Capcom Promises Everything on RE6′s Disc is Free DLC,
A few days ago, I wrote about how modders had found extra content on Resident Evil 6‘s disc. Well today, Capcom has issued an announcement that two pieces of content–the “No Hope” Difficulty and the ability to play Ada’s campaign from the beginning of the game with a co-op partner–will not cost anything, but require a download to finish the code. The paid DLC, which includes new multiplayer modes, that is coming (first to the Xbox 360, then to the PS3) is not on the disc at all. This does clash with modder claims that Survivor, Predator, and Siege ARE partially on the disc, but to be fair, none of these modes were finished enough to be completely playable and only basic information about trophies and game modes were confirmed for a couple of these modes.
However, I am glad that Capcom is releasing free content and at least taking a step towards a better DLC policy. While I didn’t care for Resident Evil 6, I am interested in seeing how Ada’s campaign, which I felt was the highlight of the game, works with a second player. Please share your thoughts in the comments below and keep following Blistered Thumbs for all the latest gaming news. The free DLC does not have an official release date but, according to Capcom, will be released, “soon.”
