Capcom has kicked off their 25th anniversary celebrations of the Resident Evil franchise by announcing that the pack-in with Resident Evil Village, the PvP multiplayer game Resident Evil RE:Verse, will have an open beta across consoles and PC in April.
Announced via Capcom’s official Biohazard Twitter, the beta will run from April 8 at 2am ET to April 11 at 2am ET for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series, with the preload beginning on April 5th at 8pm ET. You’ll need to have a Capcom ID linked to your hardware before playing. Those who previously downloaded the game during its closed beta test won’t have to download it again.
The primary purpose of the test (according to the announcement page) is to check the server load, as well as any balance issues with the game itself. Any issues that arise during the test will potentially have the server taken down for maintenance, so don’t be surprised if everyone flooding the server to play causes some downtime.
Resident Evil RE:Verse launches alongside Resident Evil Village on May 7 for PC via Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series.
