A competitive, online third-person shooter set in the Resident Evil universe, Umbrella Corps suffered the slight delay “so the development team can spend some extra time optimizing the game to bring you the best experience possible.”
As you can see in the above trailer, Umbrella Corps allows you to customize your weapons, armor, character emotes, and more using points earned in matches:
Powerful new weapons can also be unlocked and customized. For example, the Doberman Pincer is a lethal shotgun that devastates enemy players and creatures alike, and is perfect for shutting down attempted Brainer melee assassinations. The K-12 AX is a well-rounded SMG, delivering a balance of range and fire rate. The Samurai Edge is a legendary firearm from the Resident Evil series – a modified, enhanced S.T.A.R.S. handgun designed by the Kendo’s Gun Shop of RE 2 fame. Each weapon can be decked out with a range of helpful scopes to boost accuracy or suppressors to keep your location concealed during matches.
Players can also customize their emotes using a system called I.C.O.N. (Interconnected Communications Operations Network). These interchangeable I.C.O.N. emotes let players use sounds and gestures to nonverbally communicate with other players quickly, whether that means leaping into the air with the celebrator “Woo-hoo” emote or even utilizing animal noises. Whatever gets the job done.
Will you be getting Umbrella Corps in June?
