Some really huge news has just come across. Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 is going to be a huge crossover event. We will be going over the event for you in this article. We will also give some ideas on why we think this partnership is happening.
Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2Update Itself
The update itself will be completely free in both games. It adds different characters to each game. Here is what Resident Evil 6 is getting:
- A “The Mercenaries” mode with Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle. They will also have special load-outs.
- The Witch and Mini Tank will come over to the mercenaries.
This content will be available for PC version owners around April 5th.
Left 4 Dead 2 will be getting these features:
- The Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman will be coming over to Steam Workshop and then into the game. We assume these will be special infected available in some modes.
There is no word yet on future updates. However this is some big news. Capcom and Valve are teaming up for this huge Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 project.
So why did Resident Evil 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 come about?
We have a few theories on this. Unlike EA, Valve and Capcom have usually had a good working relationship. Capcom games have sold well on Steam. Capcom was also hurting after their handling of Megaman. This partnership should garner them some credit with some fans.
Finally, such an unexpected event will likely generate major sales. They are sharing fans, so to speak. The true reason is probably some combination of these things.
