Game producer and leader of game development Masachika Kawata recently explained some of the details for upcoming video game spinoff Resident Evil: Project Resistance.
Resident Evil: Project Resistance Mastermind is not just one type
A gaming publication recently interviewed Kawata and talked about several details about the upcoming spin-off. One of those is the detail about the main villain of the game – Mastermind.
Kawata explained that the Mastermind is actually an individual that works for the villainous Umbrella Corps. He or she kidnaps citizens for test subjects. They are then forced to face zombies for research on how to develop viruses.
The producer specifically explained that the one behind TGS 2019 trailer was only Daniel. Mastermind will have different variations with different styles on how to plan and torture its victims.
Here’s his full statement:
To put it simply, the Mastermind works for Umbrella Corps to kidnap citizens. These human test subjects are forced to face zombies for research on how to develop viruses.
At TGS 2019, you only experience Daniel as Mastermind, but there are many variations of the Mastermind. The same goes for the survivors and there are more survivors with unique skills and looks that we are planning to add into the game.
Offline mode confirmed
In another part of the interview, Kawata happily revealed that the game will have an offline mode so that it will satisfy certain fans of the game franchise. It will be focused more on the narrative component. It was revealed that developers did not plan to create the game with online mode only. They wanted to satisfy all fans of the franchise.
The game will launch on PlayStation 4. No release date was announced yet.
Here’s the trailer:
