Gamescon has been rich with updates and info this week. Here we have a trailer for new Resident Evil 6 character, Jake. The trailer takes place in a cabin out in the middle of a snowstorm as zombies, humans, and weird plant/zombie hybrids attack! I really don’t know what those creatures are, but they creeped me out and that’s the point of a Resident Evil game right?
Here’s a synopsis of what to expect form Capcom’s newest installment to the horror franchise. Resident Evil 6 is being unleashed October 2nd, 2012 with an Mature rating for gore, blood, and bath-salt zombie mayhem.
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.
Resident Evil 6 promises yet another dramatic, frightening experience blending action and survival horror. In a first for the franchise, RE 6 sees series favorites Leon and Chris come together to face this unprecedented threat. They are joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement, in this relentless outbreak enacted on a global scale.
Capcom says that this new Resident Evil is going to take the franchise in a new direction, and from what I’ve seen, I think it’s looking really good doing so.
