Capcom Showcase unleased more RE, Exoprimal, and Street Fighting.
Capcom had a pretty awesome showcase to show off their snazzy new releases. You can re-watch the show below if you want. It’s a solid 3 hours, and worth your time. If you don’t have the time, then we have the cliff notes below.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village is getting it’s first DLC. The Winters’ Expansion arrives Oct. 28, 2022 on all available platforms.
This includes a big change, a Third-Person Mode for the campaign.
On top of this The Mercenaries Additional Orders features new stages and playable characters Chris Redfield, Heisenberg, and Lady Dimitrescu; and a continuation of the story in Shadows of Rose.
Set 16 years after the events of Resident Evil Village, this new tale follows Rose Winters. Rose is the daughter of main protagonist Ethan, as she struggles with her terrifying powers. Players must explore and survive a warped realm inside the consciousness of the Megamycete in search of a cure.
Resident Evil Village Gold Edition, a bundle of the Winters’ Expansion and the main game, will also launch on Oct. 28, 2022 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and Xbox One.
A new multiplayer experience, Resident Evil™ Re:Verse, was also announced. It will be free for Resident Evil Village players, will go live on the same date.
Resident Evil Village Producer Tsuyoshi Kanda also shared the game’s main story is now in production for PSVR2.
Resident Evil 4
RE4 fans were in luck. Director Yasuhiro Ampo and Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi discussed the modern reimagining of the 2005 classic. The development team aims to dial up the original release’s key feelings of loneliness and the fear of enemies blinded by zealotry; when the action-packed survival horror title reawakens March 24, 2023.
Until then, players can sink their teeth into three enhanced Resident Evil games.
RE PS5 and Xbox Series X|S ports
RE2, RE3, and RE7 biohazard have reanimated today on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. With it they bring 4K resolution, ray tracing, high frame rate, and 3D audio.
These cutting-edge features offer a more vivid, smooth, and immersive experience. DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support is also available on PS5. PS4 and Xbox One players can upgrade at no additional cost via the digital upgrade program and Smart Delivery.
To prepare players before they suit up in mechanized combat armor and join the fight, Exoprimal Director Takuro Hiraoka presented a briefing on the dynamic main game mode, Dino Survival.
Before you mech up and get fighting, the Director for Exoprimal has some words. Takuro Hiraoka presented the main game mode, aptly names Dino Survival. Dun dun duuuun!
In this multiplayer experience, two squads of five Exofighters race to complete orders assigned by Leviathan. Leviathan is a totally casual and sinister artificial intelligence behind the dinosaur outbreaks. Teams must complete missions before their rivals to win, stay alive, and continue searching for a way to escape Leviathan’s deadly games.
The new trailer teased a selection of objectives that make up Dino Survival. This includes VTOL Defence, where squads defend downed aircraft from dinosaur onslaughts. Thrown in the mix is Omega Charge, which introduces a massive hammer that Exofighters will wield to obliterate targets. The video also unveiled two new Assault class Exosuits that are absolutely armed to the teeth. Barrage, a burning bombardier, and the rail gun-wielding sniper Vigilant join a growing armoury of futuristic suits that teams can swap between on-the-fly to coordinate and overcome any challenge. While many situations pit players against hordes of dinosaurs, there are others where they clash directly with opposing squads, and even some where rival teams must band together to take-down common foes, like the twisted Neo Tyrannosaurus.
Before you get too excited, they teased a 10th anniversary celebration. Might something be announced there? dunno.
Either way, at the show Dragon’s Dogma Director Hideaki Itsuno joined the program to thank fans as the open-world action franchise celebrates its 10th anniversary.
