Resident Evil 6 Full Feature List Revealed; Crossover Allows For Four Players Online

Resident Evil 6’s Crossover mechanic allows for 4-player simultaneous co-op

We recently got our hands on Resident Evil 6‘s full feature list and oh boy does it make the game worth the wait!

Set 10 years after the events that destroyed Raccoon City, Resident Evil 6 will star a number of playable protagonists led by series stalwarts Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield. Joining them will be Jake Muller, the son of the infamous Albert Wesker. As in Resident Evil 5, each of the main characters will be joined by their own partners: US government agent Helena Harper, BSAA member Piers Nivans and returning Sherry Birkin (who was last seen with Leon and Claire in Resident Evil 2).

Each of the characters’ interwoven stories (playable in solo, co-op on and offline) will introduce the Crossover mechanic in which up to four players can join together online to tackle objectives. Imagine the teamwork gameplay mechanics of RE: Operation Raccoon City, and you get the idea.

Check out the full Resident Evil 6 feature list after the break.

Jake Muller – Son of Albert Wesker and Sherry Birkin: Daughter of Dr. William Birkin

Horror on a global scale – No longer confined to a specific location, the outbreak of the C-virus is worldwide with the action taking place  in North America, Eastern Europe and China.

Multiple characters and intertwined storylines – Experience the horror playing as Leon S. Kennedy, BSAA member Chris Redfield, and son of Albert Wesker, Jake Muller; with their respective partners US government agent Helena Harper, BSAA member Piers Nivans and Sherry Birkin.

Not only does each story cross paths, but so does the action – At significant points when the narrative draws pairs of characters together, the all new Crossover mechanic allows up to four players to experience the horror together online.

Solo or co-opResident Evil 6 delivers both single and two player co-op gameplay either offline or online.

A new challenge – Confront the results of the C-virus in all its varied and deadly forms:

  • Zombies make a return to the Resident Evil series, but can now run, jump at players and even use weapons, making them far more challenging than in previous games.
  • The enemy creatures known as J’avo first came to prominence in the conflict zone of Eastern Europe and have the ability to regenerate when injured; furthermore, if J’avo take substantial damage to a particular area they can mutate the affected body part into a variety of different forms, meaning players will have to rethink their strategy and adapt to this unpredictability.
  • The C-virus has also given rise to the Chrysalide, which take the mutation process even further as they undergo a full metamorphosis; spawning a whole host of horrific creatures.

Play your way – Upgrade your character to provide faster reload speed, improved firepower or increase your health bar with the Character Skill system.

Vehicle based actionResident Evil 6 will include gameplay sections featuring vehicles such as motorbikes, cars and snowmobiles.

Mercenaries returns – Players will once more be able to enjoy the highly popular Mercenaries Mode.

Redesigned control systemResident Evil 6 features an evolved control system allowing players to shoot while moving; slide; roll in any direction and to take cover along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack.

Localized voice overResident Evil 6 will include fully localized voice over in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian as well as subtitles in Japanese, Russian, Polish, Brazilian and Portuguese.
