Capcom to Release Free Resident Evil 6 Update Based on Fan FeedbackAn update for Marmite love it or hate it horror game Resident Evil 6 is incoming, based on feedback from Resi’ fans. Check inside for details.

It’s a game that has polarised opinions in the gaming world, what was seen as a sure-fire hit has turned out to be a bit of a disappointment to a number of Resident Evil fans. As it happens, we rather liked it, read our review for yourself Here.

The newly announced update is slated for release in mid-December for Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, it will include the following additions and improvements;

  • Gamers will be able to adjust the camera to give a greater field of view as best suits their play style. Screenshots illustrating the new camera and co-op features can be found on Capcom’s press site. The camera screenshot pairs show the minimum and maximum range of the new camera setting. Please note that this feature is still in development and may change without further notice before the title update is released.
  • Subtitle options have been improved so that English language audio can be combined with subtitles in an alternative language.
  • As recently announced, Ada Wong’s campaign will be unlocked from the start and have an optional player-controlled co-op partner added. It was previously necessary to complete all three other campaigns in order to unlock Ada’s story.
  • ‘No Hope’ difficulty level will be added above the existing levels, for players who want an extreme challenge.

A Capcom statement reads: Capcom values user feedback on Resident Evil 6 and ResidentEvil.net and is working continuously to improve the experience for players.”
