Project Resistance is far from being the new Resident Evil game announcement everyone wanted, but for fans of asymmetrical multiplayer games it could be a fun distraction while waiting for either Resident Evil 8 or Nemesis Remake to be announced. And you'll soon be able to sample a taste via its upcoming closed beta for which you can discover its date, time and signing up process for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One below.
Most fans expected Project Resistance to unearth a multiplayer spin-off when it was teased earlier in the year thanks to the revelation of play tests in Japan, but this expectation still didn't help fans avoid the feeling of crushing disappointment.
However, while a multiplayer spin-off is bad news for the majority who wanted more single-player survival horror action, the good news is that these naysayers and sceptics can sample a taste through a closed beta before completely dismissing the game's worth.
