Resident Evil Village may be winning over hearts with its large, vampiric ladies, but it’s not the only game arriving on May 7. Partnered with the new title, Resident Evil Re:Verse is a special multiplayer game to celebrate the series’ 25th anniversary. It was only given a brief reveal during the Resident Evil Showcase stream, but thankfully more information is out there. If you’re interested in Resident Evil Village’s multiplayer mode, here’s everything we know about Resident Evil Re:Verse so far.
Everything we know about Resident Evil Re:Verse
Resident Evil Re:Verse is a free multiplayer mode included with all copies of Resident Evil Village. Described as a “Fight to the death that all resident Evil fans can enjoy,” Re:Verse features four-to-six player deathmatch battles, with players racing to outscore their opponents during five minute long battles.
Playing as characters from throughout Resident Evil history, players fight in scaled up environments from the series (so far only the Resident Evil 2 RPD station has been shown). Weapons and items can be found around the arena, encouraging exploration during the battle. Check out the teaser trailer below for a look at the unusual cell-shading filter the game makes use of.
Scoring a kill isn’t the end of the battle, however. When killed in Re:Verse, your character will transform into a bioweapon boss from the series. We’ve been given a look at Resident Evil 3’s Nemesis and Resident Evil 7’s Jack Baker so far, but plenty more are expected. By collecting Virus Capsules from around the map, you’ll upgrade the bioweapon you become when slain. Use the burst of power to score some payback and points!
