Capcom Tries To Explain DLC Apparently Locked On RE6 Disc
This probably isn't what Capcom needed right now.
It started with a modder claiming to have unlocked various downloadable content files hidden on the Resident Evil 6 disc. That YouTube video has certainly made the rounds, especially after Capcom came under fire earlier this year for locking new fighters onto the Street Fighter X Tekken disc. Remember that? The publisher responded to that backlash by saying there's really no difference between content locked on the disc and DLC.
And as the modder seems to have uncovered a new difficulty option (No Hope), new multiplayer maps, and Ada co-op play, fans are once again calling out Capcom. Well, here's the response the company gave CVG:
"We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months and while virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc."
All this after Capcom said they'd "reevaluate" how they think about DLC. Well, I'm not getting in the middle of this minefield.
