Resident Evil Multiplayer Game Teased, Closed Beta Coming
You can sign up for a chance to test an upcoming Resident Evil multiplayer game.
Capcom has invited fans to sign up for a closed beta test for an upcoming Resident Evil multiplayer game, a title that apparently has not been announced yet. Or perhaps this is all related to Resident Evil Village and Capcom is intentionally keeping that a secret for now.
Coinciding with the announcement of the Resident Evil Showcase, Capcom has launched a website that mentions a closed beta test for a game that will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil. The beta test will run on PS4 and Xbox One, though people with a PS5 or Xbox Series X|S who are accepted into the beta can play via backwards compatibility.
More details about the beta test will be shared during the Resident Evil showcase on January 21. Nowhere on the page is the name Resident Evil Village mentioned, though the landing page includes "Village" as a directory.
Whatever the case, the beta test itself will be held on January 28 and 29, and you have until January 25 at 6:59 AM PST / 9:59 AM EST to register. Capcom said people who are in the Resident Evil Ambassadors program will have a better chance at getting selected. Silver members will have a 2X chance of getting in, while Gold members have a 5X chance, and Platinum users have a 10X chance.
The website mentions that this new Resident Evil game supports 4-6 players, but that's all the information that's available at this stage. Capcom has tried Resident Evil multiplayer before, most recently with Resident Evil Resistance.
Resident Evil Village, meanwhile, is slated for release in 2021 on PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. The first-ever gameplay footage and a new trailer will be released during the Resident Evil Showcase on January 21.
