Upcoming Resident Evil 6 patch unlocks Ada’s campaign, fixes camera

Written by: / / No Comments

The launch of Resident Evil 6 earlier this month saw the gaming community at large erupt with wildly differing opinions on Capcom’s latest zombie-themed horror shooter.

While the debate still rages on over whether or not it’s a worthy entry to the venerable series, the publisher is determined to continue to listen to fan-feedback and tweak the game with post-launch patch support.

With the announcement of a mid-December Resident Evil 6 patch for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, Capcom wrote in a statement:

“Capcom values user feedback on Resident Evil 6 and ResidentEvil.net and is working continuously to improve the experience for players.”

You can see what you’ll be getting with that patch with a few notes below:

  • Gamers will be able to adjust the camera to give a greater field of view as best suits their play style. Please note that this feature is still in development and may change without further notice before the title update is released.

  • 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.

Where do you sit on the Resident Evil 6 debate? Best ever? Middling at best? An enjoyable romp with room for improvement?

Tom’s review heaped praise on Capcom’s latest zombie effort, while El33tonline EiC Lisa is thoroughly enjoying the game’s campaigns.

Mull it over as you cast a gaze over the latest screens accompanying the patch news:
