The Mercenaries Show No Mercy on Resident Evil 6 PC


Resident Evil 6 is coming to PC this March (on the 22nd), and like many recent console-to-PC late arrivals it’ll come with a little something extra (and exclusive). Good things come to those who wait, that’s what they say.

Well, I suppose it’s not that much of a good thing. The PC version’s bonus exclusive actually isn’t all that much. It’ll come with a new mode called The Mercenaries: No Mercy, which is just traditional The Mercenaries with more enemies on screen and a higher level of challenge.

Post-launch console DLC modes Survivors, Predator, Onslaught and Siege will also be available for the PC version, but after launch as paid DLC. Adding those to the game for free would have been a nicer “thank you for waiting” gesture, but of course then Capcom wouldn’t have any DLC revenue stream coming from the PC crowd.

For any one curious to know how RE6 will run prior to its release, Capcom will be releasing a free benchmark test so you can make sure your gaming rig’s specs are up to par before ponying up the $39.99 it’ll cost to download it (or buy it on a disc at retail, if you’re in Europe).

Elsewhere in RE6 DLC land, add-on mode Siege is slated for release in March on PS3 and Xbox 360 for 320MSP/$3.99. Previous Xbox 360 exclusive modes Survivors, Predator and Onslaught will also be coming to PS3 in February similarly priced at $3.99 each.
