The Resident Evil Resistance open beta has been postponed on PS4 and Steam due to server problems
Just as we were gearing up to dive into the multiplayer portion of Resident Evil 3 and were getting excited about the addition of Jill Valentine, it seems the secret labs of the Umbrella corporation have run into a hitch - for those of us on PS4 and Steam at least.
Earlier today, the official Resident Evil Twitter account posted an update acknowledging matchmaking issues for PS4 players. It seems the problem was more sever than anticipated, because the entire PS4 version of the beta, as well as the as-of-yet unreleased PC version have been put on hold indefinitely.
Capcom hasn’t listed when they expect the PS4 and PC betas to kick off again, but said that they are “working to resolve the issue” as quickly as possible, so we’re hoping it won’t be long. Fortunately for those of us on the greener side of life, the Xbox One version of the Resident Evil Resistance open beta remains unaffected, so you can keep partying up with your friends in an attempt to escape Umbrella’s clutches.
Due to technical issues, there is a delay for the RE Resistance Open Beta on PS4 and Steam. The XB1 version is unaffected and is available. We're working to resolve the issue as soon as we can and will keep you updated. Apologies for the inconvenience.— Resident Evil (@RE_Games) March 27, 2020
Resident Evil Resistance is a 1v4 multiplayer mode that’s a free addition to Resident Evil 3. In it, one player takes control of a fiendish Mastermind, placing bioweapons and traps to hinder a team of four Survivors, and even occasionally taking direct command of a powerful creature to assault the group. It’s releasing alongside Resident Evil 3, and you can find out more about the full list of confirmed Survivors and Masterminds by clicking here.
Resident Evil 3 is due to release on April 3, with the Resident Evil Resistance open beta running right up until launch. We’ll update you as soon as we know more about when the PS4 and PC versions of the beta will be available.
