As RESIDENT EVIL 6 rapidly approaches to be shipped out in UK retailers, fans are already excited about the game as some are pre-ordering the game online on sites like Amazon.co.uk, Gamestation.co.uk plus many other video game sites to avoid disappointment. The game is set to be the ‘biggest and baddest’ series in the franchise so far with possibly sales going up rapidly providing a quick boost to CAPCOM’s profits despite their loss of 73.1 percent during the double dip recession back in 2010. CAPCOM mentioned they predicted they will have 7 million copies sold worldwide or possibly more than that for the first week after the release date of the official game launch.
Moving on to the footage… At GamesCom 2012 Press Conference Presentation, (video clip is embedded below this article) Director of RESIDENT EVIL 6 Eiichiro Sasaki demonstrated a gameplay from Jake Muller’s Campaign, to the audience of the event on how cool the game looks including the graphics which looks ‘realistic’ with ‘beautiful vivid colours and high contrast’ when you play on a better HD Ready LCD or LED TV.
The footage also shows during a cut-scene sequence of Sherry Birkin telling her childhood horror of her past as she tells the story about the Raccoon City Incident to Jake Muller, including her parents and their work on Umbrella Corporation. She then mentions her close friendship with Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy as they saved her life on that day when she was infected by her own father, who was mutated into the creature known as the ‘G Monster’ or ‘The G’. Claire was the one who vaccinated Sherry. Jake Muller then teased her on the ‘healing ability’ upon gaining super human powers obtained from the G-virus she was infected inside her body. Moments later, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin were interrupted by ‘snow zombies’ and decided to make a run for it from the gun toting horde of the infected.
We will also learn about the relationship between Jake Muller and his deceased father, Albert Wesker.
As you know in many previous gameplay footages from the three campaign modes, each three main characters will go their own ways and will somehow ‘intertwine’ with each other, forming an ‘alliance’, to stop the horror from wiping out mankind. Players will experience something ‘unique and different’ about the Campaign as Jake Muller’s part will be more of an action heavy combat style while Leon S. Kennedy will be more darker, grittier and scarier – dramatic survival horror style and Chris Redfield will be fun-action style. This hints that there will be plenty of large-scale firefights, awesome boss battles and numerous waves of zombies will be the most common.
The game has new additional features to the series which is a brand new revamped ‘take cover’ system, dynamic enemy interactions and an on-rails vehicle sequence. CAPCOM said RESIDENT EVIL 6 will have a close resemble to the popular Call Of Duty Series.
So, what do you think about the footage? Was it good? How is the action sequence and what do you think of the vehicles that players can take control for the first time?
