Capcom released more details for Resident Evil 6, which is coming to consoles in Europe on October 2, 2012. Please feast your eyes and your delicious brains on this collector’s edition.
The premium version will include the game together with a zombie steelbook, as well as an exclusive artbook that includes concept art from the game. It will also include 3 high quality emblems from the main groups, placed on a nice frame and signed by some of the franchise’s top dogs. Owners on Xbox 360 will also receive a DLC code for an exclusive avatar, while Playstation 3 buyers will get a special theme. To top it off, you’ll be able to represent your adoration down at your local hoops with a totally boss Ivy University hooded sweatshirt. The whole comes in a needle bomb packaging for that extra touch of danger.
Preorders will also be able to snag themselves a Limited Edition Steel Book. No price has been given so far.
In case you haven’t gotten enough Resident Evil 6, Capcom also release 18 minutes or so of virtually no action whatsoever. Still, the introductory gameplay reels are brimming with atmosphere for those that appreciate that.
It starts off strong with Leon shooting the president in the face. Of course, he had been infected already. It also gives us a first look at some of the lip syncing that comes from the many cutscenes in the game. Leon and his companion are on their way to a cathedral, where everything will be explained. One would wonder why explanations would not come firsthand during an outbreak, but moving on. Our first taste of actual gameplay contains more than 5 minutes of just walking around the building, with occasional door prompts. There is however a nifty, slighted interface on the right. Then more walking occurs when the two find a man looking for his daughter. As they walk, some light and shadow play can be seen.
The second trailer is unfortunately only mildly better. Again, more than half of it will just be walking along the escort objective. Finally, father and daughter fall into each other’s arms and then fall victim to the same infection. That’s when the magic happens and all hell breaks loose. Soon enough, Leon and friends will find themselves swarmed with mobs. Leon can be seen rolling away as a tactical evasion, there’s quick time events to ward off zombies and striking melee attacks. Leon uses 2 guns at once and that makes for some fancy shooting. The trailer then takes a brief look at the inventory, where used herbs indicate that the interface has a health bar along its ammo meter. The sequence ends once the duo conveniently makes it to security cams right on time to watch a few civilians in need die.
