The date is approaching near and the time for combating the living dead is coming nearer. Capcom’s latest product Resident Evil 6 is scheduled for a release on October 2, 2012, and the company has released details related to its DLC. The gaming major is recognized for extracting the best price for its DLC which features the best highlights of the edition. Coming back to RE 6, the game is expected to feature some eye grabbing multiplayer modes. The modes would be part of the maps available with the Mercenaries mode, which makes a comeback after RE 4 and RE 5.
The first mode is the Survivor mode, where players appear in combating the zombies and once slain reappear as zombies fighting till the last ‘man’ is left standing. On the other hand, the ‘Predator’ mode sees the player donning the role of ‘Ustanak’, the gigantic monster who is out to kill other players. Other players in this mode combat the giant and have to survive till the session is completed. There is a rescue and protect mission which is also part of this game now. The third mode, ‘Siege’, which has gamers offering security for a single NPC while the players in the opposition (zombies) are given the same NPC as the target.
The multiplayer is designed to accommodate up to six players at one time and promises to be a thrilling ride in the franchise. The only sad part remains that the DLCs are designed only for Xbox 360 and there is no detail regarding its presence for PS3 and PC users. Confirmation is awaited whether gamers would have to shell out extra bucks for the DLC or whether it would be free for pre-order versions.
