Capcom has announced that Resident Evil 6 is available to purchase across retail outlets throughout North America and Europe today.
Featuring four distinct, yet interwoven campaigns, Resident Evil 6 delivers terror on a global scale with the action moving from North America to Eastern Europe and China as the game’s seven main protagonists face a new horror, the C-virus, which threatens to wipe out the entire world’s population.
“With its four campaigns offering both single and co-op play either online or offline plus additional modes such as Mercenaries and Agent Hunt, Resident Evil 6 is the most ambitious and comprehensive title of the series,” commented Michael Pattison, Senior VP Marketing, North America and Europe. “Furthermore the promise of post-release content and ResidentEvil.Net show Capcom’s commitment to support RE fans for many months to come.”
Since the landmark release of the first Resident Evil video game in 1996, the franchise has established itself as an entertainment brand with a series of live action movies, CG anime, manga, novels and numerous merchandising lines. To date the Resident Evil series of video games has achieved global sales of over 50 million units.
Resident Evil 6 is available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version is coming at a later date.
