After the success of a Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 remake and rumors buzzing of a possible remake of Resident Evil 4, fans of the long-running survival horror series have clamored for a remake of Resident Evil CODE: Veronica. While it doesn’t seem to be in the cards over at Capcom, two diehard fans of the series have taken it upon themselves to give CODE: Veronica a much-desired update.
Developers Briins Croft and Matt Croft are working on this remake in the Unity engine and look to give fans a mix of modern and past Resident Evil games. The game will support the newer style of over-the-shoulder gameplay that will lead the players through a beautifully recreated 3D environment, while still keeping much of the original’s charm.
For the diehard fans, the developers will also be including a classic mode that will support classic fixed camera angles making it feel more like the original Dreamcast version.
The developers have taken it upon themselves to have the gameplay and numerous assets be built from the ground up in order to make it as authentic as possible. They’ve even mentioned the possibility of a multiplayer mode after they’ve finished the game’s main campaign.
The game will also be free upon release in order to avoid any Cease and Desist by Capcom which is good news for the fans! Briins and Matt Croft have stated in the FAQ of their Discord server that the first chapter of the game should be ready to release by June of this year with 3 other chapters to be released after.
