Capcom has unveiled the first trailer for their upcoming third-person shooter Umbrella Corps. The new trailer showcases some of the new weapons and equipment players will get to use while slaying zombie hordes.

The weapons include the Zombie Beil, Analog Cover, Zombie Eisen, Zombie Shield and Zombie Jammer. You can check them out in action in the trailer below:

While the game is set in the Resident Evil/Biohazard universe, the game is less focused on story and more on competitive multiplayer combat. We doubt the game will be the next CS:Go but it still looks fun in a gory kinda way. Capcom is also going to produce remakes of their previous titles for the next gen, in celebration of the franchise’s 20th anniversary.

Umbrella Corps is set for release in early 2016 for Japan, North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4 and PC. Perhaps this will tide us over while we wait for the next Resident Evil CG movie that’s coming in 2017.
