Capcom has released a new trailer for Resident Evil 6.
What are you expecting me to say, watch it now!
A press release issued by Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 6 will feature three separate campaigns, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play: online or offline.
Floppy-haired Leon Kennedy is partnered with US government agent Helena Harper, whereas Chris ‘Punch-a-boulder’ Redfield teams up with fellow BSAA agent Piers Nivans. The mysterious third playable character has been revealed as Jake Muller, said to be the son of perennial Resi bad guy Wesker. He will work alongside Sherry Birkin, who you may remember from Resident Evil 2 as the daughter of former Umbrella scientists William and Annette Birkin.
As the trailer reveals, the teams will be working to stop the spread of the new C-Virus from creating ‘new and deadly transformations’. The virus also gives rise to what is known as the ‘Chrysalide’ which can metamorphose into a new threat. Zombies will return but also new are the J’avo, enemies that have the ability to regenerate when injured.
Finally, the release date has been pushed forward by a month for a 2nd October release. Result!
