One of the franchises that Capcom is best known for that has also spawned a few movies, is Resident Evil. Capcom has unveiled a trailer for Project Resistance, which is a new type of game for the Resident Evil franchise. Leaks in the past have hinted that the game would be cooperative, and the new trailer appears to confirm that.

The official trailer for the game shows a group of four survivors fighting their way through a building of some sort. The survivors are using shotguns, handguns, and melee weapons to kill attacking zombies and other creatures. The trailer also shows a fifth character sitting in a lab somewhere controlling the action by unleashing the zombies on the survivors. At one point, the character in the lab puts on gloves and takes control of the Tyrant.

While Capcom hasn't confirmed that a player would be able to control the zombies and other enemies that attack the survivors, it certainly seems from the trailer that might be a possibility. Capcom is signing gamers in Japan up for a closed beta for Project Resistance. Registration for the chance to be invited runs September 12, through September 19 for Xbox One and PS4 owners. The beta itself will run from October 4 through October 7.

There have been no details on a beta or game launch outside of Japan at this time. Capcom has said that more details on the game will be coming at the Tokyo Game Show 2019 kicking off September 12. It's been a while since we talked about Resident Evil, the last time was in 2018 when it was announced that the game would come to the Nintendo Switch. Back in 2017 when Resident Evil 7 launched it took only five days for hackers to crack the game's anti-tampering tech.
