Capcom got rumbled a couple of days ago when a modder datamined the Resident Evil 6 disc to uncover tracces of on-disc DLC, and they've now confirmed that the disc does hold a super-hard difficulty mode called No Hope Left, and also a co-op mode for Ada's campaign. It'll also allow players to dive into Ms. Wong's campaign from the start rather than having to complete all of the other story threads first.
Oh, and they're releasing it for free.
“Some data of this update is on the disc, but said data is incomplete and requires the actual download to access,” a post on Capcom Unity revealed. "Mercenaries costumes are residentevil.net unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies."
“Future paid DLC – like the multiplayer modes we revealed a while ago – is not on the disc. We said as much a month ago, but that point may have been lost in the shuffle."
Can you feel that? That's the feeling of not being oppressively monetised. It tastes like freedom. Almost.
