Resident Evil 6 has officially been revealed by Capcom. Another tale of bio-terror, ghoulish monsters and (by the looks of the trailer) hammy B-movie acting, it follows the exploits of series favourites Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy.
The first trailer for the game, released alongside the announcement, seems to suggest the game will follow the same action-orientated approach that has characterised the series since Resident Evil 4 was released, and will feature both single player and co-operative modes.
The story line, according to Capcom, is as follows:
“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.”
Due out on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 20th 2012 (with a PC version to follow shortly), you can watch the official announcement trailer by clicking the video above.
