Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil 6’s triple campaign offering will give gamers roughly 30 hours worth of play time.

The horror sequel offers three distinct campaigns, each featuring its own playable character: Leon. S Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Jake Muller. As such, their combined length will greatly surpass that of Resident Evil 5’s single-player mode.

Speaking with NowGamer, Eiichiro Sasaki, director of Resident Evil 6, commented:

“The three characters each have their own story and you can choose whichever one you want and play that story, experience that character’s story,” he said.

“In terms of length, each character’s story is a little bit less than RE5 but when you combine them together you’re getting something that is much longer.”

“While each character’s story stands alone, all of the characters wind up in the same area of the game, in China, so there is a certain level of overlap. They stand on their own but they do overlap in certain areas. You don’t have to play them all, of course.”

Resident Evil 6 is due out on October 2, 2012 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
