Earlier this week, it was revealed that Resident Evil 6 had on-disc DLC which upset a lot of gamers thinking it was a repeat of Capcom’s handling of Street Fighter X Tekken DLC.
In a post on Capcom Unity, the company has revealed that all content on the disc will be free and will be patched into the game with a title update.
The content include a new No Hope difficulty as well as co-op for Ada’s campaign which additionally will unlock it straight away (currently you need to finish all three campaigns to unlock Ada’s).
Capcom clarified: “some data of this update is on the disc, but said data is incomplete and requires the actual download to access. But again, free. Mercenaries costumes are residentevil.net unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies.”
“Future paid DLC – like the multiplayer modes we revealed a while ago – is not on the disc. We said as much a month ago, but that point may have been lost in the shuffle.”
