Capcom and Valve recently announced the Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 project, bringing together characters from Left 4 Dead 2 in the forthcoming PC version of Resident Evil 6 and also enemies from Resident Evil 6 in the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. All content will be made available completely free for fans of either videogame to access and play, and will be available early next month.
Owners of Resident Evil 6 on PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s iconic cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries: No Mercy. Each character will have a special customised weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen.
Making the leap to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be some of Resident Evil 6’s most fearsome enemies – Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman. All three characters were brought to life in Left 4 Dead 2 by Valve’s renowned developers using its Steam Workshop tools. Owners of the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to face a new deadly challenge when Resident Evil 6 characters infect Valve’s classic zombie title this spring.
This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from 5th April 2013, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on both the Resident Evil and Left 4 Dead videogame franchises.
