Three new multiplayer modes, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Capcom have just announced that Resident Evil 6 will be getting some new multiplayer DLC, exclusive to the Xbox 360. Call your friends and get ready for three new multiplayer modes.
Hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace on December 18th, this new DLC will introduce three new multiplayer modes called Survivors, Onslaught, and Predator. The details of each mode break down like this:
In Predator 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.
Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and re-spawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.
Onslaught sees two players go head-to-head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.
In an interesting move, Capcom are offering each mode as a separate download for 320 MS Points ($3.99). Alternatively you can grab all three in a bundle for 720 MS Points ($8.99). Have a look at some screenshots of the new modes in the gallery below:
