BackgroundIn a first for the franchise, Resident Evil 6 sees series icons Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield come together to fight an unprecedented threat. They will be joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement, in this relentless dramatic horror experience enacted on a global scale.
A sizable cast is split up into four different storylines, all playable as separate campaigns but with interconnecting plots. Every scenario features two characters, supporting either cooperative play or single-player with an AI-controlled partner. The stories revolve around four main protagonists: Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield, Jake Muller and Ada Wong.
Ten years after the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place, in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Raccoon City survivor Leon is set to appear at his side, as a friend and bodyguard, but when the venue suffers an devastating attack, the President is killed, and Leon is once again thrown into the center of a major outbreak.
At the same time, long-time Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) member Chris Redfield arrives in China to combat another the threat of another bioterrorist attack. He is joined by Piers, a skilled newcomer to the agency, and the pair soon find themselves crossing paths with Leon and his partner Helena in their hunt for the truth.
In addition to the story mode, Resident Evil 6 also features a Mercenaries mode, where players choose from a number of characters and then fight against hordes of enemies. In the Agent Hunt mode, players are allowed to take control of random enemies in other people's games.
