Resident Evil 6 is the eighth mainline entry--when including Code: Veronica & Zero--in the popular Resident Evil series, announced by Capcom on January 19th, 2012 and released at October 2nd, 2012. Set in 2013, four years after Resident Evil 5 (and 10 years since the downfall of Umbrella), Resident Evil 6 brings back the two most prominent leads Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy to canonically star together for the first time in Resident Evil history.
Shying away from a linear progression like the most recent Resident Evil titles, Resident Evil 6 allows players to select from any of the three available campaign stories--Leon, Chris and the new character Jake Muller--in whichever order they so choose, somewhat reminiscent of the first two Resident Evil games. Despite this freedom of choice, it was suggested by RE6 director Eiichiro Sasaki that Leon's story be tackled first.
Overview & Controls
Resident Evil 6 is an action-shooter in the same vein as prior entries, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, though it features a "totally new control scheme" allowing much more manoeuvrability. This includes the ability to now move and shoot similar to the 3DS Resident Evil games, Mercenaries 3D and Revelations, and a full 360 movement scheme. Characters can now utilise a roll ability to help dodge incoming attacks and also now for the first time are able to quickly dive into prone and fire their weapon. RE6 sees the return of cover mechanics along with the newly introduced ability to sprint. While sprinting, the character will automatically vault over obstacles and jump across ledges without any additional player input. Because of the added ability to sprint, characters now run automatically by pushing on the analogue stick all the way; pressing it gently will have the character walk instead. The player's camera view has also been expanded, now allowing a full 360 degree perspective rather than being restricted to as far as the character's neck can turn.
Additional customization options have been afforded for players within the options menu, allowing players to now freely switch between aiming from the right side or left, to whether or not their weapons will reload automatically, to choosing between the new cross-hair or the classic laser sight for aiming their weapons, to then even choosing from a small selection of colors for said laser sight.
Melee & Quick Shot
Melee combat has been heavily streamlined and can be utilised at any time--rather than requiring specific context-sensitive button prompts--which will allow the player to string together a few simple combos using the RT/R2 button. Players may attack with a dive should they be in the middle of a sprint, and breakable boxes no longer require a knife and can instead be automatically destroyed with a regular melee attack. To compensate, characters have a stamina gauge that slowly depletes (but will recharge) after each melee attack; when timed correctly just before an enemy melee attack, the player can do a powerful counter attack. The gauge is used up when players make use of the 'Quick Shot' ability, which allows the player to swiftly fire off a few firearm rounds complete with auto-aim.
Along with the overall control scheme, the inventory system has also been given a complete overhaul, now designed as two separate menus for supplies and weapons - both of which the player must scroll through horizontally. The player may now move while perusing their inventory, though they control their inventory navigation with the right analogue stick temporarily removing control of the in-game camera. The player switches between the two menus using the RB/R1 button by default for the 360 and PS3 respectively. Health items can now be used with just a single button press as well. For a more convenient approach, the alternative is to use the directional buttons (left/right for weapons, up/down for supplies) to scroll. Items cannot be combined within this menu, however.
Herbs & First Aid Sprays
Herbs can once again be combined, but this time must be converted into 'tablets', which will allow players to heal themselves with just the press of a button rather than having to first select it out of their inventory; players can also tab the button consecutively to use multiple tablets at once. First Aid sprays, however, still must be equipped to use. There exist no blue nor yellow herbs this time around and only green and red can be found and combined; red herbs still have no effect when used on their own.
A list of the herb to tablet conversion is as follows:
- Green Herb + Green Herb = Three tablets.
- Green Herb + Green Herb + Green Herb = Six tablets.
- Green Herb + Red Herb = Six tablets.
Should a player take enough damage, they will enter into a 'dying state. Here, the player can only crawl, but can also pull up their weapon and attempt to defend themselves. Unlike RE5, however, the player will eventually bring themselves back off the ground once enough time has passed without the player getting attacked; the player's partner character can also still revive the player as well to speed up the process. The player is still within the 'dying' state during this stage and must heal themselves, otherwise a single attack will kill them outright.
