Resident Evil: Resistance Adds New Masterminds Alex Wesker and Ozwell Spencer

Two new masterminds, Alex Wesker and Ozwell E. Spencer are revealed to be added in Resident Evil: Resistance.

Though many players thought Resident Evil: Resistance to be a standalone title at start, it was revealed by developer/publisher Capcom as a replacement for Mercenaries mode of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Still months away from release, two new Masterminds are being added to its 1v4 asymmetric online survival horror experience lately. Joining Annette Birkin and Daniel Fabron are returning characters Alex Wesker and Ozwell Spencer.

Alex Wesker
Series fans can recognize Alex Wesker from Resident Evil: Revelations 2, who served as its main antagonist. Despite sharing last name with infamous Albert Wesker, these two has less in common and different ways of achieving goals.

Rather than approaching things directly, she would lay out plans for things to go as planned in the end. Often times, she would catch survivors off-guard by putting roadblocks on their way and then enhance nearby zombies.

Alex is a bit sadistic and likes to play with her prey by subjecting them to horrible experiments and psychological horrors. Therefore, she fits perfectly in role of a cunning Mastermind and her trump card is carnivorous plant Yateveo.

Yateveo is a deadly bio-weapon that takes slight inspiration from other plant-based enemies from Resident Evil series like Ivy and Plant 42. Though its position is fixed at one place, it can still cause great harm and thwart your objectives.

Ozwell Spencer
Umbrella Corporation was founded by Ozwell Spencer to fulfill his insidious dream of achieving immortality. Since he has always remained behind shadows throughout entire RE series, it is very fitting for him to become a Mastermind.

Before his appearance in Resident Evil 5, players have never seen him and his presence was very brief. Upon discovering of recent reports by Alex on a virus mutation, Ozwell has taken a more direct approach with his experiments.

Unlike Annette Birkin or Daniel Fabron, Spencer cannot summon mutated G-Birkin or mighty Tyrant Mr. X and even though he will not be controlling a bio-weapon to halt his subjects, his use of Disintegration Field will be severely damaging.

Its cooldown period is relatively shorter than other powerful bio-weapons and all of his creatures will still remain unaffected. Any plans laid out to delay survivors in escaping by father of Umbrella are designed to slowly wear them off.

Whereas Alex's playstyle will be largely focused on setting traps to try and stop any survivors from escaping her grasp, Ozwell would rely more on his company tech to slowly trap everyone and redirect them into his grand scheme.

Although settings and survivors of Project Resistance are from around Raccoon City, Capcom has confirmed its premise to be non-canon, which gave dev team freedom of bringing any series character back into play as a Mastermind.

Brand-new maps include an abandoned casino that is simply titled Casino and Abandoned Park nearing outskirts of town. During initial wave of an outbreak, these locations were quickly abandoned and swarmed with monsters.

Resident Evil: Resistance will let you play as one of these evil Masterminds or young survivors when it arrives on April 3, 2020 for Resident Evil 3 Remake for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms to serve as multiplayer component.

In opening shot of the trailer, three soldiers walk in to an airport terminal like area and one of them gets shot out of nowhere. His attacker finishes up with another bullet to the head and gets killed by remaining soldiers in return fire.

Viewers are then shown a larger location resembling to Terminal map from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. There are ongoing firefights throughout entire area being covered in green gas and four soldiers in parachute jumps down a plane.

This minute-long teaser could very much likely to be an early sneak peek in battle royale for CoD: MW. Aside from a huge ruined airport map to explore and fight, there will probably be a new gameplay system for three-player squad.

Following launch of MW Season 2, a known Call of Duty YouTuber has noticed some change made to in-game main menu. In addition to its regular four options, there is a newly added "Classified" section that you can't click on.

Though this latest change is not a direct hint at anything exact but it clearly leaves room to add one in future. According to a now-deleted key-art on Reddit, battle royale mode for Modern Warfare will be called "Call of Duty: Warzone".

Activision and Infinity Ward has yet to confirm or deny validity of these theories players came up with but if all of these speculations eventually turn out to be true, then developers did right by extending Season 1 longer than expected.

Season 2 update for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is currently live on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Given all recent hints from dev team and various leaks, an announcement for battle royale mode may come before Season 3 goes live.
