For those of you who were worried that Resident Evil 6’s three campaigns weren’t enough to satisfy your need to slay hordes of zombies there is good news! Capcom has confirmed that post-launch DLC will include three new play modes that will “expand on the multiplayer elements.”
Survivors Mode 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.
In 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.
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 wins.
Survivors, Predator and Siege modes will all support up to six players online and be played using maps from Mercenaries Mode.
Fans of Mercenaries Mode can also look forward to DLC, which will expand the amount of maps that will be included in the game. All of the aforementioned DLC will be timed-exclusives for the Xbox 360.
