THE BUZZ: It seems information regarding the multiplayer options for Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 6 has appeared online, courtesy of Microsoft.
The title now has an official game page on xbox.com, and clicking on the overview yields a quick game description and a view of the game modes. In addition to two-player local co-op, the title includes online co-op for up to six, and online multiplayer for as many as eight zombie kicking buddies.
EGM’s TAKE: It looks like Capcom is giving fans a heaping helping of multiplayer this time around, which is awesome. But with Resident Evil 5 the co-op got in the way of single-player fun, thanks to some wonky AI for Sheva. Let’s hope the designers stepped up the game there and whomever your companion is, he or she shows at least as much intellingence as the creatures attacking you.
