Resident Evil 6 preorder maps now available for all

Mercenaries mode maps High Seas Fortress, Rail Yard, and Catacombs now available on Xbox 360, PS3 for $1 each.

Resident Evil 6 players who did not preorder the new shooter missed out on three Mercenaries mode maps. Now, those environments are available to all.

The three maps--High Seas Fortress, Rail Yard, and Catacombs--are now available for purchase on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for $1 each.

Catacombs was previously only available for those who preordered at GameStop, while Amazon customers received the High Seas Fortress environment, and Best Buy purchasers scored the Rail Yard space.

More DLC and tweaks for Resident Evil 6 are on the way. Capcom last week announced that a camera-adjustment update is scheduled to arrive sometime in December alongside a new No Hope difficulty and the Ada Wong campaign.

Additionally, new game modes called Survivors, Predator, and Siege for Resident Evil 6 are in the pipeline. No release date for this content has been announced, though the modes will launch as timed-exclusives for Xbox 360.

Not that I believed for one second these maps would be free but it's not everyday you see DLC for $1.

this was probably the on disc DLC that was suppose to be "FREE".

 

LOLOLOOLOLOLOLOL. i dont even know why fanboys are still defending capcom and this crappy game.

So much for being exclusive, I guess they still want people to play this game

I don't support this kind of BS clusters. I'd rather buy the complete edition of the game. This kind of business practice only cost you extra money and extra hard drive space.

I wish pre-order content would die all together. Sick of it.

I think Capcom might be feeling sick, $1 a pop? Sounds a little to good to be true, but eh, sounds fair.

 

I also thought Seas Fortress was Sen's Fortress for a moment then, to much Dark Souls. :D

1 dollar for DLC? These maps are probably a waste.

This kid writing these articles really does need to do some research. Calling RE 6 a shooter? He doesn't seem to have much gaming experience, and is more just a headline chaser getting paid per article.

 

As far as the article, not buying Capcom, don't care.

"Resident Evil 6 players who did not preorder the new shooter" LOL ohhhh man, I never thought I'd see the day where 1) Resident Evil would now be considered a shooter and 2) Where the writer of an article finally called it a shooter after all these other shotty writers claim it's still a "survival/horror" game. When it comes to the maps, who cares? By now a majority of the people found out RE6 was a lackluster piece of boring crap. People should already realize that Mercenaries on this game is severely flawed with it's terrible inclusion of the QTE's. So many cheap deaths, wasted points, and wasted time to even bother with such a terrible game mode.

Since I'm a fan, I'll only be happy for these at a GOOD price. I think there should also b updates on the game to work solidly like Resi Evil 5. However it could up the game's score. I'm still thankful...

Just recently got the High Seas map and I'm amazed of the scale of the map. I wish Capcom would bring Slayers to the Ps3 already.

Only $1 a map? wow, why couldnt GOOD games get deals like that? lol I miss RE... RE5 upset me, this new so called RE just killed it for me. I like how the idea of "survival horror" has changed. RE is more like a "quicktime event laden 3rd person shooter" or QELTPS as we call it in "the biz" ;)

If I cared about Mercs then I'd be all over this, but the RE6 was good even without it

This game is so much shit its not even fun to see what theyve turned one of my most favorite game serie into. Ive rented RE6 on PS3 yesterday and I dont even have to will to get through that fucking mess that the Leon campaign is and people say its the best of the 4 LOL. RE6 is a fucking disgrace to what resident evil used to be. ONLY good point is that the zombies and the game LOOK awesome. The gameplay on the other hand is utter fucking repetitive,clunky and boring fucking mindless shooting and NOTHING close to the masterpiece that the older titles used to be. I just went through RE 0 to Code veronica X on PS3 and ffs when I jumped to the 4th I couldnt help but feel disgusted and stop playing it. This franchise died on the 4th. Capcom ruined one of the greatest and atmospheric game ever. GJ.  now a HD remake of the 2nd and 3rd please before I completely lose faith in gaming.

Ok it's time to give credit to the author.

I don't know if any of you have been noticing but Eddie Makuch has seemed to be the only author posting articles for a while.

He's had a few hiccups recently but he seems to have corrected it and is now posting great articles one after the next.

It seems as if he is the only one with news around Gamespot lately.

 

So for basically single handedly keeping everyone informed on gaming news at least on Gamespot's home page, I congratulate and give much Kudos to you Eddie Makuch.  May you have great success wherever you go.

 You are entitled to your opinion but there are crappier games than RE 6! If liking a game makes you fanboy, then you are as much as fanboy as everybody else.

 @jark888 Agreed. Even if the price is insignificant like here, it still really annoys me to download extra junk and that we don't get the complete game from the start.

 

Big expansions are fine but this kind of micro-content is just terrible.

 @Gelugon_baat True. Still better than most of whats out there. Though I do miss the days of free content

 @SolidTy It's very much a shooter. If you still think RE is a horror game, you're not very observant

 @SolidTy From the chunk of what I played I thought RE6 adhered more to a shooter format than to anything else.

 @SolidTy Resident Evil 6 (バイオハザード6?, Japanese title: Biohazard 6) is a "third-person shooter" video game in the Resident Evil series, developed and published by Capcom. - Wikipedia

 

What is it then if not a shooter?

 @BKd12 You realise they are doing this because of the shocking reviews for res 6 lolIts compensation....but they still want you to pay haha

Even through Hurricane Sandy, he still has provided great consistent  articles.

 

I hope Sandy hasn't affected any of you and keep on gaming people : )

 @foxrock66  @SolidTy I call it action horror. The word shooter just give me the picture of Call of Duty. You can't fully deny that there's no horror element in the game. And when you recall a bunch of Quick Time Events, you would see quite a few actions (e.g. controlling helicopter or climbing on the plane and grab a parachute, etc). Besides, most pure shooting games don't have that many ways to melee the opponents.

 @RaveNRolla  @doraemon1987  @BKd12 Also Kotaku, GiantBomb, Joystiq, Eurogamer, Destructoid, Quarter to Three, Playstation Lifestyle. Those are just a few of the 6/10 and below review scores counted on GameRankings. It currently has a 67% GameRanking rating for 360 and a 76% for PS3 (this is because there are fewer reviews posted than 360). the reviews are generally "Meh" to "Bad", with a few high praise sites and publication scattered about.

 @CreaznStudio  @dRuGGeRnaUt I currently have it in my ps3 and I havent made it past chapter 2 of Leons campaign cause Im just too disgusted by this mindless fast-paced mess which I never wanted my HORROR serie which required SKILLS,THINKING,SOLVING PUZZLES,EXPLORATION,SAVING AMMOS,NOT GETTING BIT would turn in a button mash fest filled with fucking linearity and cliche from movies. I dont feel like playing it except when with a friend and I have to bring it back to the store tomorrow and Im deff NEVER renting it again. Yes, I have played this so called 'game'
