Earlier this morning, a Japanese Resident Evil account confirmed the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake will be collaborating with PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds mobile game. Although no details have been confirmed, judging by the brief teaser available, it appears the mobile port will be getting a new Zombies mode akin to Call of Duty.
“PUBG MOBILE × Resident Evil RE: 2 collaboration is decided!,” the roughly-translated tweet reads. “What kind of innovative play can be produced by combining the world’s most popular mobile game and survival horror’s monument, two super IPs?”
The news follows the base game announcing a Suicide Squad collaboration starring The Joker and Harley Quinn. The mobile port of PUBG has been getting its own events independent of the base title, and this looks to be one of them. Check out the teaser below and share your thoughts.
