Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 6 Gameplay Video Preview - 10 Terrifying Minutes With Leon, Chris and Jake
Written By
View author's profile

Returning from the Gamescom hubbub, this time of year usually sees things quieting down a little bit, as we brace ourselves for an autumn and winter period packed to the rafters with games, games and more games. But thanks to our friends at Capcom, we've got some jaw-dropping Resident Evil 6 gameplay to share with you ahead of its October release.

There's a whole action-packed, zombie-tastic 10 minutes with the game's three protagonists, with more gameplay than you can shake a decaying undead appendage at. First, you'll get some time with Leon S. Kennedy and Helena Harper, then in the second video, you can have your eyes frazzled by some action from Chris Redfield and Piers Nivans' campaign.

Then, last but not least you'll get to see Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin fighting the hideously mutated J'avo hordes. So, settle down, get a spare pair of undies and kick back for 10 whole minutes of pure and unadulterated Resident Evil 6 terror. Don't look away!

Resident Evil 6 is out on October 2nd, 2012.

With every trailer I lose excitement for this game. I was so hyped for it, but now? I'm thinking of leaving it and pretending in my mind that Resident Evil went out on a high note.

Number #1 is spot on I'm afraid. I might well pick this up next year when it's a bit cheaper but for now I'm really not all that hyped to buy this on October 2nd

Still not liking how this looks. It just looks... Shitty, for lack of a better word. And, like I've said, not because they've gone back on there "This IS survival horror" promise, but because even as an action game, this still looks like crap. Guess I'll just replay 4 again...

Most anticipated game of 2012, no doubt about it.
And I already know it will be the most played game by me this year.
Especially with 4P Co-op Mercs Mode.
Only other games that could come close is Halo 4 (if the MP is good) AC3 & Borderlands 2 (depending on how long the campaigns are).

Looks like the last 2 resident evil games. They lied by claiming the real zombies were back and by saying thr horror was back. All I see is super zombies and action packed moments

Seems to be the same feeling amongst alot of people..i tend to agree as well. The first 3 games were scary and gave that feeling of being afraid with zombies loose..kinda like Dead space 1 did for me. Too bad though, cause i love the series and movies. Oh well, like someone else said, pick this up when its cheaper.

...? I've never played much RE, the only two I own are on the 3DS, but I actually really enjoyed Revelations. It wasn't to scary but I liked it. But now reading all the comments of people who have played these games before, I don't think i'll look into this one. It's sad because my first experience with this game was a positive one, but i'm starting to feel like not many people are interested in it anymore.

@Akatsuki Sensor: you were damn right about Dark Souls and you are again damn right about Re6.

I realy dont want to see any more RE6 stuff, in my opinion, they showed us way too much (trailers) of this game. I lost my excitement because of that.

I would like to see a "Re Zero + RE1 Remake (Gamecube) HD Edition" or a "Re1 Directors Cut + RE2 + RE3 HD edition" for the Xbox360 and PS3 > this would make me realy hyped.

@Dark Anaconda: REmake + 0 HD edition? You, sir, have a beautiful mind.

OT: Guarantee anybody if you just PLAY the damn game and give it a shot, it won't be as horrible as you're all making it out to be. With all the bitching going on, it sounds like you guys WANT this game to suck. Wait for the demo before passing judgment.

#19 I completely agree with u im so tired of people bitching all the damn time about games they haven't even played yet,resident evil if my fav game series and always will be and yeah #3 its not as scary as it used to be and 1 2 and 3 was awesome games but that's in the past,and really the reason why they where scary was cuz of the camera i hope they remake them with re4 style camera y i say that is cuz imo re4 was 1 of the best game of all time and 5 was not that bad either it just wasn't scary but it was fun and the story was good to,RE series has 1 of the best story's in any series Ive ever seen its like some1 else said in a comment from a different article its like a very long book the way i see it,if your a big fan of the series u will buy the game no matter what,and if u dont want it dont buy it its that simple stop complaining about it.

I agree with 22.. I have liked all of them, but in varying degrees. I think 4 is best out of the more recent titles, but I enjoyed 5 and played it extensively.

Yep gotta agree with 19 if this isn't what you want find something else. Action sells more games than horror plain and simple get used to it that's why Resident Evil and Dead Space are more action oriented now. And whenever something like Doom 4 ships it will have more action than horror just wait thats just how it is. Although a HD collection of RE 1+2+3 would be cool...

