Press that attended Capcom's 2012 Captivate event in Rome recently were able to get the first look at Resident Evil 6 in action. Unfortunately we weren't among them, but we do have the next best things: a release date and a new trailer. The game has now been earmarked to ship globally on October 2nd 2012 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version "to follow".
Resident Evil 6 portrays a world where an escalation in bioterrorist attacks across the globe has led to widespread fear among the population. In an attempt to quell the panic and curb the bioterrorist activity the President of the United States has decided to speak to the nation but not before the very location of the address itself comes under attack. With the President’s safety compromised the situation for the rest of the world seems hopeless.
You can watch the dreamy Leon S. Kennedy in action in today's new trailer embedded below (or here for the HD video page), which features near-on three-minutes of what appears to be in-engine cut-scene footage and possibly some gameplay.
