Resident Evil Resistance, the asymmetrical multiplayer component of this year's Resident Evil 3 remake, has received a new update. It brings new cosmetics, new weapons, and much more with it.

What's new in this Resident Evil Resistance update?

First up, there are two new weapons to get to grips with. Both the Kashima and Rai-Den weapons can now be purchased from the Armory. In the case of the Kashima, you can buy it in all areas, but the Rai-Den is only available from the Armory in areas 2 and 3. You'll also find a whole bunch of new cosmetics available including new weapon skins, extra Survivor skins, and new sprays, among others.

The Nemesis Alpha - or Ne-α - is now available to spawn for Masterminds in Resident Evil Resistance.

A new creature has been added, too. The classically Resident Evil-named Ne-α - the Nemesis Alpha - can be spawned by the Mastermind using a new skill card. If you're the Mastermind in a game, you'll also find lots of new Skill Cards available to play with. These include a harmless decoy to trick Survivors, a flashbang mine, and a shock trap, plus lots of other cards to experiment with.

Are there any balance changes in this update?

There aren't any major adjustments to Resident Evil Resistance's balance or fundamental gameplay in this update. The Equipment Point limit has been increased for all characters, and Masterminds will now unlock all skill cards by rank 20. There are also new exclusive cards for individual Masterminds including Daniel, Alex, and Spencer. You can check out the full list of changes and additions to Resident Evil Resistance right here via the official update notes. Capcom also says that more significant balance changes will be coming in a later update, and some of those are included within the notes for this patch, so check 'em out if you're interested.

You can grab Resident Evil Resistance right now as part of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You will need to own the base single-player game to check out Resistance.
