Upcoming Resident Evil 6 DLC outlined
PC version to get exclusive multiplayer mode, benchmark tool
Capcom has provided new details about upcoming content for Resident Evil 6.
The upcoming PC version will contain a new and exclusive mode called The Mercenaries: No Mercy. An expansion of the existing mode, more enemies on screen than ever before will provide a greater challenge, but also the opportunity for players to use their skills to rack up even higher combo scores. Coming in February, PC owners will also be able to check out how the game will run on their machine thanks to a free benchmark test.
Also coming soon is a fourth additional mode, Siege. An online multiplayer mode for two to six players, Siege sees a lone AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent in trouble and in need of help. Players will split into two teams with one assuming control of enemy creatures who are trying to take down the rookie, while the other team selects playable characters from the main game and must keep him alive. Siege Mode will be available in March for Xbox 360 and PS3, priced at 320MSP/$3.99/€3.99/£3.19.
It has also been confirmed that Survivors, Predator and Onslaught game add on modes will be available for PlayStation 3 owners this February, with each individually priced at $3.99/€3.99/£3.19.
All four post launch game add on modes – Survivors, Predator, Onslaught and Siege – will be available for PC owners to download and purchase after the game's release, with any future title updates for the console version also being made available free of charge for PC owners.
Resident Evil 6 is in stores now for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with PC digital download arriving on March 22, 2013.
