Today, Capcom released a fact sheet with some more details about the upcoming Resident Evil 6. They also released a handful of screenshots, but they're not actually screenshots, just screen captures from the trailer, so I'm not going to waste my time posting them.
First up, while we knew that the game would send Chris Redfield to China, it has now been revealed that the main location there will be the fictitious coastal town of Lanshiang. Also, RE 6 is set in the year 2013.
In addition to the zombies, RE 6 will feature an enemy called the J'avo. That's the Serbian word for "demon," in case you were wondering. These creatures still retain some human traits, like the ability to understand speech, work together and use weapons, even as their personalities remain aggressive and they run on pure animal instinct. The most interesting aspect of this new enemy, though, is the J'avo's ability to regenerate itself. Meaning that after taking major damage, it will mutate the affected body part into something new and horrifying, so you'll have to adapt your combat strategy appropriately.
It seems that each successive RE game makes the controls just a little bit better (God, remember playing RE 1 like it was a tank simulator?), and this installment will be no different. Capcom is promising the ability to shoot while moving, slide, roll in any direction and take cover as well as the addition of an enhanced melee attack.
I'm sure more details will surface alongside actual screenshots of the game many times between now and the November 20 release date, so rest assured that I will share them as I get them!
