Resident Evil 6 ✕ Left 4 Dead 2 was an exclusive crossover on Steam for the PC versions of Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2.


Sometime after Resident Evil 6 was officially announced for PC, Capcom had worked with Valve over the possibility of releasing a crossover between Resident Evil and the Left 4 Dead series.[1] The crossover produced exclusive content for both games. The free content for each game was released to Steam on April 4, 2013.[2][3]


Resident Evil 6

The Resident Evil 6 expansion added content to The Mercenaries No Mercy gameplay mode. The main cast of Left 4 Dead 2—Coach, Nick, Ellis, and Rochelle—were added to the character roster, as well as two new enemies, the Witch and the Mini Tank.[4] While playing as these characters, the music tracks used in the stages and results screen are changed to Left 4 Dead 2 tracks. These additions are compatible with the standard characters in the game, allowing the Resident Evil 6 cast to combat the same enemies and partner with the new characters.

Left 4 Dead 2

In Left 4 Dead 2, three enemy skins from Resident Evil 6 were added to the Steam Workshop as the "Official Resident Evil 6 Collection": Napad as the Tank, Ogroman as the Charger, and Lepotica as the Boomer.[5] Featuring no official character skins in the collection, Valve encouraged users to add their own custom Resident Evil 6 characters to the Workshop.[6]


Further notes

  • Each of the assets added to Resident Evil 6 were based upon preexisting characters and enemies: Coach is based on Chris Redfield, Nick is based on Leon Scott Kennedy, Ellis is based on Piers Nivans, and Rochelle is based on Sherry Birkin. Each of the Left 4 Dead 2 characters uses melee attacks, gestures, and some weapons shared by their Resident Evil 6 counterparts. Likewise, the Witch is based on the Bloodshot and the Mini Tank is based on the Napad.
