A new mode added to Resident Evil 6 will allow players to take on the role of monster rather than hero.

Andriasang reports Famitsu detailed a new Agent Hunt mode in a feature on Resident Evil 6 this week, which allows players to take control of monsters.

Perhaps most interestingly, the mode is integrated with the story; once you’ve cleared the game once, you can opt into Agent Mode, allowing other players to “invade” some levels and control the enemies there.

You can even have more than one human-controlled enemy roaming the level, with your opponents able to communicate via voice chat.

Resident Evil 6 is due on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in November.
