Resident Evil 6 getting timed-exclusive modes for Xbox 360

Microsoft console version of Capcom's zombie shooter adding three modes called Survivors, Predator, and Siege sometime after launch next month.

Resident Evil 6 will add three timed-exclusive game modes for the Xbox 360 after the zombie shooter launches next month, according the game's Xbox.com landing page. A tweet from the official Resident Evil 6 Twitter account reveals that these modes will be called Survivors, Predator, and Siege.

Resident Evil 6 buddies up with Xbox 360 for timed-exclusive modes.

It is not clear how long these modes will be available only for the Xbox 360, and at the time of press, Microsoft had not responded to GameSpot's request for comment.

In the game's Survivors mode, when killed, players will respawn as an enemy character able to attack human players. Predator mode has one player taking on the role of the Ustanak, trying to take down human players. Lastly, Resident Evil 6's Siege mode has one side protecting a single non-playable character pitted against enemies attempting to kill that NPC.

Survivors, Predator, and Siege modes will support up to six players on maps from the game's Mercenaries mode.

The new game modes for Resident Evil 6 will not be the only timed-exclusives for the Xbox 360. In June during Microsoft's 2012 Electronic Entertainment Expo briefing, the company announced that downloadable content for Resident Evil 6 will come first to the Xbox 360.

Xbox 360 has the cross game party chat and a better online it doesn't need exclusives, the ps3 is boring to play alone when your playing single player games its so much better when your playing a single player game and chatting with friends its feels like your playing with them even if your not playing the same game and there is so much 3rd party support nowadays that you barely need many exclusives. The xbox 360 is a great console so is the ps3 but i prefer my xbox. Who cares about exclusives anymore with the great 3rd party line up of games we are getting

Microsoft has no choice but to do Times DLC cause they have no Exclusives. It's all bout Sony and there Playstation brand. Nothing else matters.

I played the demo, and I'm really not liking it so far. The camera is so bad it almost gave me a headache, it feels crammed and claustrophobic. The movement doesn't feel smooth, and the aiming doesn't feel right. It feels like a badly calibrated motion shooter, when I aim straight it feels like I'm aiming high. The melee combat seems alright so far though.

I'm sure this will be leaked on to torrents soon and then we will see if the content is indeed  "disc locked content" rather than "downloadable content". IF IT IS already on the disc i hope everybody just leaves it at the store, mods their consoles and pirates the shit outta it. Sort your shit out crapcom!

Is a shame many people think like you if only the same people do what I will do then capcom will stop been a whre and many other companies too although i must recognize Capcom is the biggest slt among the business.

Its offensive to sell you dlc even before releasing the damn thing is worse to sell you something that is in the hard copy and sell you to unlock it but is the worst  denied you content and to others dont; specially with the franchise become what it is because of sony ps1 ps2.

People should have more respect for themeselves a little bit of pride thats why rent the game you dont give yout money to them its a way to raise your voice when you get offended i have done it with GTA CD battlefield peace of mind comes when you dont surrender and eat whatever sht they want to.

Uuumm.. what?? Is this more crap that we have to pay for that should already be in the game? This is probably one of the reasons I didn't pre-order RE6. I'm tired of companies releasing 1/2 a game for full price and then making gamers pay another $20-$40 for extra content. This looks like the same @#$% Capcom did with Street Fighter -vs- Tekken.

It's just me or the RE franchise have really went down the drain after it became multiplatform? I have this feel that they bumped up the action on RE5 so they could compete in the xbox market (Halo, COD, HALO; HALO, COD; COD).

Hopefully they turn out to be more than just a tweaked mercenary mode like re5 vs was. Mercenaries was fun and all but I would've liked something extra that wasn't 95% mercenaries.

Before anyone continues bitching about microsoft shelling out franchises why dont you do some research instead of just being another bitching troll on the internet. Metal Gear solid Revengeance was just cancled for the xbox 360 in japan. so instead of complaining about early access why dont you think of the goods that come of it, we xbox gamers are essentially beta testing the content for you, by the time it goes up on the ps3 it will be patched from bugs and other problems that we on the xbox are going to have to deal with. so befor you continue complaining, be happy that youll be paying for completed and patched content while we xbox users will be spending our money for unpatched content and spending most of our time posting problems on forums and shit so that it can get fixed and we all can have a good gaming experience.

 And one more thing, you all are behaving just how skyrim ps3 users are acting about the skyrim dawngaurd dlc still being developed for the ps3. just because you dont have content with everyone else doesnt mean that microsoft is paying off or controlling other developers to knock off other consoles, THATS CORPERATE SABOTAGE, which is ILLEGAL.

so this game comes out on the 2nd of October maybe I'll trade in my Transfomers: Fall of Cybertron to get it and that is only because I'm a fan of the series and I was really disappointed in that RE: ORC game.

Am I the only one who doesn't really care about multiplayer? or the fact that a certain console has an exclusive or whatever? I mean, what happened to great games like

legacy of kain, megaman, the old resident evils. They never really had multiplayer and the games were perfect(for me at least).

The Xbox Live subscribers get this dlc first because they pay for their service and then Microsoft pays the developer for time exclusivity. This is one of the primary reasons that Xbox live is better than that security joke psn. We always get the dlc first. ROFL.

Why do I get the feeling that after this game comes to PC 6 months after its console release date I won't even get the option to buy this DLC like with Resident Evil 5?  "Thank you for buying Resident Evil 5 on PC but no DLC for you"

Can someone tell me what is "timed-exclusive"..?Thanks.

 @thereal-15-cent My thoughts exactly. I could barely notice anything but the terrible camera and wonky animations.

 

Leon's campaign felt alright, Jake was so-so and Chris was just an utter disaster. Based on the test though I still prefer RE5 by a mile.

 @onixevil 

Many of the PS2 games don't play online anymore either. It'll definitely take another 5-7 years before online for the XBox 360 to start tapering down. It's not going to have immediately after the new system launches. I don't care about the timed exclusive content for RE6. I'm pissed that the content being released is probably already on the disk and you'll have to pay another $20 to unlock it.

DiamondDM13

 @Uruca They should just get back to PS exclusive, make it less action based, and I'm sure they would be far better. I actually find it weird that they actually waste their time working on a Co-Op game for Xbox when half the people won't even bother to use Co-Op...

Thinking about how much you need to pay to the exclusives...

250 for the console, plus 60 for the Gold membership, plus 60 for the game, plus 20(?) for the bonus content...Sounds very reasonable to me...

 @SiLenTWarrior29 you should be complaining about Disc locked content rather than just timed exclusives. 

 

Technically those 3 games modes has been developed at the same time with the game.

 @ScorchTheHeghog   STFU kid. I own ps3 and 360 and I would be pissed too if I was a ps3 only user and wasn't able to get everything the 360 gets at the same time of release. Your logic is retarded. For one, games shouldn't be release with bugs/glitches and should be at LEAST 95% without bugs/glitches. Secondly, most games barley have any bugs. For the games that do, you say 360 owners essentially 'beta test" the games before ps3 gets the release??? LOL go tell that to the THPSHD ps3 owners. That game came out over a month after the 360 version, and theres a ton of bugs and glitches its terrible. Now STFU and sit down before commenting dumb crap.

 @buying1999 I'm an xbox gamer, not a ps3, so chillax before you get all console wars with me after your read this. psn was hacked yes....but so was Xbox live dude. and ps3 gets its own share of timed exclusive content, it may not be as much as the xbox but its still there. they get other stuff for non-console exclusive games too, like all of the assassins creed multiplayer beta's since AC:Brotherhood. Ps3 is just as good a system as Xbox they both have there ups and downs. not much we can do about it.

@BlackLense: It's exclusive for one console for a period of time... once that time has elapsed it will be available of other consoles.

 @PrpleTrtleBuBum

 Yeah, I think the series is getting worse with each release though. Fighting enemies with guns is just dull. And I changed my mind about the melee, it doesn't feel smooth. I'm hoping they made some major improvements since the demo.

 Sorry bud but i just got done playing code veronica and it was dull as ditchwater compared to res 4. I think there needs to be a good mix of action, story and puzzle, but a lot less of go here talk to this person backwards and forwards, repeat for every item needed in a lot of todays games.

ScorchTheHeghog

 @HaK-ForgoTT3n 1- Not a kid dumb dumb. 2- YOUR logic is retarded, no game is 95% without glitches upon release but that's the beauty of online updates to patch them.

-we live in a world where developers are going to compete for costumers, that's the shitty truth and there's not much we can do about it. there are games where a system will get timed exclusive content and there are games with system exclusive content. its up to the developers to decide what goes where and what gets what and how it gets it. the costumers that buy from them have to go with the flow or do our best to make ourselves heard to make it so it doesn't happen again. for now ps3 owners should be happy that its only "timed" instead of "system" exclusive. yes it sucks and i would definitely be upset just the same if it were the other way around for the xbox or if i had a ps3. but its not up to us. make yourself heard, thats why there are forums like the one we're on......i wasn't going to be "that guy" but screw it. Now STFU and Calm the fuck down, quit getting all ticked over a forum post, you dont have to use slander and vulgarity to make your comment seem smarter it makes it look like it was posted by an internet troll that everyone is going to ignore, i know i did, why do you think it took me as long as it did to reply to you. be civil and i wont hesitate to have a discussion with you on any matter. in fact i look forward to your reply as long as, once again, your civil about it. :)

 @kennythomas26 sales for the xbox 360 games are dramatically lower than ps3 related game sales, they feel they can both save and make more money by making ps3 exclusive over there

 @ScorchTheHeghog  

It all boils down to personal choice.

While you might enjoy paying $60 for was is essentially two games (SP and MP), others don't. Give me a game with 10 good hours of SP for $30, and if I want to spend an extra $20+ (plus $15 for every map pack released later) to have MP, I'll do it. Others have no problem admitting they bought the new BF or COD just to play online, and never touch the SP unless they want trophies or achievements. Again, a personal choice that has no right or wrong answer.

 @ScorchTheHeghog  Wow kid, you're a loser.  I didn't even bother reading your 4 page message to me...get a life. I did read the first couple of sentences though, and NO I NEVER said I don't like sonic. Its was good when it was 16 bit and on dreamcast, thats it. Sonic 3d games suck balls.

ScorchTheHeghog
ScorchTheHeghog

 @HaK-ForgoTT3n  @ScorchTheHeghog 1) yes we shouldn't have to wait for a patch but we do, every game released on ps3 and xbox has had at least 1 patch since its release. 2) sonic is an awesome series but i guess your too simple minded to appreciate different styles of gaming, hell i bet your one of the gamers who believes better graphics means a better game lol. 3) we shouldn't have to buy both consoles, so good job completely missing the point on that but thats what you get for coming up with your own interpretations for what people are saying to you. 4) how the fuck does my saying that people should be happy its timed and not console exclusive make me out to be some prepubescent kid? legal adult right here, whose way more mature than you. this whole bullshit argument started because you admitted you'd be pissed if you were a ps3 owner and weren't able to get everything the 360 gets at the time of release, and now your saying that it should be the ps3 who gets if first. quit changing your story. what so its bullshit for the 360 to get early access but its no problem if the ps3 gets it just because it started out on the playstation. and the only reason that it was originally on the playstaytion is because of a contract between capcom had with sony that capcom wanted to break after RE2. 5) what a dumb ass i am? your making yourself out to be a dumb ass because instead of addressing the argument at hand that we started with, all you can do is attempt to attack my age and weather or not im a virgin. thanks for trying to seem like you can come up with a comeback but you've proven that all you can do is sink to immature shit thats been repeated more than two girls one cup's view count. your so low on comebacks you have to stick your own opinions in, why not throw in a your mom joke while your at it you unoriginal bastard , "I don't know what shitty games you play. Sonic lol?" HA! your opinion doesn't mean shit to me so i cant even comprehend why your even attempting to add it into your argument. but hay why not since your doing it why dont I? it is my professional opinion that your a fucking moron, probably beaten as a child, or neglected, and grew up being raised by the tv, amazing enough that you could even afford one, which soon transpired to you dedicating every moment of your pathetic existence playing video games in order to fill that gaping whole in your life left behind by the absence of any human appreciation of your said pathetic existence, and in the proses developing that horrible Nintenditess that your fighting right now. and due to the nurturing of said games you found yourself being completely offset by you not having everything you wanted in life and than became that the little online bitch that you are today. and as your jerking off to your games you realize that maybe, "holly shit im a fucking looser" and in order to make yourself feel like you have a purpose in life to keep you from committing suicide, which you most likely constantly wonder about, you realize also that you can spawn your Shit to the far fucking regions of the internet, which is where your life has so miserably left you. This is all of course but my own opinion but hey you know what im entitled to it and i could give less than two shits about what you think, say, and do with your life. so have fun wagging that holy war upon the internet your so desperately fighting against. I may be an equalist who believes that we should all be equal in what we do, give, and receive. but hay if not being equal give you a purpose to live by the internet forums, then so be it, i wouldn't want you to loose what little faith you have in life now would I. either way your a waist of my time and too be honest im amazed that i even had the horrible idea to even start with your sorry ass. i would invite you to reply but like i said life is short and your a waist of that precious time, id hate to spend even a minute more of my life dealing with your unfortunate ability to access the internet. but hay that why God created the ignore button on your profile, Thank you oh holy one XD. have fun sending me replies i will never get and have fun finding others to TROLLLLLLLLLL. (i can use the word if i damn well please :).)

 

Sincerely yours,

                               the guy who will never have to deal with you again. :D

 @ScorchTheHeghog #1) You shouldn't have to wait for a patch after paying $60 for the game in the first place. And YES, a lot of games are 95% perfect when released. I don't know what shitty games you play. Sonic lol? #2) Customers don't have to "go with the flow" All they need to do is buy both consoles. #3) "ps3 owners should be happy that its only timed instead of system exclusive"??? What??? Yea, you're definitely under 15. Last time I checked, Resident evil was a playstation exclusive at a time, along with gamecube. If anything PS3 should get DLC first, not xbox. #4) "Slander" and "vulgarity" is not used to make my comment sound dumber, its used to make you realize how pissed I am of how dumb you are. #5) "internet troll"? Only 10 year olds use those words. If you're older, I feel bad for you that you're still a virgin. #6) This is a video game forum. Nobody is "civil". If you want to talk to me, PM me. Thanks =)

@franzito: Not temporary at all... Knowing Capcon it'll be on the disc anyway... the timed exclusive just means that it will only be available on the 360 for a certain period.. exclusive period expires and it becomes available to PS3 owners as well.
