Resident Evil 6 more than twice as long as RE5

The three different storylines of Resident Evil 6 will in total provide a healthy dose of more gameplay than predecessor Resident Evil 5, producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi has said.

Each of the three teams’ stories — those being Leon Kennedy and Helena Harper, Jake Muller and Sherry Birkin, and Chris Redfield and Tony Ponce — “is probably around 70 per cent to 80 per cent of the volume of the whole game in Resident Evil 5,” he’s said, meaning the full game will be more than twice as long.

“There’s plenty to play here,” Hirabayashi added.

Resident Evil 6 is out this fall, in October.

A demo will be out next month for those who bought Dragon’s Dogma on the 360. Everyone else gets it in September.
