Here’s a quick summary of what ResidentEvil.net will do on a player-by-player basis:

 

  • Track stats for enemies killed, weapons used, medals earned and more.
  • Facebook, Twitter and iOS/Android compatibility.
  • Yield “RE.Net points” for using the service and entering online challenges.
  • Allow players to exchange points for additional Mercenaries mode costumes.
  • Periodical Champion Belt challenges. The belt can only be held by one player.

 

Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd in North America for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Capcom have confirmed that the game has gone gold and is presently being manufactured. A PC version will follow next year.
