Resident Evil RE:VERSE release date, details & more

Resident Evil RE:VERSE will be releasing alongside Resident Evil: Village. Here’s everything you need to know.

Published

on

Resident Evil RE:VERSE has released in a closed beta state for select Resident Evil Ambassadors. Here’s the rundown of the new multiplayer game.

Announced during the Resident Evil panel alongside gameplay of the upcoming Resident Evil: Village, was a new multiplayer game set in the RE universe, titled RE:VERSE.

The game will be available as a purchase bonus for pre-orders of physical and digital buyers of Resident Evil Village. It comes completely free as a bonus and may be available separately at a later time, according to the official Capcom website.

The Basics

RE:VERSE is a celebration of 25 years of Resident Evil. The game includes some of our favorite heroes and villains from the franchise. In this game, players participate in a free-for-all style deathmatch where they can fight as “survivors” or “bioweapons”.

The goal of the game is the same as any deathmatch game, where you need to eliminate as many enemies as possible in the given time limit. The games are quite fast as of the closed beta, and only last 5 minutes each.

During this time period, Survivors are to eliminate as many bioweapons and other survivors as possible, while collecting virus capsules to upgrade the bioweapon they become when killed. For example, if you collect just one capsule before death, you may become Jack Baker from Resident Evil 7. If you get two, you can become Nemesis from Resident Evil 3.

Bioweapons

For the beta, we had a total of five different bioweapons. If you did not have any capsules on death, you’d automatically become a fat molded from Resident Evil 7.

If you did have capsules, you’d randomly get a bioweapon for the number of capsules you had. For one, you could become the Hunter or Jack Baker, and for two you’d become either Nemesis or the Super Tyrant.

Each Bioweapon has its own set of abilities themed around the character. Nemesis has his signature rocket launcher, and Jack Baker comes equipped with chainsaws.

Heroes

The heroes are your standard characters of RE:VERSE and current include some franchise favorites like Ada Wong, Hunk, and Claire Redfield. Each character comes equipped with a pistol with unlimited ammo, and a more powerful secondary with limited ammo.

You can find ammo around the battlefield for these weapons, as well as an assortment of green herbs to heal when low on health.

The abilities are the real stars of the show, with heroes like Claire Redfield capable of throwing electrical traps to stun enemies, and even heal herself on demand. Another hero, Hunk, can make himself invisible and assassinate enemies in just one shot.

Each character has enough variety to feel unique, and the balance was quite decent for a beta.

Future Support

Capcom has not commented much on the future of RE:VERSE, but we can speculate that the game will have much more to offer at launch.

Since this title seems to mostly be focused on rewarding long-term Resident Evil fans with an entertaining multiplayer title alongside Resident Evil Village, we’re uncertain if Capcom plans to add a DLC.

We’ll update you if we hear any additional information.

Fortnite Season 8 has included a brand-new Trap item to the game, with Armored Walls making your structures much more powerful. Here’s how to find and use this new defensive item.

Following the news that Fortnite will be crossing over with designer fashion house Balenciaga, Epic Games has brought even more content with the September 21 hotfix. In this small update, they’ve announced a Fourth Birthday event, given players the chance to unvault an item, and added a new Trap.

The Armored Walls Trap covers builds in thick metal plating, giving “any building piece a whole bunch more HP.”

Here’s how to find and use this powerful new item.

Creating a safe area to hold down is one of the most important strategies to winning a game of Fortnite. Maintaining the high ground and having solid cover is ever-important and now your defense can now be even stronger thanks to the new Armored Walls Trap.

These Armored Walls have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale matches with the September 21 update. In the accompanying announcement, Epic Games revealed that Armored Walls can be found in Supply Boxes and on the ground. So, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find them, you just need to loot around.

How to use Armored Walls in Fortnite

Armored Walls are Uncommon Traps, so will go into the Trap inventory slot. Like placing the old Damage Traps or Bouncers, you just need to approach one of your own structures with Armor Plates in your inventory and press your Trap keybind, e.g T.

The wall will now become a thick metal structure with 2,500 HP, so the enemies will have an extremely hard time breaking through. However, it works both ways, so be careful you don’t box yourself in!

Here’s a quick summary:

  1. Build or approach one of your walls in Fortnite
  2. Have the Armored Walls trap at the ready
  3. Press your Trap button to apply it to the surface

And that’s how you can find and use Armored Walls in Fortnite Season 8! For more guides, check out how to level up the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass fast.
