ResidentEvil6

On December 17, Capcom will be releasing a free title update for all versions of Resident Evil 6 that will add an adjustable camera view, a co-op partner for Ada’s campaign, and a new ‘No Hope’ extreme difficulty option.

The next day, Tuesday, December 18, Capcom will follow up with a downloadable content triple-threat, available first for the Xbox 360 version as a timed exclusive. The DLC will consist of three new multiplayer-centric play modes — Predator, and Survivors, and Onslaught! Oh, my! — each to be sold separately for 320 Microsoft Points or in a bundle pack for 720 Microsoft Points.

Now let’s take a closer look at the upcoming DLC modes, shall we?

Onslaught Mode:

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.



Predator Mode:

Available for two to six players, 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 Mode:

Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn 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.
