Resident Evil 6's Chris Redfield-led campaign will be heading to the "fictitious coastal town" of Lanshiang, located right next to China's own Twilight Zone. Furthermore, it'll be set in 2013, meaning that the game will offer a bleak vision of our imminent future.

Capcom offered up more information beyond the setting and date clarifications this morning, such as word that the game's "mysterious third protagonist" is taking care of important mercenary business in Eastern Europe before he's tasked with saving the world in RE6. And perhaps most importantly, the Japanese publisher noted that this fall's big RE game will utilize an "evolved control system," which grants players the ability to "shoot whilst moving; slide; roll in any direction, and to take cover along with the addition of an enhanced melee attack." Blasphemy, we say!
