It's just been announced that the latest installment in Capcom's zombie survival series, Resident Evil, will feature not one, but THREE separate campaigns that are all interwoven.
Players will be able to play as Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield or the mysterious mercenary Jake Muller, son of the one and only...Albert Wesker. Each character will have their own partner which means, yes, every campaign is co-op enabled, both online and split screen.
Leon will be paired with U.S. government agent Helena Harper, Chris will be accompanied by fellow BSAA agent Piers Nivans, while Jake will be joined by Sherry Birkin, daughter of former key Umbrella scientists, William and Annette. Their stories will take players through North America, a war-torn Eastern Europe, and a populated Chinese city called Lanshiang.
The game's story will revolve around the newly-discovered C-Virus that apparently spawns zombies, the J'avo monsters, as well as the all new Chrysalide, which metamorphose into a bigger threat.
Now I know this is a lot of RE awesomeness to take in all at once but there's one more bonus piece of news in store...
Resident Evil 6's official release date has been changed to October 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360; over a month earlier than previously mentioned!
