Capcom will release a new Resident Evil game titled Umbrella Corps, a team-based competitive multiplayer shooter, for PlayStation 4 next year, series producer Masachika Kawata announced at Sony's pre-TGS press conference today.

In a gameplay video presented by Kawata, teams of Umbrella soldiers were shown battling each other amid zombies and using those infected enemies tactically. In one scene, an Umbrella soldier used a zombie like a human shield, while another piece of technology was used to repel zombies.

Capcom previously flirted with Resident Evil as a shooter with 2012's Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, which was developed by Slant Six Games.

Umbrella Corps will hit sometime in early 2016, the 20th anniversary of the Resident Evil/Biohazard franchise. The game is also coming to Windows PC. It's priced at $29.99 / €29.99 / £24.99.

Update: This post has been updated with new information on the game's price, name and release platforms, which include PC.
