Capcom had previously announced the development of an online multiplayer edition of the Resident Evil franchise. Players can play their favorite heroes from the franchise in this fight for revenge. The gameplay features 5-minute deathmatches between four to six players, and the one with the most points gets the win.

The title also lets players turn into powerful bio-weapons after they die. The more virus capsules they obtain, the deadlier they become after their death. Once they have transformed into such a weapon, they can take their revenge on opponents and earn more points.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the franchise, Capcom announced at E3 2021 that it will be offering a copy of Re:Verse for free to everyone who buys Resident Evil Village. Moreover, the studio has also announced a launch date for Resident Evil Re:Verse. While Tsuyoshi did not reveal the exact date, he said that the game will be releasing next month.
