Releasing in early 2016 for PlayStation 4 and PC, Umbrella Corps, a new fast-paced third person shooter set in the iconic Resident Evil universe, received a new gameplay video today.

During the five-minute video, you’ll see two squads from the development team at Capcom Japan face off in 3 vs 3 competitive team battles in One Life March Mode, where players must defeat the opposing team in a 3-minute time limit without any option to re-spawn.

Capcom adds:

[English] voice-over commentary from the team provides insight on some of the tactics used by the experts and spotlights the exclusive features specific to Umbrella Corps. Whether it’s aggressive firing, finding new paths by lifting shutter doors, utilizing the analog cover system, flanking the enemy in careful coordination, or carefully plotted sneak attacks from behind, each adrenaline-fueled match offers quick and satisfying competitive gameplay.

The video also shows off the non-traditional arsenal of weapons in Umbrella Corps that offer an exciting twist on the traditional gun and grenade loadout. The deadly “Brainer” melee axe can be charged up and used as a one-hit kill attack and the “Zombie Jammer” adds an extra variable to the mix. When this is intact, zombies will not attack, but if it’s damaged either by a calculated or errant shot, that player will become instant zombie fodder.

Capcom also confirmed that Umbrella Corps will cost $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 when it launches digitally for PS4 and PC in early 2016 in North America and Europe.

If you’re attending New York Comic Con, Umbrella Corps will be playable.

Judging by recent comments, it sounds as though Resident Evil 7 will be revealed at some point.
