Capcom has confirmed that it's going to release the first downloadable add-on for Resident Evil 6 on December 18, in the form of three new multiplayer modes that are exclusive for the Xbox 360.Resident Evil 6 came out in October and, while lots of people awaited the action horror game, many were disappointed by its disjointed campaigns that didn't really feel like true Resident Evil experiences.
Even so, Capcom shipped a lot of units worldwide and quickly confirmed that it was going to listen to feedback from fans and release updates that improved the experience.
Now, the first downloadable add-ons for Resident Evil 6 have been confirmed by Capcom, in the form of three different multiplayer modes: Predator, Survivors, and Onslaught.
You can check out the full details of about each mode below, via an official statement.
"Available for two to six players, in Predator one player takes on the role of the Ustanak, the fearsome B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller throughout his campaign, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W. in its tracks, or at least survive until the end of the session."
"Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players."
"Onslaught sees two players go head to head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be. "
The three modes are exclusive to the Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 6 and will be available as separate add-ons for 320 MS Points or as a bundle for 720 MS Points.
They'll be released on December 18 worldwide, right after the release of the long-awaited free update for the game, which unlocks Ada Wong's campaign and brings a No Hope difficulty level.
