Capcom Reveals New Resident Evil Resistance Masterminds

Capcom shared more details about Resident Evil Resistance today. Offering up sneak peak at newly reveal maps and Masterminds (RER’s antagonists), they continue to pique my interest.

Two more Masterminds join the fray. Alex Wesker, from Resident Evil Revelations 2, is all about her traps. She’s good at using roadblock and such to slow down her prey. Map manipulation is key though. When all else fails, she can summon a carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary character can keep survivors from reaching an objective.

Ozwell E. Spencer, on the other hand, uses a different means of attack. As one of Umbrella Corps. Founders, he’s able to use the company’s cutting-edge tech – like a disintegration field that severely damages survivors who pass through it. He can’t summon boss characters like his peers. That said, he’s still a threat for unsuspecting players.

Beyond the Masterminds comes the new maps. Players will need to complete objectives in a large Casino and an Abandoned Park. And by park, I mean a horror-themed park located on the outskirts of Raccoon City.

Resident Evil Resistance is an asymmetrical multiplayer experience that’ll be packaged with the Resident Evil 3 remake. The mode centers on players (acting as survivors) trying to escape various environments while a player (acting as the Mastermind) tries to stop them.

Resistance feels like an evolution of Resident Evil Outbreak. I’m looking forward to checking it out when RE3 launches later this year.

Resident Evil 3 will be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC on April 3rd.
