Recently, Capcom sent out emails to Resident Evil Ambassadors, aka fans who registered for the latest game info, to search for game testers. Selected testers will be trying out a game that’s currently in development.
The first one was sent to fans in Japan earlier this month and the second was to their American fans just last week. Interested fans will have to register via the given email and then wait to be called up if chosen.
According to the email shared by Biohaze, there are two requirements for selection:
1. You must be registered in the Resident Evil Ambassador Program.
2. You must have played a previous Resident Evil title in the past.
The testing dates for Japanese and American testers differ. For Japan, the tests will be held on either 8 or 9 September this year whereas for USA, they are split into two possible locations with one taking place on either 20 or 21 September in Los Angeles, and the other on 23 or 24 September in New York. Chosen American testers will have to manage their own transportation arrangements.
Nothing else is said in the invite, not even the title of the game or its description. Could it be another remake of an old game in the series? Or an entirely new game? It’s hard to tell. But it sure sounds exciting since they’re reaching out to fans of the franchise to get feedback.
The Resident Evil franchise was first created in 1996 with the survival horror video game called Resident Evil. The last Resident Evil game that came out was Resident Evil 2 in January this year, a remake of the 1998 version of the same name. The last original title was Resident Evil 7: Biohazard that was released in 2017.