Unlike Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, players cannot buy weapons. Instead players will find all of each respective campaign's weaponry as the story dictates it, and certain weapons are exclusive across specific campaigns and even characters. Weapons cannot be upgraded either, and now players may purchase ''Skills'' and can equip three at a time. Players can create up to eight different combinations at once and then choose to switch between their configurations mid-game Most, but not all, Skills such as Piercing or Defense can be upgraded after they've been bought for an additional price, increasing their overall effectiveness.
A list of the Skills are as follows:
- Firearm - Increases firearm power.
- Melee - Increases power during melee attacks.
- Defense - Reduces damage received.
- Lock-On - Steadies hand when shooting.
- Rock Steady - Reduces recoil after shooting.
- Critical Hit - Increases the chances of scoring a critical hit.
- Piercing - Increases firearm piercing potential.
- J'avo Killer - Increases strength of attacks on a J'avo.
- Zombie Hunter - Increases strength of attacks on a zombie.
- Eagle Eye - Adds an extra level of magnification to sniper rifle scopes (cannot be upgraded).
- Quick Reload - Lessens the time required to reload weapons (cannot be upgraded).
- Last Shot - Increases the strength of a players remaining shot.
- Shooting Wild - Removes the player's targeting sight, but increases firepower.
- Combat Gauge Boost - Increases the player's Combat Gauge by 3 blocks.
- Breakout - Allows the player to break free more easily from an enemy's grasp.
- Item Drop Increase - Causes more defeated enemies to drop items.
- Recovery - Speeds up recovery when dying.
- Team-Up - Strengthens a player's partner's attacks when they are near each other (Cannot be upgraded; Single player only).
- Field-Medic - Allows the player's partner to give them health tablets when they're revived (Cannot be upgraded; Single player only).
- Lone Wolf - Keeps the player's partner from helping them when they're in trouble (Cannot be upgraded; Single player only).
- AR Ammo Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased amount of 5.56 NATO ammo.
- Shotgun Shell Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased amount of 10 and 12 gauge shotgun shells.
- Magnum Ammo Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased amount of .50 Action-Express and .500 S&W Magnum ammo.
- Rifle Ammo Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased amount of 7.62 NATO and 12.7mm ammo.
- Grenade Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased number of 40mm explosive, acid, and nitrogen rounds.
- Arrow Pickup Increase - Allows players to pick up an increased number of normal and pipe bomb arrows.
Cooperative play is once again featured within the game, with each of the three storylines starring two main characters. Leon has Helena Harper at his side, Chris is teamed with BSAA marksman Piers Nivans, and Jake Muller is paired with Sherry Birkin. Matchmaking has been introduced to allow a more accessible venue for cooperative play, including drop-in drop-out capability. When played solo, players can now select which of the two main characters to star as, rather than having to complete the campaign first to unlock the secondary character. Like in RE5, the other character is taken control by an AI should it be a solo game. Though this time around there is no inventory management between the two characters, and the AI is invincible with infinite ammo.
With each of the three stories primarily happening concurrently, this eventually allows certain characters to coincide with one another introducing the concept of 4-player cooperative play in Resident Evil 6. As long as the player(s) is online, once they reach a point in one of the stories (eg. Leon & Helena) where the cast will meet up with two from another story (eg. Jake and Sherry), the player is given the option to search online for any other player(s) who is currently at the same spot with the other characters. From there, the quadruple can then temporarily play together to fight against a specific story-dictated boss battle. Otherwise the player(s) can opt to fight alongside two temporary friendly AI's instead.
Quick Time Events
QTEs once again return, though they are now much more prevalent overall than previous games in the series. They are still most commonly encountered should a player be grabbed by an enemy or in the case of bosses to sometimes avoid an attack entirely. Though unlike in Resident Evil 5 for example, some enemies will require the player to complete multi-tiered QTEs in a row, such as wiggling the stick and then having to time a button press afterwards to throw the enemy off.
They are also encountered during specific cutscenes, where the player must press the on-screen prompts as they appear otherwise they will die. Sometimes players may also have to rapidly tap a single button as well, usually as a means to further illustrate a scene depicting a struggle for example. Not only do they occur during cutscenes, but even during in-game events as well. This includes a QTE involving the player dodging an incoming train, to one that has players climbing up a long string of rope by alternating between R2/RT and L2/LT at a specific pace.
