Resident Evil Re:Verse hit with a big delay at the last minute

Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil Re:Verse, a multiplayer game mode originally intended to ship with Resident Evil Village, has been delayed once more. That is probably obvious to those who have been following Re:Verse, as it was slated to release sometime this month. However, considering that we’re now halfway through July and there’s been no word on a specific release date, the writing was probably on the wall for Resident Evil fans.

Indeed, today Capcom announced that Resident Evil Re:Verse has been delayed once more, and this time it’s a big one. Capcom has pushed the multiplayer game back to 2022, leaving it at that and not getting any more specific. That is a hefty delay, and with no indication of when in 2022 Re:Verse might arrive, it’s possible it could be a year or more before we see it launch.

“The previously announced July 2021 launch of Resident Evil Re:Verse is being moved to 2022 so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience,” Capcom said on Twitter today. “We will share updated launch details at a later time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.”

In a follow-up tweet, Capcom said that those who purchased a physical copy of Resident Evil Village should either keep track of their Re:Verse download code or redeem it now. Redeeming it now is probably the wiser move since that will add it to your account and allow you to download Re:Verse whenever it becomes available.

So, if you were looking forward to Resident Evil Re:Verse, the wait just became significantly longer. With its new 2022 release window, we probably won’t be hearing about this game for some time to come, but we’ll let you know when Capcom shares more information about it.

‘Resident Evil Re:Verse’ gets a last-minute delay to 2022

At this point, it’s almost a surprise when a notable game slated for 2021 isn’t delayed. The latest title to slip to 2022 is , the upcoming multiplayer take on the horror franchise. What stands out with this delay, however, is that is putting the release date on ice only a week or two before the game was supposed to drop.

“The previously announced July 2021 launch of Resident Evil Re:Verse is being moved to 2022 so that the team can continue working to deliver a smooth gameplay experience,” the Resident Evil crew . “We will share updated launch details at a later time. Thank you for your patience and understanding.” 

Re:Verse was announced as a freebie for those who own Resident Evil Village. Capcom those who have a physical copy of Village keep their Re:Verse download code in a safe place or add it to their account so they’re ready to roll when the game finally drops.

Re:Verse is effectively a separate deathmatch mode in which between four and six players pick a Resident Evil character and duke it out in short battles. When you die, you return as a zombie. The player with the most points after five minutes wins.

Game development is a complex process where all manner of things can go wrong. We’ve seen time and time again that , especially amid the impact of COVID-19. Pushing back Re:Verse by at least six months at the last minute is a curious case, though. A lengthy delay indicates the game isn’t close to being ready despite the July release window.

Although it’s an add on for a main-series Resident Evil game, the delay will be disappointing to those who were looking forward to Re:Verse. Still, it’s better to have a game that arrives late and works properly from the jump rather than one that needs months of post-launch hotfixes and larger patches .

iPhone 13 rumor claims Apple may add reverse wireless charging

It seems like rumors concerning the next generation of Apple products never end. When the latest generation of devices like the iPhone launch, rumors about the next generation begin to surface. Some new rumors are making the rounds concerning the iPhone 13 and what we might be able to expect for the next-generation iPhone models.

One of the most interesting of the new rumors is that Apple is integrating larger wireless charging coils. One potential reason for the integration of larger wireless charging coils is to allow for reverse wireless charging. Reverse wireless charging is something that’s been available on the Galaxy line of smartphones for a while.

With the Galaxy line of smartphones, reverse charging allows users to turn their phone into a wireless charging device for someone else’s phone. That means you can use one fully charged Galaxy device to charge another that is about to go dead without needing an outlet or cables.

Larger wireless charging coils could also improve heat management and allow higher wattage, possibly leading to faster wireless charging. However, the source of the rumor, Max Weinbach, says the reason for the larger charging coils could be because the iPhones will feature stronger MagSafe magnets. Interestingly, filings that Apple made with the FCC for the current generation iPhone show that all iPhone 12 models have the ability to reverse wirelessly charge other devices. However, Apple didn’t roll that feature out.

Other reports have indicated that Apple intends to roll out reverse wireless charging on the next-generation iPad Pro expected in 2022. As for why the current generation iPhone models allegedly have support for reverse wireless charging, and it wasn’t implemented, it may be because of a significant battery drain. The larger battery inside an iPad Pro would allow the tablet to operate longer while sharing its power with an Apple Watch or AirPods.

Samsung’s low-cost Galaxy A-Series phones aim to reverse U.S. smartphone slump

While its thousand-dollar-plus flagship phones might get all the attention, Samsung’s best-selling phone of 2019 wasn’t the Galaxy S10 or the Note 10+, it was the $350 A50. Now, with a global smartphone slump that has hit the Galaxy S20 hard, Samsung is doubling down on that strategy.

Update 4/9: This article has been updated with specs and buying information for the A01 and A51.

Make that sextupling down. On Wednesday, Samsung announced six new Galaxy A phones coming to the U.S., ranging from the ultra-cheap $110 Galaxy A01 to the $600 Galaxy A71 5G. The handsets have an array of different features and specs, but they all have three things in common, which Samsung calls “everyday essentials.”

That means you’ll get premium-grade displays, cameras, and batteries, and lots of storage at an affordable price. All six phones also have dual, triple- and quad-camera systems with ultra-wide, depth, and macro lenses, big screens, and larger batteries to keep them powered all day.

The rollout begins Thursday, April 9 with the A01, which will be exclusive to Verizon stores for a limited time, and the A51, the successor to the A50. The rest of the A-Series phones will expand to “select carriers” as the launch continues throughout the summer. Here’s what we know about how the lineup breaks down:

A01

  • Display: 5.7-inch HD+ Infinity-V LCD
  • Processor: Snapdragon 439
  • Camera (Dual): 13MP Wide + 2MP Depth
  • Battery: 3,000mAh
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 16GB
  • Price: $110

A11

  • Display: 6.4-inch HD+ Infinity-O LCD
  • Processor: Octa Core (1.8 GHz)
  • Camera (Triple): 13MP Wide + 5MP Ultra-wide + 2MP Depth
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Price: $180

Samsung has loaded up its new A Series phones with dual, triple, and quad cameras.

Galaxy A21

  • Display: 6.5-inch HD+ Infinity-O LCD
  • Camera (Quad): 16MP Wide + 8MP Ultra-wide + 2MP Depth + 2MP Macro
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • RAM: 3GB
  • Storage: 32GB
  • Price: $250

Galaxy A51 4G/5G

  • Display: 6.5-inch FHD+ Infinity-O Super AMOLED
  • Processor: Exynos 9611
  • Camera (Quad): 48MP wide + 12MP Ultra-wide + 5MP depth + 5MP macro
  • Battery: 4,000mAh
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Storage: 128GB
  • Price: $400/$500

A71 5G

  • Display: 6.7-inch FHD+ Infinity-O  Super AMOLED Plus
  • Camera (Quad): 64MP wide + ultra-wide + depth + macro
  • Price: $600

The most intriguing of the six phones are the two 5G models, which will likely use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 765 or Samsung’s own Exynos 980 processor, both of which offer integrated 5G modems for superior power efficiency. With most 5G phones costing at least thousand-dollars, the A51 and A71 could lead the way for speedy U.S. adoption of the next-gen network, especially as phone buyers tighten their purse strings.

The Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A01 can be ordered through Verizon.com
