Capcom has side-stepped any further furore about the discovery of DLC on the game disc for Resident Evil 6.
A title update due out soon” will unlock the No Hope difficulty level, reference to which was discovered on the physical copy of the game earlier this week. It will also open Ada's campaign, removing the requirement to complete all other chapters before it can be accessed.
Clarification: some data of this update is on the disc, but said data is incomplete and requires the actual download to access. But again, free,” Capcom has insisted. Mercenaries costumes are residentevil.net unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies.
Future paid DLC – like the multiplayer modes werevealed a while ago– is not on the disc. We said as much a month ago, but that point may have been lost in the shuffle. RE6 on-disc DLC is free, paid DLC is not on the disc.”
Capcom told MCV earlier this week that: While virtually all such content will not be on the disc 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.”
