Umbrella Corps Trailer Shows Off Antarctic Base Map, Mutated Zombies
When Umbrella Corps launches on June 21, it will include a brand new map based on the Antarctic Base from Resident Evil Code: Veronica.
In addition to Antarctic Base gameplay, the above trailer includes Code: Veronica story footage, as it appeared in Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles.
Here’s what Capcom says about the new map:
The Antarctic Base, set within the Umbrella research facility, was never repaired after the deadly T-virus incident witnessed in Resident Evil Code: Veronica. The base remains in its heavily destroyed state, featuring a vertically expansive play area covering three floors that allow players to endure a thrilling fast-paced round of hide and seek gameplay. Perhaps the most tactical map in the game, players can utilize cover points, interwoven ventilation ducts, and ladders to unleash deadly surprise attacks on their foes.
The end of the trailer also includes a look at the special Mutated Zombies creature type, which can be found in the single-player Experiment Mode’s Antarctic Base map and in the Multi-Mission Mode’s SP DNA Hunter ruleset:
Featuring advanced states of mutation, there are many viruses spreading across the infected zones in Umbrella Corps and it’s unclear whether the T-virus or C-virus is responsible for these blood thirsty enemies. Harder to defeat than normal zombies, not only are they unaffected by the Zombie Jammer, but they are also able to render the Zombie Jammer temporarily ineffective against other creatures near the player.
Umbrella Corps, a third-person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe, will cost $29.99/€29.99/£24.99 when it releases digitally for PlayStation 4 and PC on June 21.
