Two more masterminds are joining Resident Evil Resistance...
...For those not familiar, Resident Evil Resistance is a 4 versus 1 asymmetrical survival horror experience which will be included with the upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake. Today, Capcom has announced two more "Masterminds" joining the experience, as well new artwork showcasing the maps where Masterminds will put players through a trial of survival!
In Resident Evil Resistance, "one Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create dangerous obstacles to prevent a group of Survivors from escaping – such as summoning vicious creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. In turn, Survivors must work together using their own special abilities and items they come across to thwart the Mastermind, and escape the experiment before time runs out."
The two characters rounding out the Masterminds will be Alex Wesker and Ozwell Spencer, joining already announced Daniel Fabron and Annette Birkin.
From the Press Release: "Fans who recognize Alex Wesker from 'Resident Evil Revelations 2' might remember she employs a more indirect means to achieve her goals. As a villain who enjoys putting her subjects through psychological horrors and experiments, she makes the perfect Mastermind. Alex’s play style puts an emphasis on using traps, while also manipulating the map to slow Survivors down with roadblocks and enhanced zombies. As if these were not intimidating enough, when Alex gets really serious, she can call upon a vicious carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary bioweapon might not move, but in the right place it’s a powerful obstruction that keeps Survivors from their objective of escaping.
Ozwell E. Spencer has been a shadowy antagonist in the 'Resident Evil' series, letting others do his dirty work. As the fourth Mastermind of 'Resident Evil Resistance', Ozwell is now taking a more hands-on approach. Enjoying his position as one of Umbrella Corporation’s founders, Ozwell uses the company’s cutting edge technology to torment Survivors. Unlike other Masterminds who summon controllable bioweapons (like Alex Wesker’s Yateveo, Annette Birkin’s G-Birkin and Daniel Fabron’s Tyrant), Ozwell instead generates a Disintegration Field that severely damages any Survivor who haplessly passes through it."
As for the two new maps announced, players will play in a casino and an abandoned park, which you can find screenshots of below, along with the Masterminds and that creepy Yateveo plant.
Resident Evil 3 releases on PS4, Xbox One and Steam on April 3rd, 2020.
