Resident Evil 6 Has On-Disc DLC

After being critically hammered, the last thing Capcom wants to do is make Resident Evil 6 less enticing. But in comes word that Resident Evil 6 has on-disc DLC, a practice that has proved very controversial this year after Street Fighter X Tekken was revealed to have over 12 characters locked behind a pay-gate. YouTube user FluffyQuack was modding his disc when he uncovered several bits of content already on the disc. The only full piece of content on the disc is a new difficulty mode called No Hope, which is harder than Professional. The rest is partially on the disc. These include 2 map packs, 4 new multiplayer modes, and an a Co-op mode for Ada’s campaign. The Multiplayer modes are called Onslaught, Survivors, Predator, and Siege. You can read up on what each mode is on Fluffly’s video description.

Fluffy points out that some of the info other sites are reporting are wrong, like costumes and taunts. He sates that some of these, while on the disc, don’t seem to be locked behind a pay-gate but through normal gameplay (A and S Ranking Mercenary maps with each character) and unlocked via RE.net. The only items players may have to pay for is what’s mentioned in the previous paragraph. Capcom reached out to Eurogamer to clarify that some of the data is on the disc to ensure compatibility and that “there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc.” If that’s the case, then maybe they should’ve stuck to that original release date in November to, y’know, finish it. You can see all of Quacky’s Mod videos after the break.

Street Fighter X Tekken On-Disc DLC Debacle

Ah this again. For once, just once, I want to say something good about Capcom after the Summer incident. But nope, we’ve got to talk about this, On-Disc DLC. It was one of the first articles I’ve ever posted for TWF when the blog was still on LiveJournal. It’s a hotly debated topic with one side calling foul over the practice, and the other coming up with a multitude of reasons for why it needs to be. On-Disc DLC popped up from time to time, with Bioshock 2‘s Sinclair Solutions DLC and the extra multiplayer modes that were present in Capcom’s own Resident Evil 5. Both moments put both companies in a negative light, and since then the practice was curb for most major DLC (from my understanding). But now it’s happened again, and boy it’s a doozy.
