Fans of Resident Evil will soon be able to face off in a new multiplayer deathmatch game called Resident Evil ReVerse. The game was announced during today’s Resident Evil Showcase.
According to Polygon:
Resident Evil Re:Verse will be released alongside Resident Evil Village in May, and will be free to owners of that game. Players will battle each other in third-person as Jill Valentine, Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kenney, Nemesis, Hunk, Chris Redfield, Ada Wong, and Jack Baker, in a combat arena that appears to be based on the Raccoon City Police Department from 2018’s Resident Evil 2 remake.
In addition to human-controlled opponents, it appears Re:Verse will also throw AI-controlled monsters like the Hunter Gamma from Resident Evil 3 and Molded from Resident Evil 7 at players. A brief gameplay teaser shows that Re:Verse will use stylized, cel-shaded graphics to differentiate itself from the more photorealistic Resident Evil games of the past few years.
