Originally scheduled to launch alongside Resident Evil Village, Re:Verse is a six-person deathmatch experience featuring popular characters from the series and a comic book aesthetic. It’s not the first time Re:Verse has been delayed, with the game being pushed from its initial May launch to July after a rather disastrous beta period. Download codes for Re:Verse shipped with physical copies of Village, with Capcom giving the following advice:
“For players who purchased a physical version of Resident Evil Village, we recommend that you keep track of the included Resident Evil Re:Verse download code or add it to your account now so that you are ready to play when the game launches next year.”
Resident Evil Re:Verse will launch in 2022 on Ps5, PS4, Xbox Series X&S, Xbox One and PC.
