Capcom confirmed two additional maps as well as details for an Upgrade Pack for the upcoming Umbrella Corps. The fast-paced third person shooter set in the iconic Resident Evil universe is set for release on June 21, 2016 and is available for pre-order beginning today. To see the new maps in action you can download the new trailer and screenshots from the press site now.
Two new maps offer a spin on familiar locales from the classic Resident Evil games and will be featured in multiplayer modes as well as The Experiment single player mode. The Raccoon City map features wide open city streets contrasted against a claustrophobic maze-like sewer system underneath. Players can take cover behind vehicles above ground, while cutting a path through the underground could prove to be advantageous. The Police Station map is scattered with makeshift barricades throughout the halls but the overall lack of hiding places will maximize the frequent close quarter encounters. Using available cover effectively and utilizing the Tactical Shield for added protection will be the key to survival here.
Umbrella Corps can be pre-ordered on both the PlayStation Store and Steam, with those that purchase early receiving the bonus "Fashion Victim Pack," which adds flashy color options for armor and weapons. For PS4, pre-orders of either the standard or Deluxe Edition will also instantly receive an Umbrella Corps dynamic custom theme featuring background images, icons, sound and background music based on the game.
The newly announced Upgrade Pack features a collection of iconic Resident Evil character skins, weapons, patches, custom colors, and emotes. Players can join the fray with masks for Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker, Leon S. Kennedy, Barry Burton and Jake Muller as well as a HUNK set with a helmet, mask and outfit. The Upgrade Pack is available as an add-on for an MSRP of EUR 14.99 / GBP 11.99 / USD 14.99. The Deluxe Edition includes both the game and the Upgrade Pack contents together at a discounted cost of EUR 39.99 / GBP 32.99 / USD 39.99.

Umbrella Corporation, a ruthless international pharmaceutical company, had been known for its genetic experiments and biological weaponry that led to worldwide devastation including the infamous Raccoon City incident. Although the organization was brought down in 2003, its legacy of bio-terrorism continued. In the present day, corporations with nebulous interests in bio-weaponry have hired squads of special forces for experimental battles in restricted virus-infected areas against other mercenaries.
