Capcom has just announced that the PC version of Resident Evil 6 will feature exclusive content. The new content is an updated take on Mercenaries, appropriately titled The Mercenaries: No Mercy. The new mode will feature more enemies on the screen at once than ever before.
Resident Evil 6 PC Edition will be available to download in North America on March 22nd, 2013 with European territories seeing a digital and disc-based version on the same date. The digital and European disc version will contain on-disc access to Ada Wong’s campaign with the ability to play it co-op.
The digital version of Resident Evil 6 PC will be available in North America for $39.99 and in Europe for €29.99/£19.99.
In addition to Mercenaries, a new mode will be available in the online multiplayer portion called Siege. This is an online multiplayer mode for two to six players. Siege sees a lone AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent in trouble and in need of help. Players will split into two teams with one assuming control of enemy creatures who are trying to take down the rookie, while the other team selects playable characters from the main game and must keep him alive. Each game consists of two rounds with teams switching between the human and enemy roles. The human team wins a round if the BSAA agent survives, while the enemies win if they can defeat him. Siege Mode will be available in March for Xbox 360 and PS3, priced at 320 Microsoft Points or $3.99/€3.99/£3.19 PSN.
It has also been confirmed that Survivors, Predator and Onslaught game add on modes will be available for PlayStation 3 owners this February, with each individually priced at $3.99/€3.99/£3.19.
All four post launch game add on modes – Survivors, Predator, Onslaught and Siege – will be available for PC owners to download and purchase shortly after March 22, with any future title updates for the console version also being made available free of charge for PC owners.
