Today throughout PlayStation’s stage at Tokyo Game Show, Capcom revealed new particulars about Project Resistance, a team-based survival horror sport set within the Resident Evil universe coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. And like a earlier teaser trailer alluded to, the sport is principally Left 4 Dead meets Resident Evil. Okay, that is a bit reductive and never tremendous precise, but it surely’s roughly the case, and if that mixture would not get you excited, you could verify your pulse.
If you are not aware of Left 4 Dead, some extra trendy counterparts for the sake of comparability could possibly be Dead by Daylight or Friday the 13th: The Game, each of which have discovered nice success within the massive void of uneven horror multiplayer video games. That all mentioned, right now, Capcom additional fleshed out the title by revealing a brand new gameplay overview trailer and revealing the next pitch:
“Will you work with your allies as a Survivor, or will you crush their attempt to escape as the vicious Mastermind? The choice is yours in this 4 vs 1 asymmetrical co-op experience.”
As you might know, the final couple of years have seen a robust Resident Evil resurgence. Between all of the re-releases and Resident Evil 7, the collection was alive and properly going into 2019. And then Resident Evil 2 hit, and cemented itself as an early contender for Game of the Year, spot it nonetheless holds.
“Resident Evil 2 is a survival horror expertise in its truest sense,” reads a snippet from our evaluate of the sport. “From a constantly teased false sense of security, to horrifying instances that go far beyond a simple jump scare, this remake is one that every fan of the original needs to play. For those that aren’t familiar with the Resident Evil franchise in its humble beginnings, it’s still a treat, albeit imperfect, and one that requires no previous knowledge of the other games.”
All of that is to say, Capcom has constructed some critical momentum with Resident Evil, and will probably be attention-grabbing to see if it might lengthen that momentum with a spin-off sport. It’s dangerous, however even when Project Resistance would not hit, I’m certain Resident Evil 8 and Resident Evil 3 Remake will greater than make up for it within the coming years.
