The Tokyo Game Show took place last week and Capcom was showing off a new trailer for Resident Evil 6. Unless you attended the show, chances are that you haven’t seen the trailer, and we now have it for you to watch. The release of Resident Evil 6 is only one week away and will be available globally for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd with a PC version to follow.
“Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2012. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Ada Wong are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a new horror, the highly virulent C-virus, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang.
Starting with three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co-op play, both offline and online, not only will Resident Evil 6 deliver both different perspectives and gameplay styles but, with the introduction of the innovative Crossover mechanic players will be able to team up and share the horror. At key moments during the game, up to four players can join together online to tackle a specific situation, with some stages seeing the usual partnerships swapped to further increase the depth of gameplay.”
If you’re still on the fence about picking up the game, remember that a public demo was recently released over Xbox LIVE and the PlayStation Network. Catch up on our recent Resident Evil 6 coverage with the following articles:
