Capcom also today solidified release plans for the PC version of Resident Evil 6. The game will launch physically and digitally March 22 in North America and Europe and will include features that were patched in to the console versions.

These include access to Ada Wong's campaign from the outset and the camera-adjustment update. In addition, PC players will be able to tap into to view and track their statistics.

Additionally, Capcom announced today that the notably absent Siege mode for Resident Evil 6 will arrive in March for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will be a $4 download for both platforms. What's more, Capcom said the Survivors, Predator, and Onslaught game add-ons will launch for the PS3 in February priced at $4 each. These were previously available only for the Xbox 360.

Lastly, Capcom said all Resident Evil 6 expansions--Survivors, Predator, Onslaught, and Siege--will be available for PC players to purchase "shortly after" March 22. All future title updates for the console versions of the game will be available free for PC players, the company said.
