Resident Evil 6 gets camera tweaks, Ada Wong co-op in December

Resident Evil 6 sold quite well, despite some mixed critical reception. But Capcom isn't just cutting and running from the longest, most over-the-top entry in its horror series yet. In fact, it has a free update planned for mid-December which will add a new difficulty setting, a co-op partner for lonesome Ada Wong, and even tweaked camera options to the game.

Capcom outlined the updates on its Unity Blog this week, the most notable of which is likely a new, pulled-back camera setting. The default view will still be available, but players who want a wider field of vision, or a better look at Leon's tush (hey, he's not a bad looking guy in a late-90s-Leo-DiCaprio sort of way), should be pleased.

Ada Wong's campaign will be unlocked from the beginning, instead of requiring players to finish Leon, Chris, and Jake's. She won't have to go it alone any more, either, as the patch will add in a generic spec-ops co-op fellow for bioweapon slaying with friends. Mr. Tacticool is similarly optional for those who want the original, solitary experience.

Lastly, the game will get a No Hope difficulty above the current Professional, for players who want an additional challenge. Unfortunately, there's still no word on when the game's competitive multiplayer paid DLC will make an appearance.

    This sounds pretty cool. I have yet to master mercenaries (once I figure out the layout it'll be easier) or play in a mode higher than vet or normal so hopefully by then I won't have played through everything. I was hoping to hear word on alt. costumes in Campaign however. I want to see that scene between Chris and Leon in their alt costumes. It would be an embodiment of one of those ridiculous "who would win" arguments.

    Should be amateur or normal, not vet.

    They should make HUNK her partner :D

    By "free update" you mean a patch, right? Because there's nothing quite like getting a messed up game at full price, only to get a patch disguised as a favor or some kind of DLC. Yeah, but anyway, I'll see them at Resident Evil 7, and hopefully it will go better next time.

    How about they release a version without co-op? Or, maybe a version that's an actual survival horror game?

    That's awesome I'm deeply in love with this game right now and having co-op in Ada's campaign will be cool because her campaign was pretty fun. Have yet to try professional mode out but if it's as big of a step up as Verteran was from Normal then I'll be looking forward to the "No Hope Left" difficulty. Right now I'm I've beaten Leon's and Chris' campaigns alone on Vet and it was hard at nice but still way fun. Just started on Jake's campaign today once I beat them all on Vet, of course I'll move up to the big scary professional difficulty.

    Whoops, take out the I've, and replace the nice with times. Was in a rush when I typed that.

    Coll now I can have fun with the only thing enjoyable about this game, the co-op and Leon's ass.
