Capcom’s releasing the first batch of new game modes for Resident Evil 6 exclusively on the Xbox 360 later this month, with the other platforms getting it sometime later. The downloadable content includes Predator, Survivors, and Onslaught, which you can get individually for 320 MSP or all three for 720 MSP. No word yet on when the DLC will make its way to the PS3 or PC, but I assume there’s a (hopefully short) window of exclusivity for Microsoft’s console. The game was met with a lukewarm reception when it released back in October, but I loved it, so don’t let that keep you from playing one of the year’s most ridiculously fun co-op games. Resident Evil 6 is a wacky, over-the-top action game that brings together bits of many past Resident Evil games, but heavily draws from the last two. More on the new modes, including a bunch of screenshots, after the jump.
From Capcom’s website, 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.
