Resident Evil 6: Play as a Zombie

If playing as Ada Wong is not enough for all Resident Evil fans then Capcom is giving you more. Now gamers will be able to play as zombies in the upcoming Resident Evil 6. In the newly announced Agent Hunt mode, you will be able to play as the J’avo or other C Virus mutations.

Agent Hunt Mode is a multiplayer mode which will pit players against each other, but you get to play as zombies. As a ‘hunter’ players will be able to infiltrate other players’ sessions with the aim of eliminating the human characters.  As a hunter, players will have access to the unique movements and attacks of each of the enemies, including those of the various J’avo transformations.

So how does Agent Hunt Mode work?
  • Complete the main campaigns for either Leon, Chris or Jake to then unlock the Agent Hunt stages for each of those respective campaigns
  • When creating an RE6 gameplay session a player has the option to allow/not allow Agent Hunt
  • When a hunter searches for a session to join they will see whether or not other players from around the world want to allow hunters into their game
  • The hunter then picks another player’s session to join and jumps into that session
  • Please note only certain stages will be available for Agent Hunt sessions
  • The agent side can be either a single human player with an AI partner, or two human players in co-op mode. Up to two separate hunters can join an Agent Hunt session. When a hunter dies they respawn in the same session as a different random enemy from that area.
  • If the hunter eliminates the agent then they will be taken to a ‘hunt successful’ results screen where they can join another session if they wish.
  • If the agent is eliminated then their game session will end exactly as if they had been playing a standard game session with CPU enemies.
  • If the hunter quits the session then the agent’s game continues as normal with all AI enemies.
Look for Resident Evil 6 on October 2nd on Xbox 360 and PS3 with a PC version coming out later. Also, check out the trailer showing off some of the new mode.
