The Windows PC version of Resident Evil 6 will launch with an exclusive mode called The Mercenaries: No Mercy, and a new multiplayer mode called Siege will be available soon, Capcom announced today.
No Mercy is a more challenging version of the existing Mercenaries mode, with extra enemies that offer opportunities for skilled players to rack up higher scores.
All Resident Evil 6 owners will have the chance to purchase a separate mode, Siege, the game's fourth downloadable multiplayer mode. Siege pits two teams against each other with an imperiled AI-controlled BSAA agent caught in the middle. One team plays as creatures trying to kill the agent, while the other plays as Resident Evil 6 characters in an attempt to keep the soldier alive. Siege will be available in March on PlayStation 3 for $3.99 (€3.99 in Europe and £3.19 in the U.K.) and Xbox 360 for 320 Microsoft Points.
The three other multiplayer add-ons — the Survivors, Predator and Onslaught modes — launched Dec. 18 exclusively on Xbox 360. They will all be released on PS3 next month, each for $3.99 (£3.19 in the U.K. and €3.99 in Europe).
Resident Evil 6 launches digitally on Windows PC March 22 for $39.99 in North America, £19.99 in the U.K. and €29.99 in Europe. All four downloadable multiplayer modes will be made available on PC "shortly after" the PC launch, according to Capcom. Any future title updates for the console versions will be provided free to PC players.
Check out 23 screenshots of the PC version above. Capcom also released screenshots and a trailer for the Siege mode, along with images of the Mercenaries: No Mercy mode.
