Owners of Resident Evil 6 PC will be able to select one of four survivors from Left 4 Dead 2’s iconic cast – Coach, Nick, Ellis and Rochelle – when playing PC exclusive mode, The Mercenaries No Mercy.

In addition to the four survivors, two of the infamous Special Infected zombies from the Left 4 Dead franchise – the Witch and Mini Tank – will also make a cameo appearance in this mode, relentlessly attacking players regardless of whether a character from Left 4 Dead 2 or Resident Evil 6 is chosen. This new and exclusive content will automatically be downloaded in the background to all owners of the PC version of Resident Evil 6 from April 5.All the content featured in the crossover projects will be completely free to anyone who owns either game.

Capcom has also confirmed that PC players will be receiving access to previous features added to consoles post-release including the Ada Wong campaign, in-game camera tuning and access to ResidentEvil.net. A free benchmark test will be made available in February as well for those needing to flex their specs.
Alongside the PC details, console players of Resident Evil 6 will be able to further expand their gameplay experience with the release of a fourth additional mode, Siege. The new mode will be available sometime in March for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Siege sees a lone AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent in trouble and in need of help. Players will split into two teams with one assuming control of enemy creatures who are trying to take down the rookie, while the other team selects playable characters from the main game and must keep him alive.All four post launch game add on modes – Survivors, Predator, Onslaught and Siege – will be made available for PC owners to download and purchase shortly after March 22, with any future title updates for the console version also being made available free of charge for PC owners.
Resident Evil 6 for PC will be available on March 22nd.

Available for two to six players, in Predator one player takes on the role of the Ustanak, the fearsome B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller throughout his campaign, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W. in its tracks, or at least survive until the end of the session.Check out a preview of Predator mode below, and click these links for a closer look at Onslaught, and Survivors.
A general patch for the game is also scheduled to launch on the same day, presumably for all platforms. Here's the brief:
December 18, will also see the release of a free title update for Resident Evil 6 that will allow owners to adjust the in-game camera to give a greater field of view as best suits their play style, while those who want to combine English language audio with subtitles in their desired language will now be able to do so. Also included in the title update is an unlock for Ada Wong’s campaign that adds an optional player-controlled co-op partner for that story, and the aptly named No Hope difficulty level, for those who want an extreme challenge.Dates for PC and PlayStation 3 DLC offerings have not been confirmed, but such exclusivity windows generally tend to be in the vicinity of one month.

official Unity blog (thanks: VG247), explains that the additional content discovered by modders on the game disc, including a new extra challenging difficulty mode, and new character costumes and taunts, are all attributable to planned free updates, and not the nefarious on-disc DLC that they have been criticised for in the past.
...some data of this update is on the disc, but said data is incomplete and requires the actual download to access. But again, free. Mercenaries costumes are residentevil.net unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies.So there you go: unfinished free content, and regular old achievement-based unlocks. Not so treacherous after all.

However, console modders, browsing the DVD file system of the recently released Resident Evil 6 (AusGamers 6.8/10), have reportedly uncovered an extra difficulty level, and additional character costumes and taunts, as well as references to planned map packs, and multiplayer game modes (via: Eurogamer):
YouTube user FluffyQuack released a number of videos showing unreleased DLC for the game, obtained by modding.The videos referred to can currently be found here :No Hope Difficulty, here: Costumes, and here: Taunts.
What do we all think? Legitimate deployment of post-launch content, or a less noble attempt to further monetise content that should have been included in the initial purchase price?

Unfortunately, the small taste I had prior to review, was about the best the game offers overall. It's a massive game packed with features, to be sure, but it fails to not only live up to the legacy left by Resident Evil 4, but to even usher the series into the modern gaming age.
Read our review to find out why.

Resident Evil 6 portrays a world where an escalation in bioterrorist attacks across the globe has led to widespread fear among the population. In an attempt to quell the panic and curb the bioterrorist activity the President of the United States has decided to speak to the nation but not before the very location of the address itself comes under attack. With the President’s safety compromised the situation for the rest of the world seems hopeless.Make sure you check out the trailer below (HD here) for a glimpse into the chaos of a world nearing destruction, and also check out our latest hands-on preview of the horror title.
Resident Evil 6 will be available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd.

"We don’t really see that happening right now," he told us. "Especially if we’re talking about the numbered iterations of the franchise, I think it’s something that Capcom here in Japan can only make."
Elsewhere in the interview we talk about horror in games, the Resident Evil legacy and their design philosophy for Resi 6.

AusGamers was recently invited out to Capcom's Osaka, Japan-based HQ to not only get hands-on with Resident Evil 6, but to also check out two new modes.
We knew about Leon, Chris and Jake's campaigns, but Capcom also revealed that series favourite, Ada Wong, would have her own single-player campaign alongside the aforementioned, and also gave us a look at Agent Hunt Mode, which lets you drop into anyone's game to play as the enemy and muckrake.
We also have new screens for everything they revealed to us, all of which you can check out via the thumbs below.
