A Good Look At Resident Evil 6’s Mercenaries Mode

By Ishaan . September 3, 2012 . 5:20pm

Resident Evil 6’s Mercenaries Mode looks a little different from the previous games. While the concept is the same, you have more mobility in this game, which makes it look a little more fast-paced. Capcom streamed about a few minutes of the mode at the Penny Arcade Expo, and you can watch this below:

A few notes from the stream:

  • Each character has a different load-out.
  • Zombies jump at you. A QTE lets you catch them mid-air and take them down.
  • Both split-screen and online co-op.
  • The map shown in the stream above is a GameStop pre-order exclusive.
  • All playable characters in Mercenaries mode haven’t been revealed yet.


Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will follow later.

    I still play RE5’s Mercenaries to this day and from the looks of it RE6’s Mercs is going to keep me occupied for a long time!

  • Godman

    Playing RE5’s Merc was fun, but the gameplay was stiff (you couldn’t move while aiming) 

    Seeing how RE6 will have more flexible gameplay, I’m looking forward to Mercenaries

    I hope Wesker’s a playable character

    RE5’s Mercenaries brought me weeks of fun even after completing the game. I am sure this will do the same.

    Looks ten times better than RE5 Mercs. Classic zombieZ is a win!
