Does Rebbeca Chambers Die? Neither the PS1 or GameCube versions make it very clear. Does she die or did she leave?

If you combine the storylines of both Chris and Jill games and beat it the correct way, the survivors are: Chris, Jill, Barry, and yes Rebecca, and Wesker (seen only in Umbrella Chronicles). So yes Rebecca DOES live and make it out.

There were a series of novels based on the games as well as original stories. The first book was a novelization of the original game, and detailed both Chris and Jill's stories. In the end (like mentioned above) The survivors are Chris, Jill, Barry and Rebecca. side note: In the novels, in the next book (an orignal story) Rebecca goes to Massachusets to aid another S.T.A.R.S. unit. She is also in the other original story which is book 5

The Tyrant virus, or T-virus, is the main virus used by Umbrella, and is responsible for the creation of most of their BOWs.

According to reports in the game, Dr. James Marcus succeeded in creating the tyrant virus at the Arklay Management Training Facility on September 19, 1978 through synthesis of the Progenitor virus and leech DNA. Through this synthesis, the photosensitivity of the early Progenitor strain was replaced with pyrosensitivity, a property that can be seen in most of the series' enemies.

The Tyrant virus allegedly operates similarly to most other RNA viruses, but also has the abilities to reanimate dead tissue, to substantially mutate its host, and to infect nearly any tissue in any type of host. It animates dead tissue by killing and replacing any mitochondria in infected cells, and then combining with these cells to produce enough energy for motor and lower brain functions. By doing this, most of the body's systems, such as the circulatory or respiratory systems, are made redundant. However, this process has the drawback of severe necrosis in the host, and produces the distinctive rotted appearance of most BOWs. The mutations are produced when the virus incorporates itself into the host's genetic code and considerably alters it. Creatures with genetic structures different than humans generally show less severe mutations, and usually only increase in size.

As a side effect of the virus' consumption of its host, specifically its digestion of the host's frontal lobes, all hosts suffer from increased aggression. The virus also damages the hypothalamus, which results in a flood of neurotransmitters, enzymes, and hormones which induce a psychopathic rage and hunger in the host.

'Daylight' is the only T-virus vaccine, but must be taken before transformation. The film series presents a preventative vaccine known simply as the 'anti-virus', which must be taken within several hours after the initial infection. In Resident Evil, it is revealed that if the anti-virus is taken too late, the T-virus will cause it to be rejected. Umbrella also attempted to develop several other vaccines; T-vaccine was created by WilPharma, but an employee was selling it, as well as T- and G-virus samples, on the black market to bio-terrorists. 'AT1521' was Umbrella's first official attempt at a vaccine, but the original sample was destroyed. There was also an unnamed vaccine being developed under the Raccoon General Hospital in Resident Evil 3 that was used to save Jill Valentine.

Unfortunately the game had to be censored for its international release. Actually, this term is quiet complicated because there do exist many different versions of the game. First of all: The original Japanese version is uncensored. But it looks like that this does not apply to the Japanese Nintendo DS version. But every other Japanese Version is completely uncensored, no matter on what platform.

Regarding the international versions, only the PC versions have been released uncensored. However, there do exist some censored PC editions, e.g. in the UK. Here, an uncensored and a censored version are available for PC. The console versions (PSX, Sega and Nintendo DS) only include a censored version. However, different censored versions are available. The most common one is the first edition. Here, the intro video is cut and only available in black and white, an ingame sequence is cut (a head which has been torn of) and the ending is different. Some later released console versions have the intro in colour but do still miss some other moments, like the ingame sequence. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
