Capcom are looking for Resident Evil beta testers, is it for Resident Evil Village?

Capcom have announced they are looking “for a closed beta test celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Resident Evil.” Now that sounds a little ambiguous but there is clues as to what this beta test is for. It’s really quite obvious one, the url for the test is ““, which clearly has Village in it, the next Resident Evil game.

The beta test code is only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, no next gen versions or PC, although if you have a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S then you can use the last gen version. There are some terms and conditions before you can sign up.

  • 1. You have a CAPCOM ID.
  • 2. Your CAPCOM ID is linked to the Resident Evil Ambassador program.
  • 3. You are 18 years old or over.
  • 4. You own supported hardware (PlayStation®4, PlayStation®4 Pro, and Xbox One)
    Note: If you have a PlayStation®5, the PlayStation®4 version will be accessible, and if you have the Xbox Series X, the Xbox One version will be accessible.

To become a Resident Evil Ambassador you must also sign up to that program, which you can do here. “Resident Evil Ambassadors with a Silver rank or above will have a greater chance of being selected for the beta,” say Capcom, “Silver: x2 chance, Gold: x5 chance, Platinum: x10 chance.”

The first round of beta tester applications will end on January 20th, 9:59AM (EST) / 6:59AM (PST), with a second round finishing on January 25th, 9:59AM (EST) / 6:59AM (PST). The test is running at various times over a couple of days so you should be able to find a time to play.

  1. Won’t be for Village as that is next-gen only :-)
    Outbreak3 is my guess, which would be amazing.
