Resident Evil was a pioneer of “survival horror”, but this year Capcom will make it a pioneer of “survival revenge”. That’s the dynamic of Resident Evil Re:Verse, a new title focused on competitive multiplayer. Originally supposed to launch in mid-2021, Re:Verse was delayed into 2022. Now it’s set to launch on October 28, alongside Resident Evil Village Gold Edition. Existing owners of Resident Evil Village will gain early access from October 23, 2022.
Check out the launch trailer for Resident Evil Re:Verse below.
Resident Evil Re:Verse is a competitive online “survival revenge” mode for two to six players. Players can fight each other and against monsters on maps drawn from across Capcom’s Resident Evil Remake line.They’ll choose to play as characters like Chris, Jill, Hunk, and Ada, and use a variety of weapons and items to gain the upper hand. The game also has a “Bioweapon’s Revenge” mechanic, where players can gather up virus capsules. If they’re defeated by another player, they resurrect as a powerful bioweapon based on one of the series’ many boss characters, such as Jack Baker or Nemesis. The more virus capsules they have, the stronger the creature they become. “Revenge-killing” the player who downed them also awards extra points.
The game supports cross-platform play, and will be freely accessible to all owners of Resident Evil Village and the Gold Edition.
Resident Evil Re:Verse early access opens to owners of Resident Evil Village on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 23, 2022 at 7:00 PM PDT and ends on October 25, 2022 at 11:00 PM PDT.
