A couple of days ago, Capcom revealed that you’d be able to unlock a separate campaign for Ada Wong (see footage here) after completing Chris, Leon and Jake’s individual campaigns in Resident Evil 6. While Ada’s campaign will be a solo affair for the most part, Ada will on occasion be joined by other characters. For instance, the screenshot above shows her and new character, Helena Harper, together.
Capcom have also shared new details of the various organizations in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the BSAA, there are now three other new organizations in the game.
The BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance) is the organization Chris Redfield works for. They were in both Resident Evil: Revelations and Resident Evil 5. While the BSAA started as a non-governmental organization, the Queen Zenobia incident in Resident Evil: Revelations led to them being restructured as a special task force under the control of the United Nations. There exist eight branches of the BSAA around the world.
Leon now works for an organization called the DSO (Division of Security Operations). The DSO was formed in 2011 by U.S. president, Adam Benford, to protect the country from bio-terrorism. Leon was one of the founding members of the organization, and the DSO comprises mostly of flexible government operatives who report directly to the president.
Sherry Birkin, who’s back in Resident Evil 6, works for the DSO as well. When she joined the organization, Sherry was tasked with the protective detail of new character Jake Muller.
In addition to the DSO, the president also formed a second organization in 2011—the FOS (Field Operation Support). The job of the FOS is to provide support to government agents, not just from the DSO, but across the U.S. The FOS gives these agents their instructions. (Is this who Hunnigan works for now?)
Edonian anti-government mercenaries:
Finally, there’s the Edonian anti‐government mercenaries. Edonia, a European state, underwent a change in government when a group of officers staged a coup d’etat. The rebels didn’t manage to overthrow the government—instead, the rebellion caused the government to strengthen its resolve and the current ruling party was replaced by a new one that focused on strengthening ties with European countries.
In the years that followed, while most anti-government rebels went into hiding, other extremist rebels continue to protest, and have managed to get their hands on the C-virus, which creates the J’avo. This causes the BSAA to intervene.
Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd in North America for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
