New multiplayer modes coming to Resident Evil 6 on December 18, Xbox gets it first
Remember when it was revealed that the Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 6 would get DLC first? Well, now it’s time for that timed exclusivity to come into effect.
On December 18, Capcom will be releasing three new multiplayer modes as DLC for Resident Evil 6. Said modes are “Predator”, “Survivors” and “Onslaught”. Each mode can be individually purchased for 320 Microsoft points or as a bundle for 720 points through Xbox Live. You can check out descriptions for each mode, as well as screens and videos below.
Capcom has also revealed the official release date for the game’s big title update, which lets players tweak the camera, allows access to Ada’s scenario from the get-go, and adds the No Hope difficulty. That will be hitting PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on December 17, for the price of free!
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.
