If you are one of those who enjoyed Resident Evil 6 and own the 360 version of the game, you might be happy to know that Capcom comes bearing gifts this holiday season in the form of three new multiplayer modes. These are indeed exclusive to the Xbox 360 and will cost you 320 MS Points a piece, or you could get them all together for just 720 MS Points. The three new modes in question are Predator, Survivors, and Onslaught. Official descriptions for each are as follows:
Predator - In a series of quick fire rounds, up to six players take their turn as the fearsome Ustanak with full access to its weapons, while the others must avoid capture or worse. Human players score points for successful attacks, but lose points for being caught or taken down. The match is over once all have played as the Ustanak, with the participant with the most points crowned as the winner.
Survivors - This is the Resident Evil 6 take on the classic solo and team based deatchmatch mode. Like Predator, you“ll compete for the highest score, but once a player is taken out, they respawn as one of the game“s enemy characters, and must then defeat another human character in order to return to the fray as their original player character. Survivors is available for two to six players.
Onslaught - Chaining combos is the key to success in this two player mode where each must clear waves of oncoming enemies. The twist comes when a player completes a combo chain as this will send enemies over to their opponent“s screen. Expect the balance of power to constantly shift in this intense addition to the Resident Evil 6 experience.
These three new multiplayer modes are all out now, so if you have the 360 version of Resident Evil 6, enjoy it, and can spare the points, why not show some Christmas fear and download this? It's unknown at this time whether or not Capcom will be releasing these modes for other versions in the future.
