Resident Evil Umbrella Corps may be the latest news for the ones who have heard about it. Resident Evil Umbrella Corps is the latest game (well, side game) of the Resident Evil franchise. Capcom was pretty effecitive in their past T-virus experiments, especially in the main Resident Evil (1-2-3-4-5-6), but as we see they resist to stop.
It is a competitive Multiplayer Horror Shooter which has been revealed to us by Capcom at Sony PlayStation Conference. The new style, which isn’t existing at most of Resident Evil games, is presented to us and it is open for comments. Well, i myself being a resident evil fan for life have judged the new concept. The only thing that ties it to resident evil for me is the name of Resident Evil and Zombies. Else of that it seemed to me like just a horror shooter. But i must also admit that they have some cool new stuff in it, so everyone can have their own opinion.
Capcom is launching Biohazard Umbrella Corps as a 20th year anniversary thing but it’s not the only thing they’re coming with. Also the reamakes of some previous games are expected. Here is the official trailer of the upcoming Resident Evil Umbrella Corps:
Events in Biohazard Umbrella Corps take place in a timeframe after the last game Resident Evil 6, where Umbrella Corporation is dead. We don’t have a clear clue about the full story behind it but we can just guess about it. Suppose we have to wait till the release to find it out.
New Features and Gameplay
The thing which differs from bone structure Resident Evil series is the dynamic shooting, cover and stealth action. In this new competitive horror shooter there are many cover spots, crawl ways and sneak peak openings. We can get cover, sneak behind and climb some areas using the brand new melee weapon called “The Brainer”.
There is also this new thing called zombie jammer. Zombies actually are not attacking to us, well, for a decent time at least. We’re equipped with this new device called Zombie Jammer which blocks our scent or aura, or anything that makes us look like a delicious meal to our un-dead friends. We can walk among the undead without being noticed or attacked by them, unless our jammer is damaged. Our jammer can get damaged during battle with others, then you will have to deal with the z-problem also. But it can also be leveraged as a tactical approach by damaging our opponent’s jammer and making zombies horde over them.
Here you can check out the gameplay footage:
Also one of the brand new item in Biohazard Umbrella Corps is “The Brainer”. Brand new melee weapon with extended brutality limits which gives us the ability to kill in one shot. By using the brainer you can also climb to some walls, hang yourself from sneaky spots and etc.
Resident Evil Umbrella Corps will be out for PS4 at 2016 with an estimated $30 price. I think we will be hearing more about it during following months. So, keep in touch and see you next time!
