Play the all-new Predator, Survivors, and Onslaught modes.

Capcom will deliver new multiplayer content for Resident Evil 6 on December 18, available first on Xbox 360, and at a later date for PlayStation 3.

The content consists of the multiplayer modes Predator, Survivors, and Onslaught, priced at 320 Microsoft Points each, or 720 Microsoft Points for all three together.

Capcom’s official descriptions follow:

Predator: 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.

Survivors: takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.

Onslaught: sees two players go head-to-head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.

See gameplay clips of each mode below. See screenshots at the gallery.

    eh… doesn’t really look that great…

    I probably would have sold my copy by then…

    First for X360, and PS version later? As if it isn’t obvious enough that RE6 is pandering to western gamers who play mostly shooters…

    And meanwhile, I STILL can’t change outfits in campaign…

    I wonder how long it’ll take to come to the PS3. I’m interested.

    Doesn’t look really great. And I’m guessing MS regretted getting timed exclusive for RE6 lol.

    just finished the campaigned.

    the game is good, but i was really disappointed about the pacing :(

    RE4 is much better, heck i could say RE5 did some things better than RE6.

    and wtf is the Mercenaries sooo bare bones.

    only 3 maps and few modes?? wtf.

    you have a 600 staff that work on this game and it was barebones as hell.

    where’s the infinite weapons? no more upgrades? wtf capcom.

    RE6 is definitely gonna be my last RE game until they go back to the original formula.

    if people love the RE4 style, then just make a separate full Mercenaries game.

    the style fits much better than the single player.

    i’ll probably wait for the Gold Edition to put every RE character out there.

    or just make a dedicated Mercenaries FULL game with Raide mode and death matches as well as co-op and survival.

    using RE6 mechanics but much smoother and faster, i would instantly buy that!

  • still waiting for the ‘gold edition’ which will come with all these ‘dlc’. :D
