Resident Evil 6's ResidentEvil.net will allow players to track their stats and gameplay details via a free, personalized website, which will look a lot like the visualizations shown in the above video. As the perky, excitable narrator tells us, ResidentEvil.net will have real-time updates so you can stalk your friends as they play, without giving away your position by logging in to the actual game.
Many of the notifications, such as someone beating your /mercenaries high score, will pop up in-game as well. ResidentEvil.net will feature exclusive unlockables linked to gameplay and will host regular online events. Capcom is working on a mobile app as well, ensuring you'll never be able to get away from Resident Evil 6. Ever.
Participating in tournaments and accessing content on ResidentEvil.net will award participants "RE points," which can be used to buy content such as Mercenaries costumes and virtual figurines. ResidentEvil.net will go live on October 20, alongside the game's launch on Xbox 360 and PS3.
