12/4/2012 7:13:00 PM
Time to start playing Resident Evil 6 again as three new multiplayer modes consisting of Predator, Survivors and Onslaught will be added to the game at 320 Microsoft Points each. They can also be purchased as a bundle for 720 Microsoft Points.
Predator mode which is available for 2-6 players has one player in the role of the Ustanak. The humans task is to either stop the Ustanak or survive until the end of the session.
Survivors mode is deathmatch or team deathmatch with a twist. If a player is killed, they respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Kill a human player and you will be resurrected in human form. Last man or team standing wins. The mode can be played by 2-6 players.
Onslaught has two players in a head to head fight to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Usually hoard modes in videogames involve teams playing together but this game features a twist much like Super Puzzle Fighter in which chaining enemy kills together will send enemies to the opponents screen. Last man standing wins.
A free update for the game will also be released on December 17th that will allow players to adjust the in game camera to allow for a better field of view, English subtitles and the ability to play Ada Wong's campaign without having to beat the other campaigns and co-op support for the story. Finally a new difficulty named "No Hope" will be added for players that want a challenge.