If playing cooperatively, cutscene QTEs are divided between players depending on which character is doing the action on-screen. Though there are still some that require both players to press the prompts simultaneously.
Via an online patch, a setting was added so as to make cutscene QTEs automated with no fail state. However in-game QTEs will still persist.
Like past Resident Evil games, Resident Evil 6 allows players to go through any of the completed campaigns with all the weapons they've found and as much ammo and healing supplies as how they left it. When playing through the already completed campaign with the alternate character, however, the player will begin with that character's default equipment only and will have to collect the campaign's set of weapons again. Though even when heading again with the same character as they completed the game with, the game will also give players the option to play through again with the character's default equipment should they so desire.
After surviving Raccoon City and saving the President's daughter, Leon isn't ready to retire just yet. In fact he now must go back into the heart of the nightmare as his employer and the man he believes in most, the President of the United States, has turned into a zombie and another American City is overrun with infected.
Helena is a relatively new addition to the United State's Secret Service. Unlike most of the other Resident Evil 6 protagonists, Helena hasn't had much experience battling B.O.W.s. Trying to get to grips with the nightmarish situation she's found herself in, she ropes in Leon S. Kennedy to help her save her sister, Deborah Harper.
Chris still with the B.S.A.A. works alongside B.S.A.A. marksman Piers Nivans amidst their excursion in China to uncover the plot revolving around the latest strand of B.O.W. virus, the C-Virus.
A BSAA sniper, Piers is an up and coming soldier within the unit who has been serving with Chris for a long while. As the very man who manages to bring Chris back into the B.S.A.A, after suffering Post-Traumatic Amnesia, Piers will try his best to both battle the J'avo and save Chris from his own downfall.
An all new character, Jake Muller is the third protagonist of Resident Evil 6, who is directly related to previous series antagonist Albert Wesker.
The daughter of deceased Umbrella scientists, William Birkin and Annette Birkin, Sherry finally returns into the fold with Resident Evil 6 working alongside Jake Muller.
The mysterious and often illusive Ada Wong also makes her timely return. Attempting to capture Jake Muller because of his natural immunity to reanimation viruses, Ada will come into conflict with both Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy as her true motives are finally revealed.
Presidential aide and friend to Adam Benford, Derek is soon revealed to be the culprit behind the Tall Oaks C-Virus outbreak and as such the death of the President. Strongly believing in his own vision of 'World stability', Derek's methods for sculpting the world as he sees fit is often at the expense of innocent human life.
Exclusive to only Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy, they're both equipped with a knife from the outset as a reference to their experience across the franchise. Leon's is the Survival Knife whereas Chris is given the Combat, though besides some cosmetic differences they function the exact same. The name difference is implied to signify the style and tone of both character's respective campaign they're both assigned to, with Leon's slower-paced more horror-orientated atmosphere, and Chris' much more action-focussed military aesthetic.
The Knives are slow and not exceptionally powerful, though when used with the Quick Draw ability, the character will do a quick few swipes. Executions on downed enemies are also more powerful with the knife equipped.
Sherry Birkin's own exclusive melee weapon, the Stun Rod can do minor electrical damage to her foes, and can also be charged up to discharge a significantly more powerful current - one that can even spread across multiple enemies.
Jake Muller, while can still do regular melee attacks, also has available his own additional set of melee attacks tied to his 'Hand-to-Hand' weapon. Using the regular attack buttons, Jake can perform a few simple combos, including a flurry of acrobatic attacks should the player continually use the Quick Draw ability. However, using Hand-to-Hand will still deplete the player's stamina gauge.
A semi-automatic pistol and one that is exclusive to Leon S. Kennedy, the Wing Shooter has an alternate firing mode where Leon will equip another and duel wield the two for more damage output, but less accuracy.
Helena Harper's own semi-automatic pistol, it is slightly more powerful than the others but has no alternate firing mode. While Helena is the only playable character across the story to have it available, in The Mercenaries mode Carla Radames also has it as apart of her inventory and is shown with it equipped during the flashback in Edonia during Chris Redfield's campaign.
Standard military sidearm whom both Jake Muller and Chris Redfield have available, the Nine-Oh-Nine is the weakest of all the handguns and has no alternate fire, either.
