Left 4 Dead 2 X Resident Evil 6 crossover revealed

Free promotion will make Left 4 Dead 2 characters playable in Resident Evil 6 and vice versa only on PC.

'

Capcom announced today a new free crossover promotion that will bring the characters and creatures from Left 4 Dead 2 to Resident Evil 6 and vice versa.

Left 4 Dead 2 heroes Coach, Ellis, Rochelle, and Nick will be available as playable characters in Resident Evil 6's PC-exclusive No Mercy mode.

In addition to the four Left 4 Dead 2 characters, two special infected zombies from Valve's game--the Witch and the Mini Tank--will appear in Resident Evil 6's No Mercy mode.

Resident Evil 6 for PC launches March 22, but the crossover content won't arrive until April 5. It will be automatically downloaded in the background, Capcom said.

Not only are Left 4 Dead 2 characters and creatures coming to Resident Evil 6, but the crossover will also work the other way around. Resident Evil 6 enemies Lepotitsa, Napad, and Ogroman will be available in Left 4 Dead 2 sometime this spring. Capcom said these enemies were created by Valve developers using Steam Workshop tools.

Images of the crossover promotion are available below.

What I'd give to hear Nick scream "TITS" every time he gets knocked down and stands back up.

That's awesome too bad it's only for the PC. Hey resident evil 6 haters; fuck off and actually play the game and stop being little GameSpot sheep and learn to form your own opinion. It's sad seeing how close minded people are. Think for yourself!!!

They really should have called Left for Dead 2 "Left 2 Die." 

And then they could have called this DLC "Left 2 Die in the 6th Residence of Evil" or something.

You know, I'm playing through RE6 right now. I really do not understand where all the vitriol and poor reviews stemmed from. I'm having fun with it.

That's kind of cool actually. At least in my opinion.

Will they have original voices in each game? Hope so.

That was the next logical step, since RE 6 feels a lot like Left 4 Dead.

That's actually awesome. I don't plan on buying RE6 but some new content for L4D2 is always welcomed.

I just hope the PC version of Resident Evil 6 will be better than the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 version of Resident Evil 6.

Things like this are what make me wanna buy games, developers.Not crappy, cheap, obviously held back ripoff bullshit like dinky little maps that are released within a week of the game.Ya hear that publishers? 


Oh and gamers, knock off the cynicism and stop buying that shit DLC.

Taking characters from a good game and putting them into a bad game doesn't make the bad game any better.................

Disapointed that they are only taking monsters from RE6 for L4D. I would quite like to play through a campaign as Leon

One of the biggest disappointments for me was that Claire was not in Resident Evil 6 anywhere I was hoping she would at least show up somewhere, I got my fill for Jill on Revelations but Claire hasn't been around since Code: Veronica

I kinda hate the exclusive stuff, whatever systems the game is for should have everything available to all to enjoy I'd buy Left 4 Dead 2 just to play as some of the Res characters but no cuz I don't have a PC.

Cool for RE6 a game where you actually see your character like any third person shooter. But useless for a fps game like lfd..... That's why i never like the idea of "costumes and skins" on fps games like borderlands 2 , a game where you NEVER get to see your caracter in motion.

This has got to be the most random thing I've ever seen. But hey, free stuff? Plus, it's free stuff from Capcom. C-A-P-C-O-M. Hell no I ain't turning this down.

people at capcom that are responsible in any way or form for making RE games....I shall repeat my hard core teaching course:

play RE 1..... ok now RE2 ..... ok now RE3....... ok now RE4.... do you see a pattern???

if not you F***ing retards, gratz.... don't make babies  and spare the world you inferior offspring, if i was your parent I would disown you for your shear stupidity.

Let's see.. this will probably attract 1733 more people to buy RE6 on steam. But I could be wrong.

This is a pretty good way to move copies of RE6 after all the bad press it got leading up to the PC release.

Not another cross over game.

The seventh generation of consoles was about making franchises more generic.

The eighth generation of consoles looks like it will be about crossovers games.

That way you can just have one generic game instead of multiple generic games.
