The heroes and villains of the Resident Evil franchise will sq. off in mortal fight in RE:Verse, a brand new multiplayer deathmatch sport, Capcom introduced Thursday throughout its Resident Evil Showcase presentation.
RE:Verse will likely be launched alongside Resident Evil Village in May, and will likely be free to house owners of that sport. Players will battle one another in third-person as Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kenney, Nemesis, Hunk, Chris Redfield, Ada Wong, and Jack Baker, in a fight area that seems to be primarily based on the Raccoon City Police Department from 2018’s Resident Evil 2 remake.
In addition to human-controlled opponents, it seems RE:Verse will even throw AI-controlled monsters just like the Hunter Gamma from Resident Evil 3 and Molded from Resident Evil 7 at gamers. A short gameplay teaser reveals that RE:Verse will use stylized, cel-shaded graphics to distinguish itself from the extra photorealistic Resident Evil video games of the previous few years.
Capcom producer Tsuyoshi Kanda mentioned that RE:Verse is among the methods the corporate is celebrating the Resident Evil franchise’s 25th anniversary. A closed beta take a look at for the multiplayer sport is deliberate to kick off on Jan. 28 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One gamers. Applications are currently open for that beta.
The Resident Evil franchise has been fodder for quite a lot of multiplayer video games over time, which have ranged from beloved (Resident Evil Outbreak) to extensively panned (Umbrella Corps). Capcom tried a brand new kind of Resident Evil multiplayer with final 12 months’s Resident Evil: Resistance, a cooperative/aggressive on-line sport that shipped with the Resident Evil 3 remake.
Resident Evil Village will likely be launched worldwide on May 7, 2021, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
