Different classes of character were also shown, indicating team work will be a key element of the shooter.
Biohazard: Umbrella Corps is expected for release in 2016 for PlayStation 4. A release outside of Japan was not mentioned but other Capcom territories have posted the trailer on YouTube, indicating the game will be available in North America and Europe too.
Interestingly, these trailers do not feature the BioHazard or Resident Evil brands in the game's title, it is simply called "Umbrella Corps,"
Capcom trademarked Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps in Europe and Japan. The last game to bear the "Umbrella" moniker was Wii lightgun title Resident: Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, which was also released for PlayStation 3 following a period of exclusivity on Nintendo's console.
Despite the similarities to the Wii title, Umbrella Corps seems to be more in line with Slant Six's third-person shooter, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City.
