Capcom and Valve have announced a special partnership that will deliver special crossover content between Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2.
This special crossover means that enemies from Left 4 Dead 2 will invade Resident Evil 6. On the other hand, characters from Left 4 Dead 2 will be playable in Resident Evil 6. All content will be made available completely free for fans of either game to access and play. The content is only effective for the PC versions of the game. Seems like console gamers will be missing out…
Here’s what they announced on the official press release:
“Owners of Resident Evil 6 PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s iconic cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries No Mercy. Each character will have a special customized weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen. This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from April 5.
Making the leap to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be some of Resident Evil 6’s most fearsome enemies – Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman. All three characters were brought to life in Left 4 Dead 2 by Valve’s renowned developers using its Steam Workshop tools. Owners of the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to face a new deadly challenge when Resident Evil 6 characters infect Valve’s classic zombie title this spring.”
If you are a fan of both games and own them for the PC, you will be enjoying some excellent free content very soon.
