When first revealed at the Tokyo Game Show it looked as if Project Resistance was mainly going to be an online 4 vs 1 multiplayer game that looks to combine escape rooms with the Dead by Daylight gameplay format. That no longer appears to be the case. As it was revealed in a Q&A with the official PlayStation Blog by the producer of Project Resistance, Kawata Masachika, in order to satisfy fans that expect a story mode in Resident Evil games, Project Resistance will include a narrative centric offline mode.
Masachika also revealed that there will be a various number of both survivors and masterminds for players to choose from and all have their own unique skills. The survivors are normal citizens from Raccoon City kidnapped by the Mastermind who works for Umbrella Corps. The survivors must work together and survive the traps and zombies set by the Mastermind and escape in order to win. The Mastermind must stop them and can use a variety of methods to do so including controlling enemies like Mr. X.
Masachika went on to state that a lot of effort is being put into the balancing of Project Resistance to make sure both the survivors and mastermind have an equal chance of winning and that the game will also feature a leveling up system for the survivors. Even though the survivors at this point in time have all been normal citizens since Resident Evil has a vast amount of popular characters that have appeared throughout the series history, it is more than likely that one or two recognizable faces will eventually show up as survivors. While there is no exact release date for Project Resistance yet, the game will be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC when it is released and more information about the game can be found on its official website.
