While fans wait for the still unannounced Resident Evil 7, Capcom is working hard to keep the enormous franchise front of mind. HD remakes of Resident Evil and Resident Evil 0 have been keeping players busy. Resident Evil Revelations 2 has given them something new to enjoy.

This May, the franchise will go in a direction that hasn’t been terribly kind to it in the past. Umbrella Corps takes cues from the imperfect Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.

While Umbrella Corps is designed as a multiplayer shooter, it will support a single-player mode called “The Experiment.” There will be more than 20 missions that play out similar to a horde mode with objectives. 

Capcom has also announced that the village from Resident Evil 4 and the Tricell organization from Resident Evil 5 will both be included as playable locations. Those maps will also feature location-specific computer-controlled enemies, including Ganados from RE4 and Cerberus dogs from RE5.

Umbrella Corps is priced at $30 and will be a digital-only game. It’s currently planned for PlayStation 4 and PC. For more on the team-versus-team-versus-zombies title, check out our most recent preview.
