    Default New Resident Evil 6 Info


    Here are a few bits about Resident Evil 6 from this week's famitsu.

    - The game is 50% complete.

    - While they're aiming to bring back the feeling of horror with the game, this isn't an attempt to return the series back to it's origins.

    - They're aiming for the greatest volume in series history.

    - The game's third main character is meant to be someone young people can relate to.

    - The President shown in the trailer - the one who attacks Leon - is the president who followed Ashley's dad.

    - The zombies in the game did not become zombies due to the T-Virus.

    - They're aiming to make it a Resident Evil that is enjoyable to control, with a revamped control scheme. You'll be able to move slowly left and right while holding your gun, and perform such moves as 180 degree turn, quick front/back/side evade, covering and so forth.


    ***UPDATE***

    Capcom has released more info through their unity blog. They confirm that the game takes place in 2013 and that Chris' scenario takes place in Lanshiang, a fictional Chinese coastal town.

    More info about the characters and BOW's

    Leon S. Kennedy After the Raccoon City Incident, Leon was recruited into government service by one Adam Benford, who would go on to become the current in-game President of the United States. Helena Harper is one of the President’s personal bodyguards and admits to Leon she is responsible for the incident in Resident Evil 6. Ingrid Hunnigan is a field operations support specialist who has worked with Leon before.

    Chris Redfield, leader of the BSAA, faced personal trauma six months before the events in Resident Evil 6. He meets his team in China to investigate a bioterrorist attack. Chris, Leon, and a mysterious third protagonist are playable characters. The man with the shaven head is a mercenary engaged in a conflict in Eastern Europe where B.O.W.s are being used. Someone tells him he’s the man to save the world and instead of heroically stepping up to the plate he thinks about how much the job will pad his wallet.

    Zombies return in Resident Evil 6 and this time they’re smart enough to use weapons. Instead of staggering towards players they will run and jump at you. J’avo are a new B.O.W. found in Eastern Europe six months before the events in Resident Evil 6. These creatures still understand human speech and will work together with other J’avos as a group. J’avo can regenerate and if heavily damaged mutate body parts into different forms.

    Resident Evil 6 will have a new control scheme that lets players shoot while moving and take cover. You will be able to evade attacks by rolling or sliding in any direction and strike back with melee attacks.

    ***End of update***

    The only thing that can defeat power is more power. That is the one constant in this universe. However, there is no point in power if it consumes itself.

    Depends what they mean by 50% done, bug finding/fixing could be mainly what is left and that really does take a long time.

    So...instead of Zombies we have Ganados with a different skin (supposedly intelligent swarming monsters that use weapons and mutate and change when damaged? Yeah) and an even more action orientated controller set up.

    Oh well. The dream was nice while it lasted that Capcom could actually cope with installing some horror back into the main series AND try and get the Gears of Modern Battlefield players to try it...

    I think that the incident that traumatized Chris has something to do with "J’avo are a new B.O.W. found in Eastern Europe six months before the events in Resident Evil 6".

    Thank god it takes place after RE5, I was not enjoying the idea of playing three new RE games that all take place prior to it. Smart zombies that use weapons huh? AKA what every video game magazine on the planet called ganados and majini, at least this time they'll actually be zombies. I would still prefer the old standard dumb zombies but I guess fast zombies are trending these days. I wonder what Jill is up to? Maybe some folks on here had the right idea with her possibly hanging it up after all the trauma she went through in RE5, though I can't see Capcom not putting her some where in the game, especially after her most recent outing in Revelations.

    Also, I take it these these two men are one in the same? After hearing the news I decided to take a look and from what I can see, they look pretty damn similiar. Wish someone had a non-text version.

    aris13 : Yeah, the eastern european places we saw in the trailer is definitely a flashback. But the fact that Jill isn't on Chris' side makes me think that they are going to do that "Jill's dead" plot twist again.

    If Jill and Chris aren't still active partners after RE5 it tells me the events that happened to Jill have taken a toll on her in some way.

    The President in 2013 for sure wouldn't be Graham at this point so we can rule out Ashley. Regardless, until we learn more I suspect Blondie is now officially back on track for grown up Sherry as far as the fans are concerned.

    Does the "incident in Europe six months before" is related to the up coming Resident Evil: Damnation CGI film?

    It says it takes place in Europe, it envolves Leon and an unidentified man. It could be a tie-in or something.

    Damnation will probably be a prologue to RE6. No doubt about it.

    Sounds about right. I understand that these games will never be what they used to and I have come to terms with this that is fine. However putting these two lines next to each other makes me laugh.

    - While they're aiming to bring back the feeling of horror with the game, this isn't an attempt to return the series back to it's origins.

    - They're aiming for the greatest volume in series history.

    Lol um no. As bad as that line is I understand they have to big the game up but this next one makes me sick to the stomach.

    - The game's third main character is meant to be someone young people can relate to.

    What young people? You mean the kids who shouldnt even be playing the game? Takes the piss I got nothing against kids but everything is molding their company for kids. They have their own shit why do they have to steal our entertainment. The game is rated 18 yet we have to appeal to them. Whats next? Putting cartoon characters on condoms to 'appeal to the younger audience'. I already hate this mercs character because of that line, he is the John Cena of RE.
