Capcom has released a gameplay overview trailer for its upcoming Resident Evil spin-off, Project Resistance. Project Resistance is a new 1 vs. 4 asymmetric online survival horror experience set in the world of Resident Evil. Players will unleash their inner evil as a cunning Mastermind or join the fight as one of the resourceful Survivors desperately trying to escape every obstacle the Mastermind puts in their way.
The Mastermind aims to gather valuable research data on how the subjects (Survivors) respond to fear. Moreover, the Mastermind will not face the Survivors directly. Instead, he or she will observe through the security cameras, setting traps to prevent their escape. However, the Mastermind will be able to take direct control of zombies and the Tyrant to attack Survivors.
On the other hand, Survivors will need to use their unique skills effectively to cover each other and defeat the creatures together. By completing objectives such as obtaining specific items, Survivors can advance to the next area. Survivors will successfully escape once they complete the third area in a level.
When a Survivor takes too much damage, they will start dying. They will not be able to move freely while in this state, but a nearby teammate can revive them. If they fail to get help in time, they will respawn, but lose a chunk of time.
Lastly, each survivor has his/her own special skills. Some of these skills are: damage reduction, healing, melee attack or hacking.
