Everything we learned from today’s Resident Evil Showcase
First up, we got official news on Resident Evil Village’s release date. Playstation owners are in for a treat this May and folks who have yet to secure a PS5 will be happy to know that digital purchases of the PS4 edition will get a free upgrade to the PS5 version at no additional cost.
Those who have been able to snag a PS5 console and cannot wait to get their filthy mitts on the next Resident Evil game will be happy to know that a PS5-exclusive demo is up for download. It will be known as Maiden.
In possibly the biggest surprise of today’s event, Ubisoft is teaming up with Capcom to celebrate Resident Evil’s 25th anniversary. Starting in early February, players of The Division 2 will be able to score Resident Evil-themed cosmetics and more during a limited-time digital event.
We also got news of an all-new multiplayer spinoff game celebrating the history of the Resident Evil franchise is on the way for consoles and PC. RE: VERSE will be free for all buyers of Resident Evil Village and will get a beta test in the coming week.
For more news on Resident Evil Village and all the fanfare surrounding this year’s 25th-anniversary celebration of Capcom’s survival horror franchise, keep it tuned to Shacknews.
