Resident Evil 6 Preview
On January 19, 2011 Capcom released a trailer for their upcoming game, Resident Evil 6.
The play style is like Resident Evil 5 and 4, but a bit different. Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy return as well as Ashley Graham, but this time around she will actually help and fight instead of just being in the way like in Resident Evil 4.
The trailer does reveal some things but has always there are many things still wrapped, i will do a in-dept trailer view at a later date, but for now i will just post what it’s there right now and some general news on the game.
It has been ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President’s side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world’s population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.
As i said before the game will play with an over the shoulder style camera, however it seems the gameplay will feature Move and Shot instead of TANK Controls, and Chris gameplay hint about new cover mechanics.
The player will get to play as different characters.
The ability to dual-wield certain weapons is being implemented by Capcom, as evident by Leon holding two handguns in the January announcement trailer, also the trailer hints about being able to use several CQC moves and Melee Weapons(like Axe, also seen in Leon’s footage). The dodge system from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis also returns, allowing the player to evade enemies attacks.
You can Play solo, split-screen or co-op online, although the multiplayer aspects of the game aren’t very clear at the moment, there is definitely a multiplayer option.
With a release date set to be on 20/11/2012 to be release for Ps3, Xbox 360 and PC.
In the mean time, we can play Resident evil Revelations and Resident Evil ORC. Coming out next month.
Let me know what you think about the game in the comments.
