Capcom has released the details of three DLC multiplayer modes for Resident Evil 6 that will remain exclusive to the Xbox 360 for a short time.
Survivors Mode will put a spin on the traditional free-for-all deathmatch formula by doing what all zombie games should have been doing from day one. When a player is killed in the heat of battle, he will revive as a member of the undead and remain as such until killing two living humans. The last man standing wins.
Predator Mode places one lucky player in control of a giant out to kill the remaining human characters. Survival is key here because bringing down this beast is nearly impossible and not necessary. Players can either coordinate an organized attack against the beast, risking death to move up the leaderboards, or flee and work alone to outlive the clock.
Siege Mode is a multiplayer escort mission, hopefully not starring Ashely from Resident Evil 4. Human players will be tasked with guarding and important NPC while zombie players will lead the charge in bringing this character down. The humans win if the NPC survives, and the zombies win if the NPC bites the dust.
Each mode will allow up to six players and be played on Mercenary Mode maps. There’s no telling how long these modes will be exclusive to the Xbox 360.
Seems like Microsoft really wants Resident Evil 6 for themselves. Not only do they have the three extra modes, but they also got the exclusive demo months earlier for anyone who purchased Dragon’s Dogma.
Don’t feel too slighted though, PlayStation 3 owners. Capcom just announced a PlayStation 3 bundle that will have every single game in the main series available for 4,500 yen ($58) through the PlayStation Network in Japan. They might even be nice enough to bring it over here.
Resident Evil 6 will be released on October 2nd for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
