Capcom recently released a statement regarding their multiplayer DLC plans for Resident Evil 6. Fans will have the option of buying 3 new game modes that will extend the length of the Resident Evil multiplayer experience as listed below:
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.
While no official launch date or price has been announced yet, Xbox 360 gamers will have the benefit of downloading this content first due to a timed-exclusivity deal between Capcom and Microsoft.
Resident Evil 6 releases on October 2nd for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC.
