Capcom and Valve have announced the Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 crossover project.
This project between the two games will see characters from Left 4 Dead 2 feature exclusively in the upcoming PC version of Reident Evil 6. Enemies from Resident Evil 6 will also feature in the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. All the content will be made available for free to fans of either game.
Resident Evil 6 PC owners will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s cast including Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle when playing The Mercenaries No Mercy. Each character will have a special customized weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise including the Witch and Mini Tank will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen. This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from April 5.
Resident Evil 6’s enemies including Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman will be making their way to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. These were brought to life in the game using the Steam Workshop tools. Left 4 Dead 2 owners will be able to face a new challenge when Resident Evil 6 characters feature in the game this Spring.
Commenting on the crossover project, Chet Faliszek from Valve stated:
“We’re huge Resident Evil fans, so when the opportunity arose to work directly with Capcom to combine L4D2 and RE6, we jumped at it.”
Resident Evil 6 Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi added:
“The Resident Evil 6 team really enjoyed working on this crossover, and we’re confident that our fans will have a great time with it too! We hope you enjoy this unique content.”