@28 I'm sure he meant RE5 and ORC and really think about it, people were mad when RE4 came out because there weren't real "zombies" in it and they could hit you with sickles and even operate chainsaws, but it turned out to be one of the best horror titles of all time. Who's to say RE6 wont be? And for those that are saying there bored with this game already because of all the gameplay videos, there are 4 campaigns all approximately 10 hours long(according to capcom probably more like 7) and 4 difficulties and if the bots are like Sheva then pro will take 15-18 hours to complete and theres mercenaries. 10 minutes of gameplay wont ruin it.

and yet the funny thing is how if the game stayed the same way people would be bitching on how " fuck capcom needs to step there game up and bring sum bigger badder scarier mosters to the game " gamers will never be satisfied no matter what direction a game goes, the problem is that people have such a high outrageous expantency for games that some of the most sick games get shit reviews because 1 asshole expected the game to be the next CoD or another 500$ million title, so hence he goes on the web and talks shit and rants and raves how terrible the game was when a few months down the road the same guy who passed on the game rents it and says' wow...this is actually pretty sweet wtf was that moron talking about' go figure.

i loved the RE games except for RE5 cuz of the daylight shit but only mode i like bout RE5 were the expantions and the Mercs/Mercs reunion lol.

i will be picking this up just for the sheer fact that now we can move and shoot at the same time, its about god damn time capcom.

only thing i hope with this is that there are gunna b some truly epic boss fights, awesome weaponry and a whole lot of nice female RE charecter booty lol " oh jill how i liked playing mercs with you in RE5 ' lmao

Looking forward to this game. RE was never scary (that title goes to Silent Hill out of these 2 well known survival horror franchises from the same era) and unless you played on hard mode you could always just blast through everything. Therefore I don't mind the fact that it's clearly about action now unlike what it was during the PS1 era. Just played through the much praised 1-3 and while they were awesome I can totally see why Capcom don't want to stay with games like that. Running from point A to B, then to C to finally get a key to open one door and finally back to A does get boring after some time...

I'm still a lot interested but Capcom has stupidly showed a lot, You must know when show a lot people loose interest, it's marketing. The content shown should be enough and beyond limit so people die to play it

I know What RE nostalgia is, I was a sucker for those games too but recently played RE CVX again, and I must say the setting was good but the controls and AI were terrible, I'm glad the RE evolved or it would have seen the same fate as Silent Hill and Fatal Frame. RE 4 is my most fav RE of all time, Re 5 was too shallow, Revelations is brilliant and Can't wait for this.

I don't hate a genre shift it's ok as long as it's awesome and fun to play I love the characters and premise and don't mind a good auction shooter now I just wish that camera angles and tearing get fixed and Jake's campaign is half as bad as it looks and Wishing that ADA campaign brings backs some RE 4 memories as it's single player my expectations are high.

And it's about god damn time shiow us the merceneries

I'm a huge fan of Resident Evil, have been since 1996 when it launched on the PS1 and Sega Saturn (both of which I own and have spare unopened copies of to this day). This series is far from dead or dying, that being said yes I agree that some of the magic that made Resident Evil is gone, that the over the top John Woo action and fight scenes turn some fans away from the series. Let's face it Resident Evil stopped being a true survival horror title at 2, and I can say that without a doubt. In the first game you had only a handgun, shotgun, grenade launcher if you were Jill the magnum and very little ammo for those. In two you had more weapons no shortage of ammo and even an infinite ammo cheat if you wanted to do speed runs to unlock HUNK and Tofu. There was very little in the scares department and all the open areas took away from the fear of being ambushed with no escape. Does that make it any less a great game? No. Same can be said of what they are doing now, if you look at the story itself this is actually a logical progression of events since the fall of Umbrella. Now bio organic weapons are more advanced, bigger even in some cases downright ludicrous. The more I see the more I anticipate this entry, hopefully some will agree with me but this is no way an insult to others opinions in this forum.

Mabye the soon to be realed demo can shead abit more light into how the game actualy plays and looks like, i loved the old RE games but the latest additions where rather..ermm awfull to say the least. But i check to demo out and mabye that brings around my mind about if this game is worth getting or not def with so many other good games coming like ACIII.

I enjoyed RE5, albeit largely due to co-op - I enjoyed the DLC too. But, the thing that bugged me about the game was the general lack of audible ambience and atmosphere, this is really needed in a horror survival game. Just like RE5, I doubt I'll buy on release but, when I can pick it up for half price.
