I’m sure a lot of the Resident Evil 6 players are really ready for DLC at this point. Capcom will be supplying those needs come December 18. The content will be available exclusive to X-Box 360 first on December 18 (stay tuned for PS3 announcement). This update will consist of Predator, Survivors and Onslaught modes, each priced at 320 Microsoft Points and expands the game’s multiplayer elements. Capcom is hoping the add-ons will provide new and exciting ways to enjoy Resident Evil 6. You can also purchase all the modes in a bundle for a value of 720 MS on the Marketplace.
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.
Furthermore, December 17, will also see the release of a free title update for Resident Evil 6 that will allow owners to adjust the in-game camera to give a greater field of view as best suits their play style, while those who want to combine English language audio with subtitles in their desired language will now be able to do so. Also included in the title update is an unlock for Ada Wong’s campaign that adds an optional player-controlled co-op partner for that story, and the aptly namedNo Hope difficulty level, for those who want an extreme challenge.
