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.

sounds like theyve taken care of a lot of things that made 5 not so good. as long as theres no *** sheva
hell yes for running zombies, and for whoevers against the idea, shut up. would you really want dumb, slow moving, predictable zonmbies in a video game?? no, it would get repetitive and boring quick.
They couldve set this game in frickin candyland for all I care, as long as I get to run and gun without stopping. I hated stopping to aim, it evoked frustration instead of fear.
Capcom and there damn teases are driving me crazy. I saved all those screens =D
Its amazing how Capcom is using this game as a cashcow.
Cant wait... 4 was my fav, but if they can incorporate new movesets to the creepiness of the early ones while keeping the co-op from 5 this could be a new contender for that title. Here's hoping they nail it out of the park. Definately one of my must haves this year.
I just pre-ordered this! It looks awesome. The best of four and five combined plus new stuff. I hope that there is a mysterious stranger in this game with a thousand pounds of weapons hidden in his trench coat. "What are ya buyinn?"
A thought just occurred to me. In the trailer for Resident Evil: Damnation, at the very end, Leon sees someone. He says "...it's you!!!"
Maybe this guy is that same guy that will be in Damnation? Damnation takes place in Eastern Europe after all. Maybe Damnation will come out this summer as a lead in to RE6, the way Degeneration was a lead-in to RE5.
So they are taking away the slow and cautious gameplay and turning it into an action/shooter? Basically, it seems like it's becoming less of a survival horror and becoming more like Gears of War, like a few other games have done with their control/pacing.
Shooting and Walking?! SHOOTING AND WALKING!
I don't think I care about the rest, I mean a Resident Evil game where you can shoot and walk? That's like the advancement of the decade!
