Capcom has been on a roll with great PC ports for their console games. Resident Evil 6 is no exception to that rule. Like Devil May Cry before it, Resident Evil 6 for the PC is the definitive version of the game. That is, until an “Ultimate Edition” of the game is announced (this is Capcom, after all). Reside...
There is an added bonus for those who decide to buy Resident Evil 6 for PC. One of the modes in Resident Evil 6, Mercenaries Mode, is receiving a little star treatment from Left 4 Dead. In a special mode within Resident Evil 6 on PC, you can play as the cast of Left 4 Dead as playable characters. The characters you will be able to use are Coach, Nick, Ellis, and Rochelle. In addition to these extra players, zombie hordes will be increased to match the intensity and ferocity of those you would normally find in Left 4 Dead. Finally, some new undead faces will appear in the special crossup, notably the Witch and the Mini-Tank of Left 4 Dead fame.
We’ve seen plenty of games do crossovers with Capcom over the years, but nothing quite like this! Both Capcom and Valve have proudly announced that both Resident Evil 6 and Left 4 Dead 2 will be holding a crossover in each other’s games, switching things up for fans of these two major zombie franchises.
Resident Evil fans, rejoice! Resident Evil 6 released for Xbox 360 and PS3 back on the 2'nd of October last year. While some complained about the changes to the formula, others thought it was a great survival horror/action title. It was certainly a fun romp for co-op play. In case you haven't read our review, you can do so here.
The Xbox Live Ultimate Game Sale continues today with 50%-75% discounts on several Resident Evil games. Half of them feature co-op, oh, happy day!

It has been a small wait for PlayStation 3 owners, but now they can finally grab the latest Resident Evil 6 DLC modes available on other platforms. Capcom will also be putting Mercenaries maps onto online stores next month for all consoles.
Put your average PC gamer up against your average console gamer and what have you got? Not two pasty looking blokes in their 20s, but different gaming audiences, with differing tastes. Capcom certainly believe this to be true and they consider the PC gamer to be a little hardier. The PC version of Resident Evil 6 will have an exclusive super tough version of Mercenaries Mode called 'No Mercy'.
Though a long time coming, PC gamers will finally get the chance to download their own version of Resident Evil 6 early into next year. At the same time, Capcom is continuing to add more content to the current console version in the next few weeks.
Three Resident Evil 6 maps for the “Mercenaries” game mode have now hit the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace for purchase. Originally, these maps were only included along with those who pre-ordered the game through exclusive retailers. Now, we can all enjoy these maps with everyone else and get the full experience of this game mode with our co-op partners.
Based on much player feedback received by Capcom, the developer will release a free update this coming December for Resident Evil 6 to address the main concerns being made and improve on a few inconveniences in gameplay.
Resident Evil 6 has been a polarizing release for the series, but one thing is for certain - it's loaded with co-op goodness. We've compiled a handy FAQ as a compendium to our database entries. This is everything you need to know about Resident Evil 6's cooperative experience spelled out in plain English.
An upcoming title update will add even more co-op to Resident Evil 6. A new playable character will be available for Ada Wong's previously single-player only campaign. The yet to be named character will make Ada's adventure the fourth playable campaign in Capcom's action-packed horror franchise. This update will also include access to the "No Hope Left" (AKA super hard) difficulty.
Opening up the Resident Evil 6 box, it looks quite empty. We've got a disc and a card for a Blu-Ray movie...and that's it. No manual to be seen. That's ok right? There must be an in game manual, something EA Sports has been doing for the past few years. Nope - nada - we are manual free here folks. What gives Capcom?
When Resident Evil 5 was released a few years back, many fans of the series scoffed at the new direction the game was taking. An action based cooperative shooter with horror elements, leaving behind the slower paced horror and perhaps the best game of the series in RE4. Resident Evil 6 expands on the legacy that five created, with a stronger focus on co-op gameplay but bringing in characters from numerous Resident Evil games to appease fans.
Remember that three stage battle at the end of Return of the Jedi? Pretty cool, right? That's what I'm reminded of when I watch the latest trailer for Resident Evil 6. There's a minute and a half of rising tension along four different story lines. They come crashing together in another minute and a half of screaming, explosions, and mutations. Watch the video and someone please tell me what's going on.
