Posted on January 24, 2012, Phil Hornshaw You Can Play Resident Evil 6 Co-op With As Many As Six Friends!
What’s that you say? Wandering through Resident Evil games with a friend or six is something you’ve wanted since the PSX era? Wait, no one has ever said that.
Yet that’s what we’re getting in Resident Evil 6, according to a list of features on Xbox.com, which details that the game will have six-player co-op and eight-player competitive multiplayer modes. Yup — shooting other people. Good thing, too, because the industry was running low on games like that.
Though Capcom says multiplayer will be a big component in the long-running survival horror series that has kind of turned away from being about either survival or horror of late, the company has also said we can expect RE6 to be a return to roots. With zombies, horror and survival, specifically. It’ll be interesting to see if they can get a survival-horror vibe to withstand having an entire tactical team of backup at all times.
