Resident Evil 6 to cross over with Left 4 Dead 2
Characters from their respective games to appear in the other zombie title
Capcom and Valve have announced the Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 crossover project.
This crossover project between two publishers will see characters from Left 4 Dead 2 featured exclusively in the forthcoming PC version of Resident Evil 6, while enemies from Resident Evil 6 will invade the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. All content will be made available completely free for fans of either game to access and play.
Owners of Resident Evil 6 PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries No Mercy. Each character will have a special customized weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode.
Making the leap to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be some of Resident Evil 6’s enemies – Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman. All three characters were brought to life in Left 4 Dead 2 by Valve using its Steam Workshop tools.
Resident Evil 6 was released on consoles last year and set to debut on PC this month.
