Today the "Resident Evil" Facebook page announced that the demo for "Resident Evil 6" is now available for download. You can get it on XBOX Live and PlayStation Network.
Here's the official synopsis from Capcom:
It has been over ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President's side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world's population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.
In a first for the franchise, Resident Evil 6 sees series favorites Leon and Chris come together to face this unprecedented threat. They will be joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement, in this relentless dramatic horror experience enacted on a global scale.
RE6 has four interwoven scenarios with their own protagonists that work together to uncover the conspiracy of a global bio terrorist attack. (Has Wesker's plan of "total global saturation" come to fruition?)
Leon Kennedy will be investigating the murder of the President. Chris is fighting B.O.W.s in China, and Jake is running to escape from Eastern Europe.
This time around zombies will run, jump and hit you with weapons. There is also a J'avo enemy that will mutate when it is hit to turn into several different hideous monstrosities.
You can play the game as an online co-op with up to four players.
