It's being billed as a "new experience" set in the Resident Evil universe.

Capcom has officially announced a new go at survival horror. It's not quite a mainline Resident Evil title, but it is set in the same universe as those games. It's called Project Resistance (working title) and it is an asymmetrical online multiplayer game for up to five players. The game is, and stop me if you've heard this one before, a four vs. one game. A group of four survivors must work together to try to escape the horrors around them. A fifth person plays as the Mastermind. The Mastermind can summon creatures, set traps, and even take control of some of the enemies directly.

Capcom is developing this alongside NeoBards Entertainment. Just like Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5, Project Resistance is being built on the RE Engine. It's currently in development for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.

In addition to this official reveal, Capcom also announced that there is a special early access chance for potential fans. You can sign up for a chance to participate in the Project Resistance closed beta for the PS4 and XB1. Registrations are open now for RE Ambassadors and Xbox Insiders until September 18. The actual beta will run from October 4 through October 7.

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.
