Capcom has provided new details about Resident Evil 6’s multiplayer modes.

Yet more in unveiled at the Captivate event held in Rome,  Capcom  have revealed that Resident Evil 6 will see the return of cooperative multiplayer, including both online and split-screen play. This is no return to Resident Evil 5, the feature will not use drop-in and drop-out play, I guess Capcom learnt from their mistakes. Players will also be able to come and go, given less structure to the game but more option. Players will no longer be forced to return to checkpoints or restart chapters. Hurrah!

Mercenaries mode, will also be making a comeback from previous Resident Evil games. This mode will be available from the start and won’t need to be unlocked. Additional multiplayer options, including new co-op mechanics, are also set to be announced as the game draws closer to release.

Resident Evil 6 is set to be released on October 2nd.
