Now Playing: Project Resistance - Teaser Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Capcom has officially revealed a new Resident Evil game called "Project Resistance." Its existence has been known for some time now, with leaks indicating that it would be a multiplayer experience of some sort. The official trailer, released as part of the Tokyo Game Show, confirms this to be true. [Update] Now that Tokyo Game Show has officially kicked off, Capcom has released a gameplay video for Project Resistance, which you can take a look at below.

Four characters are shown fighting their way through an office building-like setting, using guns and melee weapons to take out zombies and work their way through a series of sticky situations. Interestingly, another figure is shown to be orchestrating everything from the comfort of what looks to be an Umbrella lab; the shadowy organization no doubt has a big part to play in events, as is usually the case with Resident Evil games.

Alongside the classic shambling undead, Project Resistance will be pulling from the Resident Evil franchise's more iconic enemies. The trailer ends with the Tyrant appearing and the mysterious figure pulling strings behind the scenes assuming control, hinting that a player will be able to take control of enemies in the game. All of this gives it a definite Left 4 Dead feeling.

Project Resistance looks to be a four-versus-one asynchronous online multiplayer game. It's developed on the same engine powering the Resident Evil 2 remake. As of yet, there hasn't been any details on when the game will be released and, given the title, it may be some time before the final version is launched.

From September 12 through September 19, Xbox One and PS4 owners in Japan that are interested in the game can sign up for a chance to be invited into a closed beta for Project Resistance. The beta will take place from October 4 to October 7. Details on a beta outside of Japan have not been revealed yet.

Those at Tokyo Game Show, meanwhile, can get their hands-on with the title but need to have registered in advance to do so. Project Resistance will have a booth at TGS where attendees can watch members of the development team show off gameplay for the first time. Capcom has not indicated whether this footage will be released for those not in attendance to see.

The last Resident Evil game to be released was the remake of Resident Evil 2, which GameSpot awarded a 9/10. "Resident Evil 2 is not only a stellar remake of the original, but it's also simply a strong horror game that delivers anxiety-inducing and grotesque situations, topping some of the series' finest entries," said Alessandro Fillari. "But above all, the remake is an impressive game for the fact that it goes all-in on the pure survival horror experience, confidently embracing its horrifying tone and rarely letting up until the story's conclusion. Though Resident Evil 2 has its roots firmly in the past, it reworks the familiar horrors into something that feels brand new and all its own." You can read the full Resident Evil 2 Remake review for a more thorough analysis of the game.

Each survivor comes equipped with his or her own special skills, and players will need to coordinate to solve puzzles and stay alive. See gamivo for more information.

i doubt there will be a 5th player to compete against. that player is supposed to send enemies to the other 4? how exciting! yeah, no, who would want to play that guy? .....exactly.

it certainly looks more like a wave-based survival game with enemies from the RE-universe. but just seeing that licker (nice animation btw!) having absolutely no impact whatsoever makes me kinda sad, considering that they are really scary enemies in the older games (and the newly remade one). my guess is this game is just supposed to be dumb fun. nothing wrong with that, if you're into it.

but did the characters really have to be teenagers?! they couldn't have been adults? hmmm...

So many negative comments, you are not forced to buy it, heck you are not even forced to play it. And you still have not seen ACTUAL game play, why are you complaining on a cinematic. I for one play all RE games, and I think 1v4 could be fun since the only (that I know of) game that actually functions 1v4 is dead by daylight and it is very addictive and fun. Not like the 13th nonsense with 12 players that everyone mix into the 1v4 category. Neither am I a fan of L4D series so hopefully it is different.

@ember_to_flame: Maybe so, it's just any game made by any developer will result in broken trust in those who bought their games before. And capcoms always had a roller coaster ride on likes and dislikes. Same could be said for final fantasy, halo and destiny, and the dreaded EA franchise.

But your free to choose, aliens Vs Predator, or left4dead1 and 2, or evolve, or cryteks the hunted, and there's gears 5, world war z.

There's plenty however those games you listed do not stand on the tide of titans.

As much as I enjoy co-op gaming, I can't get hyped for this. The memories of the dismal Outbreak games still leaves bitter thoughts about the franchise. There's no way I will be playing this on day one unless something truly groundbreaking rears it's head.

This game looks like it's coming straight from 2008.

It looks like a botched version of Left for Dead...

Meh.... 😅

The creature models look great,

The character models look out of place, it reminds me of that failed versus mode of resident evil.

I don't mean to be a downer, but I stopped at RE3. The story wasn't going anywhere and it just became a cash cow for Capcom.

This is just like Assassin's Creed. Dumping random games hoping the fans will be there forever.

@tlpina: Then you've missed some of the best games in the entire genre: RE 4 & 7 and Code Veronica. RE2 Remake is also a fantastic game but you'll know the story already if you played the original.

5 & 6 were definitely cash cows though as were the Outbreak games, I agree with you there.

Learn from L4D and improve upon it, while placing this game in the RE Universe, and it could be really fun!

I came here excited about a new RE game. Leaving sad after realizing it is a 4 vs 1 type of junk.

@scatterbrain007:

That is funny, same here. I like L4D except tge stupid sequel a year later. $60 down the drain. Multiplayer does not work when better whole sequel is out.

Well… I think many RE fans (like yours truly.) are looking at this entry more with apprehension than excitement.

Previous efforts by Capcom to deliver on the RE multiplayer front have been met with mixed reactions; and that’s putting it mildly.

Capcom has been hitting everything out of the park lately so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. I just hope this isn’t a case of one step forward and 2 steps back.

If it's anything better than Until Dawn gameplay-wise and it has a twisted story intervention into the RE world mix then I'm happy

Left 4 Dead but player control instead of dircector, may be something fresh.

Because we clearly didn’t want a RE 3 remake or RE 8 first ?. I swear with Capcom it’s like one step forward and two steps back.

This isn't Outbreak. This is just another conceptually generic, mechanically bankrupt, action driven extension to the cooperative sphere. A virtual hamster wheel for the downtrodden. ?‍♂️

All I'm asking for is a decent single-player experience.
