‘Resident Evil 6′ DLC Expands On The Multiplayer Offering

ResidentEvil6

Capcom recently detailed their plans for the post-release DLC for Resident Evil 6, and it’s nothing but good news if you’re looking forward to the multiplayer features. Among the DLC are three new multiplayer modes — Survivors, Predator, and Siege. There will also be additional maps for Mercenaries to look forward to as well. More details after the break!

In Predator, one player gets to wreak havoc as the Ustanak — that fantastically creepy Frankenstein B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller in many of the game’s trailers — on the other players. The humans are tasked with putting the creature down before it’s able to paint the walls with their insides, or to simply survive until the end of the round. Sounds a little like Gears of War’s Beast mode, just replace the Berserker with the Ustanak and the bulky space marines with people who are far easier to break.

Next up is Siege, where the players are split into teams. One team must defend an NPC against the attacks from the other team, whose goal is to beat that poor NPC to a bloody pulp.

The final mode, Survivors, is a twist on the classic Deathmatch mode, only this time when you die you’re resurrected as some sort of C-Virus monstrosity.

Of course, all your statistics and accomplishments will be easily trackable and ready to be shown off to your friends on ResidentEvil.net, the free online service that will come with Resident Evil 6.

It all sounds fun, but we won’t know for sure until the game releases on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on October 2nd.

    And that’s the problem with modern day gaming. Even before the game comes out they are ready to sell add on’s to it for after the games release. I know it’s a good idea for the company because it should make them more money, but it discourages people like me who don’t make that much to wait forever until the price drops on “The Complete Edition.” Just complete the game before you release it. Is that too much to ask for? I don’t want to buy a new car one day only to have to buy an air conditioner for it two weeks later because the car didn’t come with it in the first place… I don’t know. Maybe that analogy isn’t a good one and maybe I’m too old school and bitchy about it. I mean it’s a cool idea that a long time after the game came out they still worked on a new idea for that game like Undead Nightmare or something, but where would the line be drawn? I don’t know. I’ll stop rambling because I’m probably the only one who feels this way haha Wish I had the money to not care.
