Three New Resident 6 Online Multiplayer Modes Out Today for Xbox 360

Capcom announced today the addition of three new online multiplayer modes for Resident Evil 6—available, for now, exclusively for Xbox 360.

Here are the official descriptions of each mode:

  • Predator: 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.
  • Survivors: 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.
  • Onslaught: 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.

Individually, the modes cost 320 Microsoft Points. They can also be purchased as a bundle for 720 points.

When PS3 owners will get their hands on these multiplayer modes remains unannounced.
