Resident Evil 6 was critically panned when it first launched, but that hasn’t dissuaded Capcom from releasing the PC port in March. In fact, the publisher announced a new mode exclusive to the PC version that should provide a hearty challenge to the most hardcore players.
Capcom announced today that Resident Evil 6 for the PC will launch with a new mode for the popular Mercenaries game type. It’s called No Mercy, and it throws more enemies at players than was possible on consoles. Furthermore, Capcom will release a benchmark test before the title’s launch so PC players can determine if their PC is up to snuff. You can check out the system requirements here.
PC players aren’t the only ones getting some new Resident Evil 6 content in the future, however, as the console versions will be getting a new multiplayer mode called “Seige” in March. The add-on pack supports two to six players who are spread across two teams. One team consists of monsters trying to kill an AI controlled BSAA agent while the other team is made up of the cast from RE6 trying to protect him. In short, Capcom has turned the escort mission into a multiplayer mode. This is innovation, folks.
The new Seige mode will retail for $3.99 when it launches sometime in March for the PS3 and Xbox 360. This mode, alongside previously released DLC, will be available for the PC version shortly after its launch on March 22.
In other Resident Evil news, Capcom will be bringing a hi-def port of 3DS title, Resident Evil Revelations, to the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and Wii U in May.
