Resident Evil 6

If there is a franchise that we will have titles to fill us up with (some in the good sense of the word and others in the bad sense, because there has to be everything), it is ‘Resident Evil.’ Okay, you’re right, ‘Silent Hill’ also has a few titles planned for 2012, but now it’s time to talk about the Capcom saga.

One of the titles, ‘Resident Evil: Revelations,’ is already out on the streets for Nintendo 3DS. Another one on the way is ‘Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, which will go on sale in Europe on March 23 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Finally, we have a new installment of the regular series, which is this ‘Resident Evil 6’, of which we are going to see all the details that we know so far. We will expand this post as new relevant data about him emerge.

The plot of ‘Resident Evil 6.’

‘Resident Evil 6’ moves the action to ten years after the incidents that took place in Raccoon City, specifically to the moment in which the president of the United States has decided to reveal the whole truth about the entire matter to put a stop to it to what appears to be a resurgence of bioterrorist activity.

Plot of Resident Evil 6

Leon S. Kennedy, one of the saga’s old acquaintances, a Raccoon City survivor, and a personal friend of the president, is also present at the event. Unfortunately, a bioterrorist attack occurs during this event, and the president will end up being infected … Leon will have to finish him off? With his friend? With the president of the United States? This is how things are.

Meanwhile, Chris Redfield arrives in China, specifically in Hong Kong, where there is also a bioterrorist threat …

Goodbye to Survival Horror as the central axis. Hello to action, also in multiplayer

If taught us something, it ‘Resident Evil 5’ is that the step taken by the excellent ‘Resident Evil 4’ towards gameplay closer to what other action titles offer, leaving aside the component of Survival Horror pure and simple of the first installments, it was going to be the trend to be followed by Capcom in future installments, even if some users did not want to accept it. The figures speak for themselves .

Goodbye to Survival Horror as the main axis. Hello to action also in multiplayer

‘Resident Evil 6’, from what we have seen so far, comes with the desire to put it together in a big way. Radial action and the intention of catching up with other great genre titles thanks to the spectacular element. Something like mixing the universe of ‘Resident Evil’ with that rhythm that takes your breath away in the campaign ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3’, for example.

On the multiplayer, it seems that ‘Resident Evil 6’ will feature an offline split-screen mode for two players, an online competitive way for up to eight players, and a cooperative in which up to six players can participate.

The official trailer and release date

Capcom has confirmed that ‘Resident Evil 6’ will be released on October 2, 2012, for PS3 and Xbox 360. The PC version will arrive later, although the exact release date is unknown at the moment.
