Resident Evil 6 is to get a new mode to accompany the fast and frenetic Mercenaries Mode, turning the tables on the game's heroes for 'Agent Hunt Mode', in which you get to play as a virus-addled creature and take down Leon, Chris and co.
The new mode is detailed in the latest issue of weekly Japanese games mag Famitsu, revealing that it's integrated into the main game and unlocked once you've cleared the story. Mercenaries will be available immediately in Resident Evil 6 and upon completing the game, you'll be able to set some of the stages to Agent Hunt Mode.
Using voice chat to communicate and plan out your tactics, you'll spawn into the stage as a bio-organic weapon or a zombie, at which point you can team up to tackle a single player. When players enter the stage as a creature, the player will be alerted, but they won't know which is human-controlled.
Sounds like an intriguing twist for Mercenaries Mode. You'll be able to give the new Agent Hunt Mode a spin when Resident Evil 6 launches worldwide on October 2nd, 2012.
