For Resident Evil 6
, Capcom is bringing back the popular "Mercenaries Mode." If you pre-order through select retailers, you'll get a bonus map for use with this action-oriented game type.
In Mercenaries Mode, players must battle their way through a map before the time limit. The objective isn't simply to finish in time, though. You're also trying to rack up the highest score possible by chaining kills. Scores will no doubt be tracked by online leaderboards.
Best Buy, GameStop, and Amazon are each offering their own bonus map to pre-order customers. Screenshots are below the article. Here's a brief description of each map:
- The Catacombs (GameStop) - "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 (Amazon.com) - "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 (Best Buy) - "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!"
According to the latest trailer
is now due in October.
