Capcom said they will share the new launch details about Re: Verse in the future.
Six-player multiplayer with Resident Evil’s iconic characters
Re: Verse is the online deathmatch component that will be available for free for RE Village owners. It got an open beta in April 2021. Up to 6 players can choose from RE’s popular characters like Chris and Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong, and Hunk to jump into action across various locations.
Dying in Re: Verse doesn’t eliminate you from the match. Instead, you respawn as a power bioweapon, and to increase your power, you must collect virus samples throughout the match.
Biggest Steam and Twitch launch for RE Village
RE Village launched on May 7, 2021, on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia. The game apparently had the biggest Steam and Twitch launch in the history of RE games based on the players and viewers count.
Within 4 days of its launch, RE Village sold over 3 million units worldwide.
