Valve and Capcom got together to discuss the upcoming release of Resident Evil 6 for the PC come March 22nd. While they were getting into their excitement and discussions over the game, they had the brilliant idea of creating a Resident Evil 6/Left 4 Dead 2 crossover. The cross over would help revitalize Left 4 Dead 2, and it would bring some very interesting features to Resident Evil’s game play.
In Resident Evil 6, players will be able to use the Left 4 Dead 2 characters, Coach, Ellis, Nick, or Rochelle, in RE6’s The Mercenaries No Mercy mode. The characters will have their own set of abilities and weapons that Capcom believes lives true to their stories and nature. Not only will the main characters in L4D2 make it to RE6, the villains will make their way there too. The Witch, and Mini Tank will be joining the ranks of the infected. The DLC will be available beginning April 5th.
In Left 4 Dead 2, while you won’t be able to play as any of the Resident Evil 6 characters (without mods anyways), you will be able to fight some of their villains. The monsters, Lepotitsa, Napad, and Ogroman, will be making their way to L4D2 to terrorize you and your friends, alongside the other special enemies like the Witch, Tank, and Boomer. Valve says the DLC will be available in the “Spring”.
Both of the DLCs will be available at no extra cost to the gamers. This crossover is a gift to Valve’s undead enthusiasts and will possibly increase sales for both Left 4 Dead 2 and Resident Evil 6. These new DLCs are a PC exclusive, meaning those of you who have Left 4 Dead 2 on the Xbox 360, and Resident Evil 6 on the PS3/Xbox 360 are out of luck.
