Fight as The Tyrant in new Resident Evil spin-off Project Resistance

Capcom continues to push the limits with its Resident Evil universe. We got our first look at the working title Project Resistance, an asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game. Like Resident Evil 7, this looks to be an intriguing and exciting new way to experience Resident Evil.

As one of a team of four survivors you have to withstand the attack of the mastermind, who’s gunning for players with a variety of attacks including the Tyrant.

Here’s the synopsis:

In each 4v1 match, one Mastermind player tracks the four Survivors through a network of security cameras, staying one step ahead at every turn to prevent their escape. The Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create dangerous obstacles for the Survivors, such as summoning vicious creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. He or she can also directly control zombies in play.

In addition, Mastermind players can even step into the trench coat of the towering, deadly Tyrant for the first time in franchise history. In turn, the Survivors must cooperatively work together as a team to fend off the Mastermind’s attacks and complete puzzle style mission objectives to escape the map before time runs out. Each Survivor possesses unique skills to help their team overcome the Mastermind’s challenges and survive the sinister experiment.

This sounds like my kind of online experience.
