We're getting the first solid reports of what to expect in Resident Evil 6.
And the biggestnews about the game so far is its two-player cooperative play mode. This means players will be allowed to share the epic adventure and bone-tingling horror with a friend as they work together to fend off a zombie apocalypse and get to safety.
According to new details about the game, there will also be online support for up to six players through Xbox Live or the Playstation Network.
There has been no official release date announced for the title yet, but it should launch some time in 2012.
Resident Evil is one of the longest-lasting video game franchises for the mature, adult crowd, with its tantalizing mix of horror, blood, and incredible story.
The previous entry, Resident Evil 5, not only lived up to its popularity but also gained headlines for its seemingly intentional controversy mongering.
RE5 took place in Africa, where all the zombies were black. Some took issue with the fact that players spent an entire game shooting and killing droves of black people, while controlling a white character.
It remains to be seen if Resident Evil 6 will try to punch any sort of controversy, but nevertheless it should be an exciting game.