This is Sherry Birkin's exclusive pistol and like the name applies can fire in bursts of three. Though there is also an alternate single-shot mode where it'll fire like a regular pistol instead.
Standard pump-action shotgun available across both Leon's and Jake's campaigns.
Returning from Resident Evil 5 is the Hydra sawn-off shotgun. However, this time around it is only available for Helena and is made available from the outset. Loaded with up to three shots, the Hydra is able to unload all three of its shells as fast as the player can press the firing button. When used with Quick Shot, Helena may also sometimes do a kind of stunt roll and shoot from that position.
Similar in power to the regular Shotgun, the Assault Shotgun is semi-auto and can hold more rounds. This variety of shotgun is available across Chris Redfield and Ada Wong's campaigns.
For Ada's hands only, the Ruger SMG is shot from the hip and has a high fire-rate, though little damage output.
Starting SMG for Piers Nivans, the MP-AF is almost as accurate as an assault rifle and just as powerful. It has two firing modes available: full auto and single-shot.
Assault Rifle for Special Tactics
Chris Redfield's starting assault rifle and his primary weapon. Accurate, though it's the weakest assault rifle in the game and takes a relatively long time to reload as well.
Available across Jake Muller and Ada Wong's campaign, the Bear Commander is the most powerful assault rifle in the game, though to compensate has the worst accuracy. It also comes equipped with a grenade launcher attachment.
Assault Rifle RN
Found exclusively in Leon's campaign, the Assault Rifle RN resides within a middle ground, with its modest power and accuracy. Though what really sets it apart is the added bayonet, which when equipped will allow the player to use it for any melee attacks and finishers.
Also returning from Resident Evil 5, the Lightning Hawks continues on with its specific blend of power and recoil resistance. This weapon is only found in Leon's campaign.
Resident Evil 6's own revolver-magnum, the Elephant Killer is the most powerful weapon in the game minus the RPG. Its recoil is strong, though its power is so great it can often shoot through up to three enemies at once.
A standard bolt-action sniper rifle, this weapon is only found in Jake and Ada's campaigns.
Found in Leon and Chris' campaigns, the Semi-Auto Rifle has a much faster firing rate and quick reload, though it lacks in power to its sniper rifle brethren.
Piers' sniper rifle exclusive only to him, the Anti-Material Rifle is the third most powerful gun in the game behind the Elephant Killer and RPG. Because of its power, it has a hard kickback and requires that every bullet must be loaded between shots.
Found only in Chris' campaign, and as is custom with the series the Grenade Launcher can equip multiple types of grenades. There are regular grenade rounds, acid rounds, and freeze rounds. The grenade rounds deal heavy explosive damage with plenty of splash damage to go with it; acid will continually do damage over time; and freeze rounds will instantly freeze all common enemies - from that point on the player only needs shoot once, or use a melee attack, to shatter the frozen enemy.
Another weapon only for Ada, the Crossbow has two different types of arrows: regular and explosive. Regular arrows generally do little damage, but will always kill a regular enemy instantly when shot to the head. Explosive will stick to an enemy and then quickly proceed to tick down. Once it explodes the damage dealt is about on par with the Grenade Launcher.
Only found and used in Leon's campaign for the sole purpose of finishing off the mutated Derek C. Simmons, the RPG can only be attained and kept in the player's inventory if they let their cooperative partner shoot Simmons instead. Once it's unlocked, the purchasable Skill to get infinite RPG ammo is also made available.
Found only in Chris and Ada's campaigns, the hand grenade is an exceptionally powerful tool that can disperse and destroy small crowds with ease.
Found in Leon and Ada's campaigns, the incendiary doesn't do as much initial damage as hand grenades but still continually burns through enemies after so many seconds. Using an incendiary grenade is also the only way to truly kill a Rasklapanje.
While it deals no damage, flash grenades will briefly stun enemies allowing players to perform context-sensitive melee moves. Unlike the Las Plagas from RE4 and RE5, flash grenades will no longer instantly kill a mutated enemy.
About as powerful as a hand grenade, Remote Bombs have an added perk in the ability for players to choose when it will explode, introducing the possibility to set a trap.
