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.

They should just stick to Remasters at this point, which is their primary direction right now.

I'd actually like to play this. Never been a big fan of Resident Evil to begin with so this isn't crushing any existing expectations. I always hated not being able to move and shoot. Never made any sense.

Clearly this isn't a game for traditional RE gamers, but you guys can suck it. I'm willing to give this game a try.
