Mysterious ‘Resident Evil’ beta points towards new multiplayer game

Resident Evil is seemingly getting a new multiplayer entry, with a beta coming before launch.

Following the announcement of a Resident Evil Showcase arriving next week (January 21), a mysterious new page was discovered on the series’ website, which suggests a new multiplayer game will also be announced.

The page offers gamers the opportunity to register interest for a closed beta, that is said to be “celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Resident Evil”. It will be available on both PS4 and Xbox One, and has a genre specification as multiplayer for four to six players.


The registration period runs between January 14-25. Between that time, numerous players will be selected on specific dates for the registration eventually closes. Anyone interested will need a Capcom ID that is linked to the Resident Evil Ambassador programme for a ballot entry.

It’s said that anyone with a Resident Evil Ambassador rank of silver or higher is in for a greater chance of being accepted. Those with gold and platinum will be considered even further.

While it’s still unclear what the project actually is, more news will likely surface during next week’s Resident Evil Showcase, which is set to deliver news on the upcoming Village and other aspects of the franchise.

A new trailer and gameplay will air during the presentation, giving viewers their first look at Resident Evil Village, which has been described as the conclusion to the new story which kicked off in Resident Evil VII: Biohazard.


A new Resident Evil film is scheduled to release later this year, with filming confirmed to have finished late last year.

‘Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ is getting a new Zombies map soon

Treyarch have announced a new Zombies map for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be arriving very soon.

Since its launch back in November, fans have been craving more Zombies modes and maps, with many believing they would have to wait until Season Two for a new map since the mid-season update seemingly emitted any new areas for players to dive into.

In a recent blog post, Treyarch have revealed the wait will not be much longer as a new map known as Firebase Z will arrive on February 4, available for free for all players on all platforms.


Very little is known about the new map as of yet outside of the fact that the new map will place players in “Outpost 25, known by the code name Firebase Z”. More details have been promised over the coming weeks.

See the announcement below:

The mid-season update for Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War dropped yesterday (January 14), bringing a wealth of new modes and maps for players to dive into. Standard multiplayer received a new “massive” map known as Sanatorium, as well as a new mode known as Dropkick. Zombies also received a variant of the Cranked game mode, previously seen in multiplayer.

In recent weeks, Call Of Duty: Warzone also received a massive update, adding the first map since the game’s launch. Rebirth Island drops players into a smaller location set on Alcatraz Island, forcing close quarters combat.


Call Of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is also offering free access to its Zombies mode up until January 21 for all players.
