Capcom has announced that a free Resident Evil 6 title update is scheduled for mid-December, which adds the on-disc 'No Hope' difficulty setting and unlocks Ada Wong's campaign from the start with a new co-op partner. More excitingly, however, it will also allow players to change the position of the much-maligned camera.
According to Capcom, players will be able to adjust the camera to give a greater field of view to suit their play style, which should hopefully allow us to keep bosses in frame and navigate interiors with greater ease. Apparently the feature is "still in development and may change without further notice before the title update is released," but it should come as a welcome improvement for many Resi 6 owners.
Here are the rest of the features, as listed by the press release:
- Subtitle options have been improved so that English language audio can be combined with subtitles in an alternative language.
- As recently announced, Ada Wong’s campaign will be unlocked from the start and have an optional player-controlled co-op partner added. It was previously necessary to complete all three other campaigns in order to unlock Ada’s story.
- ‘No Hope’ difficulty level will be added above the existing levels, for players who want an extreme challenge.
Though we felt that Resi 6 wasn't a return to form by any means, we were broadly impressed with its unexpected fun factor as a cooperative action game. You can read our full Resident Evil 6 review for more details.
