Kicking off Tokyo Game Show this week, Capcom released a practically-3-minute gameplay video for its asymmetrical group-primarily based Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance. And it turns out it is primarily an escape area challenge gone awry. Thoughts you, I’ve by no means personally completed an escape area challenge but I’m quite positive laying bear traps on the floor is frowned upon by the superior company bureau.
We initially got a glimpse of Project Resistance earlier in the week when Capcom released its teaser trailer. Now with the release of this new vid we get a appear at actual in-game combat, confirming that, yes certainly, this is Raccoon City’s answer to Dead By Daylight.
Project Resistance is a horror punch-up that joins 4 survivors of a seemingly Umbrella Corps-triggered zombie apocalypse against a player-controlled Umbrella Corporation “Mastermind.” The latter character, an evil francais lab technician, keeps an eye on that pesky Scooby Gang by cycling by means of camera feeds and sets traps for them all through the match. The gang itself is tasked with just acquiring the hell out of there without the need of dying. So, classic 4v1 stuff.
Issues go quick and hectic in Project Resistance. The surviving foursome represent your additional-or-much less standard RPG roles – the healer, the hacker, the fighter, the tank – and they’re up against the clock attempting to find puzzle pieces or destroy distinct crucial things ahead of it runs out. Our pal Mastermind, on the other hand, can summon zombies to their place (and even zworp to their location to play as them), set traps, and release the hulking Mr. X – whose need to have for a standard moisturising routine strikes horror in the hearts of any who meet his eye.
Project Resistance will be beginning its closed beta period October four, operating till October 7. You can now sign up to verify it out for your self (but note that the beta test is only PS4 and Xbox proper now).
