Big Resident Evil 6 Update Incoming
Capcom has announced a big update to Resident Evil 6 in response to some negative player feedback the publisher has been receiving about the game. The update will be released in mid-December to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game and will be free to everyone. Capcom hasn’t confirmed or denied whether the update will be included in the PC version of Resident Evil 6 when it is released or not.
The update will include the following changes:
• Subtitle options will be improved so that English audio can be combined with subtitles in alternative languages.
• Ada Wong’s campaign will be made available from the start, rather than forcing players to complete all three other campaigns first. The update will also add an optional, player-controlled co-op partner.
• The “No Hope” difficulty level will be added to supplement the existing levels for players looking for an extreme challenge.
• Players will be able to adjust the camera to allow for a greater field of view. In the below screenshots you can see the new minimum and maximum camera range. Capcom warns that this feature is still in development and may change without further notice before the update is released.

It has been no secret that ever since its release earlier this month, Resident Evil 6 has been received with mixed opinions. Some felt the game made for a good action title while others felt it strayed too far away from its survival horror roots. Various other aspects such as the pacing, inventory system and game mechanics have also been scrutinized and it seems Capcom has been listening. Although it doesn’t change everything gamers took issue with, do you think these upcoming changes will appease those who didn’t like the game? Comment below and let us know.
