"Resident Evil 6" Costumes Take Us Back to Simpler, Blockier Times

PSOne style looks start unlocking via online event on December 28

I'm not normally one to bother with downloadable costumes, but Capcom's latest Resident Evil 6 offerings have me more tempted than ever. A new series of outfits for a variety of characters brings vivid flashbacks of the PlayStation Resident Evil days, right down to the last jutting, blocky polygon.

 

 

According to Capcom-Unity, the first opportunity to nab these costumes arrives on December 28, when ResidentEvil.Net launches the "Zombie Mayhem" online event. RE6 players will be tasked with joining forces and taking out as many zombies as possible, with one of the costumes from the set above unlocking after 15 million zombies have been killed worldwide. 

 

The rest of the costumes should be available via similar means, with future online events creating more opportunities to unlock these throwback treats. Here's a closer look at each one:
