Valve And Capcom Partner Up For Left 4 Dead 2 And Resident Evil 6 Cross-Over Content
Published on Friday, 15 March 2013 14:28
It looks like the two reigning zombie franchises are coming together in a special way this Spring! Both Valve And Capcom have announced their partnership to bring us downloadable cross-over content for Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 on PC. Resident Evil 6 players will be able to choose from the L4D2 characters Coach, Rochelle, Ellis, or Nick with their own special loadouts. These characters will only be playable in Mercenaries’ No Mercy mode and will be completely free on April 5th.
As for Left 4 Dead 2 players, you get quite the opposite: Resident Evil 6’s enemies! The enemies are Lepotitsa, Ogroman, and Napad and will once again be free of charge. No specific release date for this Left 4 Dead 2 content has been announced, but it is also currently confirmed for Spring as well. Additionally, no word for the content on consoles has been said. So zombie lovers, will you be enjoying one or both of these new features?
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
