The E3 gaming expo takes place this week and Capcom was present during the Microsoft press conference earlier today. We have a look at the 5-minute gameplay walkthrough they presented and it gives us a good idea of what to expect from the finished game. **Updated: New RE6 trailer also included.
“Playable for the first time, E3 attendees will be able to see the true scope of Resident Evil 6 with a demo featuring three different missions and distinct gameplay experiences available in both single and co-op modes. Each mission is taken from one of the game’s separate stories with 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 in the E3 demo 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. Over the course of Resident Evil 6 players will experience how both the stories and the action of each protagonist and their partners cross and interweave ahead of the final climax in China.
Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of the year when it releases on October 2, 2012 for the Xbox 360 ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system with a Windows PC version to follow.”
