Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps is a New Competitive Shooter For PS4

Capcom reveals new team-based shooter set in Resident Evil universe.

67 Comments

Capcom has announced Biohazard: Umbrella Corps, a competitive shooter set in the Resident Evil universe.

The game was shown off at Sony's PlayStation press conference in TGS, where Capcom said it will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Resident Evil series this year with remakes of previous titles, as well as this new shooter.

Although details on the game were not specifically provided, the gameplay video showed firefights from both a first-person and third-person perspectives, as well as cover mechanics. In addition to an assortment of guns, more unconventional weapons such as a hook-blade were used by some of the characters.

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,"

No Caption Provided

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.

Why's it called "biohazard" and not "resident evil"?

Im just curious. Is anyone on here even excited for this game? I feel like Capcom doesn't understand the appeal of its own ip. Why is this a resident evil game? If it turns out bad, (not to sound like im hating on this game, but it looks like its gonna be generic and nothing special.) then the more of these spin-offs(?) they make are only serving to dilute the franchise into something generic and nothing special..

I'm confused about the game title but they're entitled to work on what they want after-all they are delivering on the RE2:Remake.

I can see some influences from other game series, but I'll hold off judgement until I've seen more of what it can do.

From the official website: "This title packs in classic Resident Evil gameplay elements, such as menacing zombie hordes."

Despite what most are saying, it actually has peaked my interest. They're not even trying to be secretive about what this game will be. In other words if you're looking for a re1-5 type experience, then this isn't for you, but if you're looking for a tactical fps then maybe.

All the Xbros moved to Sony this gen so PS4 is getting shooters, timed dlc for shooters and whatnot. Competitive FPS has lost its mojo, they are all the same.

Resident Evil is not a shooter. FAIL.

In fact, this reminds me of that crappy F.E.A.R online game; just a misuse of the license and totally ignoring what the series is about.

Looks like it follows that nightmare of a game RE: ORC, a nightmare cause of who HORRIBLY bugged and glitched it was. Needless to say that everyone will be waiting to see if this game is even "decent" (well, almost everyone).

Probably not even decent enough to make CoD sweat.

they should be announcing RE7 to offset the lame generic trendiness of this online RE game, come on Capcom. I'm sure RE7 will feature some online component but we all want the game to be about characters and story once again...online should be a secondary aspect not the main feature. This game should satisfy the lame online frag goons.

Hmm, sorry Capcom. This looks to be as bad as Dead Aim & Operation Raccoon.

@RSM-HQ: Dead Aim was great as a light gun game, Raccoon City was a rip off demo.

@yixingtpot: Can't state I liked Dead Aim at all. Was a horrid game, that I place equally as flawed and mediocre as Operation.

However, like whatever game you please :)

The game is also releasing for Windows, according to several other sources.

Gamespot, an article update should be made...

I don't mind an actiony RE. It's better they're just telling it as it is instead of pretending to make a new horror entry.

But for the 20th anniversary? Come on...

Remember when Resident Evil used to be a spooky, nerve-shattering survival horror series?

Ah yes, its got everyone's favorite Resident Evil features like wall running, slow mo, cover system, first person shooting, and of course multiplayer.

I thought Capcom was done using RE to chase the Call of Duty crowd

This looks nothing like ORC at least that game was serviceable and had actual damn story and wasn't just mindless multiplayer. This looks like garbage.

Can't say I was very impressed with this one, since this looks like they are trying to do the whole Operation Raccoon City thing again, and we all know how well that worked out the first time. This looks like it will probably be one of those crappy free to play games.
