At the last showcase, Capcom announced the different retail versions for Resident Evil: Village and released a surprise, PS5-exclusive Maiden demo for free. At the time, Resident Evil producer Pete Fabiano said a multi-platform demo would be released sometime this spring.
Re: Verse is a PvP multiplayer mode that will be available for anyone who purchases Resident Evil Village. Play as iconic characters like Jill Valentine or Chris Redfield and battle it out to see which team can get the most points. If you’re defeated, there’s a chance you can revive as a famous Resident Evil bioweapon for a second chance to take down whoever killed you.
As part of the anniversary celebration, Capcom also announced that Resident Evil: Village and Resident Evil 7 will be coming to Google Stadia. Village will be available on Stadia the same day as on other platforms, and Resident Evil 7 will be available on April 1 and will be free for Stadia Pro members.
