Resident Evil 6 Siege mode DLC revealed, PC version gets 'The Mercenaries: No Mercy' mode

Console DLC expansion coming in March - trailer

Capcom has made a duo of announcements for Resident Evil 6 players on consoles and those planning to grab the PC version in March.


For console players, Capcom has revealed a new 'Siege' mode, which will be released as a paid download content in March costing, 320 MS Points/$3.99/€3.99/£3.19.

Siege mode is an online multiplayer mode for two to six players. "Siege sees a lone AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent in trouble and in need of help," explains Capcom. "Players will split into two teams with one assuming control of enemy creatures who are trying to take down the rookie, while the other team selects playable characters from the main game and must keep him alive.

"Each game consists of two rounds with teams switching between the human and enemy roles. The human team wins a round if the BSAA agent survives, while the enemies win if they can defeat him."

For PC players awaiting the game's release on March 22, Capcom has announced the PC version will come with a new mode, 'The Mercenaries: No Mercy'. It's said to be a more challenging version of the existing 'Mercenaries' mode with "more enemies on screen than ever before", but also "the opportunity to rack up even higher combo scores".

The publisher will also release a free PC benchmark test in February, which will allow you see how Resi 6 will run on your rig ahead of its launch.

Here's a Siege mode trailer:
