Capcom released details for their upcoming third-person shooter Umbrella Corps. A brand new map based on the Antarctic Base from Resident Evil Code: Veronica and an additional “Mutated Zombie” creature type are infecting the title when it releases on June 21st, 2016.

The newly unveiled Antarctic Base, set within the Umbrella research facility, was never repaired after the deadly T-virus incident witnessed in Resident Evil Code: Veronica. The base remains in its heavily destroyed state, featuring a vertically expansive play area covering three floors that allow players to endure a thrilling fast-paced round of hide and seek gameplay. Perhaps the most tactical map in the game, players can utilise cover points, interwoven ventilation ducts, and ladders to unleash deadly surprise attacks on their foes.

Take a closer look at the Antarctic Base map from Umbrella Corps in the new trailer below. This video sets the stage for the map’s place in RE history with an intro using Resident Evil Code: Veronica storyline footage (as seen in Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles). Keep an eye out for brutal Brainer battles and locations you remember from RE Code: Veronica.

Also being added into the shooting mayhem are the special “Mutated Zombies” that can be found in the single player Experiment Mode’s Antarctic Base map and in the Multi-Mission Mode’s SP DNA Hunter ruleset. Featuring advanced states of mutation, there are many viruses spreading across the infected zones in Umbrella Corps and it’s unclear whether the T-virus or C-virus is responsible for these blood thirsty enemies. Harder to defeat than normal zombies, not only are they unaffected by the Zombie Jammer, but they are also able to render the Zombie Jammer temporarily ineffective against other creatures near the player.

Umbrella Corps releases on PC and PS4 June 21 for $29.99.
