Umbrella Corps will launch for PlayStation 4 and PC via download this May in North America and Europe, and May 12 in Japan, Capcom announced.
The Resident Evil-themed multiplayer shooter will support one to six players. Though the majority of modes are geared towards competitive team battles, there is a single-player mode called “The Experiment” that helps players familiarize themselves with the world of Umbrella Corps in more than 20 missions with various objectives. It is described as a “coliseum style horde-like mode” that “strips players of the Zombie Jammer device that provides perilous protection in multiplayer modes,” pitting players against waves of progressively harder creatures across multiple missions.
Capcom also announced that in addition to the previously announced Umbrella Laboration map, the famed Village from Resident Evil 4 has been retooled for multiplayer matches that escalate to the rooftops, and the Tricell Organization from Resident Evil 5 has a newly imagined headquarters to explore. There are also stage-specific threats, like the Ganados from Resident Evil 4 and the Cerberus dogs from Resident Evil 5.
