Umbrella Corps Brings Fast Paced Competitive Third Person Shooting To The Resident Evil Universe

Today at the Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia Press Conference 2015 in Tokyo, Capcom announced Umbrella Corps, a new fast-paced third person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe. The competitive online game will feature quick, intense matches in compact battle zones themed from historic Resident Evil environments. The game utilizes the Unity engine developed by Unity Technologies. Umbrella Corps will be available digitally for an MSRP of $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99 on PlayStation 4 and PC across North America and Europe in early 2016.

Umbrella Corporation, a ruthless international pharmaceutical company, had been known for its genetic experiments and biological weaponry that led to worldwide devastation including the infamous Raccoon City incident . Although the organization was brought down in 2003, its legacy of bio-terrorism continued. In the present day, corporations with nebulous interests in bio-weaponry have hired squads of special forces for experimental battles in restricted virus-infected areas against other mercenaries.

Dark Storm: Ascension Is Aiming To Take Out The Top Dogs Of The Stealth Action Genre

A couple of months ago we shared the exciting news that Fenrir Studios is currently developing Dark Storm: Asecension, a stealth action game set in an open world scifi universe. There’s no denying that the team was heavily inspired by AAA franchises like Metal Gear & Deus Ex, however this indie underdog promises they’ll be delivering a title that’ll rival any of their stealth action competitors. Based on everything I’ve seen thus far, they’re preparing to choke the life out of the competition.

Where a lot of games within the genre feel as if they’ve simply wrapped a new story around the same gameplay mechanics, its clear that Fenrir Studios doesn’t have that luxury so they’re building it all from the ground up. However they’ve started with a phenomenal foundation, everything about Dark Storm is being built around an original and beautifully written story. There isn’t any question to me that it’s the story and the characters within in it that have shaped the game so far and will continue to do so through development, they’re creating an immersive experience that you won’t want to put down. And that’s the way it should be…

However in order for Fenrir Studios to achieve their vision and deliver the game that we all deserve, they need our support on Kickstarter to get it done right.

Still trying to figure out how this upcoming indie title could possibly have, the critically acclaimed industry veteran, Kojima shaking in his Solid Snake pj’s?
