The newest addition to the Resident Evil franchise, titled Umbrella Corps, is a multiplayer-based survival horror shooter and it’s supposed to be releasing in just a couple months. Just recently, Capcom announced yet another game mode for the upcoming spin-off, called Multi-Mission mode. You can view the trailer below, which shows off the new game mode gameplay.
In the Multi-Mission mode, each round is timed for three minutes where teams of six compete against each other to complete different objectives that are assigned to them. According to Rely On Horror, the objectives are listed as follows:
Target Hunter – One target will be chosen per team and only killing that target will count towards the score. Players can choose whether to focus on protecting their own target or aggressively attacking the enemy target.
Respawn Match – Team deathmatch featuring respawns. Take advantage of the on-screen sound radar map to locate the enemies’ random respawn points.
Domination – Secure the specified data transmission point located within the stage for a longer time than the enemy team in order to win.
DNA Hunter – Kill zombies and collect their DNA samples. Destroying the opposing team’s Zombie Jammers is a key strategy in this mode.
SP DNA Hunter – Kill the special mutated zombies and collect their DNA samples. They are particularly tough and immune to the effects of the Zombie Jammer. It’ll take teamwork to bring these creatures down.
Collector – Teams battle it out to see who will be first to collect all 5 briefcases in the stage.
Protector – Find the briefcase and hold it for as long as possible, while fending off the opposition. The player who has it will become a moving target, so teams must work together effectively.
Collar War – Collect the battle data “collars” of downed enemy players, and pick up allies’ collars to prevent the enemy team from getting points.
The point of this new mode is to introduce a number of different things players can do during gameplay so that they are never bored. Plus, when you add in a dose of competition into the mix, things can get heated and intense very quickly. What would a multiplayer game be without heated competition?
From a personal standpoint, I’m still not sure how I feel about a multiplayer-based Resident Evil game, but I am interested to see how players will react. I feel like the time for shooters has passed and that video games today have more of an emphasis on the indie market and narrative impact, but I also think there will always be a crowd for shooters. And with how popular the Call Of Duty zombie game modes are, you can’t blame Capcom for wanting to bring something in that realm to the gaming industry. I’ll be interested to see how it does when it releases and how players respond.
Umbrella Corps will be releasing in May of this year onto PS4 and Microsoft Windows.
