Free Update on the Horizon for ‘Resident Evil 6’


It’s only been a little over a week since Resident Evil 6 was released, and already Capcom has announced new content for the game.  Mercifully, Capcom has foregone their usual routine of paid DLC (I’m looking at you, Marvel vs. Capcom 3), and will be releasing the update for the low, low price of diddlysquat.

The update doesn’t add a huge amount of new content according to G4, but it’s certainly a pleasant surprise for fans.  The meat of the update centers around the unlockable Ada Wong campaign, in particular the fact that it is now unlocked for all players, not just those who have completed the game’s other three campaigns.  They have also added cooperative play to the Ada campaign, although there’s no word as to who Ada’s familiar will be for the coop experience.

There’s also word of a new difficulty mode, bleakly titled “No Hope,” which should ramp the difficulty level to new heights for players who scoffed at the game’s original difficulty levels.  Capcom has not announced an official date for the release, other than the nebulous “soon.”  We’ll keep you posted when Capcom supplies a more concrete release.
