It was confirmed this week that Ada Wong will be a playable character with her own individual campaign in what looks to be the upcoming awesomeness that is Resident Evil 6. A single player experience, Ada’s campaign features unique missions and will allow us to play from her own unique perspective on the bioterrorist outbreaks that threaten to wipe out the world’s population. Ada Wong’s campaign becomes available once we complete the campaigns for Leon, Chris and Jake.
Plus you can experience the action as a flesh eating zombie, J’avo or other C-virus mutation then the all new online mode Agent Hunt delivers. As a ‘hunter’ players will be able to infiltrate other players’ sessions with the aim of eliminating the human characters. As a hunter, players will have access to the unique movements and attacks of each of the enemies, including those of the various J’avo transformations.
When you complete the main campaigns for either Leon, Chris or Jake you will unlock the Agent Hunt stages for each of those respective campaigns. When a hunter searches for a session to join they will see whether or not other players from around the world want to allow hunters into their game. The hunter then picks another player’s session to join and jumps into that session.
The agent side can be either a single human player with an AI partner, or two human players in co-op mode. Up to two separate hunters can join an Agent Hunt session. When a hunter dies they respawn in the same session as a different random enemy from that area.
If the hunter eliminates the agent then they will be taken to a ‘hunt successful’ results screen where they can join another session if they wish. If the agent is eliminated then their game session will end exactly as if they had been playing a standard game session with CPU enemies.
The more I hear about this game, the more excited I get, we have a little while to wait yet thought, Resident Evil 6 releases worldwide on October 2nd on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. A release is planned for PC players, but at a later date.
Capcom have released some schmexy new screenshots to tease us whilst we wait.
