Capcom are releasing a free update for Resident Evil 6 based largely on feedback they have received from gamers. Due for release in mid-December, the patch will feature improved camera controls, as many players have complained that the stationary camera leads to cheap deaths as enemies are able to sneak up behind out of your sight.
Also, the game’s secret story mode will be unlocked and playable from the start. At the moment, Ada Wong’s campaign is only playable once the three other story modes have been completed. Capcom are also including a new difficulty setting in their updated version, worryingly called “No Hope.” I think it’s safe to say that it’s going to be pretty damn hard.
Gamers were concerned that Capcom were planning to charge for downloadable content, particularly as the No Hope difficulty setting was present on the disc from the outset. However, the publisher have promised that the majority of on-disc DLC will be free of charge:
“While virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc.”
