Hey there, Unity!

Chiming in just before NYCC (we have a lot going this year ) to update everyone on some new RE6 content, and clarification on how this content is delivered. First and foremost, two free DLC items will arrive as a title update soon; No Hope difficulty mode (which is, y’know, super hard) and a co-op partner for Ada’s campaign. Said campaign was meant as a solo affair for Ms Wong, but odds are you’d like to play through it again with a pal – soon you can!

Additionally, this update will make Ada’s campaign available from the start; currently you must complete all three of the primary campaigns to unlock this bonus. So, a little something for those who aren’t able to blaze through the whole thing in a weekend – if you’re taking your time, you’ll be able to access Ada’s story without having to finish the others. And may I say, her campaign is pretty awesome.

Now, the clarification: some data of this update is on the disc, but said data is incomplete and requires the actual download to access. But again, free. Mercenaries costumes are residentevil.net unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies.

Future paid DLC – like the multiplayer modes we revealed a while ago – is not on the disc. We said as much a month ago, but that point may have been lost in the shuffle.

The tl;dr version is – RE6 on-disc DLC is free, paid DLC is not on the disc.

Now let’s work on those Mercenaries scores!
