In Resident Evils 1-2 (and to lesser extent, remakes of 4) you chose your protagonist and stayed as that protagonist until the end.
In Veronica, Your Character was based on what part of the game you were on (I.E. 1st Half Claire, 2nd Half Chris)
Lastly (though probably not happening), In 5 you and your Partner were always close to each other, completing the main task together. Though you still chose your protagonist, it didn't matter much as both were together always.
I'm hoping it goes original style, as I would rather just play my fave character first, then do other character stories later.
there seem's to be three main characters, Leon, Chris, and another person unknown. There may be three separate story, I do see that all three have partners so obviously co op from the trailer. It may be like RE5 but with three separate storylines...
Official word is that you choose which Campaign you want to run through: Either Leon, Chris, or Jake (Wesker's Son) and then they all converge in China for some final chapter or something. Someone from Capcom is quoted for saying the game will take roughly 30 hours to beat.
What he said, but Capcom also said that each campaign would be a little shorter than RE5, which kinda bums me out a little since I felt RE5 was a little too short for my tastes, but overall the entire game would be about 30 hours.
there are 3 campaign's in the game Chris, leon, and jake plus a hidden campaing when you beat the game.. Anyway chris campaign is more action pack, while leon's campaign is more classic horror you have much more limited resoures.. then there's jake's campaign which is a mixture of both leon's and chris campaign's constisting of action and horror.. :)
I really cant wait for this game wish it was more like the OG RE games but as games tend to do is evolve so they can sell to everyone but its a good thing there good..
