Like foreign exchange students of the endtimes, the stars of Left 4 Dead 2 can now be found wandering Raccoon City, and the abominations of Resident Evil 6 lurking in the swamps of Georgia.
If you own the PC version of either game, you’ll likely detect an unusual tang in your raccoon soup or boomer broth this morning.
Three Resident Evil reskins, which recast the Tank as a gruesome Napad, the Charger as the Ogroman, and the Boomer as Lepotitsa, are now available in the Left 4 Dead 2 Steam Workshop’s Official Resident Evil 6 Collection with a click of the ‘Subscribe’ button. Modders are also reportedly working on Biohazard-themed Workshop entries for hopeful inclusion in the collection over the next few weeks.
Left 4 Dead 2’s entire cast, meanwhile, have been playable in RE6’s Mercenaries mode for a couple of weeks. And like clockwork, the Witch and Tank have cropped up too:
The result of all this cross-sampling is that I’m looking at what I’d dismissed during E3 as a turgid third-person tromper in a far more flattering light today. I imagine some of you Resident Evil diehards are feeling the same way about Left 4 Dead and zombies-what-run, eh?
Thanks, Game Informer.
