Resident Evil Re:Verse Announced at Capcom's Showcase
Resident Evil Re:Verse is a new multiplayer title from Capcom that pins iconic characters from the series against each other.
The game came as somewhat of a surprise announcement. I certainly wasn’t predicting a game like that to be announced. Re:Verse will be a brand new multiplayer experience that will be free to all Resident Evil Village players.
While the Resident Evil series has never taken itself too seriously, this new game definitely doesn’t either. In the game, players take control of some of the most popular characters from the series and pits them against each other. During the little amount of gameplay that was shown off, we saw Leon, Clair, and more characters from the series blasting each other inside of the Raccoon City Police Department. Players will even be able to take control of Nemesis and blast others with a rocket launcher.
Capcom confirmed that players will battle it out in four-to-six player deathmatches. Battles will take place in locations throughout the series, with the Raccoon City Police Department already being confirmed.
During the game, if a player dies, the game is not over for them yet. Players will respawn as a Bioweapon and are able to still battle against other players.
The reveal was definitely unexpected. These multiplayer Resident Evil titles have never seemed to stick with the fanbase. Just look at the like to dislike ratio for the trailer. However, it is a free title that comes bundled with Village, so it could possibly provide some hours of mindless fun. Yet, I think many viewers were looking for a different announcement yesterday.
During yesterday’s showcase, Capcom announced that Resident Evil: Village will be releasing on May 7, 2021. The game was already announced for PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. However, Capcom stated yesterday that the game will also be making its way to the PS4 and Xbox One as well. Ubisoft also made an appearance and revealed a crossover with The Division 2 and the Resident Evil Franchise.
