New York Comic Con is going down this weekend (starting tomorrow), and Capcom will be there to show off some of their upcoming games. One of them will be their newly announced Umbrella Corps. Today, they’ve dropped a new video for the game, showing off our first look at gameplay, as the developers go head-to-head:
Two squads from the development team in Capcom Japan duke it out in heated 3 vs. 3 competitive team battles in the third-person shooter’s One Life Match Mode. In this mode, players must defeat the opposing team in a fast and furious 3-minute time limit without any option to re-spawn.
Voice-over commentary from the team provides insight on some of the tactics used by the experts and spotlights the exclusive features specific to Umbrella Corps. Whether it’s aggressive firing, finding new paths by lifting shutter doors, utilizing the analog cover system, flanking the enemy in careful coordination, or carefully plotted sneak attacks from behind, each adrenaline-fueled match offers quick and satisfying competitive gameplay.
The video also shows off the non-traditional arsenal of weapons in Umbrella Corps that offer an exciting twist on the traditional gun and grenade loadout. The deadly “Brainer” melee axe can be charged up and used as a one-hit kill attack and the “Zombie Jammer” adds an extra variable to the mix. When this is intact, zombies will not attack, but if it’s damaged either by a calculated or errant shot, that player will become instant zombie fodder.
Switching up tactics on the fly will be the key to success! Attendees of New York Comic Con 2015, which begins tomorrow, can study up and put their skills to the test with the first North American demo of the game at the Capcom Booth #1420.
What do you guys think of the gameplay? Are you interested in getting some time with Umbrella Corps? The game will launch sometime next year for PCs and PlayStation 4.
