With the recent announcement of the first-person survival horror reboot Resident Evil 7, the online multiplayer Resi offshoot Umbrella Corps doesn't look so bad. Not that it does, it's just that people were clamoring for a proper Resi game. Out now for PC and PS4, Umbrealla Corps is a competitive third-person shooter where two teams fight for survival in maps teeming with the undead. Launch trailer after the jump.
The hook/blade-thing mechanics look pretty cool, as is the whole idea of zombies running around the map of a team-based shooter.
Today you can join the Umbrella Corps and face off against enemy mercenaries online in dangerous battlefields teeming with undead monstrosities. The 3 vs. 3 competitive third-person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe is available for digital download on PlayStation 4 and PC.
Umbrella Corps has a variety of maps drawing from different locales in the Resident Evil universe. The Resident Evil 4-themed map recreates the unforgettable Village, complete with dangerous Ganados armed with farm tools. The Raccoon City map allows players to fight it out on and below the streets as zombies wander everywhere.
Speaking of maps based on the RE series, today’s launch trailer includes a peek at free DLC offerings that will be available to players in the coming months. One map reopens the doors to the infamous Spencer Mansion, hosting intense firefights in its ornate interior. Another free map transports RE fans back to the infected and chaotic streets of Lanshiang, China, from Resident Evil 6. Rounding out the free DLC offerings is 4 Survivors mode – a free-for-all mode inspired by classic RE games where ammo, health, and decent lighting is in limited supply. Players battle one another to survive the longest in these dimly lit, more atmospheric versions of the maps in Umbrella Corps.
Umbrella Corps is available now on PC/Steam for $29.99 USD and the PlayStation Store for $44.95 AU.
