Project Resistance Gets Closed Beta Dates and Overview Trailer from Capcom
Project Resistance is a 4v1 asymmetric multiplayer game in the Resident Evil series that will get a Closed Beta in October.
After some testing and teasing in August, Capcom officially revealed 4v1 Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance last week. Today, during Tokyo Game Show, we got more information about the game and an overview trailer. Capcom also confirmed that they will be holding a Closed Beta for Project Resistance in October for those interested in trying the new Resident Evil game out early. Check out the latest trailer for the game below:
As many probably gathered from the previous trailer, Project Resistance is an asymmetric multiplayer game where four players cooperate to escape a building where everything is controlled by the Mastermind, a fifth player. Players on the survivors’ side can expect a gameplay mix of puzzle-solving and combat similar to modern Resident Evil games, though matches are under a time limit. Meanwhile, the Mastermind is placing traps, using security cameras as weapons, and manipulating the environment to make their opponent’s escape as hard as possible. This is done through a card-based system, and the Mastermind can eventually choose to control zombies or the Tyrant.
If you have ever played the multiplayer in ZombieU, that’s the closest thing to compare this new game to. Project Resistance is being co-developed by Capcom and NeoBards Entertainment, a company who has previously worked on the Nintendo Switch ports of Resident Evil games. The game runs on the RE Engine too, so we can probably expect it to look very good. As I mentioned earlier in the article, a Closed Beta will be happening between October 4 and October 7 on PS4 and Xbox One. It will only be open to RE Ambassadors and Xbox Insider Program members though, and you have to sign up on the game’s website between today and September 18.
Those at Tokyo Game Show this week will also have the chance to try out this game. You can see the latest screenshots for this new Resident Evil spin-off below. Project Resistance does not have a release window at this time, but DualShockers will let you know when more is revealed about this title.
