Today Capcom released a fact sheet including character profiles and info on their upcoming survival-horror title, Resident Evil 6. Most questions that gamers have been asking have been answered along with confirming what we may or may not already know.
It has already been revealed that Chris Redfield heads to China during the course of the game but we can now confirm that the main location in China will be a fictitious coastal town called Lanshiang.
When does RE6 take place?
There has been some confusion surrounding when the game is set, so to set the record straight Resident Evil 6 takes place in 2013.
Zombies: Yes they are back, but now they run, jump at you, even use weapons and as such are different from those encountered in previous games.
When a J’avo takes damage it has the ability to regenerate itself. However if it is receives major damage then it will mutate that affected body part into a number of varied forms, meaning players will have to rethink their strategy and adapt to this unpredictability.
Redesigned control system
Resident Evil 6 features an evolved control system allowing players to shoot whilst moving; slide; roll in any direction and to take cover along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack.
This may seem like just answering the small questions we had but then again the game isn't coming out for a while giving Capcom more than enough time to release further details but at the moment, the game looks to be pretty solid!
