If you’re looking for reasons to continue your fanboy nerd-rage campaign against Capcom, I’m afraid you’ll have to cross “on-disc DLC” off of your list: while the latest (mediocre) entry in Capcom’s Resident Evil series does feature on-disc DLC, the DLC unlock codes will be given away for free to everyone who owns a copy of the game.
The features unlocked by the “DLC” will be the extra hard “No Hope” difficulty level and the ability to play co-op during the unlockable Ada campaign. Capcom says that both features will be unlocked as part of an upcoming free update to the game.
There will be paid DLC down the road, however, including some content that will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 version of the game (for a time, at least.) However, much to the chagrin of people looking for excuses to be outraged, all of the paid DLC appears to be absent for the disc, and was seemingly made after development on the main title wrapped up.
I’m currently playing through Resident Evil 6 (expect a review soon… maybe,) and the game certainly isn’t lacking in content — the game is very, very long — but unfortunately, I’m not enjoying much of that content. I’ll elaborate later, but a lot of the game just seems very ill thought out and poorly designed, and I’m not enjoying it much. I’m very tempted to just stop playing completely and just play through RE4 again. But alas, I’ve played and beaten every main series RE game so far, so I’ll force myself to slog through the rest of 6.
