Three new multiplayer modes are on the way to the Xbox Live Marketplace for Resident Evil 6, with Xbox 360 players enjoying an exclusivity window on the new content, priced at 320 MS Points a piece, or 720 Points for a bundle of all three.
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.
Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.
Onslaught sees two players go head to head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.

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.
