Yesterday, Capcom released the first title update for Resident Evil 6 and they have now announced that three new multiplayer modes are available exclusively on the Xbox 360:
"Beginning today, Tuesday, December 18, Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft owners can exclusively experience three new exciting online multiplayer modes for Resident Evil 6.
In a series of quick fire rounds, up to six players take their turn as the fearsome Ustanak with full access to its weapons, while the others must avoid capture or worse. Human players score points for successful attacks, but lose points for being caught or taken down. The match is over once all have played as the Ustanak, with the participant with the most points crowned as the winner.
This is the Resident Evil 6 take on the classic solo and team based deatchmatch mode. Like Predator, you’ll compete for the highest score, but once a player is taken out, they respawn as one of the game’s enemy characters, and must then defeat another human character in order to return to the fray as their original player character. Survivors is available for two to six players.
Chaining combos is the key to success in this two player mode where each must clear waves of oncoming enemies. The twist comes when a player completes a combo chain as this will send enemies over to their opponent’s screen. Expect the balance of power to constantly shift in this intense addition to the Resident Evil 6 experience.
Each mode is individually priced at 320 Microsoft Points or all three can be purchased together as a bundle pack at the value price of 720 Microsoft Points on the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360."
