Capcom have just given Resident Evil fans another reason to pick up Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster when it releases next year. Unveiled on the Capcom Unity blog, the developer has announced that a new ‘Wesker Mode’ will allow players to replace Billy Coen with the series’ main antagonist to experience an entirely new way to play the game.
You can read the original announcement below:
In addition, unveiled today for Resident Evil 0 is the all new Wesker Mode. For the first time ever in Resident Evil 0 players can experience the events leading up to the iconic mansion outbreak playing as alternative character Albert Wesker, alongside S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers. Both characters will star in a special themed outfit for the mode with Wesker replacing the traditional gameplay role of Billy Coen.
The new gameplay element is sure pique the interest of those who are still on-the-fence on whether they’re planning to buy another Capcom re-release, but ‘Wesker Mode’ sure does make for an enticing incentive.
Resident Evil 0 HD Remaster is currently slated for release in early 2016, with a special retail copy that also includes this year’s Resident Evil Remake HD Remaster pegged for a January 22 release date in Europe.
