Capcom have announced that their first wave of DLC add-ons for Zombie survival title Resident Evil 6 will be coming out on December 18, and that they will be a limited time exclusive on Xbox 360.
The first batch of DLC will include the new Predator, Survivors and Onslaught modes – which will cost gamers 320 Microsoft Points for each pack, or all three of the modes can be bought in one pack for a discounted price of 720 Microsoft Points.
Capcom have also promised a free title update just one day earlier on December 17. The improvements that this will bring are; players can adjust the in-game camera for a better field of view, you can now combine English speech with subtitles in another language and the Ada Wong campaign will have an optional player-controlled co-op partner added for that story, as well as a new No Hope difficulty level, that will provide an even harder challenge than before.
See below for a brief description of each of the new modes:
- 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 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.
- 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.
Resident Evil 6 is out now on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
