Capcom has provided new details about Resident Evil 6's multiplayer modes.<br/><br/>During its Captivate event in Rome, Capcom revealed that Resident Evil 6 will see the return of cooperative multiplayer, including both online and split-screen play. Unlike in Resident Evil 5, the mode will now feature drop-in and drop-out play.
