Sign ups for a Resident Evil closed beta test for a Resident Evil 25th Anniversary Title have appeared on the official website. While the exact details are scarce, Capcom has shared when the closed beta test will be held and on which platforms it will appear. Registration is currently open until January 25, 2021.
The closed beta test will be held on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and Xbox One, though the website specs list do include the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X will run the previous console generation hardware’s versions, if you are accessing the closed beta test through either console. In order to register, you must have a Capcom ID linked to a Resident Evil Ambassador account, be eighteen years or older, and have one of the supported systems.
Resident Evil Ambassadors with a Silver Rank or above will have a greater chance of being selected for the beta. Gold Rank members will have a five times better chance of being picked, where Platinum rank players’ odds will be ten times better.
The Resident Evil closed beta test will be held at the following times:
