Project Resistance Gets First Gameplay Trailer and Details; Confirmed to Be Asymmetric 4v1 Multiplayer
Project Resistance (working title), the new multiplayer game set in the Resident Evil universe, was revealed today at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 by CAPCOM. As the latest teaser suggested, it'll be an asymmetric 4v1 multiplayer affair where a team of survivors tries to outwit another player who can set all sorts of obstacles on their path, including becoming a Tyrant.
This asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game combines both cooperative and competitive dynamics, with the opportunity for players to create their own survival horror experience. Four Survivors must work together to escape an insidious experiment and outsmart the twisted Mastermind behind the scenes. Capcom is developing Project Resistance in partnership with NeoBards Entertainment, utilizing the proprietary RE Engine known for high quality gameplay and remarkable visual fidelity in games such as Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5. It is currently being developed for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Steam.
In each 4v1 match of Project Resistance, one Mastermind player tracks the four Survivors through a network of security cameras, staying one step ahead at every turn to prevent their escape. The Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create dangerous obstacles for the Survivors, such as summoning vicious creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. He or she can also directly control zombies in play. In addition, Mastermind players can even step into the trench coat of the towering, deadly Tyrant for the first time in franchise history. 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 overcome the Mastermind’s challenges and survive the sinister experiment.
Project Resistance is playable at TGS, but you can already sign up on the official site for the upcoming Closed Beta test, due between October 4th and October 7th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The full game will also launch on PC via Steam.
