The Resident Evil spin-off is also under the same Umbrella (pardon the pun…), so it makes sense… doesn’t it?
So the closed beta of Project Resistance on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can show a thing or two for those who managed to get into Capcom’s 4v1 asymmetric adventure. They could find a few things, and that happened – for a few players, Project Resistance started to play the save room theme from Resident Evil 3. (That game came out in 1999, so it’s been quite old.) Have a listen to the video below that we took from Twitter. Crank up the volume a bit to hear it.
It’s not that surprising – the first, second, and seventh Resident Evil games’ save themes also show up in the background, but the first trailer briefly showed Jill and Carlos. Jill Valentine is the protagonist of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and we take control of Carlos Oliveira for a bit while we look for the cure of the T-Virus in a nearby hospital, as Jill gets infected by it when Nemesis attacks him. Could Project Resistance be the multiplayer component of Resident Evil 3 Remake?
„This asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game combines both cooperative and competitive dynamics, with the opportunity for players to create their own survival horror experience. Four Survivors must work together to escape an insidious experiment and outsmart the twisted Mastermind behind the scenes. Capcom is developing Project Resistance in partnership with NeoBards Entertainment, utilizing the proprietary RE Engine […].
In each four-versus-one 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, and weaponizing security cameras. He or she can also directly control zombies in play. Also, Mastermind players can even step into the trench coat of the towering, deadly Tyrant for the first time in franchise history. In turn, the Survivors 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,” Capcom’s press release says.
As we have previously heard rumours of Capcom remaking Resident Evil 3 after the success of 2 Remake, it’s a question of time when it will be announced…
