New Resident Evil 6 Details Confirmed; New Screenshots Included

May 9, 2012

News

Resident Evil 6 is set for release on October 2nd, 2012 and we couldn’t be more excited to get our hands on the title. We’ve got some new info and screenshots to keep you up to date with the latest in Capcom’s highly anticipated installment.

– The C-Virus will be the new ultimate “bio-weapon” in this title.

– Zombies will now wield axes, pipes and guns. If properly disarmed, these can be used against them.

– Zombies can now dash, jump and climb.

– Players can move and shoot, run into cover and dive onto the ground and fire while on their backs.

– All new Mercenaries Mode is available Day 1 for everybody, no DLC stipulations.

– Mercenaries Mode will be Capcom’s boldest, most expansive mode yet

– A tramatic event occurs in Chris Redfield’s life during his mission in Lianshang, China. This completely changes his personality to a more cryptic and pessimistic Chris Redfield.

– Ada Wong is somehow responsible for the Tragic event in China, which sets Chris on a rampage after her.

– Wesker’s son’s name is Jake Muller, who is a mercenary fighting in Europe with the goal of earning cash for him and his mother.

– Jake is immune to the current viral outbreak and is contacted by Sherry Birkin in attempt to convince him to help save the world from the recent catastrophe.

– There are 3 seperate campaigns combined in one story, all taking place across the globe: Sherry and Jake, Leon, and Chris.

– Leon’s first mission, taking place in a University, will be a throwback to the original RE games in which horror and atmospheric tension are the key elements in place.

    Here’s hoping it’s much better than part 5. That game was atrocious.

      I agree. As a matter of fact, CAPCOM has knocked out quite a lot of trash. RE 4 was good, it was something different, then it just went down hill again. The RE Outbreak games didn’t do the series any favours either. The latest games are just too static with the same old.

      My god this sounds terrible. Zombies with guns? Just call it a shooter and get it over with.

    Inspite of how action oriented the game is, I am really excited for it. I hope, it’s better than RE5, though.

    None of that is new information. It’s been known for well over a month.

    “Zombies will now wield axes, pipes and guns. If properly disarmed, these can be used aganist them.”

    “Zombies can now dash, jump and climb”

    I hate how they are trying to call them Zombies to make people think that they have listened to complaints and brought back Zombies like the “good old days” when really they havent. These things arn’t Zombies so I don’t see why they are tyring to trick people into thinking that they are. They’re basicaly an improved Las Plagas, I’m guessing the Master Plagas Sample Wesker took from Ada (need to see how he got it from her) has been fused with the T-Virus.

    It’s sad because people are actualy falling for this

    “Players can move and shoot, run into cover and dive onto the ground and fire while on their backs.”

    Funny I remember an article not to long ago saying they are moving away from Action…pfffft yeah ok Capcom.

    “All new Mercenaries Mode is available Day 1 for everybody, no DLC stipulations”

    I hope to god they will FINALLY add differen’t modes to this. I can’t be the only one who wants a no Time Limit mode, I want to see how long I can last without getting those stupid clocks. They could add challenge modes aswell…”Kill 20 enemies with a Shotgun” “Disarm 10 enemies” “Don’t kill any enemies for 5 minutes”

    “A tramatic event occurs in Chris Redfield’s life during his mission in Lianshang, China. This completely changes his personality to a more cryptic and pessimistic Chris Redfield”

    and yet his best friend, long term partner and maybe even a love interest Jill, the one who should be supporting him is no where to be seen and has been replaced by a no name character we’ll probably not care about, just like Sheva, Jessica, Parker or any other character who they try and introduce instead of adding old fan favorites who havent been heard from for years…cough cough Barry/Rebbeca/Billy/Claire. Come on Capcom you do this to Chris and Jill isn’t there to support him. Will we ever see a RE game where they are both together for the full game.

    You would think because Bioterrorism has become such a big thing in RE that the surviving STARS members would all be involved in the BSAA and be with Chris on his mission. I know it would seem oer crowed but thats the point I;m trying to make get rid of the characters we won’t care about and the add the ones we do care for. I want to know more about Barry Burton and Rebbeca, what have they been up to during RE4/5.

    “Ada Wong is somehow responsible for the Tragic event in China, which sets Chris on a rampage after her.”

    This is what relaly bugs me…why would she do this, this isn’t Adas style. She’s not a cold hearted killer, she only kills the people the Organization tells her to. It’s why she’s saved Leon in the past when she was working for Wesker and wouldn’t kill him. This Ada has to be a clone or someone else completely. Maybe Wesker did something to her when he went after the Master Plagas sample when she betrayed him.

    I musn’t be the only one who feels this way about Ada

    Anyway I have low expectations for this, it just seems like they never took anything into account with all the complaints from RE5. I mean co-op is still in this, that says it all really.
