Project Resistance closed beta codes are being sent now, as shared by a Resident Evil ambassador on ResetEra. We’re close to the beginning of the beta, which comes out on Oct. 4.
“Hi Resident Evil Ambassadors, thank you for your continued support of the Resident Evil franchise!” says the email going out to those who applied for the closed beta. “Also, thank you for applying to participate in the Project Resistance Closed Beta Test for the PlayStation 4 available only to Ambassadors! We’re pleased to announce that you have been chosen from many applicants to participate!”
At the time being, the closed beta only goes to PlayStation 4 users. But the full game is launching on PC and Xbox One as well, at a yet to be disclosed date next year.
To be precise, your time on the client goes from Friday, Oct. 4, 12:00am to Monday, Oct. 7, 12:00am (PST). This timeframe is an “estimate,” so things could change on the fly. In case you applied, make sure to check your email for this message with the PlayStation 4 code.
As you might have heard, the Project Resistance reveal hasn’t been met with much enthusiasm among members of the community. People were already waiting for a Resident Evil 3 remake or Resident Evil 8 announcement after two games in a row in the RE series were massive hits.
However, Capcom has defended its choice to go and try something new. It’s always been somewhat active in the multiplayer space they’re capitalizing their efforts on the RE Engine. The excellent work done on the previous two titles to get back in a genre where they’ve never really been successful. Hopefully, they do this time.
