Capcom has months of Resident Evil Resistance updates planned

April 09, 2020 1 min read

I can't help but wonder how long Capcom will support Resident Evil Resistance if most Resident Evil 3players just aren't feeling it. Less confined maps, more responsiveness, and an alternate objective or two could go a long way. The other night, I was scrolling through the (shockingly long and in-depth) trophy list and tried to imagine who will be out there playing this multiplayer pack-in past April.

Capcom posted a roadmap for Resident Evil Resistancetoday, and while it's light on specifics, the plan does indicate that there will be content updates until July 2020 at the very least. That's reassuring.

Resident Evil Resistance roadmap

Jill Valentine is up first as a new arrival on April 17, as previously announced, and Resistancewill get another character – hopefully Tyrell, or Nikolai as a mastermind – in May 2020. The June update is "under construction," which implies something more substantial than a roster addition, but we'll see.

Resistanceis disappointing as its own thing and as the "extra" for the main game, but the more I play Resident Evil 3, the more I dig it. The game holds up even better on harder difficulties. I'm about halfway through Inferno and it's nerve-wracking as hell, even with all of the ridiculous shop unlockables. I'd gladly pay for DLC focused on Carlos, Nikolai, or anything that gives us more story morsels, really.

As for Jill in Resistance, it's going to be a race to see who can select her first. She's the best.
