/round. Any Scrap that are yet to be collected by the players when the Compactors' production ceases are still available.

Some areas can be unlocked through the use of Corrosive, providing more accessible areas ergo more compactors as well as more available traps.

Completing the mode tallies the player's score and adds to the player's overall score which is used to determine which Rewards the players unlocks. Rewards unlock more options for players to craft in the game mode for subsequent play-through; more weapons, more starting scraps, skills, etc.
