Resident Evil 6 Update Adds New Difficulty, Co-op Partner

Capcom is prepping a new, free download update for Resident Evil 6 that adds the No Hope difficulty mode and a cooperative partner to Ada Wong's campaign. The update also unlocks Ada's campaign from the start. Previously, players had to complete the campaigns for Chris, Jake, and Leon before unlocking Ada's.

"Said campaign was meant as a solo affair for Ms Wong, but odds are you'd like to play through it again with a pal - soon you can!" Capcom says.

Capcom also clarified the issue with download content being locked on the game disc. "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 unlocks. Simply register for the site and start earning RE points for those goodies," the company said.

"Future paid DLC - like the multiplayer modes we revealed 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."
