Resi 6 drops for PC gamers on the 22nd March as a £19.99/€29.99 disc or digital download (US fans, I am afraid it is download only), and those lovely dudes at Capcom have announced today that it will include a brand new mode
exclusive to the home computer release.
The Mercenaries: No Mercy “takes fan favourite The Mercenaries and ramps up the gameplay to 11″. Basically this means even more enemies and ridiculous combos – yaay. Check out our awesome vid for a chance to see it in action.
Both digital and physical versions will include the following features, which were added to the console versions in post-launch title updates: access to Ada Wong’s campaign from the outset along with the option to play this campaign with a co-op partner and the ability to fine tune the in-game camera. As with the console releases, players of the PC version will also be able to take advantage of ResidentEvil.net.
Coming in February, PC owners will be able to check out how the game will run on their machine thanks to a free benchmark test, something I tip my hat to them for including.
And there is more from Capcom:
Owners of Resident Evil 6 will be able to further expand their gameplay experience with the release of a fourth additional mode, Siege. An online multiplayer mode for two to six players, Siege sees a lone AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent in trouble and in need of help. Players will split into two teams with one assuming control of enemy creatures who are trying to take down the rookie, while the other team selects playable characters from the main game and must keep him alive. Each game consists of two rounds with teams switching between the human and enemy roles. The human team wins a round if the BSAA agent survives, while the enemies win if they can defeat him. Siege Mode will be available in March for Xbox 360 and PS3, priced at 320MSP/$3.99/€3.99/£3.19.
It has also been confirmed that Survivors, Predator and Onslaught game add on modes will be available for PlayStation 3 owners this February, with each individually priced at $3.99/€3.99/£3.19.
All four post launch game add on modes – Survivors, Predator, Onslaught and Siege – will be available for PC owners to download and purchase shortly after March 22, with any future title updates for the console version also being made available free of charge for PC owners.
