Capcom have confirmed that there's some brand spanking new downloadable content for the latest edition of the survival horror franchise RESIDENT EVIL 6!
Yes, we realise that the actual game itself hasn't even been released yet but in a move that is sadly becoming de rigeur for the industry Capcom promise to "further enhance" your Resident Evil 6 experience, with three new online modes. Available post launch as DLC, the new online modes will apparently expand upon the multiplayer elements of the game and "deliver new and exciting ways to enjoy the world of Resident Evil 6". Wowsers, saves us breaking out the Crisco...
Here's a snippet from the Press Release that explains what these new modes will be:
Survivors Mode takes the classic solo- and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and you respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down two human characters to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins.
In Predator Mode, 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.
Choosing the human side in Siege Mode will see players protecting a single NPC, while as a member of the enemy team, players will need to eliminate that same NPC. If the NPC is still alive at the end of the time period, the human team win.
All will support up to 6 players, using maps from the Mercenaries Mode, and all your stats can be tracked using the free online service Resident Evil.Net. Oh and there's also some more maps to be released for use in all the aforementioned "Modes".
Sounds pretty cool actually, just wish they'd include these things things with the game. You know, the one that you pay a not inconsiderable sum for...
Resident Evil 6 is available on PS3 and Xbox 360 from October 2
