Resident Evil Village is getting DLC and Re:Verse is finally coming

Resident Evil Village producer Tsuyoshi Kanda announced today that Resident Evil Re:Verse, the survival-horror title’s upcoming multiplayer mode, will release sometime in July on all supported platforms. The mode will be freely accessible to everyone who owns Resident Evil Village and will feature characters from across the franchise. Capcom also announced that due to player demand, DLC is in the works for Resident Evil Village, but did not provide any additional information or a release date.

In a single screenshot at the end of its Resident Evil E3 segment, Capcom revealed that it is in the process of making DLC for Resident Evil Village. No additional information was provided, but Capcom promised “more info later”. Development has just started working on the DLC, meaning it will likely be a while before fans hear anything else. Initial fan reaction appears to be positive.

Resident Evil Re:Verse was previously announced in January 2021. The mode allows players to compete in 6v6 death matches with a variety of characters from previous Resident Evil games. The mode will be available everywhere that Resident Evil Village can be played. Fan reaction to the initial announcement was very negative, with many fans saying they’d rather see a return of the Outbreak gameplay mode from previous titles, but Capcom appears to be pushing ahead with Re:Verse. The mode is launching to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise.

Resident Evil Re:Verse will be available on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, PC, and Stadia, the same platforms as Resident Evil Village.

Resident Evil 4 is a few weeks away, but eager fans can play its opening chapter right now thanks to the newly released Chainsaw Demo. The non-timed demo allows fans to experience the upcoming remake's opening, which sees Leon S. Kennedy fending off a town full of angry villagers. It offers a taste of the full game's reworked combat system, but it also reveals some very significant story changes in the new version.

Like the original Resident Evil 4, the demo opens with a voice-over from Leon recapping previous Resident Evil games. The contents of those two openings are radically different, though.

If you're a Capcom fan, you're about to have a very good 2023. The publisher currently has some major plans for the first half of the year, with tentpole releases like Resident Evil 4 and Street Fighter 6 on the horizon. With so much in the works, it only makes sense that the company would want to hold its own Nintendo Direct-style livestream earlier than its typical June spot this year.

After seeing Resident Evil 4 remake in action, I’m eating my words
The Garrador stands tall in the Resident Evil 4 remake.

Despite loving Capcom's recent string of Resident Evil games, I've long been skeptical of the idea of a Resident Evil 4 remake. I've written about my hesitation previously, but my worry has always been that the current gameplay template seen in games like Resident Evil 2 and 7 support survival horror more than fast-paced action. My worry has always been that Resident Evil 4 needed its own careful treatment so as to avoid some of the issues that 2020's Resident Evil 3 remake had when trying to recreate its intense chase sequences.

After seeing 17 minutes of Resident Evil 4 gameplay, I'm eating those words. The upcoming remake certainly seems to be getting the job done ahead of its impending March 24 release.
