Project Resistance Will Include Additionnal Maps at Launch
Project Resistance is a multiplayer game included with Resident Evil 3 Remake, but both titles are completely separate games.
Back in December, DualShockers covered a Famitsu interview with Capcom and Resident Evil 3‘s producers Peter J. Fabiano and Masao Kawada. The interview most notably revealed how Resident Evil 3 is more action-oriented. You can read about that in detail here. This week, a lengthier version of this interview was published online by Famitsu, with a few additional details on Project Resistance, the asymmetrical multiplayer game included in the REsident Evil 3 Remake.
We most notably learned that both games are actually completely unrelated. Project Resistance is described as a “Festival Game”. The game isn’t meant to fit in the narrative of the Resident Evil series so far. It still has some characters in common so fans can make up fun theories, but you shouldn’t think about it too much.
We also learned that while only one map was available in the Project Resistance demo, the final game will include multiple maps.
Lastly, while we have no info regarding the non-Japanese versions of the game, in Japan, Project Resistance has Cero D level of content, meaning it’ll be pretty tame in the gore department. And the game doesn’t get any gorier even for Japanese fans who will pick the Cero Z version of Resident Evil 3.
As a reminder, in Japan, games with the highest age rating, Cero Z/18+, get less store publicity as they can’t be sold without age confirmation. Unless it’s a huge franchise like Resident Evil, Japanese developers avoid getting that rating on their games at all costs, as well as the second-highest rating, CERO D/17+. As such, Resident Evil games in Japan always have a Cero D version, and a Cero Z version. Moreover, games with heavy realistic gore such as the Resident Evil series are often censored, and for example, even the Cero Z version of Resident Evil 2 ultimately was less gory than the non-Japanese versions.
Resident Evil 3 launches on April 3, 2020, for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Digital preorders on PS4 include a nice PS4 theme.
