Resident Evil


 

Though things didn’t quite go so well the first time the company made such an attempt, Capcom is giving the idea of a Resident Evil-themed third-person shooter another go with the upcoming Umbrella Corps.

So, you know, this one came as a huge surprise—and given I played (and wasn’t so impressed with) Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, this announcement felt like a weird, unwanted one at first. After watching the trailer a few times, however, I’ve changed my mind somewhat. I’m still very cautious about this one, but who knows, second time could be the charm.

Here’s the game’s synopsis from Capcom Unity:

Umbrella Corporation, a ruthless international pharmaceutical company, had been known for its genetic experiments and biological weaponry that led to worldwide devastation including the infamous Raccoon City incident. Although the organization was brought down in 2003, its legacy of bio-terrorism continued. In the present day, corporations with nebulous interests in bio-weaponry have hired squads of special forces for experimental battles in restricted virus-infected areas against other mercenaries.

Watch the trailer above, see for yourself what you think, and let’s all wait to hear more about how the game is going to turn out.

Umbrella Corps has already been announced for release in North America and Europe in early 2016 for a MSRP of $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 for PS4 and PC.
