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.

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.
