For the Resident Evil franchise, this will be the first time. Yes, Resident Evil 6 is going to feature the option of playing as the undead in a new mode known as Agent Hunt Mode.
Agent Hunt will become available once you’ve cleared an area in the story mode. The new game mode will put one player against many other online opponents.
Whilst playing Agent Hunt, other human players will randomly connect to your game and take control of some of the monsters. You won’t have a clue as to what zombie has the luxury of a functioning human brain but you will be warned that they are tracking and hunting you.
Resident Evil 6 will release on the 2nd of October for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.[via Andriasang]
