Yesterday, video game publisher Capcom USA announced that their zombie survival game “Resident Evil 6” would be getting some new game modes for players to enjoy via DLC add-ons this month.
“Resident Evil 6” takes place ten years after the events in Raccoon City and the President of the United States is planning to reveal the truth about what really took place in the city. Unfortunately for Leon S. Kennedy a bioterrorist attack occurs at the venue and he must fight his way out and get to the bottom of the terrorist plot. At the same time Chris Redfield arrives in China as the country is in the middle of its own attack.
The three new game modes:
- Predator – Available for two to six players, in 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.
- Survivors – Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.
- Onslaught – Onslaught sees two players go head-to-head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.
These modes expand on the multiplayer and will be available exclusively first on the Xbox 360 Dec. 18, 2012 running gamers 320 Microsoft points each or for 720 points in a bundle (sorry PS3 peeps).
