When the Resident Evil 3 remake ships this April, it will include a bonus game called Resident Evil Resistance. It’s a strategic multiplayer game with 4 versus 1 asymmetrical gameplay — meaning one of you will serve a very different role than the others.
One person plays the Mastermind, who lords over a map and lays out cards that summon deadly obstacles to prevent the other four, a group of Survivors, from escaping. The tools at the Mastermind’s disposal include traps, monsters, manipulating the environment and security cameras. The Survivors won’t be completely at the Mastermind’s mercy, however — items will spawn that will help them get past the traps and survive. But will they?
Four Masterminds can be chosen in Resistance. Capcom already revealed two, Daniel Fabron and Annette Birkin. They are joined by Ozwell E. Spencer and Alex Wesker (a relative of you know who).
Fans who recognize Alex Wesker from Resident Evil Revelations 2 might remember she employs a more indirect means to achieve her goals. As a villain who enjoys putting her subjects through psychological horrors and experiments, she makes the perfect Mastermind. Alex’s play style puts an emphasis on using traps, while also manipulating the map to slow Survivors down with roadblocks and enhanced zombies. As if these were not intimidating enough, when Alex gets really serious, she can call upon a vicious carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary bioweapon might not move, but in the right place it’s a powerful obstruction that keeps Survivors from their objective of escaping.
Ozwell E. Spencer has been a shadowy antagonist in the Resident Evil series, letting others do his dirty work. As the fourth Mastermind of Resident Evil Resistance, Ozwell is now taking a more hands-on approach. Enjoying his position as one of Umbrella Corporation’s founders, Ozwell uses the company’s cutting edge technology to torment Survivors. Unlike other Masterminds who summon controllable bioweapons (like Alex Wesker’s Yateveo, Annette Birkin’s G-Birkin and Daniel Fabron’s Tyrant), Ozwell instead generates a Disintegration Field that severely damages any Survivor who haplessly passes through it.
You can play Resident evil Resistance as part of Resident Evil 3 when it comes out for Playstation 4, XBox One and PC April 3.
