Capcom finally revealed more official information regarding Project Resistance and explains the type of proposal that will be presented, the study behind it, some details about the closed Beta that will take place next month in October, and the new gameplay trailer.
A few hours before the official start of Tokyo Game Show 2019, Capcom has started with a few surprises by presenting the first gameplay trailer of Project Resistance, a game with a multiplayer proposal inspired by the catastrophic events of Resident Evil.
According to what is shown in the video, the context of Project Resistance refers to an experiment that takes place outside Raccoon City, where a group of survivors must escape from a twisted world full of dangers. This all is controlled by a person, described as a “Mastermind”, who will be in charge of preventing these 4 characters from leaving alive, and this person is can also control the zombies.
As mentioned above, Project Resistance is a multiplayer title in which 4 players will control one of the characters, while a fifth player takes over the Mastermind, much like Dead by Daylight. The players will go against the clock and must cooperate to get out alive, which means that teamwork will be essential, especially for the particular abilities of each character.
In that sense, one of the playable characters Tyrone is defined as a Tank which can withstand a lot of damage; Valerie will take care of healing the team members; Samuel will fulfill attack fixations thanks to his broad combat skills, and January, who is very tech savvy, will be able to deactivate cameras and manipulate electronic devices.
Through a press release, Capcom expanded the information revealed in the recent advance of Project Resistance and initially said the game will offer a mix of cooperative and competitive dynamics that will allow players to live their own Survival Horror experience.
The Japanese company also revealed that the team behind Project Resistance is NeoBards Entertainment, a company founded in 2017, with offices in Taiwan, China, Europe and the United States, which was responsible for the HD versions of Devil May Cry and Onimusha: Warlords.
As has happened with recent Capcom titles, they have created Project Resistance from the RE Engine, an engine that has had very good performance in the recent deliveries of Resident Evil and Devil May Cry.
On the other hand, Capcom announced that those interested in taking part in the Project Resistance Closed Beta, that will take place from October 4 to 7 on PS4 and Xbox One will have to register at this link. The company also informed that those with the status of Resident Evil ambassadors and members of The Xbox Insider Program may also be chosen for the trial period.
Will this Project Resistance cooperative horror experience be as successful as the Resident Evil saga? Probably not, but it could be a good contender if Capcom and NeoBards Entertainment deliver something out of this world.
