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.

Ahhh, November is way too far away. At least ORC comes out soon. Looking forward to that one too.
This was the trailer in screens, nothing that cool, I guess
I hope this doesn't get delayed too long on PC.
How Resident Evil 5 should of been, I could give 2 *** about Uroboros and Majini.
Hm. Sounds like it will be fun. Maybe a little less action heavy than Resident Evil 5 was. It was still good, but I would have preferred a little more horror.
Looks awesome, but moving whilst shooting...
I can't wait to start mowing down zombies as Chris.
Pretty excited for this.
this is one of my anticipated games for 2012 re5 was great re6 is going to be amazing.
I'm so excited for Resident Evil 6!
High fives for shooting while moving!
Finally, it appears Resident Evil 6 will control like a video game.
Resident 6? Amazing :D.
Another girl Villian?
First Alexia then Excella and now Jessica. Wow I'm empressed. Exella was still my favorite.
Reisdent evil 6 should just have Jill. It would make my year. She is the most amazing Resident Evil Character.
The screens are gorgeous. And the details were great to hear! I'm happy RE6 is happening at RE5 and sticking with a continuation.
Awesome, hopefully this will rejuvenate the franchise in terms of Horror LOL. No more Chris and his inhuman boulder punching :s. The redesign on the controls is welcome and much needed, and this J'avo enemy type seems like it could add some depth to the combat.
It wouldn't be RE without grotesque arms
