Similar to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Umbrella Corps is a spin-off of the Resident Evil series and focuses on competitive multiplayer (with NPC zombie enemies added in). The game is played in an over-the-shoulder third-person perspective (similar to the fourth, fifth, and sixth numbered installments of the series), with first-person aiming.
The game is set in 2015, two years after the events of Resident Evil 6. Players control a customizable mercenary from one of 10 competing organizations as they fight to uncover the secrets of the original Umbrella Corporation for themselves. The single-player prologue (called "The Experiment") follows Agent 3A-7 as he is sent on missions from a new Umbrella Corporation to test new equipment.
