Capcom have released a new trailer for Resident Evil 6 and it looks pretty cool so far (though I would like some gameplay footage soon). The trailer includes a face off between Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, more information on the mysterious new playable character, who we now know is called Jake Mueller and I’m pretty sure gives us a good look at Ada Wong.
I’m really hoping they find a way to recapture the awesomeness of Resident Evil 4 and that this isn’t too much like the flawed (but enjoyable) Resident Evil 5.
Here’s some informaion that was released with the trailer:
Horror on a global scale – No longer confined to a specific location, the outbreak of the C-virus is worldwide with the action taking place in North America, Eastern Europe and China
Multiple characters and intertwined story lines – Experience the horror playing as Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Jake Muller with their respective partners
Solo or co-op – Resident Evil 6 delivers both single and co-op gameplay either offline or online
A new challenge – Confront the results of the C-virus in all its varied and deadly forms
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; furthermore, if J’avo take substantial damage to a particular area, they can mutate the affected body part into a variety of different forms, meaning players will have to rethink their strategy and adapt to this unpredictability
The C-virus has also given rise to the Chrysalide, which take the mutation process even further as they can undergo a full metamorphosis; spawning a whole host of horrific creatures
Mercenaries returns – Players will once more be able to enjoy the highly popular Mercenaries Mode
Redesigned control system – Resident Evil 6 features an evolved control system allowing players to shoot while moving; slide; roll in any direction and to take cover, along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack
Demo coming with Dragon’s Dogma – Purchasers of Dragon’s Dogma, scheduled for release on May 22 in North America and May 25 across Europe, will receive a token allowing them to download the Resident Evil 6 demo, from July 3 for Xbox 360 owners and September 4 for PS3
Localized voice over – Resident Evil 6 will include fully localized voice over in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian as well as subtitles in Japanese, Russian, Polish, Brazilian and Portuguese