Resident Evil 6 sees the return of the classic slow, shambling zombies that hounded the heroes of the series up until Resident Evil 4. This particular iteration of the zombie is much more advanced over the usual zombies from the past, however. They're much faster, agile, and can even leap a small distance through the air to attempt to grab the player by surprise.
Furthermore, these zombies are occasionally seen to wield melee weapons--which they groggily attempt to attack the player with--and even firearms. Though much like their effectiveness with melee weapons, zombies have poor accuracy and tend to lamely fire aimlessly until they run out of ammo and then throw the gun away. While zombies are still generally sluggish in movement, this iteration of the undead has the capacity to climb ladders.
Zombies are primarily encountered across all of Leon S. Kennedy's campaign, though they do still make an occasional appearance during portions of Ada Wong's as well.
Certain zombies will have a noticeably red skin-pigment, and once damaged will then begin to mutate into a Bloodshot. Sort of resembling the Crimson Head zombies from the Resident Evil remake, Bloodshots are significantly more durable than regular zombies and will often attempt to leap at the player doing a sizeable amount of damage. Their one weak spot is their heart, which sporadically reveals itself beneath the hard-casing that has formed around it. Melee attacks aren't as effective as against regular zombies, however, though continuous firearm fire is still a viable solution for taking down a Bloodshot.
Because these are an advanced mutation of zombies, Bloodshots are also only encountered across Leon and Ada's campaigns.
These multi-eyed monsters are the newest version of heavily mutated common enemies, such as the Ganados from Resident Evil 4 and the Majini in Resident Evil 5, that weren't simply mindless zombies but rather mutations that would grow and change. However, the J'avo from the very beginning are able to utilise a variety of firearms and grenades. Those infected have been shown to wear a mask to cover up their mutated eyes.
Resident Evil 6 had been stirring within the public's mind for a while. Rumors and small tidbits referencing the game's development began circulating during E3 2011, when a logo for Resident Evil 6 was posted, along with the date to the same year's TGS show. Nothing Resident Evil-related occurred during the TGS show, however a trailer was released on September 16th, implying that Resident Evil 6 was to be set in Canada. The trailer was soon shot down by Capcom as a fake. The next batch of rumors began pointing towards China, after a voice actress' resume was found to state she would be portraying a ''Chinese zombie'' for Resident Evil 6.
In a similar move during Resident Evil 5's marketing, Capcom began a purposely shoddy looking viral campaign called NoHopeLeft.com, which sprinkled random blogs and notes much like for some sort of conspirators website, detailing how the entire world is under siege. Only one day before the début trailer, the site posted a movie of a greatly distressed Chinese woman making a vlog for a loved one, under the guise of a civilian currently in the midst of whatever catastrophe is going on. It cuts out as she is seemingly attacked by something. Soon afterwards, another video is posted just with the date and time of ''01.19.12 14:00 PST''. Without fail, the site then posted a link to the début Resident Evil 6 trailer at 2pm Pacific the next day with the words ''This explains a lot!!!!''.
Continuing the viral campaign, on February 21st the nohopeleft website was ''seized and put under investigation'', with a logo not seen before within the series at the bottom of the page linking a downloadable audio file titled ''praying audio''. Much like the title implies, it plays a short 14 second clip of a young Chinese woman (possibly the same one from the vlog) praying in her native language.
While originally slated for a 11/20/12 release, come the Captivate trailer in April, the date was pushed forward to 10/02/12. Despite only being announced early 2012, Capcom stated that development for Resident Evil 6 had been going on since 2010. It was also stated to be the ''largest'' Resident Evil game to date, and the Capcomteam working on it was the biggest one they had working on a single game --approximately 600 people. For comparison's sake, roughly around 120 people worked on Resident Evil 5. Capcom said that with Resident Evil 6, they want to combine the series strongest elements of horror and action; executive producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi coined the term ''dramatic horror'' to best summarise their ambitions, in an attempt to replicate Mikami's original fame for creating the Survival Horror moniker. The popular military-shooter series Call of Duty was recurrently bought up as influential--notably regarding its sales--in how Capcom decided to steer forward the next instalment of the Resident Evil series.
At the Electronic Entertainment Expo's Microsoft Conference, Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Eiichiro Sasaki took to the stage to unveil their first trailer showing off unedited gameplay, focussing on Leon's story, for Resident Evil 6.
