Zombie fan? Good, because Capcom and Valve teamed up for a free Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 Crossover.

But what is about? Here’s the press release:

Capcom and Valve are pleased to announce the Resident Evil® 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 project. This crossover project between two of the interactive entertainment industry’s most respected publishers will see characters from Left 4 Dead™ 2 featured exclusively in the forthcoming PC version of Resident Evil® 6, while enemies from Resident Evil 6 will invade the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. All content will be made available completely free for fans of either game to access and play.

Owners of Resident Evil 6 PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s iconic cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries No Mercy. Each character will have a special customized weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen. This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from April 5.

Making the leap to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be some of Resident Evil 6’s most fearsome enemies – Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman. All three characters were brought to life in Left 4 Dead 2 by Valve’s renowned developers using its Steam Workshop tools. Owners of the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to face a new deadly challenge when Resident Evil 6 characters infect Valve’s classic zombie title this spring.

Commenting on the crossover project, Chet Faliszek from Valve stated: “We’re huge Resident Evil fans, so when the opportunity arose to work directly with Capcom to combine L4D2 and RE6, we jumped at it.”

Resident Evil 6 Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi added: “The Resident Evil 6 team really enjoyed working on this crossover, and we’re confident that our fans will have a great time with it too! We hope you enjoy this unique content.”

And here’s the dev diary from Resident Evil 6 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi.

We were hoping for something way more exciting, but still, this is kinda cool anyway. But what about all the console players? Both games are either on PC and consoles!

New polygonal EX3 costumes available for Resident Evil 6

31 Jan

We know that Resident Evil 6 does not meet the taste of many of you out there, probably for its lack of survival horror attitude that has always (till the 3rd one) marked out the series. But despite all the criticisms, we like it and we actually play it, a lot.

An awesome feature about this new installment of the series are the online events held by ResidentEvil.NET: weekly or monthly events very well organized by Capcom guys and that offer plenty of unlockable items and various stuff for the game.

One of the latest events, called Zombie Mayhem, was driven by one simple rule: just KILL EVERYTHING AND EVERYBODY! But the partecipation prizes were even better: “If the target (15m zombie kills across all players) is met, all participants will be able to unlock one EX3 costume of their choice. Unlocks will be awarded at the end of January.”

Guess what? Today is January 31, and finally the all-new (well, not properly new) costumes are available to download for those who partecipated in the online event. Let’s take a look at them in all their retro polygonal beauty!

Cool, aren’t they? Unfortunately all partecipants are able to unlock just one of them…so, which one are you gonna take?
