Capcom has released a new trailer for Umbrella Corps, its upcoming third-person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe.

The video, which you can below, shows a Raccoon City that has descended into chaos, with teams of agents battling over biological samples as infected zombies indiscriminately attack both sides.

The video also showcases some of the different gameplay modes that will be available in the game. Among these is Multi-Mission, a 3-on-3 mode that provides multiple "unique ways to play."

We're also given a look at some of the locations the action takes place over, such as Resident Evil 2's Raccoon City, Kijuju from Resident Evil 5, and the Spanish village from Resident Evil 4.

"The Raccoon City map features wide open city streets contrasted against a claustrophobic maze-like sewer system underneath," Capcom explains in a press release. "Players can take cover behind vehicles above ground, while cutting a path through the underground could prove to be advantageous.

"The Police Station map is scattered with makeshift barricades throughout the halls but the overall lack of hiding places will maximize the frequent close quarter encounters. Using available cover effectively and utilizing the Tactical Shield for added protection will be the key to survival here."

Also shown in the trailer is the Upgrade Pack, which features "iconic" Resident Evil character skins, weapons patches, custom colours, and emotes. The Upgrade Pack is available as an add-on for €14.99/£11.99/ $14.99.

The Deluxe Edition includes both the game and the Upgrade Pack contents together at a discounted cost of €39.99/£32.99/$39.99.

"Players can join the fray with masks for Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker, Leon S. Kennedy, Barry Burton, and Jake Muller as well as a HUNK set with a helmet, mask and outfit."

Umbrella Corp launches on June 21 for PC and PlayStation 4. The game was originally scheduled to come out in May, but was delayed to give developers extra time to "optimize" for launch.

Capcom has said the launch of Umbrella Corps represents "warm up" for what Capcom has in store for the full year. Reports have indicated Resident Evil 7 is in development. If so, it may be announced during E3 in June, though this has not been confirmed.
