[Announcement] RE6 x L4D2 Crossover Project
San Mateo, Calif. – March 15, 2013 – Capcom and Valve are pleased to announce the Resident Evil® 6 x Left 4 Dead 2 project. This crossover project between two of the interactive entertainment industry’s most respected publishers will see characters from Left 4 Dead™ 2 featured exclusively in the forthcoming PC version of Resident Evil® 6, while enemies from Resident Evil 6 will invade the PC version of Left 4 Dead 2. All content will be made available completely free for fans of either game to access and play.

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 customized 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. This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from April 5.

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 renowned 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 this spring.

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.”

Awesome, simply awesome, :D

EDIT: One image at the Unity post shows another extra map: "War Requiem". Please! Confirm if they will be already available when the game comes out or as later DLC.

Thanks.-

Now the question everyone should be asking right now is :
Will pills replace green herbs when playing with the L4D2 cast ?

I believe no additional confirmation is needed anymore, we surely are getting the maps.

Considering green herbs are mixed into pills before using them in RE6, that's already done xD

I wasn't really impressed by this when I played my friends PS3 copy, but I've just pre-ordered it 2 minutes ago since it seems like Capcom are providing the PC with quality support now.

Also for the hopes that it may encourage them to release the old Resident Evil's on Steam such as Code Veronica :)

Why did I expect, that people are gonna complain that they didn't use the L4D1 survivors, as soon as I found out the news?

It is a RE6xL4D2 crossover so obviously there are gonna be L4D2 survivors.
