The sixth title in the Resident Evil franchise features four characters and four storylines that interweave along the game. Three of these characters are former Resident Evil favorites Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and Ada Wong. They are joined by the newcomer Jake Muller in their horror story concerning the dangerous C-virus. Follow the narrative through four different campaigns as it takes you from North America to Eastern Europe and China. Face the horrors together with up to three friends via the new crossover mechanic that allows you to play the storylines together at certain points. The popular Mercenaries mode is also back again for the players to enjoy.
