TRAILER: ‘Umbrella Corps’ Is A ‘Resident Evil’ Shooter We’d Love To Sink Our Teeth Into
Umbrella Corps is a new fast-paced third person shooter set in the iconic Resident Evil universe. The competitive online game will feature quick, intense matches in compact battle zones themed from historic Resident Evil environments. The game utilizes the Unity engine developed by Unity Technologies. Umbrella Corps will be available digitally for an MSRP of $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and PC across North America and Europe in May 2016.
The game looks to be Playstation 4 and PC exclusive at the moment, but has an interesting angle having a shooter game placed within an outbreak. Basically, it looks like Capcom is taking cues from Treyarch’s Black Ops/Zombies model and trying to revamp sluggish sales of their Resident Evil franchise.
