Resident Evil 6 rated by BBFC

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has staple-gunned an 18 certificate to Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 6.

According to the ratings body’s official website, the zombie-horror shooter packs four hours and 15 minutes of cut-scenes.

As expected, the cinematics are packed full of strong violence and gore, though fans will be pleased to know they made it through the process with no cuts.

Resident Evil 6 takes place 15 years after the destruction of Raccoon City, and offers three distinct campaigns to tackle. Aside from returning faces Leon S. Kennedy and Chris Redfield, players will also hop into the boots of Jake Muller, who just so happens to be the son of series antagonist, Albert Wesker.

The game is due out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on October 2, 2012.
