Two new Masterminds are prepping for action.
Alex Wesker has been referenced in multiple games but served as the primary antagonist of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Like Albert Wesker, Alex was taken from her parents and placed into the Wesker eugenics project. Also like her ‘brother,’ Alex is batshit crazy.
“Alex’s play style puts an emphasis on using traps, while also manipulating the map to slow Survivors down with roadblocks and enhanced zombies,” Capcom said about the Mastermind. “As if these were not intimidating enough, when Alex gets really serious, she can call upon a vicious carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary bioweapon might not move, but in the right place it’s a powerful obstruction that keeps Survivors from their objective of escaping.”
Ozwell E. Spencer was one of the founders of Umbrella itself, and owner of the Spencer mansion that served as the centerpiece of the original Resident Evil. He’s featured in-game inside Resident Evil 5; there, Albert Wesker murders him before setting the stage to enslave Resident Evil 3‘s Jill Valentine.
“Ozwell uses the company’s cutting edge technology to torment Survivors,” Capcom said. “Unlike other Masterminds who summon controllable bioweapons (like Alex Wesker’s Yateveo, Annette Birkin’s G-Birkin and Daniel Fabron’s Tyrant), Ozwell instead generates a Disintegration Field that severely damages any Survivor who haplessly passes through it.”
Capcom has already confirmed that Resistance is non-canon, just in case you’re wondering how these two Masterminds — both (seemingly) dead — can take part.
Two new maps — Casino and Abandoned Park — were also confirmed today. Check out some shots from the maps below.
