Capcom nails down release date for PC version of action-shooter; free update for console versions out today brings No Hope difficulty, more.

The PC version of Resident Evil 6 will arrive March 22, 2013, Capcomannounced today. The game will launch with "all console content," as well as future content delivered through free title updates. In September, Capcom said Resident Evil 6 for PC would not ship for "some time" and promised it would not make the same mistakes as Resident Evil 4.


Resident Evil 6 for PC will be available as a download on March 22, with no mention made of a release at traditional retail outlets. The Steam version of the game will support cloud saving, Steam Achievements, leaderboards, and game overlay.

Capcom also announced today that Resident Evil 6 will be available via Xbox 360 Games on Demand sometime later this year. No price for this version of the game was announced.

In addition, the previously announced Resident Evil 6 title update for consoles is out today. This update unlocks Ada Wong's campaign from the beginning and adds a co-op partner for her campaign. Additionally, the update brings new camera-adjustment options and a No Hope difficulty.

Capcom also said a new title update for Resident Evil 6 will be available January 22. It will make the Agent Hunt mode available from the start, allows for stage selection within chapters, and brings a new quick time event assist. For the full update notes, check out Capcom's website.

Lastly, three new multiplayer modes (Predator, Onslaught, and Survivor) will be available for the Xbox 360 version of Resident Evil 6 tomorrow for $4 each or bundled together for $9. It is not clear when these modes will arrive for the PS3 or PC versions of the game.

Check out my hype threads: Cyberpunk, and The Witcher 3!

CAPCOM finally got rid of Games for Windows – Live (full Steam support at last!). I'm paying full price because of this.

Shit... March is going to be expensive...
