Resident Evil Captivate 2012 Trailer
Capcom has moved forward the release date of Resident Evil 6 by a month pushing it to October 2nd 2012 instead of November 20th. They made the announcement at the Capcom Captivated event in Rome communicating the date change from old to new at the end of the latest trailer. The new Resident Evil 6 trailer shows a lot of new footage and some characters returning to the franchise but all in all the trailer does personally bore me a little and I hope it won’t represent what the actual game will be like when it’s released.
The publisher also released some juicy details about the campaign, Resident Evil 6 has three campaigns you can play in any order you please, starting with Leon in the US, with Chris in China, or with Jake in Idonia. Muller’s campaign begins in the fictional Eastern European nation where he was born. The son of Albert Wesker, Muller’s blood holds the cure for the Resident Evil 6′s new C-Virus; in fact, Muller’s blood can handle any consonant you can throw at it – C, T, G, or t+G – which makes him the most valuable man in the world during 2013′s age of global bio-terrorism.
“Jake’s story is a story of escape,” says Resident Evil 6′s Director, Eiichiro Sasaki; “he is being followed and he is trying to evade these forces that are trying to capture him in the middle of the Idonian civil war. The horror elements you can introduce in that type of story are different from other characters, and the way he will play is different, too.”
The reason for moving the release date forward is explainable according to Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter. He thinks “it’s smart to be in front of competitive games”. Also the new release date will make Resident Evil 6 available for sale a week in advance of Assassin’s Creed 3 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter. Pachter continues: “I’m sure it was for competitive reasons. Although not the same genre, BioShock: Infinite is close to a horror-style game, and it’s coming out mid-October.”
Resident Evil 6 will be available on October 2nd 2012 on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
