Capcom has sent out a press release today to announce post-launch downloadable content for Resident Evil 6 that will introduce three new multiplayer modes to the title. Unfortunately, Capcom’s presser does not specify if these new modes will cost extra or will be free.
The modes are as follows:
“Survivor Modetakes 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.”
All three modes will be playable with up to six players online and will use maps from the game’s Mercenaries Mode. Furthermore, players will be able to track their stats for these three modes by registering with ResidentEvil.Net, a free online service that launches alongside RE6.
Resident Evil 6 launches on Xbox 360 and PS3 on October 2. No launch dates were given for this post-launch content.
