In news coming out of the Tokyo Game Show, Capcom has announced that it is expanding the Resident Evil universe with Project Resistance, an asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game that combines both cooperative and competitive dynamics, giving players the opportunity to create their own survival horror experience.
In Project Resistance, four Survivors must work together to escape an insidious experiment and outsmart the twisted Mastermind behind the scenes. 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, weaponizing security cameras, directly controlling zombies in play, and stepping into the trench coat of the towering, deadly Tyrant for the first time in franchise history.
Survivors meanwhile 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.
