The lights are on
Capcom has just dropped a mess of new screens and details about Resident Evil 6.
Below is an official FAQ from Capcom that details a number of questions we've all had about the game, which comes out on November 20 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with a later date for the PC version.
For more, check out the game's debut trailer and Tim's speculative dissection of its details.
It has already been revealed that Chris Redfield heads to China during the course of the game, but we can now confirm that the main location in China will be a fictitious coastal town called Lanshiang.
When does RE6 take place?
There has been some confusion surrounding when the game is set, so to set the record straight: Resident Evil 6 takes place in 2013.
Redesigned Control System
Resident Evil 6 features an evolved control system allowing players to shoot whilst moving; slide; roll in any direction and to take cover along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack.

This game is gonna be so freaking awesome. I pre-ordered it as soon as the announcement dropped and now I just don't wanna wait till November! I hope it doesn't get delayed. Please Capcom. Don't delay this.
I am of the belief that the third protagonist is non-other than the infamous HUNK. That guy has spent more time around the viruses (virusi?) than any other in the series canon. It only makes sense that he should be able to save world with his tiger blood.
I like the zombie from the second picture on the second row. "YEAHHH"
I am getting more and more excited for this game! ^_^
I love how no details of this game were released, until 10 months before release. I just remember waiting 2 or 3 years for RE5 since it was announced. This is just wonderful.
Love the RE series. Ready for this one to come out.
Man, I can't wait for Resident Evil 6 to come out.
It Seems Like Capcom's Creativity Is Still Intact.
This game sounds pretty intense, and the enemies seem like they'll be a force to be reckoned with even in small numbers.
Can't wait for this! RE is one of my favorite series' of all time!
Can't wait for this! I'm such a huge fan of the Resident Evil series, I can't believe they kept this secret all this time. I'm excited for November!
i can't wait!
Holy Schnikes, regenerators on steroids. That'll be fun.
J'avo sound like an interesting new addition.
ooohhhhh so excited
YES YES YES!!!
