Today, Capcom confirmed two additional maps as well as details for an Upgrade Pack for the upcoming Umbrella Corps. The fast-paced third person shooter set in the iconic Resident Evil universe is set for release on June 21, 2016 and is available for pre-order beginning today.
Watch the Umbrella Corps’Returns to Raccoon City and the RPD Building’ Trailer:
Two new maps offer a spin on familiar locales from the classic Resident Evil games and will be featured in multiplayer modes as well as The Experiment single player mode. The Raccoon City map features wide open city streets contrasted against a claustrophobic maze-like sewer system underneath. 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.
