How to prepare for RE Resistance
The Resident Evil Resistance is an upcoming game bundled with Resident Evil 3. Here’s what we know so far.
What is Resident Evil Resistance?
Resident Evil Resistance is an asymmetric survival horror game that takes place in the midwestern town of Raccoon City. While it debuted months ago in September 9, 2019, the game appeared to be a standalone game. However, the official website confirmed that the title comes bundled with Resident Evil 3. The features are akin to Resident Evil 2’s Ghost Survivors, with a group of civilians trying to make it out alive, however this time, players go up against another player.
What is an asymmetric game?
The game follows an asymmetric style where a group of four survivors attempt to find a way out of a facility controlled by a mastermind. The style is reminiscent of other co-op survival games and has players go through objectives in the form of puzzles in order to uncover an escape route.
Who are the survivors?
Players take control of one of many playable survivors. The group consists of a rag-tag bunch of civilians, likely high school or college students, who were kidnapped and forced to cooperate with Umbrella’s experiments. The role of the survivors is to escape.
Each survivor comes with his own skills which range from damage reduction, melee, healing, to efficiency of using traps. A survivor needs to work with one another to have better chances of outwitting the mastermind.
Below is a summary of the survivors and each of their specialty.
|Samuel Jordan||Dash Punch, Fists of Iron|
|January Van Sant||Overload, EMP|
|Valerie Harmon||Survival Instinct, Modified First Aid Spray|
|Tyron Henry||Power Kick, Rally|
|Becca Woolett||Sentry Stance, Bullet Storm|
|Martin Sandwich||Makeshift Mine, Flash Batton|
What is a mastermind?
Going against the survivors is the mastermind. If the survivors need to cooperate to escape, the mastermind’s sole duty is to prevent them from doing so. Since the mastermind knows the layout of the facility, he makes use of security cameras to monitor the survivors’ actions.
When playing the mastermind, the player uses cards which can either set a trap or summon an enemy on the spot. On top of that, the mastermind can choose one of the enemies and take full control of it to potentially gain the upper hand.
Below is a list of playable masterminds.
- Daniel Fabron
- Annette Birkin
- Alex Wesker
- Ozwell E. Spencer
What is the objective?
Survivors win if they manage to exit the facility before the timer runs out. The mastermind wins if he can prevent all the survivors from getting out.
When is the open beta testing?
The open beta is scheduled to come out at 3:00 a.m. Friday, March 27 through 3:00 a.m. Friday, April 3 (EDT) on the Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
