Resident Evil: Re:Verse: Release date, platforms, trailers, and more

The Resident Evil franchise has had an odd relationship with multiplayer components across its many iterations. On one hand, we have the co-op modes seen in Resident Evil 5 and 6, which many argue are the only things that made those games worth playing. Then, there are the more experimental and competitive games like Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City and the universally despised Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps.

Despite never really finding a winning formula for mixing horror and multiplayer, Capcom still announced Resident Evil: Re:Verse as a multiplayer component released alongside, but also as a stand-alone product, to Resident Evil: Village.

In the end, Resident Evil: Re:Verse wouldn’t make it on time to launch with Village as intended and was essentially not spoken of for years after that game was released. Now that the game is actually on the horizon, and with plenty of other exciting projects in the Resident Evil universe also upcoming, it would be understandable for most people to not even remember what this game was meant to be.

So, mix your herbs and organize your attache case because we’re diving deep into everything we know about Resident Evil: Re:Verse.

After many delays and a lot of silence, we finally know when we can play Resident Evil: Re:Verse. This mode will be available on October 28, 2022.

Because Resident Evil: Re:Verse is still tied to Village, you will need to own a copy of that game in order to play this multiplayer mode. So, naturally, that means that Resident Evil: Re:Verse will be only on platforms where you can play Village, which includes the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Capcom does note that if you want to play it on either the PS5 or Xbox Series X, you will simply be playing the previous generation version of the game, which is somewhat concerning.


Resident Evil Re:Verse - Teaser Trailer

For whatever reason, the only official trailer we’ve seen for Resident Evil: Re:Verse was the incredibly short teaser trailer from back in 2021. In it, we see Leon running through the RCPD until he encounters Clair. The two stare at each other for a second before a gunshot ends the scene.

From there, we get a montage of the game in action, seeing tons of familiar characters like Jill, Chris, Ada, H.U.N.K, and even the Nemesis and Jack Baker.

Otherwise, this is a pure multiplayer, non-cannon experience where the story either isn’t existent or won’t be important whatsoever.

Resident Evil: Re:Verse will be a five-player, third-person deathmatch game. You will pick one of the cast members listed above, minus Nemesis and Jack, and go through a map hunting down other players and bioweapons while collecting better weapons, items, and virus capsules. When you or any other player dies, you will then turn into one of the bioweapons, depending on how many vials you had before death. The more you have, the more powerful bioweapon you can be.

Each kill you get, either while human or as a bioweapon, adds to your score. The player with the most points at the end of each five-minute round is the winner.

So far, the only map shown has been the RCPD, but we would hope other iconic areas would be included as well, such as the Spencer Mansion, Baker Estate, and maybe even the village from Resident Evil 4.

Obviously, Resident Evil: Re:Verse is a multiplayer-only experience. As mentioned, games have five player limit, though we don’t know if you can play with fewer than five or if there will be any other modes besides the one, such as team or survival style modes.

While kind of strange, you can’t actually get Resident Evil: Re:Verse without owning Village, at least at this point. So technically, buying that game is not only pre-ordering this one but is required. Thankfully, Village is a great game on its own, with its own DLC coming too, making it well worth it.

Alan Wake 2: release date, trailers, gameplay, preorder, and more
Alan Wake.

The original Alan Wake is a game that went through quite a troubled development before it was finally released. After many iterations and changes in scope and direction, the final product was initially a cult hit, but didn't hit the mass market it needed -- at least not initially. After two DLC episodes, a sequel was in the works to build upon the first game and revive some of the elements that had to be cut from the first in order for it to ship, but this was ultimately not meant to be. The sequel was canceled and a smaller downloadable game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, was released instead.

Since then, we hadn't heard from our intrepid writer until he showed up in a very unlikely place. Featured in the AWE expansion for a completely different game, Control, Alan was back in the picture. With a remaster of the initial game catching everyone up on his first appearance, now was the perfect time to announce that the long-awaited sequel was back in development. We haven't found all the manuscript pages yet, but here is everything we know about Alan Wake 2.

Homeworld 3: release date window, trailer, preroder, and more
A massive space fleet in formation.

The long, long wait for a new Homeworld title is finally coming to a close. This classic RTS series once stood toe-to-toe with the titans of the genre such as StarCraft and Command and Conquer, but hasn't been seen since the sequel in 2003, aside from a more recent prequel.

At the same time, the entire RTS genre has fallen from the grace it once enjoyed, with almost none of the major names existing in that space anymore. However, we did get hints at a proper Homeworld sequel coming in the future after Gearbox purchased the rights and released the Homeworld Remastered Collection, a prequel game called Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak, and even a tabletop version of the game. Here's everything we know so far about this RTS title.

Detective Pikachu Returns: release date, trailers, gameplay, and more

One of the more forgotten entries in the monster-catching franchise is also the most unique. Detective Pikachu was originally a 3DS game (and a feature film) that cast Pikachu as a smooth-talking (that's right, he talks!) detective who teams up with a kid named Tim Goodman to solve various mysteries. Rather than play like an RPG, this entry was more of an adventure game, focusing on story and, naturally, solving mysteries. After the success of the game and film, it was only a matter of time before a sequel game was announced. The wait turned out to be quite a bit longer than many expected, but now that Detective Pikachu Returns has been officially announced, we've put on our caps and collected all the clues about this upcoming adventure.
Release date

Detective Pikachu Returns is right around the corner. The game will launch on October 6, 2023.
