Resident Evil Outbreak 2: New mode revealed

Resident Evil Outbreak: File 2 will feature a new training mode, a first for the survival-horror series. A number of scenarios are playable - a couple of which are illustrated in the screens to the right - and will prove particularly useful to those new to Capcom's horror-fest.

Fans of the series will be keen to know whether the PAL version of File 2 will support online multiplay (already confirmed for Japan), as this feature was axed in the original Outbreak in PAL territories. While Capcom haven't confirmed online play for the UK, inside sources told us today that they're working hard to put it in place and it will almost certainly happen. Expect an announcement in the near future.

Resident Evil Outbreak: File 2 will be released for PS2 in Japan on 9 September. The game has been pencilled in for summer 2005 for the UK
