Capcom has confirmed that Resident Evil 6 will see the return of the cooperative multiplayer, including both online and split-screen play.
Cooperative mode in Resident Evil 6 will feature drop-in and drop-out play, allowing players to be able to join and leave as they please without forcing them to return to checkpoints or restart chapters.
Mercenaries mode will make a return in Resident Evil 6 but this time; it will be available right from the start without needing to unlock it. There is more and Capcom will announce it soon and that, most probably be, at E3 2012.
Resident Evil 6 is set to be released on October 2nd for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