Only minutes after the Microsoft Conference was over, Capcom uploaded another cinematic trailer surrounding the plot of the game. On the show floor, multiple streams showing off small segments of Leon's, Chris' and Jake's stories were shown as well, along with further explanation for the gameplay debut of 4-player boss battles.
After the overall poor reception of the 360 demo released on July 3rd--most notably regarding the camera and screen-tearing--Capcom quickly saw fit to showcase a more updated edition of Resident Evil 6, including a much more manageable camera with the character model not taking up so much of the screen, and improved technical aspects. Capcom also used this opportunity to introduce more segments for each of the campaigns, as well as upload another edited story trailer.
Street Date Broken
On August 31st, more than a month before Resident Evil 6's officially scheduled release, a few copies of the full game--PS3 version--were made available for retail sale in the Polish City of Poznań. Capcom quickly reported that such copies were in fact 'stolen'.
Returning once more is the popular Mercenaries minigame, which is pretty much an exact replica of the Resident Evil 5 iteration, and is unlocked by completing the Prelude. Starting with 2 minutes, players are to kill as many enemies as possible within the time limit. Where RE6's Mercenaries differ is the addition of an enemy counter, which shows how many enemies out of a set amount of spawns on the map the player has killed. The more enemies the player kills, the more aggressive the enemies get, and will also begin spawning sub-bosses as well.
Players can extend their overall time by finding and destroying Time Bonuses throughout the map, and any enemies that are killed via a melee attack will grant the player an additional few seconds. Mercenaries can be played cooperatively for up to 2 players in both local split-screen and online.
By default there are only three characters available and one map. More characters are unlocked by attaining a B rank on each map, and two more maps are unlocked by completing both Chris and Jake's campaigns - one per campaign. Alternate costumes are also available, and are unlocked per character by attaining an A rank with the character itself. Much like in RE5, each of the character's alternate costumes will have a different set of weapons and supplies.
Like the main campaign, skills are available for players to purchase with in-game points and equip, though only one Skill may be equipped at a time. These Skills are also completely separate from the ones in the main game, and the player's point currency is unique to Mercenaries and doesn't carry over, nor can it be imported, from the main game. Instead players must collect Skills points from defeated enemies in the Mercenaries mode itself.

A competitive multiplayer mode similar to the Left 4 Dead series Versus mode, Agent Hunt allows players to take on the role of a creature (J'avo, zombie ect.) across any of the campaigns and then try to impede players currently going through the story. However, they can only invade players who have already allowed the option before hand in the lobby.
Agent Hunt is unlocked by completing any one of the campaigns.
Infinite Ammo Skills
Once all four of the campaigns have been completed, Infinite Ammo Skills per weapon type are made available for purchase.
Ada Wong Campaign
Initially, once all of the original three campaigns had been unlocked Ada's was then made available. Though via a patch it is now accessible from the beginning.
Ada's differs in that it is a single player campaign with no AI partners, though it can still be played in coop. There also still exist segments where Ada will connect with the other campaigns and the option to search for other players to join in as temporary allies is still available. Otherwise they are controlled by the AI and function just like the player's partner characters in the original campaigns.

The purposely abstract Number ''6'' logo for Resident Evil 6 went under some scrutiny shortly after it was revealed within the début trailer for its appearance - which has been said to resemble a giraffe, whilst wearing a boot, receiving fellatio from a woman. It sparked a lot of talk on many forums across the internet (most notably 4chan) and was subjected to parody and even drawings to better illustrate the ''hidden image'' within the number 6 logo.
While CAPCOM didn't go as far as to acknowledge the fellatio comparison, they were open to admitting and making fun of the similarities the logo shares with a giraffe via a Facebook update.
To coincide with CAPCOM's other equally invested IP, Dragon's Dogma, CAPCOM slotted in a code to unlock a demo for Resident Evil 6 for players who buy new copies of Dragon's Dogma. However, there is a large interval regarding the activation dates between the 360 and PS3 versions because of Microsoft paying for temporary exclusivity; the 360 demo is available to download on July 3rd, whereas for the PS3 it's September 5th. A public demo was then released for all on September 18th for the PS3 and 360 Gold Members (Silver members had to wait until September 25th) which contained different sections of gameplay than in the first demo for each of the three campaigns.
