Two out of the three platforms got unlucky, and in return, they revealed something that we expected.
„We’re aware that the PlayStation 4 users trying to play the Resident Evil Resistance beta are experiencing matchmaking issues at this time, and are working on resolving the problem. Please stay tuned for further updates. We appreciate your patience!”, Capcom wrote yesterday on Twitter. A few hours later, the situation got worse: „Due to technical issues, there is a delay for the Resident Evil Resistance Open Beta on PlayStation 4 and Steam (PC). The Xbox One version is unaffected and is available. We’re working to resolve the issue as soon as we can and will keep you updated. Apologies for the inconvenience,” they added. After looking at their feed, we did not see any newer tweets, meaning the issue is persistent, so only the Xbox One users can play this 4v1 asymmetric multiplayer’s beta that will stay active until the game’s launch. But we don’t have high hopes: in October, the closed beta was terrible, and this video (in the Big Bill Hell’s parody style, no less) recaps why it was so bad.
Here’s also a trailer that features Jill Valentine. They snuck a scene in where Jill helps someone from Resident Evil Resistance, which practically confirms the protagonist of Resident Evil 3 (Remake) joining RE Resistance as well. At least she doesn’t have a stupid name like Martin Sandwich. She won’t be alone: other familiar faces will be there, such as Ozwell E. Spencer (the co-founder of Umbrella Corporation) and Alex Wesker (the antagonist of Resident Evil Revelations 2).
Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil Resistance will both launch on April 3 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It’ll be the first major release for Capcom in the next fiscal year, starting April 1.
