New 'Resident Evil 6' footage shows Leon, Chris and Jake in action

New footage of Resident Evil 6's Jake, Chris and Leon from San Diego Comic-Con 2012.

Capcom brought a fresh look at Resident Evil 6 to Comic-Con last week, revealing all-new gameplay segments for the game's three protagonists: Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield, and newcomer Jake Muller. For the millions of Resident Evil fans who didn't get a seat at Capcom's RE6 panel, now you have a chance to see the horror game in action.

In addition to new footage, Capcom also brought a new build of the game created specifically for Comic-Con. The demo, which featured new playable areas from each of the game's three chapters, was designed to address the glaring technical issues seen in the Resident Evil 6 demo included with Dragon's Dogma. Gone was the screen-tearing and choppy frame rate, replaced by a much smoother looking presentation.

The developers of Resident Evil 6 also made a few camera adjustments, ensuring that Leon, Chris and Jake occupy less screen real estate for a better look at the action.

Unfortunately, Resident Evil 6's action-oriented moments — particularly while playing as Chris and Jake — did not seem to mesh well with its current erratic camera and control scheme, both of which felt like a holdover from previous, more sluggishly paced Resident Evil titles. Perhaps this brave, new world in which STARS and BSAA agents can move and shoot simultaneously will just take some getting used to.

See for yourself how Resident Evil 6 is coming along with three new gameplay videos with commentary from director Eiichiro Sasaki.

Resident Evil 6 will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 2nd, with a PC version to follow.
