Capcom have today announced that players of Resident Evil 6 (Xbox 360)
will soon be able to expand the number of ways they can deal with the Bio-Organic Weapon threat with a fourth additional game mode. This new mode, named “Siege”, sees two teams of players fighting over an AI-controlled rookie BSAA agent.
One team will assume control of enemy creatures whose aim is to take down the rookie by any means necessary , while the other team selects playable characters from the main campaigns and must do all they can to keep him alive.
Each game will consist of two rounds with teams switching between both the human and enemy roles. The human team wins a round if they successfully protect the rookie agent, while the enemies will win if they can send him to meet his maker.
The following gameplay video and selection of screenshots will help to clear things up:
“Siege" mode will be available sometime in March and will be priced at 320 MSP.
