Capcom has released a first single gameplay video of Umbrella Corps, the upcoming third person shooter of Resident Evil game under the label that clearly guides to action multiplayer gameplay. Revealed in the Tokyo Game Show 2015, Umbrella Corps is the next spin-off of the Resident Evil series. Indeed, it is a TPS (Third Person Shooter) game in the same mold as Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, released a few years ago on PC and gaming consoles.
To get an idea of the grip Umbrella Corps, the Japanese publisher has released a gameplay video for nearly five minutes which shows a fight between Alpha and Bravo teams.
So this is a Team Deathmatch and 3 against 3 in a map but filled with zombies. However, the zombies do not seem very fierce and serve mainly to obscure the enemy visibility, or as a shield. The gameplay wants to be very nervous and the slightest misstep can be fatal, especially by means of hand-to-hand weapon.
Umbrella Corps is due for release early 2016 on PC and PS4, priced at 29.99 dollars. Watch the gameplay trailer of Umbrella Corps below:
Umbrella Corps is a competitive multiplayer shooter that features zombies. Players play as a mercenary from two different corporations, and they are tasked to co-operate with their fellow mercenaries to eliminate all the hostile players. Players can choose to play from a first-person perspective, or a third-person perspective.
The game’s maps are described as “compact battle zones” which have traditional historic Resident Evil themes and environments. The game features gadgets like semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, pistols, grenades and explosives, as well as unusual melee-weapons like Brainer combat axes. In order to travel between maps in an effective way, the game features repurposed climbing gear, as well as “Terrain Spikes”, which can be used for traversing tough ground. There are three classes available for players to choose, namely assault, short range and tactical. Each class is equipped with different weapons.
