Resident Evil 6 gets November 2012 release date & debut trailer

By Updated on

Resident Evil 5 was a massive step in the right-direction for the franchise when it was released for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC back in 2009, now we can confirm that Capcom is releasing Resident Evil 6 this year and we have the reveal trailer for you to check out.

Currently Capcom has set November 20, 2012, as the game’s global release date for Xbox 360 and PS3, a PC release is also expected at a later date, but currently we have no further indication as to when it will arrive – hopefully 2012, but nothing’s guaranteed.

At the bottom of this page we have embedded the game’s first-ever trailer, as soon as it starts you are reminded of the atmospheric feel which the Resident Evil series is known for, the dramatic soundtrack helps build the tension and the heavy breathing coming from Leon S. Kennedy’s mouth also adds to this, you then hear a public figure talking about bio-organic weapons being a global threat. Later on in the trailer you get to see that the president is infected and Leon battling it out with 90% of the population of Tall Oaks who are also infected, once again the game adopts the third-person perspective and we see glimpses of some very formidable enemies.

The gameplay graphics look great, but the cinematics aren’t quite as impressive, rather than describe everything we have seen in the video we recommend that you scroll down the page a little and check it out for yourself. Whilst Leon battles it out in Tall Oaks it looks like you will also play as Chris Redfield as he takes on zombies in China.

Capcom has stated that more videos will arrive in the coming months, hopefully this will give us a better glimpse of the weaponry at your disposal, the multiplayer aspects of the game and different characters you will be able to play as – we will keep you posted as we see and hear more.

Will you buy Resident Evil 6 based on the impressive trailer below? This could be the last Resident Evil game on current-gen consoles, so we doubt you will want to miss out!
