Timed exclusives and early announcements.
In a move that’s becoming all too common, Capcom have announced the first DLC for Resident Evil 6 before the game has even been released. Also, Xbox 360 users will be getting this download first.
This first round of Resident Evil 6 DLC will include three new multiplayer modes, described by Capcom as:
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.
There are no details on pricing, or release date, yet but there you have it.
