Resident Evil 6, Left 4 Dead 2 mash up not on consoles

In the most surprising and unlikely gaming mash-up in recent months, we can confirm that Capcom and Valve are teaming up on a cross-game Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 project. Owners of both games will now be able to play as the other franchise’s characters respectively, but it appears that this exciting revelation is only going to be available on PC – not console.

This has come out of nowhere it seems, with no rumors sneaking out prior to the announcement which is almost unheard of in today’s industry. Starting from April 5 though, Capcom has said that Resident Evil owners will be able to play as Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle from Left 4 Dead 2, in the The Mercenaries No Mercy mode which is exclusive to PC.

Meanwhile, owners of Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to take on some of the villains that featured in Resident Evil 6, villains that have been created by Valve using the Steam Workshop. The Left 4 Dead 2 Resident Evil 6 update will be happening sometime in Spring, but best of all – both are going to be completely free to enjoy which is fantastic.

What isn’t so good news, is the fact that this appears to be exclusive to PC gamers only. That means that Xbox 360 owners with a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 6 will miss out, while PS3 fans are certainly going to be left off the left as well considering that the Left 4 Dead series hasn’t even made it to Sony’s console yet.

Whether it is cross platform or cross game initiatives, we would love to see developers do a lot more of this in the future, especially with the shift over to next-generation consoles. We’ve seen the likes of Kingdom Hearts, Marvel vs Capcom, Street Fighter X Tekken to name a few – but what other dream mash-up games can you think of, that would be great to see in the future?

What about a Marvel Vs DC game?that would be pretty interesting to do. Let us know your thoughts on the upcoming RE6 and Left 4 Dead 2 crossover.
