Capcom’s Releasing Umbrella Corps In June, Not May

Recommended Videos


Umbrella Corps has just been delayed. The $29.99 game originally had a May launch window, but Capcom has confirmed it will be released on June 21, 2016. The delay is due to extra optimization work during development.


In addition to the release date shuffle, Capcom has released a video showing how people can customize their mercenaries in-game. Umbrella Corps sends people into third-person shooter matches where teams fight one another. Winning earns points to unlock additional armor parts, like helmets, masks, and Zombie Jammers. In addition to extra parts, there are extra backpack designs, patches, decals, and colors to choose from for equipment.


Meanwhile, weapons have customization options that change how effective they are. Some unlockable parts include scopes, which improve your accuracy, or suppressors, which help hide your location when you use a weapon. These can be applied to weapons like the Doberman Pincer shotgun, K-12 AX SMG, and Samurai Edge handgun.


Umbrella Corps also has an Interconnected Communications Operations Network (I.C.O.N.) that allows people to use emotes to quickly convey messages to other players. You can choose which sounds and actions you want to use to interact with your teammates or enemies.
