Agent Hunt is an alternate play mode that players unlock after completion of Resident Evil 6. The mode allows players to take control of enemies in Resident Evil and infect another player’s single player game.
Agent Hunt mode is only religated to specific portions of the game. Enemy players can use voice chat to coordinate their attacks. The player whose game has been infected will be unaware there are players in their game. They also won’t hear the voice chat between the Agent Hunt players. So that ass of an enemy that is waiting for you by an important item? Yup, that might be a player. Fortunately there is an option to turn it off if a player doesn’t want their game infected. It’s interesting how Capcom seems to be incorporating multiplayer elements into the single player campaign of RE6. No word on how many players the mode supports.
Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd in North America for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
