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.

While Chris's story looks like more RE5 Action Horror with more Explosions and guns against bigger enemies.

Cover/ Slide System
Note - It seems that there's enemies that pull you out of cover.

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.

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.

ABizzel12467d ago

It looks like you'll be playing as Leon single Player and Chris co-op to me.

Cloudberry2467d ago

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.

sikbeta2467d ago

RE6 will grow from RE5, but not from RE4, but at least Leon is back, going to buy it, looks far better than RE5...

Solid_Snake372467d ago

Yeah cos Chris ran smooth as a tank in RE5

wallhugging coversystem will be in every game from now on

PamPoovey2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

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.

Eamon2468d ago

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.

PamPoovey2468d ago


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.

kaveti66162468d ago

"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.

Tuxedo_Mask2467d ago (Edited 2467d ago )


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.

lizard812882467d ago

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.

I must've missed the part where it's a Resident Evil game.

Jovahkiin2468d ago (Edited 2468d ago )

Looks freaking awesome ! and a rewind trailer so quick... awesome.

Edit: Its not a rewind trailer :(

Trainz2468d ago

I'm just going to be the one to say it.
The trailer looked f*cking sh*t.
I am not impressed crapcom.

DrunkDan2468d ago

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.

Pintheshadows2468d ago

I really hope you can move and shoot this time, even if it's slowly.
