New Resident Evil: Project Resistance gameplay footage reveals tons of new details about the thrilling 4v1 online survival game.

The new Resident Evil multiplayer game is like a reverse Night Trap. Instead of trying to save people, you're trying to kill them in all sorts of creative ways. It's a 4v1 online PVP game where four survivors team up to take on the evil Mastermind, picking up items, solving puzzles, and generally smashing undead along the way. As the Mastermind you have all kinds of nifty tricks up your sleeve like summoning monsters like lickers or shambling flesh-eaters, setting up traps, locking doors, spawning turrets, and generally causing lots of mischief. The Mastermind is basically a demented D&D Dungeon Master.

Before now we didn't know a lot about the Mastermind. Capcom's Tokyo Game Show 2019 footage shows some awesome highlights. As the Mastermind, you can strategically place baddies across the map, and once they're spawned, you actually control the monsters you summon. That means you can play as zombies (but you can't play as the lickers). There's a balance though and you can't just summon willy-nilly.

How many things you can actually summon depends on your resources, which are in the form of cards for specific zombies and undead (there appears to be different classes of zombies, too). We're not entirely sure how you earn more resources or cards. It's possible they're finite for each match, but I'm betting the score system rewards you for doing damage to the survivors or when you outright kill them.

You can also spawn and play as the nefarious Mr. X as a fierce boss battle.

Each possess-able monster has different moves and attacks. The zombies have two attacks whereas Mr. X has four plus a special move.

The demo was in full Japanese, complete with Japanese text so there's a lot we don't know. But everything we've seen so far paints Project Resistance as an insanely engaging and thrilling experience with tons of tension, ingenious strategic potential, and focused-oriented action.

There's no word on a release date for the game but we could see it drop before Capcom's fiscal year ends on March 31, 2020.
