Resident Evil 6 Footage Teams Leon And Helena Up With Sherry And Jake

0

At their Capcom Game Jam event this weekend, Capcom showed off new trailers for Monster Hunter 4 and E.X. Troopers. They also showed new footage of Resident Evil 6, including the scene of Leon and his new partner, Helena, meeting up with Sherry Birkin—who’s now an agent herself—and Jake, Wesker’s son. All four characters team up to work together at this point in the story. You can watch the gameplay demo for this portion of the game below:

 

 

These are crossover scenes, which are new to Resident Evil 6. If you’re playing the game online, you’ll be partnered with a random player for the crossover portions of the game. Resident Evil 6 will pick strangers who happen to be at the same point in the story for crossover battles.

 

This will happen even if you’re already playing co-op with a friend. The crossover scenes, specifically, will pair you with a stranger to team up with. Of course, if you don’t like the idea of that, the feature can be disabled as well, and you can continue to play the crossover scenes by yourself (and three AI partners) or with a friend.

 

The other footage Capcom showed off at Game Jam was of Leon in an underground metro. You can watch this portion of the demo below:

 

 

Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd in North America for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will follow at a later date.
