Umbrella Corps trailer confirms release date
Capcom officially announced today that their upcoming title, Umbrella Corps, a third-person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe, will be released in May 2016 digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC. You can check out the new Umbrella Corps trailer in the player below!
The multiplayer shooter will support 1-6 players and, though the majority of modes will be geared towards competitive team battles, a single player mode called “The Experiment” challenges players to hone their skills as they familiarize themselves with the world of Umbrella Corps in more than 20 missions with varying objectives. This coliseum-style horde like mode strips players of the zombie jammer device that provides perilous protection in multiplayer modes, putting them in a head-on confrontation with progressively harder waves of creatures, across multiple missions.
Umbrella Corps will feature adrenaline-fueled matches in familiar locales from various Resident Evil games. In addition to the previously-announced Umbrella Laboratory map, players will be able to experience areas inspired by Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The famed Village from RE4 has been retooled for heated multiplayer matches that escalate to the rooftops, while the Tricell organization from RE5 has a newly-imagined HQ to explore. Players must not only face off against the rival mercenary team, but also the stage-specific threats such as the crazed Ganados (RE4) and blood-thirsty Cerberus dogs (RE5). More information on additional maps and modes are still to come.
