|resident evil A new trailer for Resident Evil 6 has hit the net. It's only a 3 min trailer but it's crammed with spoilers and actual gameplay (which is always good to see). We take a closer look at the video and the plot for the new game.
We've always been a big fan of the Resident Evil series. It seems like yesterday when the original game arrived on the Playstation. It was an amazing game at the time, quite different from today's resident evils. It had that pure horror element, never knowing what was round the corner or which way the story would lead you. Jump forward about 10 years and Resident Evil 4 comes along. RE4 was the mother of all RE games. A truly amazing story, great gameplay and the kind of game that you compare all others too.
So, what does the new RE6 trailer tell us? Well, looks like Resident Evil 6 will be set in China this time. The familiar (and popular) characters Leon and Chris are back in the game (you might remember them from Resident Evil 4). Ashley, the presidents daughter from RE4 also makes an appearance.
As you can see from the video, the game looks darker and the visuals are impressive. Lots of nightime scenes and no daytime. It's good to see that the game is far removed from RE5 which tried too hard to be a FPS shooter. We don't want Resident Evil becoming the next Call of Duty.
Zombies are back
Another great reveal from the trailer is the fact that Zombies are back. Resident Evil is supposed to be about zombies! Fans of the original series will be pleased to hear this news.
Is it all good?
Overall the video is excellent, with only one thing bugging us. The game feels a little militaristic. Should Resident Evil be the military vs the zombies? We preferred that isolated individual, with no help, out to survive alone.
Anyway, it's early days and the trailer does look good..see for yourself.
