Resident Evil 6 'Siege' mode coming later

Capcom confirms game type previously planned to launch with first DLC this month now slated for sometime in the future.

Resident Evil 6's Siege mode will be available "at a later date," Capcom has confirmed with GameSpot. Further details on the content's price and availability will be shared in the future.

The Siege mode for Resident Evil 6 was announced in September as being part of the first downloadable content for the game. However, Capcom made no mention of it yesterday when revealing that this expansion would arrive December 18 for the Xbox 360.

Instead, Siege was replaced by a previously unannounced Onslaught mode. If Siege mode remains in its original form, it will have one side protecting a single non-playable character pitted against enemies attempting to kill that NPC.

I played the demo & I feel like it was one of the biggest waste of 15-20 mins in my life. I feel bad for anyone that bought this full price

I literally couldn't give two shits, RE6 has been a major disappointment for me personally and I really wish I'd have had the free time to finish it sooner so I could get rid of it.  It's a major shame though cos I've been a fan since the beginning, RE1 was the first game I ever bought on the PS1 and I bought the directors cut edition and then again on the Gamecube cos I loved it and the subsequent games up to No. 4 just about, but 5 and 6 have been pretty awful, Capcom have lost their way I think, perhaps watching too many Jerry Bruckheimer movies and thinking that's what people want

It's kinda sad that Capcom thought a game as bad as RE6 would still attract further revenue through DLC. I hated it so much that I wanted to trade it in for Lego Lord of the Rings and I have been playing the series since the first game.

They should also add more co-op content, and really improve agent hunt because AH is actually really hilarious (a little frustrating at times) to play since you're essentially griefing other players haha...

How about making this DLC: "Good Mode", and it makes this game into an actual RE game? There you go Capcom, you can have that idea royalty-free.

This reminds me of a mini game of RE series, like something you would see in an arcade, There is no meat to the RE series anymore, and it's now served in thin little piece and the big meat and potato package of the campaign mode is just rotten. My best and most enjoyable series is now a big pile of $#!t.

 

Don't get me wrong this looks fun nd is a fun little addition to a game but the main game is just horrible. I'm still a fan and hope they can turn it around but I might be forcing my self to stay postive with the RE series.

If the game wasn't such a disappointment I might actually consider getting some DLC.

 @pathaze Try actually playing the game for more then 15-20 minutes and realize that it's not a remake of RE 1, take off your nostalgia glasses and learn to adapt to games changing. i feel bad for people like you when they realize majority of people did enjoy playing games while laughing in your face.

 

If you don't like Resident evil games then you don't like them.

 @joker1888 'it died' a long time back with the crappy controls and crappier cut scenes (meaning original RE1,2,3 and not the improved GC remakes) r.i.p. r.e.

 @Bl4KD37H Yes, because some people have fun in their own way and they know the flaws of the game and they try to show them in a realistic manner instead of being attention whores hating the game.

 @MrKrupet we need RE2:REmake and they need to fucking port RE:Outbreak and File 2 to PSN with functional servers. THATS what they need to do to revive this dead shit serie to what made it so unique and great.

 @MrKrupet Oh, we have to fill Capcom's Facebook/Twitter with requests for the Remake, I guess....

 @suplax  @muppen  this doesnt make RE6 a good game. This shit doesnt deserve to be called Neither Biohazard or Resident evil

 @DiamondDM13  @MrKrupet They won't do that , they already profited A LOT by dumb people who pre ordered the game. And the game probably had a good amount of sells as well.

   @MrKrupet Yeah right! As if Capcom actually cares about the gamers' requests or feedback about games

Shouldn't you be playing Disney Barbie games or something ? ( See ? got plenty of good ones :) )

 @suplax  @MrKrupet I think Capcom will listen. It's money they are getting for granted, without needing to invest in people to develop story. It's easy money. All they need is to recreate the game, follow mostly the same plot, add new camera, controls and graphics, and it's done...Takes way less time aswell, since they don't need to plan the story and events, just recreate them.
