GB : It's been a long time since Resident Evil 5 came out, and we finally have some new details from the trailer Capcom just revealed.
Did anyone see the cover shooting at 1:55 and 2:45? You can also apparently slide into cover (2:45) and sprint (1:44). Also, Leon and Chris in one game? Anyone else got the feeling that this will be the best Resi game ever? :D
I do have to say it looks miles better then RE 5 did(which I wasn't a big fan of) and I have to admit I'm a bit excited. The biggest issue with RE5 was that the game play didn't grow from RE4 and I really hope this time around it controls better and more like a modern day game. If so I can see myself enjoying this entry. The story certainly looks pretty good seems to be a crap load going on.
Gifs from the trailer. One thing to note is that you can move and shoot at the same time. Leon's story looks like Old RE Survival Horror with the return of Zombies and the Raccon City Atmosphere. http://i.minus.com/iWc7NGxv... While Chris's story looks like more RE5 Action Horror with more Explosions and guns against bigger enemies. http://i.minus.com/ibaiGYpW... http://i.minus.com/ib2oscn3... Cover/ Slide System Note - It seems that there's enemies that pull you out of cover. http://i.minus.com/ib1G9DmE... And Third Guy's story who could be Wesker's brother, Alex considering the Wesker melee shit he does, Looks more melee action and running from a new Nemesis/Bane monster but with a chick partner that looks like & probably is Ashley from re4. http://i.minus.com/ieCadGrb... Honestly, RE6 looks pretty ambitious in that it seems to tackling multiple areas at once. Definitely excited to see more of RE6.
Wow looks like a really ambitious project, all the chars, all the atmospheres all the gameplay variations merged in one game... This could end like a GOTY or as a pile of crap. Judging for the trailer they are on the right track.
It looks like you'll be playing as Leon single Player and Chris co-op to me.
. The bald guy with scar on his face, kicking some zombies' ass; voiced by Troy Baker. Man, he's doing some serious main characters lately... The main character in Bioshock Infinite, Joel in The Last of Us, and now this. Looks like he's the next Nolan North.
RE6 will grow from RE5, but not from RE4, but at least Leon is back, going to buy it, looks far better than RE5...
Yeah cos Chris ran smooth as a tank in RE5
wallhugging coversystem will be in every game from now on
And chest-high walls
Not really The two biggest complaints about RE5 was the action focused approach and the co-op, yet they still have these two things in the game To make it worse they've thrown in a cover system, the slide thing (what is this Max Payne), and an unknown bland looking character who did all these backflips and jumpkicks making it look like an anime. Oh and I'm all for Chris and Leon but this is far too differen't from what people had in mind. Fair enough Leon and Chris alone, just them two facing the horror which is RE but it isn't like that, it's two differen't stories where Chris's story is action based (I mean three/four people as back up). Besides Chris has been far over used latley, how about Leon and Claire or Leon and Ada... Best RE game.......nope, looks alright but I'm really dissapointed with this. I thought the whole point in Operation Raccoon City was to seperate action and co-op from the main RE titles and yet they still include them. Capcom have failed me yet again. They had it right with Leons sections, was there any need to add Chris or those new no name characters.
I think if you analyse the trailer more carefully, you will see that apparently it's not simply 3 different characters with the same gameplay. Leon seems to have a similar type of gameplay to RE4, more of the survival horror approach. Chris is shown to use cover etc meaning his campaign seems to much more action orientated. The third unnamed character has a new type of gameplay - it seems to be survival but more of the escape type since he isn't carrying weapons and he's jumping and running a lot. I do hope that this time co-op won't spoil the game like it did in RE5. Co-op should be a separate game mode.
@Eamon But what was the point of adding varations of gameplay in a RE game which is always about survival horror. If they wanted to do this they should of made a new IP to do this idea. Leon is the one RE fans want while Chris's and the new guy just look ridiculous. Co-op should of never been in this game to start with, it will spoil this just like it spoilt RE5. No matter how many fans complained to Capcom it's like they just don't want to listen....funny that isn't it, most Japanese developers are like that, Square Enix is another fine example of how NOT to listen to your fanbase.
"The two biggest complaints about RE5 was the action focused approach and the co-op, yet they still have these two things in the game." I thought the two biggest complaints were 1) there weren't any zombies and 2) the game wasn't scary.
@kaveti6616 The focus on action and co-op hurt the action aspect of the game, as being alone surrounded by zombies is a lot scarier than being with a partner. When I saw the first part of the trailer I thought, "Okay, this might be better." Then they showed Chris and his team coming in from a helicopter and the new guy with his partner (Ashley?) acting like it was all more of an annoyance than a challenge (Dante?). I also checked again and it looks like even Leon might have a partner too, so instead of focusing on horror, CAPCOM's just tried to hide the stuff people complained about in 5 rather than fix it. It still has the potential to be a good game, but it looks like for survival horror you might want to cautiously check out Silent Hill: Downpour instead.
Leon's gameplay looked awesome! It looked really cool. I thought, wow, Capcom listened to their fans. It isn't action...Then Chris' gameplay started, and I was extremely disappointing. It looks like GoW, CoD and Max Pain. Then we have Mr. Melee, who...sigh.... It seems like Capcom didn't learn a thing. Not surprising since it is Capcom after all. I would have liked to have seen some other faces, other than Chris'. RE has a few characters that seemed to have just been thrown away. I would have liked to have seen them instead.
looks awesome! no one can deny this looks pretty sweet! although only thing we can drop the RE horror heritage i guess.
The only thing i missed was my excitement.. This looks really bad to me this should not even be a re game re4 was awesome re5 was kinda a let down but grew on me now we got mw3 with zombies WTF
after the trailer i concluded this will be another action game not a horror game nice try capcom
I must've missed the part where it's a Resident Evil game.
Looks freaking awesome ! and a rewind trailer so quick... awesome. Edit: Its not a rewind trailer :(
I'm just going to be the one to say it. The trailer looked f*cking sh*t. I am not impressed crapcom.
Not sure how many of the points they've made could actually be missed? They reference the mercenary but don't point out his apparent superhuman abilities? Or the fact that Leon's sections look more survival horror whilst Chris' seem to be more action packed? Anyone want to make them a 'Here's what you missed whilst looking for what people missed' article? But in all seriousness, the trailer looks like a cross between RE4 and 5 so it could be interesting - provided they strike a good balance. Oh and being able to move and s... You know the rest.
I really hope you can move and shoot this time, even if it's slowly.
So... RE6 is a prequel? since RE5 is in 2009 and they are saying RE6 is 10 years after the Raccon CIty outbreak.
Meaning 10 years after the events of the first game, so story-wise, the story in 6 is most likely between 4 & 5, I guess!!!!
resident evil revelation is in between 4 and 5, lets not forget the damanation movie where its rumoured to have chris in it with leon now as for re 6 * i like to call it 7 since i count code veronica and zero* could take place some months after 5 or a year just enough to call it ten years later
I Think who ever said that its 10 years after ether A. didnt know what he was talking about or B. thats what he thought at the time.
It does look promising based on what I see in the trailer. As long as there is no A.I. babysitting or co-op, I'll be looking forward to the final product. @below Thanks for the info. If that's the case, I'm wondering how they'll improve on the mechanics. I'm just not a fan of the idea that I'll have to directly depend on my partner, A.I or not.
The press release said there would be co-op bro
From what i have scene from previews of the 3ds game capcom has seemed to perfect the co-op so the second character on that game won't seem like a problem and won't use the same ammo and health, so hopefully that carries over to re6
There is co-op, Kobayashi confirmed it in the press release.
Con Artist Capcom are the kings of trailers i give them that. They make you want to buy the game off one trailer.
Why is everyone so against co-op? I freaking loved RE5 because of the online co-op.. Me and my best friend would play the crap out of 5 online and honestly it's some of my fondest memories from this generation..
Well the first part of the trailer got me excited, when I saw Leon with the zombie President, I was like "omg yayz!!!" then I reacted the same when I saw Leon shooting the zombies, but then it suddenly turned into a Michael Bay flick. It looks good no doubt about it, but I guess the survival horror we once knew as Resident Evil is no more.
Can't wait :), it looks like a good mix of action, but not being overpowering like in re5, so it seems like you actually have to survive the horror of zombies and such. This new game might be a return to form for resident evil and capcom
I'm just happy with chris' normal biceps.... He's not rocking 32 inchers like resi 5.
such a trivial point to be happy about... on topic: this looks highly ambitious. 3 different playable characters looks like it will provide depth to the gameplay. all i personally want is an engaging story and a lot of cheap scares along the way. on the plus side i think the graphics look amazing. especially when the train heading towards leon, the lighting there looks sweet
No, I agree with Joey.
Am i the only one here who misses the creepy old mansion and the brain dead zombie infested streets on the old RE games?.
Not just you man.
while its nice for nostalgia.... You do realize that has been done to death in the Re series. And Raccoon city has been a giant radiated hole since 1998. I just dont like them changing the way zombies are. In Re Zombies die by head trauma. Its way to easy to pull off headshots with the new gameplay. So now when you shoot a zombie in the head A)It will die instantly making it too easy, unless ammo is way way limited. B)it takes multiple shots, and breaks the anatomy weakness that they have created around the creatures. That said This is my most hyped game this year by far.
Well the idea is with zombies is that they are easy to kill, but they swarm you, so you're better off running then fighting. That's what they should be aiming for.
The 6 looks like a giraffe looking back
im soo hype... looking forward to this...
Hmmm well once one can accept the fact that RE has definitely changed from the old days and embrace the new direction it has taken, this actually looks like a potentially very good, fun game.
looks decent, its got Leon so it is already a step in the right direction but they should leave Chris out (never liked him). Although from some of the comments it seems there is coop which is still a step in the wrong direction =/ guess i'll have to wait for more info
I always liked Chris from RE1.
This is how u DONT listen to ur fans. Dead Space 3 has my money.
yup looks great sounds great
It started great. The city, the quote "it's like racoon city all over again". And then, a video of Gears of War re-skinned poped up and ruined everything.
So my prediction is correct, Gears of Evil 6.
My prediction Dead Space is the King of Action Horror now! RE needs to be a survival horror and go back to its roots.
Some of the scenes remind me of RE3 which is frickin' awesome!! Can't wait to see more.
yo some trippy stuff kinda like a flashback or a dream at 2:55 and then before it hits 2:56, i kno how tht sounds but yes i said at 2:55 but before 2:56, u gotta pause-unpause really quick to c it. check for yourselves.
but, can you move and shoot ?
also, bane shot at 2:11, oh and i think chris gets infected then becomes the bad guy.
i am glad it comes out before dec,21,2012. a month and 1 day before the end of the world
Nope i dont think i missed much the trailer was pretty meh.
This game is going to be bad as$
im the only one that sees that the new guy is in fact steve from code name veronica? Kidnapeed by wesker because is the only survivor with veronica virus? In this trailer he says they are after my blood.
^^^^ ding ding
except that Steve died in CV... Wesker recovered his body
RIP the resident Evil series. 1996 - 2000
Agreed. Crapcom has done it again. We WANT a survival horror title. Not Modern Warfare. It looks like they could not decide upon what direction to take for 6, and simply threw in everything into one jumbled mess of a game. For the record Co-Op is overrated and UN necessary. The fact that they included it here shows they didn't learn anything from the crapfest that was RE5. I will pass on this.
couldn't agree more. Resident Evil is dead in my eyes. 4 and 5 were dissapointments. I had a final hope to part 6 but nah. Capcom said it themselves that they want to bring COD-players to play Resident Evil.
People who come here to complain that its not old Resident Evil just go away yall have complained since RE3/CV, eaither enjoy it for what it is or stop trolling every board with the same comments. As to the people making comments about the bald guy, that is HUNK, note* he makes a comment about being a MERC, also Ashley Gramm (the presidents daughter from 4.) has clearly hired him because he has the abilites of Albert (so clearly he is one of the WESKER children) as his story has hinted to for years (as the man who cannot die.) and she is injecting him with the mix found in RE5 wesker used to keep his power in check.) That is why the comment about his blood and everyone wanting to get ahold of it. So, with this in mind there are three stories taking place: Leon in the rural city with that new female, Chris with the BSAA in china (though no word on Jill, Clair, or ADA) which if you watch the trailer Chris makes a comment about a FEMALE traitor. (assuming its Ada Wong, or a unknown character.) I hope more is flushed out as to the females of the series and whats happening to them, and with Mr.Burton also I like they have aged the characters more, and slimmed Chris Redfield Down. and Hunks voice and design seem to fit him, I think of characters like Neko Bellic, and Euro hitman films. Somethings I would like to see is perhaps the death of some characters, or Chris and Leon metting on screen for the first time. other then that I am stoked for this game, and cannot wait to play it.
NextGen RE games are not "Survival Horror" unfortunetly like most people I started of in the mansion back in 96 and followed the story since.. Now im screwed in to buying a action game just to follow the story when there are much better action games out there.. Loving Dark Souls atm closest thing iv played to a "survival horror" game for a long time..
Resident Duty 6
to me looks like Gears of Evil with a little Vanquish!!!
