CAPCOM began streaming a teaser commercial for the Biohazard 6 (Resident Evil 6) video game on Monday.
A limited number of the game will come with a stage download code set in Japan. The codes add extra content in the form of stage maps for "The Mercenaries" mode: a subway's Rail Yard, the High Seas Fortress aircraft carrier, and the lowest level of The Catacombs. (The same maps are available in North America, but CAPCOM will offer them separately through three different retailers.)
Resident Evil 6 takes place ten years after the events in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. The story begins as the President of the United States plans to reveal the truth behind the Raccoon City incident. A survivor and friend of the U.S. President, Leon S. Kennedy discovers that the President became the victim of another bioterrorism attack. The Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance Member Chris Redfield arrives in China as the country is also at risk for another attack.
Resident Evil 6 was slated to ship for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America and Europe on November 20 and in Japan on November 22. However, CAPCOM moved up the release to October 2 in North America and Europe and October 4 in Japan. A personal computer version is also planned.
