Resident Evil 6: Character Art and 21 Screenshots

Following today's new trailer and release date announcement, Capcom has released additional game details, character art, and 21 screenshots.

"Blending action and survival horror, Resident Evil 6 promises to be the dramatic horror experience of 2012. Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield are joined by new characters, including Jake Muller, to face a bioterrorist threat on a global scale, as the narrative moves between North America, the war-torn Eastern European state of Edonia and the Chinese city of Lanshiang."

PairingsResident Evil 6 features three distinct, yet interwoven story threads, each with their own pair of protagonists for either solo or co‐op play, both offline and online.

  • Leon S. Kennedy is paired with US government agent Helena Harper.
  • Chris Redfield teams up with fellow BSAA member Piers Nivans.
  • The previously mysterious mercenary has now been revealed as Jake Muller, son of the infamous Albert
  • Wesker. Jake is joined by Sherry Birkin, the daughter of former key Umbrella scientists, William and Annette.

A New Threat: RE6 introduces the highly virulent C‐virus that has been unleashed on an unsuspecting and unprepared world, creating new and deadly transformations.

  • Zombies make a return to the Resident Evil series, but can now run, jump at players and even use weapons, making them far more challenging than in previous games.
  • The enemy creatures known as J’avo first came to prominence in the conflict zone of Eastern Europe and have the ability to regenerate when injured.
  • The C‐virus also gives rise to the Chrysalide, where a full metamorphosis occurs, spawning a whole host of horrific creatures.

Resident Evil 6 will be available on October 2nd for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will be released at a later date. To watch the new trailer and for more game information, visit: http://dailydead.com/resident-evil-6-new-trailer-and-earlier-release-date/
