[Update]: Resident Evil 3 has been announced, and it will come bundled with a 'free' copy of Resident Evil Resistance!

It would appear that the recent rumors were completely true. Not only is Capcom looking to create a multiplayer-focused Resident Evil spin-off, but they're also aiming to have it be an asymmetrical PvP affair, somewhat similar to games like Dead by Daylight.

How Project Resistance works is fairly simple. The mastermind player acts as a sort of dungeon master by placing enemies and setting up traps, all in order to bring down the four survivors and foil their plans. On the other side of the coin, each of the four survivors has to make good use of their unique abilities and strengths in order to help their allies and beat back the zombie hordes, as well as complete a variety of objectives in order to escape from the mastermind's clutches.

Personally, this reminds me more of the oldschool Half-Life 2 mod called Zombie Master than Dead by Daylight. This both excites and scares me, because achieveing any sort of balance in these types of game modes is incredibly hard, mostly because of how drastically different coordinated and uncoordinated teams can tackle the same sort of scenarios. As such, I can only hope Capcom has some neat tricks up their sleeve or Project Resistance might end up with the same sort of troubles as Zombie Master.

But enough of my babbling. You can learn a little bit more about Project Resistance over at the official website. And as a final note, I'll leave you with the recently posted gameplay overview trailer. Enjoy!
