GD07: Umbrella Chronicles

GD07: Umbrella Chronicles

The on-rails shooter Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles is back at it again with Capcom's Gamers Day 2007. These new images show us a Wesker in its youth, while he was part of the S.T.A.R.S. team before being attacked by Tyrant and, slowly, becoming the antagonist in most of the Resident Evil titles (playable in The Mercenaries for RE4). The guy with an Umbrella insigna seems to be a new character. Mmm...

I'm such a big fan of the resident evil series..I read the new guy is russian, i can see him mutating into a tyrant lol

I simply bought the gamecube to play RE games and nothing else, i don't want to buy a wii just for this game :?(

Hope they release a version for the ps2! come on campcom!


I think it would be interesting to see if this game will be a success on the wii, wii being promoted and advertised for a more family product with cute colourful games, would such a game sell alot? even though there are so many wii consoles?

You and I are the same, Splicer. I bought a Gamecube - just - for RE4 (and picked up the awesome RE1 of course), and I bought a Wii just for this game. I hope to finish it quickly so I can sell the Wii in time for Christmas and make a killing.

If we'd play as an american he'd be as intellectual as a donkey and shoot before asking questions? Hope you didn't mean that serious.

Nevertheless, now the game looks much better than a few weeks ago. Good work, Capcom!

Im a huge Resi fan but I think I'll wait it out for Resi 5. Played the previous on the rail Resi shooters on PS1 and they were lame.

About the game

    Sdarts Blizzard giving the original StarCraft for free is very generous of them. Weird to think Activision owns it, even though Blizzard has free reign. One of the best onwed by one of the worst. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered's additions - more in the article - and the fact that Blizzard will make the original StarCraft free, and let players of the original play with those of the remastered is great. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts StarCraft Remastered out this summer: [url] 4K visuals, modern online play, LAN support with Blizzard Friends & Matchmaking. (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Those are mods and they will be available if/once the PC version comes out. (2 Hours ago)

    Sdarts @KORNdog: That's true. But I'm sure it will still sell a gazillion of copies. Specially if it ends up being as great as the first one. Also, very few Westerns, so people will love the "novelty". (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog although rocket powered horse racing with loop the loops, 1000ft jumps and corkscrews would be pretty entertaining. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog the MP mode has tron cycles and trackmania style racing. i just can't see RDR having that sort of mass appeal unless they go ball to the wall crazy with the way they do things. (2 Hours ago)
