While we got the official trailer for Project Resistance a few days ago, Capcom has now debuted Project Resistance gameplay and a lot of info about the upcoming game set in the Resident Evil universe! We now know that it’ll be an “asymmetric” multiplayer game (ie: Dead by Daylight, Friday the 13th: The Game), and will feature the “Mastermind” as a player-controlled villain!
Here’s the official gameplay description straight from the press release:
In each 4v1 match, 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.
Also mentioned in the press release, Capcom wil be holding a special Project Resistance closed beta on PS4 and Xbox One. Members of the Xbox Insider Program and RE Ambassadors will be eligible to participate in the beta that will run from October 4-7. Registration will be open between September 11-18 at the official site. More details regarding the beta will be revealed at a later date.
What do you make of the Project Resistance gameplay revealed so far? Do you think this will gain the same success as the other asymmetrical multiplayer games?
