Umbrella Corps Features A “Multi Mission” Mode

Hey, you know that really good bit in Killzone 2 multiplayer where the game mode was rotated every few minutes, meaning you had to constantly change tactics and fighting style? Umbrella Corps, the forthcoming shooter set in in the Resident Evil universe, has got it as well.
“Multi-Mission” mode consists of rounds that cycle through 8 different rulesets at random, keeping you on your toes as the objectives change. The modes are as follows:

  • Target Hunter – One target will be chosen per team and only killing that target will count towards the score. Players can choose whether to focus on protecting their own target or aggressively attacking the enemy target.
  • Respawn Match – Team deathmatch featuring respawns. Take advantage of the on-screen sound radar map to locate the enemies’ random respawn points.
  • Domination – Secure the specified data transmission point located within the stage for a longer time than the enemy team in order to win.
  • DNA Hunter – Kill zombies and collect their DNA samples. Destroying the opposing team’s Zombie Jammers is a key strategy in this mode.
  • SP DNA Hunter – Kill the special mutated zombies and collect their DNA samples. They are particularly tough and immune to the effects of the Zombie Jammer. It’ll take teamwork to bring these creatures down.
  • Collector – Teams battle it out to see who will be first to collect all 5 briefcases in the stage.
  • Protector – Find the briefcase and hold it for as long as possible, while fending off the opposition. The player who has it will become a moving target, so teams must work together effectively.
  • Collar War – Collect the battle data “collars” of downed enemy players, and pick up allies’ collars to prevent the enemy team from getting points.

Umbrella Corps will be available digitally for $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 on PlayStation 4 and PC across North America and Europe in May 2016.

  1. More games should have modes like this. Warzone is awesome.

  2. Oh wow, i am so excited by this. This is seriously the best part of Resident Evil. Can’t you tell by the tone of my comment that i am super excited for this? *Monotone voice*

    Just no. Capcom, this will die within a year. It is not Resident Evil. Just a shoddy MP game and hmm, the last resident evil MP focused game also failed.

    People don’t want MP in resident evil. They want the series to go back to it’s root with modern gameplay. Admittly, the ol’ tank controls is dated but the camera angles, the atmosphere and the simple premsis of zombies need to return. Not Las Plagas on steroids, las plagas. Just the T-Virus and tyrants.

    • I agree its not very Resident Evil-y, but the series has always been known for spin offs. Remasters of previous RE games, as well as a remake of RE2 are all in development and you can guarantee RE7 is a thing too. As an RE fan, I’m feeling pretty good about the series at the moment.
