Today is the Tokyo Game Show, and as we can expect from any any major entertainment showcase, the big names have some exciting announcements to make. Capcom have announced that a new Resident Evil experience is coming to PS4 and PC in early 2016, known as Umbrella Corps.
The key phrase here is that Umbrella Corps is a Resident Evil themed game. It’s set in the familiar RE universe, but aside from that, it’s a whole new experience. It’s an online third-person shooter, with an emphasis on competitive and team play.
Where Resident Evil got its fame for story-driven games and tense scares, Umbrella Corps‘ focus is on high-intensity fast-paced gameplay, with the main crux of the game being short and brutal team battles. It’ll feature classic Resident Evil-style enemies such as zombies, which can either be extra obstacles to overcome or used as a strategic advantage to win over the opposition.
No set release date has been confirmed, but Umbrella Corps will be coming to PlayStation 4 and PC in “early 2016”. Check out the gameplay trailer below:
