Earlier this week it was revealed that there would be an Ada Wong single player campaign in Resident Evil 6, along with a new Agent Mode that lets you play as creatures from the game. As expected, it has now been officially announced by Capcom. We have all new details on both announcements, plus official gameplay footage.
Ada Wong:It is now confirmed that femme fatale and fan favourite, Ada Wong will be a playable character with her own individual campaign in Resident Evil 6. Accessible from the main game menu once players have completed all three of the campaigns for Leon, Chris and Jake; Ada’s campaign features unique missions and will provide her perspective on the bioterrorist outbreaks that threaten to wipe out the world’s population.
Always a solo operative, Ada will not have a co‐op partner but her campaign will still feature key story and action cross over moments, when she is joined by the game’s other playable characters.
Agent Hunt Mode: In this all new online mode for the Resident Evil series, experience the action from the other side. As a “hunter”, join the enemy side to become one of the game’s zombies, J’avo or other C‐virus mutations and infiltrate another active game session to eliminate the human characters. As a hunter, players will have access to the unique movements and attacks of each of the enemies including those of the various J’avo transformations. So how does Agent Hunt Mode work?
Complete the main campaigns for either Leon, Chris or Jake to then unlock the Agent Hunt stages for each of those respective campaigns
When creating an RE6 gameplay session a player has the option to allow/not allow Agent Hunt
When a hunter searches for a session to join they will see whether or not other players from around the world want to allow hunters into their game
The hunter then picks another player’s session to join and jumps into that session *Please note only certain stages will be available for Agent Hunt sessions
The agent side can be either a single human player with an AI partner, or two human players in co‐op mode. Up to two separate hunters can join an Agent Hunt session. When a hunter dies they respawn in the same session as a different random enemy from that area
If the hunter eliminates the agent then they will be taken to a ‘hunt successful’ results screen where they can join another session if they wish
If the agent is eliminated then their game session will end exactly as if they had been playing a standard game session with CPU enemies
If the hunter quits the session then the agent’s game continues as normal with all AI enemies
Synopsis: "Experience bioterrorism on a global scale and get a taste for the scope of this latest and most expansive title in the Resident Evil series to date as the action moves from North America to Europe and China. This demo features three different missions and distinct gameplay experiences as each mission is taken from one of the full game’s three separate campaigns which features a different protagonist as the lead.
Play as Leon S. Kennedy alongside Helena Harper and explore the dark confines of the Ivy University campus and the zombies that fill its hallways. Select Chris Redfield’s mission and head to China for an intense encounter against the deadly J’avo with BSAA colleague Piers Nivans on the rooftops of Lanshiang. The third mission shifts the action to the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and sees Jake Muller and Sherry Berkin trying to escape the relentless pursuit of the Ustanak, one of the new B.O.W.’s being introduced in Resident Evil 6.
Resident Evil 6 will be available globally on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from October 2nd 2012 with a PC version to follow."
