Resident Evil 6, Left 4 Dead 2 get crossed over

Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 are both, y’know, about zombies, and infected, and dealing with brainless lurching enemies. Soon, they’ll have even more in common, as Capcom and Valve announce they’re working together on a joint project, to see characters from each franchise appearing in the other’s game.

…and we’re not just talking good guys, either. The four Survivors from Left 4 Dead 2 – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – are set to become playable characters in Resident Evil 6, introduced in The Mercenaries: No Mercy mode, exclusive to PC. They’ll be joined by the Mini Tank and the Witch, who will also pop up in the game as undead/infected opponents.

On the other side, Resident Evil 6 baddies – Ogroman, Napad and Lepotitsa – are preparing for their grand debut in Left 4 Dead 2, where they’ll join the growing horde of special infected.

The update for Resident Evil 6 (PC version only, sorry), is due out on April 5, while the Left 4 Dead 2 counterpart isn’t arriving until sometime later this year.
