The latest issue of Famitsu has provided first details of an exciting new multiplayer mode for Resident Evil 6 that allows gamers to invade the world of another player and take control of the enemy! Unlike the Mercenaries mode of previous entries in the series, ‘Agent Hunt’ is integrated into the main campaign and only becomes available once you’ve cleared the game.
Only certain levels will support the Agent Hunt feature and you’ll be able to turn it on in the options menu if you’re keen to face some human-controlled adversaries. You’ll be alerted once someone invades your world but the game won’t highlight which enemy your opponent is controlling. Multiple invaders can even team up and communicate with each other via voice chat if they’re particularly serious about taking you down.
You can sample this intriguing, Dark Souls-inspired mode for yourself when Resident Evil 6 is released for PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 2nd worldwide. A PC version is expected at a later date.
