Resident Evil 6 will not only offer various perspectives and gameplay designs thanks to its three distinct yet interconnected storylines, each with its own pair of protagonists for solo or co-op play, both offline and online, but it will also enable players to cooperate and share the horror thanks to the introduction of the ground-breaking Crossover mechanic. Up to four players can connect online at specified times during the game to work together to solve a problem. Throughout various stages, the normal pairings are switched to further deepen the gameplay.
