The beta itself will be available to download from Monday, April 5. Those who downloaded January’s closed beta test version of the game will not need to re-download the open beta test.
Re:Verse is an online-only title billed as a celebration of Resident Evil’s 25th anniversary and comes bundled for free with the upcoming Resident Evil Village.
The game has players controlling various Resident Evil characters in a six-person deathmatch. As shown in January’s player footage, players must collect virus samples littered around the map, which in turn increases their damage and accuracy.
Once killed, players are transformed into various monsters and can continue attacking other players. The type of monster you transform into is also determined by how many virus samples you collected before being defeated. Get enough and you can become a Tyrant.
Each character has unique weapons and skills, while the comic book style visual filter can be switched on and off via the graphics menu, should players prefer a more traditional look.
