The modes are Predator, Survivor and Onslaught, and they will cost 320 Microsoft Points each or 720 Microsoft Points as a value bundle. You’ll be able to download the add-on content on December 18th for the Xbox 360.

Here are brief descriptions of the three new modes:

Predator – Available for two to six players, in Predator one player takes on the role of the Ustanak, the fearsome B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller throughout his campaign, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W. in its tracks, or at least survive until the end of the session.

Survivors – Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.

Resident Evil 6 Survivor Mode

Onslaught – Onslaught sees two players go head-to-head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.

Capcom will also release a free title update for both PS3 and Xbox 360 on December 17th. The “hefty” update will include “a new option allowing players to adjust the in-game camera to get a greater field of view, a new option allowing you to combine English language audio with subtitles in other languages, an optional, player-controlled co-op partner for the Ada campaign, and the extremely challenging No Hope Left difficulty mode.”
