Capcom announces plans for Resident Evil 6 post-launch content
Three new multiplayer modes- sounds good!
Capcom has announced plans to launch new game modes and maps for their upcoming game, Resident Evil 6 after it launches on October 2.
They will be adding three new game modes, all of which will be supporting up to six players in multiplayer and will use maps from the Mercenaries Mode (new maps for the Mercenaries Mode will also be released after the launch).
These are- Survivors, Predator and Siege.
Survivors mode is a classical team based mode, but adds a “little twist.” Here’s how Capcom describes it in the press release they’ve sent out: “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 the second mode of the three, 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.”
And lastly, in the Siege mode, “human players will be 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.”
Capcom will be announcing more details and plans for DLC soon.
