Survival horror could be alive and well after all.
Resident Evil 6’s announcement and subsequent trailers have come under plenty of scrutiny from fans and the general gaming public. However, if you are more curious as to how the game looks, feels and plays rather than the snapshots provided in trailers, Capcom has released two ten-minute playthrough clips. While the running-and-gunning action and explosive set pieces may feature prominently at times, these clips show that there is another side to the game as well.
Resident Evil 6 will be released on PlayStation 3, PC and Xbox 360 on October 2nd. Capcom has stated that it aims to “deliver the most impressiveResident Evil title ever both in terms of scope and production values.” Time will tell. Until then, take a look at the gameplay footage and see what you think.
