Left 4 dead X resident evil Mar. 18th, 2013 @ 02:07 PM Reply

Capcom and Valve have teamed up for the PC versions of Resident evil 6 and Left 4 dead 2.
The cast of Left 4 dead 2 will join in mercenaries mode and will be released on the 22nd. screenshots.
The witch and tank will also appear as new enemies.

On the left 4 dead 2 side the game will get 3 new special infected.
The lepatitsa, the napad, and the ogroman.
These enemies will be released on the 5th of next month.

This DLC is exclusive to the PC versions of both games and they are completely free.

I was hoping they'd have reskinned the L4D characters to fit in better rather than import the characters models directly into Resident Evil 6, but hey, it's free.

I don't plan on getting RE6 given the console reviews, but maybe the PC version will be worth grabbing.

Although I do like the sound of new infected in L4D, I would rather not have it mixed with the atrocity that is RE6.

implying that l4d2 isn't a worse atrocity.

I might go back to L4D2 for a couple days because of this, seems kind of cool.

I think they could have put in a little more effort still

Copying some files over is hardly even DLC

I dont think its a simple file import. The expression on Rochelles face isn't like that in Left 4 dead 2, and the clothing has been retexturized from the looks of it.
They look abit more polished to me.
Its apparent in the tank enemy more than anything.

Anyway they did need to be reworked, slightly to fit some of the animations I would assume.

It's not a resident evil game, but its still a fun one. Quick time events, 19 stage boss fights and explosions that take the Earth with them, its painkiller with zombies.
If you take out the fact its suppose to be a resident evil game out of your head its great. Me and my friend did the co-op campaign together. However unlike RE5 I dont feel like RE6's campaign has replay value, its just a clusterfuck of quicktime events and scripted sequences.

However the mercenaries mode is insanely fun. It's where all the games replay value goes. I think its the best mercenaries mode so far, better than 4 & 5. Thats where you will probably spend most of your time.

I'm by no means a big fan of Resident Evil, because the 5th is the only one I've played. That being said, I did really enjoy it. The demo for RE6 on the xbox was pretty playable, so I think i'll probably grab it at a Steam sale or something.

I really do regret buying L4D for my xbox, but my comp is shit anyways. It does seem cool having the RE6 crossover into L4D2, but I'm indifferent about the reversal.

Like RES fan haven't complained enough about capcom fucking up the canon. Although I highly doubt that it is really canon.

Well RE6 hasn't come out yet. It releases on the 22nd, so the L4D2 cast will be presumably already loaded into the game.
Also for the last guy that was asking the L4D crew is not part of the story in any way.

PC only? Why can't we get these new infected for L4D2 on the 360?

Also, Jesus, I had no idea there were so many new kinds of BOWs in the Resident Evil world.

Gehhh... It's KIND of a fun idea for a cross over, but the two worlds and canons are so different from one another that it makes me really happy it's just a little added content rather than something larger.

I just love the fonts and art style that Capcom has when it comes to scores and stuff. Definitely an awesome collaboration, I'm looking forward to playing it.
