Capcom have revealed that Resident Evil 6 will be expanded with the release of new modes and additional content following the launch on October 2nd.
The content will come as DLC and there will be three new gameplay modes which will expand on the multiplayer features that are available in the game. All modes will support up to 6 players online. These three new modes are as follows:
- Survivors Mode – This takes the classic solo- and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and you respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down two human characters to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins.
- Predator Mode – 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.
- Siege Mode – Choosing the human side in Siege Mode will see players protecting a single NPC, while as a member of the enemy team, players will need to eliminate that same NPC. If the NPC is still alive at the end of the time period, the human team win.
Players will also be able to track their accomplishments in the new modes alongside the main campaign and also compare their stats by registering on ResidentEvil.Net which will also launch on October 2nd. There will also be other post launch DLC including additional maps for Mercenaries, which can in turn then be used as maps for Survivors, Predator and Siege modes, plus other items yet to be announced.
