Resident Evil 6 To Get Three New Multiplayer Modes As Paid DLC

Resident Evil 6 To Get Three New Multiplayer Modes As Paid DLC

If you’re worried that Resident Evil 6 won’t feature enough content for you, fret not: Capcom has announced that they will be releasing three additional multiplayer modes for the game. All three modes will be timed exclusives for the Xbox 360.

The fact that the three modes share names with three TV shows/movies is likely a coincidence.

From Capcom:

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 wins.

Survivors, Predator and Siege modes will all support up to six players online and be played using maps from Mercenaries Mode.

So that’s a reality show set on an island, a Schwarzenegger vehicle featuring a dreadlocked alien, and a Denzel Washington movie about terrorism in New York that was, when you think about it, a lot like The Dark Knight Rises. Nice.

Resident Evil 6 comes out on October 2, and a demo will drop next week on September 18. That seems soon! I was super ready to not care about this game, but Stephen’s positive write-up of the opening hours made me at least want to check it out.


    • It’s not necessarily on the disc. Day one DLC can be developed as the main game’s development is in lockdown/beta by an entirely different team. However this is Capcom, so yeah , it’s probably on the disc

      • I hope it is, so I can just unlock it without having to download it.

        Why complain about game companies giving you more of a game easier? Because Gamer.

        • Why doesn’t complain about getting ripped off when getting charged more for content already available on a disc…. because naiive and uninformed.

          • haha you’re not getting charged more, you are being given the OPTION of purchasing it. Just because its on the physical disc that you own does not mean you own the rights to it, it is not ‘available’ to you. What does it matter if its physically on the bit of plastic in your house or on the server on the other side of the world, you buy the rights to the experience – in much the same way you purchase a bluray and own the right to play that video within your house but not the right to broadcast it.

          • goes to restaurant..buys meal…waiter asks if you want to purchase dessert ‘this is bullshit! you already had that dessert prepared on the menu before I bought my steak! it should have been part of the meal!’

  • So, let me try and understand this: we now have to pay to access sub-par tacked-on multiplayer? In the words of Kanye west: ‘this shit is fu#king ridiculous’ — ok, I’m not really sure if he said that; I don’t really listen to rap music, but I think I heard it on the radio once. I don’t even like Kanye west.

    • If you’d like to buy it, you can. If you don’t want to play it, you dont have to! You get to keep your money! Pretty awesome system.

  • I see you’re point. But it’s more the principle of if and general direction this is going in — imagine putting the latest cod in your system only to find out you need to pay to access the multiplayer. Plus if they didn’t do this, I wouldn’t be able to whine and complain on the internet.

  • This is completely stupid and if you disagree you’re completely deluded. The way this industry is heading is very depressing and disappointing.

  • So not only is the game adding probably unnecessary multilayer but they’re splitting the user base by making it paid. I’m OK with paid maps down the track for the dedicated, but releasing paid modes up front just means no one is going to play them even if I was slightly interested.

    The main thing I’m annoyed about is they’ve spent development time on this when they could be developing awesome extra chapters like Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape. More of that please, especially the former!

  • Being on something of a media blackout I’m kinda bummed about that minor spoiler about Muller’s campaign. I did not know that :(. Oh well. Considering what spoilers are out there I’m not doing too bad.

    • Tell me about it! I had The Dark Knight Rises completely ruined by some fu*k-tard on ING. The article wasn’t even about Batman

      • RE6 – I’d be more than happy to see fail dismally if it meant capcom went away did some soul searching and came back with a survival horror game next time. (basing that on the first impressions posts). As for ‘day one DLC’ in general, I have zero problem with it and I’m intrigued why so many ‘gamers’ do.

        • Though I’m far too sick of arguing about the issue of day one DLC; it’s basically cutting out a part of the game, and then selling it back to you – removing value that should be yours.

          In before ‘gamers feel so entitled!’ ‘it’s not the same!’, etc.

          • So I should be able to go walk into a Toyota dealership and demand that the 17′ wheels and metallic paint should be MINE because they were ‘cut’ from the car and being ‘sold back to me’?

          • No, but if they charge you for giving you a key to enable you to use the back doors, then you have the right to choke the living shit out of them.

            Damnit, I said I wouldn’t get into another argument about this!

          • But you’re choosing to buy the car, then choosing to purchase the feature of unlocking the doors, I dont actually see the problem haha 😀 you’re paying for the functionality of the front doors too, it just doesnt seem weird because its bundled in the price. Would would be NICE is if the car was cheaper if you didnt want to get the back door function. Hmm that sounds wrong 😛

          • In summary:

            The main argument comes down to people defining day one and on-disc DLC as either value adding, or price gouging.

            Speaking as someone who’s played games since he was 4, I know what I’ve come to expect as being good value, and day one / on-disc DLC isn’t.

          • speaking as someone who’s played games since he was 4, and now makes games, I think its a perfectly reasonable concept thats completely up to the individual context of each game. Game makers need to price their DLC reasonably in accordance to what it offers, and there is no trickery possible when anyone can instantly look up a review before purchasing. ” day one / on-disc DLC isn’t value” is ridiculously sweeping. If ‘undead nightmare’ for RDR or ‘Gay Tony’ for GTAIV had been available on day one, you would have complained that these enormous fantastic complete games that offer great value should have also included these huge separate additional stories that offer great value and would have kicked up a huge fuss, but not at all if they were ready 2 months later?

  • hahaha I feel that warm and fuzzy “day one DLC” feeling coming round again. Thanks a lot Capcom marketing team. I wouldn’t be surprised if the demo is 40c a go either.
