Ozwell E. Spencer and Alex Wesker look to ensnare survivors in Resident Evil Resistance, new screens showcase Casino and Abandoned Park maps.
Capcom has revealed two new maps and Masterminds for Resident Evil Resistance, the asymmetric multiplayer companion title to the company’s upcoming Resident Evil 3 remake.
The new Masterminds include Alex Wesker and Ozwell E. Spencer, who use their own unique skillsets to foil the efforts of the Survivors. You can find the full breakdowns of each character below courtesy of Capcom.
“Fans who recognize Alex Wesker from Resident Evil Revelations 2 might remember she employs a more indirect means to achieve her goals. As a villain who enjoys putting her subjects through psychological horrors and experiments, she makes the perfect Mastermind. Alex’s play style puts an emphasis on using traps, while also manipulating the map to slow Survivors down with roadblocks and enhanced zombies. As if these were not intimidating enough, when Alex gets really serious, she can call upon a vicious carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary bioweapon might not move, but in the right place it’s a powerful obstruction that keeps Survivors from their objective of escaping.”
Ozwell E. Spencer
“Ozwell E. Spencer has been a shadowy antagonist in the Resident Evil series, letting others do his dirty work. As the fourth Mastermind of Resident Evil Resistance, Ozwell is now taking a more hands-on approach. Enjoying his position as one of Umbrella Corporation’s founders, Ozwell uses the company’s cutting edge technology to torment Survivors. Unlike other Masterminds who summon controllable bioweapons (like Alex Wesker’s Yateveo, Annette Birkin’s G-Birkin and Daniel Fabron’s Tyrant), Ozwell instead generates a Disintegration Field that severely damages any Survivor who haplessly passes through it.”
In addition to the new Masterminds, Capcom also revealed two maps: a derelict casino littered with broken slot machines and hastily-discarded chips, and an abandoned horror-themed amusement park locating on the outskirts of Raccoon City.
Resident Evil 3 is a complete remake of Capcom’s 1999 survival horror classic in the spirit of last year’s Resident Evil 2 remake. It will be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 3, 2020.
