Resident Evil Resistance Nikolai

Resident Evil 3 antagonist, Nicholai Ginovaef, will be added to Resident Evil: Resistance in May 2020 as a Mastermind. Originally teased via the official Resident Evil Twitter, his addition has been confirmed. Little else has been mentioned regarding what unique skills or capabilities Nikolai will have in comparison to the other Masterminds. His abilities and signature B.O.W. will be revealed in a future update. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

Other antagonists from the Resident Evil franchise have been added as Masterminds to Resident Evil Resistance. Alex Wesker, from Resident Evil Revelations 2, and Oswell E. Spencer have since been added to the roster. Each of these Masterminds came with their own unique map and signature B.O.W.s.

As part of the most recent free update to Resistance, Jill Valentine has been added to the roster of Survivors. Similar to her skill in Resident Evil 3 Remake, Jill comes equipped with her handy dodge. She also has a special skill that increases her damage, knock back power, and accuracy when using her Samurai Edge.

Resistance is an all new asymmetrical multiplayer mode packaged with Resident Evil 3 Remake. In it, players can either take the role of the Survivor or Mastermind. Those who choose the role of the Survivor will be tasked with completing objective to escape the map. Masterminds, on the other hand, need to stop the players from escaping and can utilize special zombies and other enemies from the Resident Evil series to hinder the progress of the Survivors.

Resident Evil 3 is available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and Resident Evil Resistance comes with it.
