Resident Evil 3's Resistance Mode Adds A New Mastermind In May

Jill Valentine is also now playable as a survivor in RE3's asynchronous multiplayer mode.


Resident Evil Resistance, the asynchronous multiplayer mode that released alongside Resident Evil 3, is introducing a new Mastermind in May. Antagonist Nicholai Ginovaef will join the roster for those who enjoy terrorising survivors with Tyrants, traps, and other nefarious means.

On the flip side, protagonist Jill Valentine, along with her trusty Samurai Edge and dodge, joins the ranks of survivors today. Capcom announced the news via Twitter with an updated roadmap for future content--with more scheduled to arrive in June and July onwards. Ginovaef will add to a Mastermind roster that also includes the likes of Alex Wesker and Annette Birkin.

In other Resistance news, Capcom recently announced that a patch is incoming with daily mission tweaks and more, after inviting feedback from fans.

Resistance is packaged as part of Resident Evil 3, which also hit a big sales milestone very quickly.

"As a remake, Resident Evil 3 not only falls short of honoring its source, but it also doesn't quite stick the landing as a standalone horror experience," Alessandro Fillari wrote in GameSpot's Resident Evil 3 review. "Even without taking into account the original game, or its predecessor, RE3 struggles to keep up with its pace amid a clashing of elements from survival horror and standard action. While it has a strong start and gives its principal villain some great moments, this truncated retelling of the concluding game from the original Resident Evil trilogy doesn't do it proper justice."
