Earlier today, Capcom released the first official teaser for its upcoming multiplayer Resident Evil spinoff, which is so far only known as Project Resistance. We are unsure if that title will stick for the final release, but it’s looking like that may be the case if the official accounts are any indication. The trailer is only a cinematic one, but many more details are expected to be revealed later this week at Tokyo Game Show.
The game is being described only as a “team-based survival horror experience” but appears to be cooperative in nature, pitting four characters against various types of classic Resident Evil enemies. It’s possible that the game could draw on the 4v1 online multiplayer archetype in some way or in an additional game mode, but all speculation at this time seems to point towards this being a four-player co-op experience at its core.
Longtime followers of the franchise are hopeful Project Resistance may be a modernized take on the PlayStation 2-era Resident Evil Outbreak and its File #2 sequel, as an experience similar to those titles would certainly be better received than other recent multiplayer spinoffs. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what further announcements reveal
Capcom will be in attendance at TGS 2019 to show off the first gameplay reveal the afternoon of Thursday, September 12th in local time, which will be late Wednesday night for those of us here in the United States. Pre-registered attendees will be able to play the game at the company’s booth during the event, but all fans can at least look forward to the big reveal when it happens.
Project Resistance does not yet have any sort of release date, but it will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates.
