Resident Evil 6 For PC Gets Release Date
Say what you will about Resident Evil 6, but Capcom is continuing to prove that they haven’t given up on it yet. Not only has a release date for the game’s PC port been confirmed, but Capcom has also revealed a few extra goodies that are in store for fans who spring for the PC version.
First off, players who purchase Resident Evil 6 for the PC when it is released on March 22nd will be able to custom-tailor the game’s graphical settings. Capcom has confirmed that higher-end machines will be able to display more enemies on screen at once than the game’s console equivalents and that a new mode called Mercenaries: No Mercy (which is basically Mercenaries only with *a lot* more enemies than usual) has been added with high-end-specced computers in mind.
In addition, all of the previously released patches and DLC, both free and paid, will be bundled in with the PC version of Resident Evil 6 free of charge. This includes all of the additional DLC competitive multiplayer modes, instant access to Ada Wong’s campaign with the inclusion of co-op compatibility, and full access to ResidentEvil.net.
The PC version of Resident Evil 6 will be available in both North America and Europe as either a digital or retail purchase. It will cost $39.99, a full twenty bucks cheaper than buying a new copy for consoles without any of the extra paid DLC (which, again, is included free on the PC version). Love it or hate it, I doubt any can deny that the PC version of Resident Evil 6 is a pretty good deal for Resident Evil fans who might have hesitated to take the console-version plunge back when the game was first released.
