An all-star roster of fan-favorite heroes and biological weapons is coming together to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil in the upcoming multiplayer Resident Evil Re: Verse experience. In Resident Evil Re: Verse, players start out as human characters, hunt each other and collect virus bottles scattered across the map. When taken out, they are resurrected as biological weapons to get revenge. The more bottles they collect, the more powerful their bio-weapon conversions will be – it is up to the player to decide between bottle collecting and a full-scale attack strategy. Today, Capcom announced that PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Steam players will be able to participate in the Resident Evil Re: Verse open beta test from April 7 to 11. Players who participated in the previous closed beta test and still have the game installed on their hardware will be able to play via a game update after the open beta is released.
