During Sony’s conference at TGS 2015, Capcom revealed a new fast paced third person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe. The competitive online game will feature quick, intense matches in compact battle zones themed from historic Resident Evil environments. Umbrella Corps will be available digitally for an MSRP of EUR 29.99 / GBP 24.99 / USD 29.99 exclusively for PC and PS4 in early 2016.
The game will feature team-based matches where players compete online in a variety of unique close quarter battle modes. Each match will be short and brutal and is designed for quick play. The game will feature an analog aim and cover system, allowing for more precise control when firing from cover.
In the One Life Deathmatch mode, players must achieve their main objective to take down the other team without any option to re-spawn. One life per round is all a player gets as they must not only face the enemy team but also contend with zombies that populate each map. Though these can be added threats, they can also be used to a player’s advantage if strategically used to hinder the other team.
Players will be equipped with gun and grenade based weaponry as well as specialized gear that add an extra layer of Resident Evil flair to the action. The non-traditional arsenal includes the Brainer (a powerful melee axe which goes straight into the skull), Tactical Shield (an arm-mounted guard allowing players to utilise a zombie as cover), Terrain Spikes (boot-mounted spikes for trampling the enemy), and Zombie Jammer (a device which repels zombies only when active). Players must be quick and strategic in changing up their tactics and weapons to win against the opposing team in this all-out brawl.
Lucky attendees of the Tokyo Game Show will be able to try the game this week. The first demo will include two teams facing off in a 3 vs. 3 set-up of the One Life Deathmatch mode.
