“Details of the operational period for Resident Evil Re:Verse, including commencement of availability and any potential announcements relating to the end of service, can be found on the official website,” the copy reads. “Please note that, depending on the timing of your purchase of Resident Evil Village, Resident Evil Re:Verse may already no longer be available, and/or the title may become available through other means in the future.”
The description also links to a website for Re:Verse, which isn’t live just yet. The store page also lists the items contained in the Deluxe Edition of the game. Players who purchase the Deluxe Edition will pick up the ‘Trauma Pack’ which contains “the “Samurai Edge” weapon, the “Mr. Everywhere” accessory, a screen filter and special safe room background music.”
There is also a pack of bonus items available to players who pre-order any edition of the game. This includes a Mr. Racoon Weapon Charm, a Survival Resources Pack and a Resident Evil Village Mini Soundtrack.
We’ve also got a short blurb describing the premise of the game “Set a few years after the horrifying events in the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 7 biohazard, the all-new storyline begins with Ethan Winters and his wife Mia living peacefully in a new location, free from their past nightmares,” it reads. “Just as they are building their new life together, tragedy befalls them once again.”
The Resident Evil Showcase was announced last week and is set to take place today at 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern / 10pm UK (that’s 9am AEDT on January 22). Check out our article for all the details on how you can tune in.
