Resident Evil 6 was playable at the San Diego Comic-Con, but this wasn’t the same demo that was recently released on Xbox LIVE. Instead, Capcom brought demos from a new build of the game and fans will notice a number of changes from the previous version.
Via Destructoid: “We’ve heard a lot of feedback based on the demo we released… The team is still working hard to fine tune it. We understand the parts of the demo that came with Dragon’s Dogma that were not received favorably, to put it mildly. We wanted to make sure we could try to improve on these things — the camera angles, the tearing and other issues…
…This is the latest version of the game, and you can see how we’ve pulled the character out of the way now, so when you’re aiming you can still clearly see what you’re trying to shoot… We’re trying to improve upon it, and the team is working really hard to make sure we can reduce the level of stress people feel when playing. We want them to enjoy it, so we’re trying to push the game in the direction that the players want.”
We’ve included a couple of show floor videos below and it sounds like Capcom will continue to refine the game until it is released. Here is more information on Resident Evil 6 and our recent coverage links:
“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.”
