Capcom has confirmed that the Resident Evil 6 will see the release of new modes and additional content following launch as DLC.
Available as downloadable content, three new gameplay modes will expand on the multiplayer elements available in the retail version.
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, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W., 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 wins.
Survivors, Predator and Siege modes will all support up to six players online and be played using maps from Mercenaries Mode.
Further post-launch downloadable content for Resident Evil 6 will include additional maps for Mercenaries, which can in turn then be used as maps for Survivors, Predator and Siege modes, plus other items.
Resident Evil 6 is set to launch on October 2nd, 2012 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version will follow later.
