Resident Evil Resistance is the multiplayer game being bundled with Resident Evil 3, which pits four Survivors against a terrible Mastermind, who is studying their escape attempts for evil science research. While closed tests with selected participants were previously held, there's an upcoming open beta that will allow anyone interested to dive in and check it out.

The beta is now live on Xbox One as of March 27 and will run through April 3. Unfortunately, the Steam beta was pushed back due to technical issues, but after only a couple days, it's now available. Here's how to download it.
