Resident Evil 6 Aims to Impress with New Screens and Trailers
Last week, Resident Evil 6 producer Capcom revealed more interesting news about the single player campaign and the unique multiplayer for October’s game.
First of all, Ada Wong will get her own campaign in Resident Evil 6 as a single-player experience. Ada’s campaign features unique missions and offers her perspective on the bioterror attacks that threaten to wipe out humanity. However, Ada’s campaign will not be available immediately. Like other Resident Evil games, players have to finish the initial campaigns featuring Leon, Chris and Jake in order to open this fourth story.
More exciting than that, the online mode features more than the initially announced co-campaign multiplayer play. Previously, players were excited to know that a friend could play as one of the three main characters’ partners, and during the crossover missions, 2 new players online could join the action for 4-player cooperative play.
Now, Capcom announces the new Agent Hunt mode, where an online player fills the shoes of the J’avo or other zombies to hunt the characters. Whatever the zombies can do, the player can copy as he tries to stop the players.
Like Ada Wong’s mission, players must finish the three main campaigns in order to unlock Agent Hunt. During campaign play, players can choose to allow the Agent Hunt mode. Hunters will get to see what online sessions will allow this mode and join any of the sessions from around the world. Up to 2 Hunters can join a campaign, but not all stages allow Hunters.
If the Hunter can eliminate the human players, a “Hunt Successful” screen appears, and the Hunter can search for a new session. However, if the Hunter leaves in the middle of a session, the campaign players will be able to continue play.
My only concern for this mode is the Hunter drop out. If a player drops out during a particularly heated battle, how will the computer respond? Will this offer free attacks for the campaign players while the computer decides that the Hunter has left? Or, will all players have to wait for the game to respond before continuing the fight?
We’ll find out on Oct 2 when Resident Evil 6 hits the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and later on the PC.
