More Resident Evil Resistance content coming over next few months

Capcom is planning more content for Resident Evil Resistance, the asymmetrical multiplayer game bundled with the Resident Evil 3 remake, beyond the addition of Jill Valentine as a playable character.

In Resident Evil Resistance, four players take on the role of survivors, who must work together to overcome the zombie-infested scenario they find themselves in that is controlled by a fifth player, known as the mastermind. The survivors will need to defeat the zombies and escape, while the mastermind watches through security cameras and sets traps.

Capcom previously announced that Jill, the protagonist of Resident Evil 3, will be added as a survivor to Resident Evil Resistance. However, it looks like there is much more planned for the multiplayer game.

After Jill is added to Resident Evil Resistance on April 17, another character will be introduced in May, though it is currently unknown whether it will be another survivor or a new mastermind. An “under construction” banner for the planned June update suggests something bigger than a new character.

The possibilities for new content for Resident Evil Resistance, in addition to survivors and masterminds, include maps, weapons for the survivors, and traps for the mastermind. As to what Capcom is specifically planning, however, we will have to wait and see.

Capcom is also promising more updates from July onwards, and while only time will tell how long the new content will keep arriving to Resident Evil Resistance, it seems that for now, the studio is geared towards supporting the multiplayer game for foreseeable future.

Resident Evil 3 remake

The Resident Evil 3 remake was jokingly announced as the campaign mode for Resident Evil Resistance, which was initially thought to be a standalone game. Both games were released as a bundle on April 3.

The game is “uncomfortable but exhilarating,” as players help Jill survive against Nemesis and hordes of zombies. The upgraded visuals, excellent music, and suspenseful gameplay all come together to offer a unique experience, while capturing the feeling of the original Resident Evil 3 at the same time.

The Resident Evil 3 remake, however, may easily be finished in under 10 hours, at which point players will likely take a look at Resident Evil Resistance.

All Resident Evil 4 remake Wayshrines and how to open them
An open wayshrine with a bracelet inside.

In the opening chapters of the Resident Evil 4 remake, you will come across strange shrines erected by a cult. These can be interacted with, but prompt you to use an item. Unfortunately, you won't even have the chance to open the first couple you find since the item required to open them can't be picked up until a bit later -- and only if you know where to search for it. But it's ro say that the treasures you get from them make it worth your time to backtrack and grab all the goodies inside. Here's how you can open all the Wayshrines in the Resident Evil 4 remake, and what each one holds inside.
How to get the Wayshrine Key

Surprise surprise, but Wayshrines can only be opened once you grab the Wayshrine Key. It will feel like a long time, but you can't even access the key until you reach Chapter 4 and beat Del Lago. Once you can explore the lake, head south to the Mural Cave. Deep in the caves, you will find an ornate cabinet after solving the puzzle in the cave. You can get there by going down the path from the southern dock and through the section with the two large stone hands. Thankfully, unlike Small Keys, the Wayshrine Key is reusable and can open every Wayshrine in the game.

Is Resident Evil 4’s Leon S. Kennedy Italian? An investigation
resident Evil 4's Leon S Kennedy has a moustache,

Whenever a new Resident Evil game comes out -- remake or otherwise -- I always like to go down a lore rabbit hole. The Resident Evil series has a wildly vast narrative that isn’t just contained in its main installments. Obscure spinoffs, CGI movies, bonus features bundled with games … there's so much rich history to dig into, and die-hard series fans have thoroughly cataloged every piece of it through exhaustively detailed fan wikis.

After I finished Capcom’s excellent Resident Evil 4 remake, I was curious to build out my knowledge of its hero, the iconic Leon S. Kennedy. I’d learned more about his backstory than I’d ever known, including how he was blackmailed into becoming a government agent in Wii spinoff Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles. While there were a lot of fascinating surprises to be found, the very first line of Leon’s fan-maintained Resident Evil wiki page threw me for a loop.

How to solve the Castle Sword puzzle in Resident Evil 4 remake
Leon looking at murals of a knight.

The castle section of the Resident Evil 4 remake is one of the most diabolical. Aside from being visually distinct from the previous village area, this location is full of tougher enemies and deadlier traps. Once you've managed to escape from the dungeons and up into the castle proper, you will be blocked by a gate beside some images of a knight in different situations. Something is off about all of them, and one part missing entirely. This is the sword puzzle, but it isn't as straightforward as you might assume looking at it. Here's how to solve the Sword Puzzle and make your way into the Audience Chamber in Resident Evil 4.
How to solve the Castle Sword puzzle

The first thing you'll notice about this puzzle is that there are four murals of the knight, but only three swords to pick up in this room. The last sword is behind another locked gate, but this one you can open. The gate has three animals on it, an eagle, deer, and snake, which correspond to three different plates. As each one is activated, the symbols on the gate will light up to show you're on the right track. The deer can be activated by pulling the chain beside the gate, while the second two are on the other side of the gate to the right and need to be shot.
