Today during PlayStation’s State of Play, Capcom provided an update to Project Resistance — a multiplayer title that takes place in the Resident Evil universe. However, the trailer turned out to be for a different game entirely: Resident Evil 3.
Since the release of long awaited Resident Evil 2 remake back in February (which received a perfect score from us), fans have been wondering whether or not Capcom might also take a look at updating Resident Evil 3. Not only is Capcom doing it, but the game is also going to be here soon. April 3, 2020 soon.
The trailer shows off elements from the campaign which sees S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine surviving in a zombie infected Raccoon City both before, and after the events seen in Resident Evil 2, all while being chased down by Nemesis — a less dapper, but more terrifying version of Mr. X.
We also get glimpses of the other characters that Jill encounters, including fellow S.T.A.R.S. member Brad Vickers, as well as members of the Umbrella Biohazard Countermeasure Service (U.B.C.S.) such as Carlos Oliveira.
Additionally, the trailer also announces that the previously revealed Project Resistance, now called Resident Evil Resistance, (an asymmetrical 4 vs 1 multiplayer game) will be included with Resident Evil 3. Players will be able to assume the role of key Resident Evil characters such as Annette Birkin as you carry out experiments. Using a deck of cards, you’ll be able to manipulate the environment to place creatures and traps. These “Mastermind” players can also take direct control of elite bioweapon units such as the Tyrant. The other four players, the “Survivors” will have to work together while using their unique special abilities and a variety of weapons to try and escape the experiment before the time runs out.
Resident Evil 3 will launch next year on April 3 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam).
