New Resident Evil 6 Information
While I do love random speculation, nothing beats answers and, at last, we have some answers about the mysterious Resident Evil 6.
First of all, I’m really glad to say that it has been announced that the game takes place in 2013, meaning it is set after the previous games so it’s definitely not a prequel. There’s nothing wrong with a good prequel, Devil May Cry 3 for example, but when it’s not needed prequels can be really annoying, Devil May Cry 5 for example (though technically it’s a reboot, isn’t called Devil May Cry 5 and looks great).
The President that is turned into a zombie, affectionately nicknamed President Evil by fans, is not Ashley’s father; he is the man that took the position after President Graham. This effectively gets rid of my burning desire to have Ashley be the female protagonist with the new mercenary; it just felt right for the story when I thought it was President Graham that had died. The identity of the new mercenary still has not been revealed, but apparently he was introduced so we young folk would have someone to relate to. Seems unnecessary, but I’m not complaining, plus they probably meant young people that were new to the series.
Fans were happy to see the return of zombies, but don’t get too excited because they are not the same as the ones that have been missing for so long. These are not T-Virus zombies they’re a new breed of zombie known as J’avo. They are faster and more aggressive than your standard undead. The added speed won’t cause too much of a problem as you will now be able to move and shoot, no longer will you have to choose. The controls have been reworked with an added focus on melee attacks, sliding and rolling and all sorts of fun things.
We already knew that Leon, Chris and the new guy were each in different locations, we can see that in the trailer, but now more information has been released. Leon is in a town called Tall Oaks, we seen that in the trailer, Chris is in a Chinese city called Lansiang and the new guy is in Eastern Europe. Another interesting point is that Chris is apparently going through some sort of personal trauma. This would have fed in well with the whole ‘Jill is dead’ thing in Resident Evil 5, but as I said this isn’t a prequel. Could this mean the end of another Resident Evil character? Claire perhaps, I hope not.
What do you think? Has this announcement made you more or less excited about the game? Are you glad it’s not a prequel? Are you still mad about the Devil May Cry reboot? Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below, also don’t forget to follow and, if you like this post, click the like button.
