Resident Evil 6 Campaign Gameplay - A Taste of Leon, Chris and Jake

We sat down with an early build of Resident Evil 6 to bring you a taste of Leon, Chris and Jake's campaigns.

With less than a month to go until Resident Evil 6 hits physical and digital shelves, the excitement among fans is approaching fever pitch. Luckily, we recently got a chance to sit down with an advanced build of the game showcasing over 20 hours of gameplay, across the three starting campaigns. So naturally, we hit the record button on our handy gameplay capture box and got to work! Here's a taste of the action from each campaign, featuring old friends Leon and Chris, as well as newcomer Jake.

Warning: While we've done our best to keep these clips spoiler-free, if you want to come to the game completely fresh on launch day, then viewer discretion is advised.

So have these gameplay clips left you hungry for more Resident Evil 6? Let us know in the comments.

Anyone know if a weapon upgrade system will be included like in RE4 or RE5? Really don't know what to make of this one, just finished the Demo and...erm...it's ok I guess, I mean its a demo so i'm sure a few things will be tweaked and played with before release, for me though, this franchise lost it's charm quite some time ago, we'll see in a a few weeks I suppose.

FFS just remake RE 1 and 2 and 3 with bigger locations, but basically the same story and great graphics 

 

FFS OMG WHY CAN'T THEY GET IT OMFG

Something that could really benefit the gaming industry: Stop calling the single player a "Campaign" every time, and maybe it will get into the heads of developers enough to stop turning everything into a shooter.

Oh Man this game is freaking disappointing to me :(

 

cuz i played the demo and i was excited about it but; Honestly, i don't really know what happened to me after i played all the campaign... i feel there is no fun in this game without " Albert Wesker " In It :( 

 

RE5 & RE4 was Amazing :)

 

Man, They lost one of the major character in resident evil series.

I'll start being interested in Resident Evil games again when they go back to being Resident Evil games and not just some generic B grade shooter with Resident Evil located somewhere on the boxart. If I wanted to play a shooter I would pick one of the many better options already on the market.

I tried going into this game with an open mind, but I'd be lying if I didn't feel that Chris's campaign looks like yet another generic, uninspired, and bland as hell military shooter that we've already seen a million times in a million other games by now.

The camera angle seems really awkward, and I really don't like the hud at all, I heard you could turn it off but why does it seem like there turning it in to more of an arcady type game, and the running animations seem really floaty and weird and its looks as if it controls in a really finicky way.

Have a feeling it will be a short campaign.

Personally RE4 was the best RE game i've played. The atmosphere, gameplay and the survival horror aspects of the game was made to its best. I am not sure about this one though.

i just sat down to play the demo of this, and my Jake campaign is broken!  i know that sounds stupid, but no matter which character i choose or which controller i use, the character won't stop running into the wall rather than run forward.  i can get them to run a little bit, but then every time i let go of the stick they run at a right angle to the wall and it's like trying to drive a car when your power steering goes out.  anyone else have this problem on the PS3 demo?

I hope that this game comes to playstation vita someday, I mean this series should be coming to this sexy handhed soon.

The amount of screen tearing in this game is ridiculous.

the resident evil remake one the gamecube is still probably the best resident evil game around I'm hoping the return of multiple protagonists might make this one better than six currently it looks like I might enjoy the leon and jake campaigns, will definitely enjoy the ada campaign but will hate the chris campaign with a passion, just wish they'd go back to RE4 or even earlier when things were more open world and investigation than a dull progression of linear levels.

racoon city was shockingly bad, i dont think i can bring myself to give another nickle to this over blown franchise even if this version is a big improvement over the previous games.

Played the demo that came with Dragon's Dogma... it's actually better than I'd thought it'd be. There's genuine moments of fear in this game even if it seems very action oriented. RE4 was probably my favourite, with RE3 just behind, but I wish they'd stop pairing you up with a partner. It would definitely be a much better game without a partner.

I haven't watched these yet but facing the J'avo freaks me out a bit already. I feel I am already used to the way the game is in its alternative horror feel but I am looking forward to at least some bits of  classic horror. I have Resident Evil 1 2 3 and 4 to enjoy. I just need fit graphics and engine to go with the efforts to make an existing familiar feel to the franchise of this game

Personally RE3 was my favorite, RE4 and RE5 had terrible controls with aiming, hope this will be better..

If anything needs a franchise reboot it's RE. The franchise hit its peak with RE4 and since then it has slowly begun to go downhill. If RE wasn't such a big earner for Capcom I'd recommend they step away from the franchise for 2-3 years then reboot from the start and launch on a next gen console which has already had perhaps 1-2 years under its belt.

 @swyg True Fact my friend ,

 @Simulator_Shock Im more interested in the classic and less linear zombie shooting and thats on Leons campaign....Jakes seems interesting enough...Chriss? umm...Last on my playable character list probably 

Simulator_Shock

I'm not looking forward to playing his campaign is what I'm saying.

 @JJB03 I felt the same way, its just the way how the characters move around looks and feel so unnatural and floaty.

 @kevindm215 I believe each campaign is supposed to be a little under RE5 length-wise. Don't quote me on that.

 @TopGunnas i agree on that one .. but . .. hey capcom didnt actually made that game  right ?

 @KnightSparda yah I hate that, I loved how in old RE games monsters and zombies where very cool and hard to fight, but now they give them guns and RPGs to make the game more shoot-y :P

bah anyways I stopped playing RE after RE4 which was pretty good.

irishdude199210

 @KnightSparda

 Yeah... I know... In the demo I played Chris called it a 'Stage 5' mutation, so maybe they're just people that are like... insane or under somethings control etc. Either way it sucks and they're not really zombies anymore. If this game had the same gameplay it has now but with more old style zombies, it'd be alot better. At least leon's campaign has oldschool zombies.

 @tomo90 I wouldn't mind seeing that happen, I'm looking forward to seeing how this pans out and I think this might be a step for Resident Evil since 5 but restarting from scratch could give them the opportunity to straighten out the story, and go back to its original survival horror roots that everyone has eagerly been asking for.

 @Simulator_Shock with bullet sponges of enemies that a bullet to the head seems not to stop them...yeah that campaign seems lame

 @RabidBurp  @Minishdriveby Has nothing to do with the hardware, but everything to do with crappy development. Just take a look at the E3 gameplay footage for "The last of us".

 @ALX_Kryzt it sucked just like all resident evil games these days, as well as short as hell i got about 5 hours out the last game and the multiplayer sucked, it was a complete waste of money.

 @JJB03  @tomo90  Personally i think RE2 is the best.  Not only for the campaign and the way the game played but being able to swap disks and play the other characters campaign was a great idea.  Also make the game twice as well.

 

The Remake of the first RE for the gamecube was excellent.  This game badly needs to break away from the third person action game is changed into and return to it's survival horror roots.  You, maybe one other, alone with very little resources fighting huge odds. 

 

Maybe a reboot is the best way to return to this?
