Capcom and Valve's planned crossover events for the PC versions of Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 have gone live. In the event, Resident Evil 6 players can now add the Left 4 Dead 2 cast as in the game. In Left 4 Dead 2, you will be facing zombie hordes lifted straight out of Resident Evil 6. Players will be forced to fight them alongside regular Left 4 Dead enemies. Capcom has released a short video about the update. Check it out:
Owners of Resident Evil 6 PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s iconic cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries: No Mercy. Each character will have a special customised weapon load-out created just for use in Resident Evil 6. In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen. The content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6.
Making the leap to the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be some of Resident Evil 6’s most fearsome enemies – Lepotitsa, Napad and Ogroman. All three characters were brought to life in Left 4 Dead 2 by Valve’s developers using its Steam Workshop tools. Owners of the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2 will be able to face a new deadly challenge when Resident Evil 6 characters infect Valve’s classic zombie title.

Commenting on the crossover project, Chet Faliszek from Valve stated: “We’re huge Resident Evil fans, so when the opportunity arose to work directly with Capcom to combine L4D2 and RE6, we jumped at it.”
Resident Evil 6 Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi added: “The Resident Evil 6 team really enjoyed working on this crossover, and we’re confident that our fans will have a great time with it too! We hope you enjoy this unique content.”
You can grab the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from Steam for $40 (approx. Rs 2150).
Back in January, Capcom had announced that the PC version of the game would be getting an exclusive multiplayer game mode, dubbed Mercenaries: No Mercy. The new game mode takes the fan favourite Mercenaries game mode and ramps up the gameplay even further, presumably taking advantage of the better hardware available on PCs. It will have more enemies on screen and will offer greater challenges.
Both digital and physical versions include the following features, which were added to the console versions in post-launch title updates: access to Ada Wong’s campaign from the outset along with the option to play this campaign with a co-op partner; the ability to fine tune the in-game camera. Just like the console version, players of the PC version are also be able to use ResidentEvil.net.
