Resident Evil 6 Trailer
After a mysterious viral campaign, Capcom have revealed that Resident Evil 6 is happening.
Recently, a site called nohopeleft.com went up showing pictures of the words ‘no hope left’ spray painted in various locations, with the ‘o’ from ‘no’ being replaced with the sign for biohazard. Also a video of a woman crying and ranting desperately was put on the site. Resident Evil fans soon connected this with the franchise, most notably from the biohazard sign; the Japanese name for the Resident Evil games is Biohazard. Under the graffiti ‘no hope left’ in the pictures was a time and date and on that time and date the first trailer for Resident Evil 6 was released. Unfortunately, shortly before this a poster was leaked by a worker in a game shop, thus revealing the existence of the game. Still Capcom refused to comment until after the trailer was released.
The trailer is amazing and shows the two returning protagonists, Leon Kennedy and Chris Redfield, fighting to stop two different virus outbreaks. Leon is in America with the president, who is turned into a zombie after he had planned to come clean and reveal to the world what Umbrella had done in Raccoon City, and Chris is in China fighting a bioterrorist attack there. Both characters will be playable and have their own separate campaign, with a partner for co-op play. A third campaign follows a new character and Ashley Graham, yeah that’s right she’s back. This time Ashley seems less annoying, but only time will tell. The new character seems to have some sort of special blood that will help the world, probably containing a natural antidote to the virus or something. It seems as though Ashley has hired him, maybe to save her father, the president. That is if Leon hasn’t shot him. All three campaigns will be completed separately, but most likely will overlap at some stages (which will be cool).
IGN have claimed that there will be a fourth campaign, one that will become playable only after the other three have been completed. They say that this one follows Ada Wong. If it’s true then this is going to be one hell of a long game or at least I hope it will be. Though it was a good game, Resident Evil 5 was pretty short and not very scary, like not scary at all. Part of this could be due to the comfort of having a second player, but I think it’s lazy to say that it’s impossible to make a game that can scare two people at once. Horror movies do it to whole cinemas full of people, so way couldn’t a game? The bright setting also contributed to the lack of scare factor and let’s face it it was pretty action orientated. This time around we get the action parts with Chris and the scary parts with Leon, plus whatever Ashley and the new guy bring to the table (probably whiney noises and a few vials of blood).
This is the first Resident Evil game that’s ever featured both Chris and Leon as playable characters and that’s a big deal. It looks like it’s going to be the most impressive game in the series. I could be wrong, but from what I’ve seen I genuinely think this game is going to be epic. Whether you like to play solo or with friends it seems like 2012 is going to be the year of Resident Evil, hey there’s even the movie to look forward to, and I for one can’t wait.
