Project Resistance announced
An asymmetric online five-person multiplayer title set in Resident Evil universe
Capcom has announced a new game set in the Resident Evil universe, Project Resistance (working title).
This is an asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game. In each 4v1 match, one Mastermind player tracks the four Survivors through a network of security cameras, to prevent their escape. The Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create obstacles for the Survivors, such as summoning creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. He or she can also directly control zombies in play.
In turn, the Survivors must cooperatively work together as a team to fend off the Mastermind’s attacks and complete puzzle style mission objectives to escape the map before time runs out. Each Survivor possesses unique skills to help their team.
Capcom is developing Project Resistance in partnership with NeoBards Entertainment, utilizing the proprietary RE Engine.
Xbox Insider Program members and RE Ambassadors will be eligible for a chance to participate in the Project Resistance closed beta on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The closed beta will run from October 4 through October 7. Registration will be open between Sept. 11 and 18 at the official website.
Project Resistance will be released on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
