Resident Evil: Code Veronica Is Getting a Fan-Made Remake

Resident Evil: Code Veronica is set to receive its very own fan-made remake – aping the Resident Evil 2 and 3 remakes of recent years – and aims to launch later this year.

As spotted by Eurogamer, the developers behind the project announced the 2022 release of their fan-made remake on Twitter where they showed off a trailer for the game (in the tweet, below):

According to the remakes's website, the the Code Veronica remake is set to be completely free when it launches and will be released in three chapters. While the development team hasn't specifically stated whether or not the chapters will be released as a single package or individually over time, they have noted that each chapter will last approximately four hours.

At launch, the remake's gameplay system will adapt and improve upon features that debuted in an earlier demo version of the game. These include tweaked movement animations to give the game a more realistic feel, a dodge function similar to that which featured in the Resident Evil 3 remake, and a new zombies system that will give the game's dead a bite attack – bringing them more in line with Capcom's very own zombies.

As well as changes to gameplay elements, the remake will also bring with it a fire and rain reaction system, graphical enhancements, and redesigned lighting. The developer has also noted that the game will include a variety of language settings that fans will be able to set and change from within the game itself.

Currently, the development team has said that it is working to "optimize [the game] as much as possible so that everyone can play without performance problems". However, the team has also announced that it will be releasing a Lite version of the game, which will be for PCs "with very low resources."

It's worth noting that while the remake is slated for a 2022 release, the developers make clear that Capcom still reserves all of the rights over the Resident Evil IP and therefore could decide to cancel the project at any time.

Code Veronica was originally released for Sega Dreamcast in 2000, and takes place 3 months after the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3. In the game, Claire and Chris Redfield explore an island prison and an Antarctic research facility respectively, each of which is suffering a zombie outbreak. Back in 2000, we awarded the game a 9.2 review, but we gave a 2011 remake of its extended edition, Code Veronica X a 5/10.
