A couple of weeks ago, Capcom promised that it would soon be revealing a new Resident Evil game, which is currently under the working title, Project Resistance. Since then, speculation about the upcoming entry exploded online, with many people believing that Project Resistance is either a new Resident Evil Outbreak game, Resident Evil 3 Remake, or Resident Evil 8.
Today, Capcom dropped the latest trailer for Project Resistance. Unfortunately, the trailer barely left any clues as to what the upcoming entry actually is. But based on the footage so far, the game doesn't look like a traditional mainline Resident Evil game, which means that it's most likely not Resident Evil 8 or Resident Evil 3 Remake.
The trailer opens with four unknown individuals, who already appeared in a leaked Project Resistance photo last week. The characters find themselves in what looks like a standard bio-weapons laboratory and an unknown individual is seen watching them. The mysterious person then unleashed monsters that include zombies and lickers that the protagonists had to fend off. After successfully eradicating the monsters released, the group was then met by the infamous Mr. X, who was also directly controlled by the mystery person.
Based on what was shown so far, it is likely that Project Resistance will be a new spin-off game for Resident Evil. The trailer did not reveal any details about the game, but Capcom's Twitter caption says that it will be a "brand-new team-based survival horror experience." Ever since the announcement, many believed that Project Resistance might be a new Resident Evil Outbreak. However, based on the trailer alone, it appears that the game is leaning towards a more fast-paced action game, which is more similar to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, rather than the survival-horror focused Resident Evil Outbreak, but of course, it is too early to tell.
However, given that the trailer barely scratched the surface of what Project Resistance could be, there is still a possibility that Capcom may reveal a surprise or two, once the publisher shares more information about the game. Luckily, players won't have to wonder for too long, given that the trailer ended with a promise that more details about Project Resistance will be revealed soon during the Tokyo Game Show. The upcoming event will be held in Makuhari Messe International Convention Center in Japan on September 14 and 15.
Project Resistance is in development for unspecified platforms.
