Resident Evil Re:Verse is finally out next week with a new look

Resident Evil Re:Verse is finally out next week and it even comes with a new look.  Furthermore, it now features new maps and characters.

Resident Evil Re:Verse was supposed to launch at around the same time as Resident Evil Village. However, due to a negative reaction to its beta, it was delayed. In fact, it ended up being delayed more than once.

Are you ready for Re:Verse?

In Capcom’s defence, the purpose of a beta is to test the game, receive player feedback and make any adjustments required.

However, sometimes betas can feel more like glorified demos. Well, Resident Evil Re:Verse is nearly here and by the looks of things, quite a lot has changed.

For starters, Re:Verse has now ditched its cel shade visuals. Instead, it looks closer in line with recent Resident Evil releases.

In the beta, the only map available was the RPD from the Resident Evil 2 remake. That being said, there was always an intention to release more maps.

Moreover, the only mode in the beta was 6v6 PvP deathmatch. Players can take control of Survivors from the series and at some point, you will soup up and can morph into Creatures aka Bio-Weapons.

What’s new in Re:Verse?

Characters in the beta included Leon S. Kennedy, Chris and Claire Redfield, Jill Valentine, Ada Wong and Hunk. Bio-Weapons included Nemesis, Super Tyrant (T-103), Jack Baker, Fat Molded and Hunter Y.

However, in the Re:Verse launch trailer we see additional maps such as the Baker Compound, as well as the Village from RE Village. We also see members of Chris Redfield’s BSAA Hound Wolf as Survivors, as well as a Lycan Bio-Weapon. The trailer also features various cosmetic unlocks, emotes and more.
