Resident Evil Spin-off Umbrella Corps Coming to PS4, PC in May


Capcom has announced Umbrella Corps, a competitive shooter set in the Resident Evil universe, will launch in May for PlayStation 4 and PC. A new trailer for the game has also been released, showing off some of the team-based gameplay modes that will be available in the game.

As seen in the trailer, many of the battles take place in recognisable Resident Evil locales. Along with areas that look to be from Resident Evil 4’s European setting, there’s also the Tricell building, which is a nod to Resident Evil 5.

Umbrella Corps will support up to six players, with two teams facing off against each other in many of the gameplay modes. The game will also include a single-player mission mode called “The Experiment” and a wave-based survival mode.

Umbrella Corps will be available digitally and will cost $29.99/£29.99.

Capcom initially trademarked the game as Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps in Europe and Japan. However, it seems to have dropped the Umbrella Corps and Resident Evil monikers for the final release.

The last game to bear the “Umbrella” name was Wii lightgun shooter Resident: Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, which was also released for PlayStation 3 following a period of exclusivity on Nintendo’s console.
