Survivors, Predator, and Siege online gameplay modes.

Capcom has detailed three additional online modes for Resident Evil 6 to be released as download content following the horror shooter’s October 2 launch. 

These modes, as confirmed earlier, will be timed-exclusives for Xbox 360, and all support up to six players online and can be played using maps from “Mercenaries Mode.”

  • Survivors Mode: this mode takes the classic solo- and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and you respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down two human characters to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins.
  • Predator Mode: in this mode one player takes on the role of the Ustanak, the fearsome B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller throughout his campaign, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W. in its tracks, or at least survive until the end of the session.
  • Siege Mode: choosing the human side in this mode will see players protecting a single NPC, while as a member of the enemy team, players will need to eliminate that same NPC. If the NPC is still alive at the end of the time period, the human team wins.

Down the line, Capcom plans on releasing additional maps for Mercenaries Mode, which can be used in Survivors, Predator, and Siege modes, as well as “other items” still to be announced.

    Seriously? They advertise new modes and now it’s DLC? Fail Capcom. I didn’t think they could stoop lower than the versus mode crap but they multiplied it times three and then added another one with that timed exclusive BS. guess im not getting this game at launch after all since i can only afford all this stuff in the inevitable complete collection or whatever Capcom calls their version.

    • There’s always the chance these modes were/are being made after the game went golden. No need to cry every time the word DLC is thrown out.

      • Its day one DLC… DAY ONE DLC! you really think they did not have time to put DAY ONE DLC in the disc and sell it to you for $60? …I would never pay $60 for a game anymore I wait until they drop to $20 for this very reason. NOTE** I am not getting this game btw its not RE.

    Maps…..As if I would ever buy maps.

    Well…PS3 is where all my Resident Evil buddies are so that’s the system I’m getting it for.

    This does kinda suck but hey on the bright side…it’s only timed exclusive so we are actually going to be able to get it unlike that Operation Raccoon City mess (although I probably wouldn’t have got DLC for that game considering the mess it was).

     I aint’ no fool. I’ll wait for the GOTY, gold, super or whatever edition they’ll release after with all DLC.

    Capcom never disappoints.
    They should just remake RE: Outbreak where DLC actually makes more sense
