Andriasang reports that Resident Evil 6 will include an online mode that allows players to take on the role of a zombie. During the “Agent Hunt” mode players will be able to enter the actual game of another person through the internet. Players will then assume the part of a zombie with the goal of taking out the human-controlled agent. The agents have a decided advantage over the zombies, so the different human-controlled zombies will have to work together to surround and trap the agents. Zombie players will be able to communicate in a separate chat session that cannot be heard by the agent players. Resident Evil 6 will arrive on Xbox 360 and Play Station 3 on October 2, 2012 and on PC at a later date. The game’s main campaign focuses on Resident Evil series regulars, Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield, as they travel across the globe, combating a new zombie virus outbreak and the mysterious Neo-Umbrella Corporation.
