What you need to know

  • Resident Evil Resistance is an asymmetrical multiplayer game.
  • It's coming as part of Resident Evil 3 Remake in April 2020.
  • More villains and maps were revealed today.
  • You can preorder Resident Evil 3 on Best Buy (opens in new tab).

Today, Capcom announced two new "Masterminds" joining the Resident Evil Resistance roster. If you're unfamiliar with the title, it's an asymmetrical survival horror experience included with Resident Evil 3. Alex Wesker and Ozwell Spencer will be part of the game. According to Capcom, "this duo rounds out Umbrella's team of Masterminds in Resident Evil Resistance, alongside the previously announced newcomer Daniel Fabron and the notorious Annette Birkin."

Alex Wesker from Resident Evil Revelations 2 employs a more indirect means to achieve her goals. Ozwell Spencer takes a more hands-on approach. It'll be interesting to see both of their approaches and abilities. Hopefully, Resident Evil Resistance will be well-balanced when it launches.

Two new maps that were revealed were "Casino" and "Abandoned Park." Both are pretty self-explanatory. Hopefully, the design will be complex and feature a lot of places to hide. Just so you know, Resident Evil Resistance will be included with Resident Evil 3 on April 3, 2020. You don't have to pay for it separately.
