Capcom have confirmed that their upcoming title Umbrella Corps, which is set in the Resident Evil universe, will release in May 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC.
The third-person shooter is a digital-only release that supports 1-6 player multiplayer across environments taken from existing Resident Evil games. The game will include various modes including ones “geared towards competitive team battles”, a single-player mode called “The Experiment” which offers 20+ missions to complete and a “coliseum-style horde-like mode” which looks great to play with friends!
The Village from Resident Evil 4 has been redesigned for multiplayer matches that escalate to the rooftops. The Tricell organization from Resident Evil 5 has a newly-imagined HQ ready and waiting for you to roam through. Players must not only face off against the rival mercenary team, but also the stage-specific threats such as the crazed Ganados (Resident Evil 4) and blood-thirsty Cerberus dogs (Resident Evil 5).
More information on additional maps and modes are still to come. We are hoping that an level from the upcoming Resident Evil 2 HD will be included to give us a taster of how it will feel. It would also be cool if something from Resident Evil 3 would appear in glossy HD. Not that we want much …
The game will be available in May 2016 for £30 on PlayStation 4 and PC. The release is digital only. Trailer Below:
