Free is always good, especially when it makes a particular game a little better.

Capcom has announced a new free update for Resident Evil 6 , which should be coming in December. This update fixes a few small issues and tosses in several new features that should make the overall experience a bit more robust.

You will be given the option to adjust the camera so your field of view is bigger; there will be a minimum and maximum range, and the maximum range should be of great help in certain situations. Ada Wong's campaign will be unlocked at the start and there will be the option of having a player-controlled co-op partner, too. As of now, you have to complete the campaigns for all three characters if you want to unlock Ada's story arc. Lastly, the No Hope difficulty level will be added; you've probably heard of this before. If you desire a wicked test, this is definitely for you.

Contrary to some popular opinion, we didn't think the game was too bad in the first place. It just has a bit of an identity crisis, that's all. Beyond that, it's pretty damn fun.

Wasn't No Hope difficulty one of the recent findings on the game disk already? So basically there giving gamers an update that should've been free right from the getgo?

Again with the unfinished situations. If this generation keeps up, we'll be buying betas instead of finished games.

At least the patch will be out before Christmas, so good news for the folks receiving this game as a Chrissy present.

"Ada Wong's campaign will be unlocked at the start"

This obviously catering to mainstream/casual gamer needs. And who complained that they had to beat 3 campaigns to unlock it.

The producers of the game did say that they worried that many would not beat RE6 in its entirety. So this "fixes" that up for those not willing to make the effort.

"Contrary to some popular opinion, we didn't think the game was too bad in the first place. It just has a bit of an identity crisis, that's all. Beyond that, it's pretty damn fun."

The QTE's still suck monkey balls, though. But I guess some get used to them. You have to, since we did spent $60 dlls on it after all.

Playing it like old RE games, this one fails. Since the pacing in campaign mode is still bad. No scares and its waaay too scripted. What saves the game is Mercenaries AND CO-OP.

Ada's campaign doesn't really need co-op.
