Resident Evil 6 patch set to unlock Ada Wong campaign, improve camera

A patch for Resident Evil 6 coming in mid-December will unlock the Ada Wong campaign, improve the camera, implement a "No Hope" difficulty level and add subtitle options — all changes that are being made "in response to player feedback," Capcom said today.

Currently, Resident Evil 6 players must complete the game's three main campaigns, which feature Leon Kennedy, Chris Redfield and Jake Muller, before they can access the fourth campaign, which stars Ada Wong. After the patch, her storyline will be available to play from the start, and players can bring a friend with them for co-op play. Check out the two-player action in the first 11 screenshots above.

The patch will also pull back the camera angle to widen the field of view, resolving another complaint from Resident Evil 6 players. The rest of the screenshots above show the minimum and maximum ranges of the camera, although Capcom noted that this feature is still in development and may change between now and when the update launches.

In addition, the patch will include the previously announced "No Hope" difficulty level for those who want "an extreme challenge," and allow players to use English-language audio with subtitles in other languages.

According to Capcom's announcement of the patch, the company "values user feedback on Resident Evil 6 and ResidentEvil.net and is working continuously to improve the experience for players."
