LifeAfter held a crossover event earlier this year which saw characters from Capcom’s popular Resident Evil franchise come to the online post-apocalypse survival game. Phase two of the event kicks off on Thursday, 3rd December, and brings with it a whole host of new content.
The second phase of the event is called “The Final Battle” and unites players together to take on the Umbrella Corporation to deal the final blow to them. Popular characters such as Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong and Jill Valentine are featured with appearances very closely resembling their appearance in the main series of games. They’ll be squaring up against fan favourite villains such as Albert Wesker, Mr. X, and Nemesis.
The gameplay of LifeAfter might seem a bit of a weird fit for Resident Evil, but NetEase has tweaked how it works so the crossover makes more sense. Now you’ll have to fight familiar enemies from the Resident Evil series as you work together to unlock chests and collect three gold medallions, which you can then use to unlock a secret tunnel and fight a boss.
As you can see in the trailer linked above, The Final Battle event takes us to a familiar location that fans will enjoy: the Raccoon Police Department.
Items from the first even held in August make a return, including classic outfits for Leon and Ada, a motorcycle, and limited Resident Evil-themed decorations and pendants. Phase Two of the event also introduces new outfits that are available for Jill and Wesker. The crossover event lasts from this Thursday, 3rd December, and runs until the 17th, which should be plenty of time if you want to play this content.
