CAPCOM ANNOUNCES RESIDENT EVIL® THEMED THIRD-PERSON SHOOTER UMBRELLA CORPSTM
Mercenary Squads Battle in Fast-Paced Online Matches Set in the Iconic Resident Evil® Universe
TOKYO — Sept. 15, 2015 — At the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia (SCEJA) Press Conference 2015 in Tokyo today, Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, announced Umbrella Corps™, a new fast-paced third person shooter set in the Resident Evil® universe. The competitive online game will feature quick, intense matches in compact battle zones themed from historic Resident Evil environments. The game utilizes the Unity engine developed by Unity Technologies. Umbrella Corps will be available digitally for an MSRP of $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC across North America and Europe in early 2016.
Umbrella Corporation, a ruthless international pharmaceutical company, had been known for its genetic experiments and biological weaponry that led to worldwide devastation including the infamous Raccoon City incident . Although the organization was brought down in 2003, its legacy of bio-terrorism continued. In the present day, corporations with nebulous interests in bio-weaponry have hired squads of special forces for experimental battles in restricted virus-infected areas against other mercenaries.
Umbrella Corps will feature high-intensity team-based matches where players can compete online in a variety of unique close quarter battle modes. Each adrenaline-fueled match will be short and brutal and is designed for quick and engaging play. The game will feature an analog aim and cover system, allowing for more precise control when firing from cover.
In the One Life Match mode, players must achieve their main objective to take down the other team without any option to re-spawn. One life per round is all a player gets as they must not only face the enemy team but also contend with classic Resident Evil enemies such as zombies that populate each map. Though these can be added threats, they can also be used to a player’s advantage if strategically used to hinder the other team.
In order to face all these threats, players will be equipped with gun and grenade based weaponry as well as specialized gear that add an extra layer of Resident Evil flair to the action. The non-traditional arsenal includes the Brainer (a powerful melee axe which goes straight into the skull), Tactical Shield (an arm-mounted guard allowing players to utilize a zombie as cover), Terrain Spikes (boot-mounted spikes for trampling the enemy), and Zombie Jammer (a device which repels zombies only when active). Players must be quick and strategic in changing up their tactics and weapons to win against the opposing team in this all-out brawl.
Attendees of Tokyo Game Show will be able to try their hand at Umbrella Corps which will make its playable debut at the event this week. The first demo will include two teams facing off in a 3 vs. 3 set-up of the One Life Match mode.
of mental health problems go through. It's not a joke, even if people have polluted the waters of what is and isn't really a condition. It needs to be taken at least as serious as diabetes. (58 minutes ago)
and killed a bunch of people. If I had the money I would open my own awareness center to educate people as to how important mental health is, and what those suffering from either side of the aisle... (1 Hour ago)
The problem is mental health isn't taken seriously in the country. It isn't explained properly to the general public and so they're apathetic about it, but then they wonder why someone went ape-shit.. (1 Hour ago)
Maybe I should turn all-chat back on: [url] (10 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: i've been on about 7 types of anti depressants in the last 5 years. lol. it's anecdotal, but they work. they just usually come with some shitty side effect. (13 Hours ago)
Now with that said.. there's no cure. Most of these disorders are poorly understood, as is brain chemistry. And people like Chris Cornell were being treated. But results vary. Better than a sugar pill (13 Hours ago)
