Upcoming Resident Evil 6 Patch to Add Adjustable Camera, Ada Co-op Buddy

ResidentEvil6_TitleUpdate_December2012

Resident Evil 6 got off to a rocky start when it launched earlier this month, with many critics and series fans slamming on it pretty hard. Some of the criticisms are certainly valid, but so far I think the game is way better than it’s getting credit for. Basically, if you liked Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, I don’t see why you wouldn’t dig the hell out of Resident Evil 6.

Now that the game’s out, Capcom has turned its attention to addressing some issues with the game based on early player feedback. The initial result of this post-launch evaluation will be a free title update to be released in mid-December for PS3 and Xbox 360.

The update will most notably introduce a new option to pull the camera view out so it isn’t so close up on the player character’s back. Other changes are being made to Ada Wong’s campaign, including the addition of an optional co-op partner and out-of-the-box access to the campaign without needing to unlock it first.

Other new features will include updated subtitle options and a ‘No Hope’ difficulty setting that will challenge even the most skilled Resident Evil 6 veterans.

Flip through the gallery below for a look at Ada’s co-op partner and comparison shots showing the new zoomed-out camera versus the current view. And stay tuned for our full Resident Evil 6 discussion review dropping next week on Halloween day!
