‘Resident Evil 6′ Coming To Steam And Games On Demand, First Major Update Available Now

RE6

Ada doesn’t have many friends, but that changes after this major update to Resident Evil 6. The free update will give Ada a partner so you can enjoy her campaign with a friend, and this new agent is also unlocked in the Extras. It also brings with improved camera options so you can adjust the camera to fit your play style and an ultra hard “No Hope” difficulty setting that will spank you, and not in the good way. This isn’t to be confused with the January update, which will unlock Agent Hunt mode from the beginning, provide more matchmaking options before starting a game, and stage selection within chapters. That update should go live on January 22nd. More after the break.

If the thought of going to a store to pick the game up sounds like too much work (I totally agree), Resident Evil 6 will be making its way to Games On Demand soon and Steam on March 22nd. The latter will take full advantage of Steam’s Cloud saving, achievements, Friends support, Game overlay, and leaderboards.
