A new multiplayer mode called Agent Hunt has just been announce for Resident Evil 6. This mode let's you place as one of the monsters in the game with a simple objective of trying to take out the main characters. Now with this now included in the game, there's no doubt in my mind that I'll be getting Resident Evil 6. Who doesn't want to invade and mess up another player's game?
When I read the report from Andriasang, I was all of a sudden excited buy this game. This was the push I needed to join the hype wagon for Capcom's upcoming Resident Evil. Agent Hunt Mode is pretty much Left4Dead's Versus mode mixed with Dark Souls' realm invading feature. To unlock Agent Hunt mode in Resident Evil 6, the player is required to finish the game at least once.
Multiple players can enter a player's game and team up to plan strategies to take them out. Players playing the main characters will be informed that another player has taken control of a monster, fun part is they don't know which one. So it brings the game's difficulty a bit unpredictable and gives the game a lot of replayability. Well, if they balance it properly that is.
If this is Resident Evil 6's multiplayer mode, I'm all for this. Resident Evil 5's online features were a waste of space on the disc so hopefully they scrapped all those competitive modes and just focus on fine tuning Agent Hunt Mode.
Gameplay footage of Agent Hunt Mode was just released.
Ada Wong was also announced to be playable having her own campaign. She won't have a partner, and will show yet another perspective in the game's story. Gameplay footage can be found below.
Resident Evil 6 is out on October 2 for Playstation 3, and Xbox 360. The PC version is planned for a release after the console versions.
