Beta sign ups are now live for Project Resistance, a 4 v 1 asymmetric multiplayer Resident Evil game where four players attempt to survive and escape as a nefarious mastermind orchestrates the situation to ensure their demise.
In Project Resistance four players will attempt to stave off everything an evil mastermind throws at them while attempting to escape from a monster-filled Umbrella facility. The survivors were all captured for use in Umbrella’s experiments and they all have unique skills that will aid their escape. However, the Mastermind has a whole lot of nasty tricks up his sleeve that will impede their progress…
The Mastermind’s aim is to gather data on how each subject responds to desperate situations and they must also prevent the subjects from escaping. The player controlling the Mastermind can observe the action via security cameras, set traps, lock doors and place monsters. For a bit of hands-on action the Mastermind can even take control of zombies or a powerful tyrant and deal with the survivors face to face.
It’s a great looking game that seems to blend the fiction of Resident Evil with the co-op zombie blasting gameplay of Left 4 Dead. The Beta is due to start on October 4th and will run until October 7th, sign ups are live until September 18th and those that are chosen will be notified on the 30th.
To sign up for the Project Resistance Beta on Xbox One you need to sign up via the Xbox Insider Program, which requires you to download the Xbox Insider app and then sign up within the app.