CAPCOM have stated that their reasoning for separating the demo activation dates was a ''strategic business decision''. Head of the UK branch David Turner also further elaborated by saying that, ''The dream would be that the millions of Call of Duty fans that are enjoying these fast-paced online games are attracted to this Resident Evil'', implying that they're pushing for the 360 because of its larger player base surrounding Call of Duty.
July 3rd/September 5th Demo
At under 1GB, the Resident Evil 6 demo included a small excerpt from each of the three campaigns, Leon, Chris, and Jake--which were originally shown on the stage-floor of 2012's E3 expo.
Leon's was situated during the beginning, after he is forced to kill the zombified President Adam Benford. Along with Helena, they make their way through the Tall Oaks University, before bumping into a lost father and daughter who are both infected with the C-Virus, and are eventually forced to defend themselves against an onslaught of zombies.
Chris Redfield's begins around the time he and Piers Nivans reunite after their mission in Europe 6 months prior. Then, skipping to their mission during China, the two fight across the rooftops of Langshiang against a small band of J'avo resistance. Jake Muller's demo gives players the taste of one of Resident Evil 6's boss battles as he along with Sherry do battle with B.O.W. Ustanak programmed by Neo-Umbrella to hunt down Jake Muller -- not unlike how The Nemesis stalked Jill Valentine during Resident Evil 3.
All three of the campaigns can be played solo or online with another player, though not in splitscreen. Should players die they must restart the demo level over - there are no checkpoints.
September 18th Public Demo
Sized at 847MB and available for all on both PS3 and 360, Resident Evil 6's second demo gave another taste of each of the three main campaigns. Alongside that, the demo featured a better optimised camera and smoother technical properties.
In partnership with Valve, Capcom have included additional exclusive L4D2-themed content for Resident Evil 6's PC version free of charge. The four main characters of L4D2--Coach, Ellis, Nick, and Rochelle--are available as playable characters in the Mercenaries Mode with their own inventory loadouts. Some of the special mutated infected, such as The Witch and The Tank, also appear in the mode as additional mini-bosses.
Furthermore, many of Resident Evil 6's J'avo and its own special zombie enemies will also appear in Left 4 Dead 2 as well for free.
After Resident Evil 6 underwent waves of criticism by both fans and critics, Capcom saw fit to release numerable patches to attempt to 'fix' certain commonplace issues, while also opening up a lot of content that was initially required to be unlocked. Such alterations included thus far have been:
- A much wider Field of View.
- An option to make QTE's much easier to deal with.
- Numerous tweaks and balances to the overall difficulty.
- The option to now select between lesser chapters within the main five chapters for each campaign.
- Making Ada Wong's campaign playable from the outset.
- The option to play Ada Wong's campaign in cooperative play; though it can still be played solo just as Ada, with no permanent AI partner.
- Making Agent Hunt mode to be playable from the outset.
Scheduled for release on the same day as the default Resident Evil 6 game are the Anthology and Archive collections - a compilation of the main Resident Evil games for the PS3 & 360 respectively. The name difference signifies more than just console difference, however, as each one features a different selection of games:
Exclusive to European regions, the Collector's Edition is fitted with the usual set of additions alongside the main game - all of which are packed within a needle-bomb themed box:
- Resident Evil 6 video game
- Zombie-themed steelbook
- Hardback artbook
- DLC codes for an avatar if it's the 360 version or a dynamic theme if the PS3
- Three Emblem insignias featuring signatures from RE6 developers Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Eiichiro Sasaki
- Tall Oaks Ivy University sweatshirt
Exclusive only to Japan is the Premium Edition, which includes the full RE6 game along with four tablet covers and an exact replica of Leon S. Kennedy's jacket during the part in Tall Oaks. Because of the high price of 105,000 yen, otherwise roughly conversed as 1,300$, the reaction was tepid at best. Capcom's official US blog, Capcom Unity, held a poll asking their International audience whether they wanted the edition to be made available over in the States. Rounded to a basis of 100, the poll shown that only 20/100 votes were in favor of purchasing the edition should it be made available.
