You'll have to fend off monsters and get through obstacles if you play as one of the survivors, who each have a special skill. If you play as the Mastermind, you'll be able to lock the doors the survivors have to go through, place creatures in their midst, shoot them with gun-equipped cameras or even attack them by controlling zombies directly.
You can now sign up for a chance to take part in a closed beta test if you want to give the game a try and see if it's worth getting. The closed beta period begins on October 4th 3AM Eastern time and ends on October 7th 3AM. You'll have to be a Resident Evil Ambassador program member for the PS4 or an Xbox Insider Program member. If you get chosen to participate, you'll receive an email with instructions on September 30th, around 3AM Eastern.
