The Resident Evil franchise has been around for decades and it’s brought out some incredible big video game titles to even movies. However, it’s not a surprise that the game franchise has been tested with different avenues. We went from the standard survival-horror franchise with players dealing with scarce resources and overpowering enemies to an action-horror oriented gameplay. However, the trend as of late over at Capcom is heading back to its roots. As a result, the latest main installment was a true old school survival horror title while the company has also gone back and brought out a remake to Resident Evil 2. Now the attention has been shifted towards Project Resistance.
Before its official unveiling, there was plenty of speculation that this game would be either a remake announcement for Resident Evil 3: Nemesis or a look back to the Outbreak series for the franchise. What we got was a new series where players are tossed into a 4v1 where a group of civilians has to complete a series of enemies that are controlled by the opposing player. Essentially, the enemy player will be working with Umbrella and creating traps along with placing creatures in a room for the four opposing players to deal with.
Unfortunately, the reception has been mixed with fans not exactly thrilled over the direction this game will be taking players. That may soon change as a recent post through the official PlayStation blog alerted fans that the game would receive a single-player offline campaign which would be a bit more traditional to the Resident Evil franchise. With that said, there was no real details as to what players can expect. For now, it’s a waiting game to see just when this title will launch though a closed beta will be taking place during the start of October for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
