Earlier today, Capcom announced that they would be teaming up with Valve for a Resident Evil 6 X Left 4 Dead 2 crossover project. However, this isn't a new game; in actuality, it's a crossover that will affect the already existing games from each franchise, so characters from Left 4 Dead 2 will show up exclusively in the upcoming PC version of Resident Evil 6 and vice-versa.
The good news is that the content is being made free for fans of both games to access and play. In the PC version of Resident Evil 6, players will be able to select one of the four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2's cast (Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle) and have a special customized weapon load-out while playing the PC exclusive mode: The Mercenaries No Mercy. Two of the Special Infected zombies will make an appearance as well: the Witch, and Mini Tank. As for Left 4 Dead 2, three of Resident Evil 6's enemies will make an appearance in the game: Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman.
Commenting on the crossover project, Chet Faliszek from Valve stated: â€œWe“re huge Resident Evil fans, so when the opportunity arose to work directly with Capcom to combine L4D2 and RE6, we jumped at it.â€
Resident Evil 6 Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi added: â€œThe 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.â€
The new added content for Resident Evil 6 will automatically be downloaded in the background to owners of the PC version on April 6, and the Left 4 Dead 2 content will be coming sometime in the Spring.
