Resident Evil franchise celebrated the birthday earlier this week. The gaming franchise was launched 25 years ago and that’s super awesome. To highlight the occasion, there were a few reveals that were made by Capcom and by Google Stadia.
Stadia has revealed that Resident Evil 7 biohazard Gold Edition will be coming on Stadia Pro and the Stadia store on April 1. This includes add-on content such as the Banned Footage and epilogue episodes. Resident Evil Village will be released on Stadia at the same time as all other platforms on May 7, 2021.
If you want to get the game you can pre-order right now and if you buy the game before May 21, you can get a free Stadia Premiere Edition which comes with the Stadia Controller and Chromecast Ultra.
Capcom also announces new details for Resident Evil Village. If you buy Resident Evil Village, you’ll get the upcoming multiplayer experience Resident Evil Re:Verse for free. In addition, an open beta for Re:Verse will run from April 7 at 11 PM PDT through April 10 at 10:59 PM PDT for PS4, Steam, and Xbox One players to participate in. If you participated in the closed beta test and still have the game installed, it will be able to update once the open beta is live and run through that. Otherwise, players have to wait until April 5 to pre-load the open beta. You will need a registered Capcom ID to participate. It was also announced that a new Resident Evil Showcase would be happening in April (no date given) to give fans even more of a look into Resident Evil Village and Re:Verse.
Resident Evil Village will be released on May 7 on PC (via Steam), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Those who buy the PS4 and Xbox One versions will be available to upgrade to the digital version of the PS5 version and Smart Delivery for the Xbox Series X|S.
