Capcom details Resident Evil 6 pre-order Mercenaries Maps
Mercenaries Mode is making a return in Resident Evil 6, Capcom announced today.
In Mercenaries Mode, the objective is to rack up as many points as possible in a timed trial that pits you against waves of enemies. By chaining together multiple kills and seeking out hidden items in the map, you can gain additional points.
Playing off of the previous announcement that those who pre-order Resident Evil 6 from either GameStop, Amazon, or Best Buy would get an "exclusive map", Capcom confirmed the Mercenaries Mode will work "hand-in-hand" with these bonus maps.
You can get a first-look at the three new maps available as a pre-order bonus: The Catacombs, High Seas Fortress, and Rail Yard (via):
The Catacombs: Available exclusively at GameStop with pre-order of Resident Evil 6.
"There are more than just enemies lurking in these catacombs. Be weary of booby traps ready to ensnare you around every corner! Are your reflexes quick enough to avoid them?"
High Seas Fortress: Available exclusively at Amazon.com with pre-order of Resident Evil 6.
"An expansive stage that takes you from the deck of an aircraft carrier to the hangars inside. Engage in intense shoot-outs on the deck, but hone your martial arts skills inside the narrow confines of the hangers."
Rail Yard: Available exclusively at Best Buy with pre-order of Resident Evil 6.
"A multi-level stage in the steel and concrete confines of a railroad yard. Enemies are lurking everywhere, from inside the trains to the roof of the yard. You'll have to stay on the move to stay alive!"
Resident Evil 6 will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 2nd, 2012.
