New details on how Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps players will be able to customize weapons, armor, and character emotes has been provided.

Players will earn points by defeating rival mercenary teams and zombies on the battlefield. These points are used to unlock customization options for gear such as the mask, helmet, shoulder armor, body armor, and parts for the Zombie Jammer.

Different designs can be swapped out and armor can be decked out using B.S.A.A. patches, Umbrella logos, and the Spencer Family crest.

New weapons can also be unlocked and customized. One is a shotgun called “the Doberman Pincer” which works well against attempted Brainer melee assassinations, according to Capcom.

Each weapon can have a scope added to boost accuracy and suppressors can also be used.

Emotes will use a customization system called Interconnected Communications Operations Network (I.C.O.N.). These interchangeable I.C.O.N. emotes allow the player to use sounds and gestures to communicate with other players. Some emotes are celebratory such as “Woo-hoo” and there are also animal noises.

Resident Evil: Umbrella Corps was originally slated for release in May, but it has been delayed to June 21.

It will be released digitally on PC and PlayStation 4.
