Resident Evil 6 Adds Dark Souls-Like Multiplayer

Capcom is taking a page from the official From Software handbook in a new Resident Evil 6 mode called "Agent Hunt." Once players have finished the campaign, you'll be able to select Agent Hunt from the menu and jump into another player's online game.

Once there, you'll take the form of a horrible monster! No, I'm not talking about a Halo-playing teenager. We're talking one of Resident Evil's now iconic monstrosities.

Agent Hunt is available on specific stages and attacking players will be able to voice chat with others in the game. If you're the victim of an invading player, you'll be notified that someone has entered your game, though you won't know exactly which creature is inhabited by a live player.

Don't worry, though. If you're like me, you're probably terrified enough by Resident Evil games so Capcom will allow you to turn off Agent Hunt in your campaign playthrough.
