Capcom today announced the three new Resident Evil 6 modes slated for release, all due for Xbox 360 before PC and PS3. Those modes have been named Onslaught, Predator, and Survivors.
As you can guess, these modes are geared more toward co-op and multiplayer rather than solo players out there. Separately, the modes will go for 320 Microsoft Points ($4) each, but the three-in-one bundle is a much more worthwhile investment, at 720 MP (or $9). Then again, if you're just not that interested in having all three, better to just go with the former buying option.
Anyway, here's a little bit about each mode, complete with actual trailers to give us an idea of what players are getting into. Screenshots can be found after the break.
Available for two to six players, in Predator one player takes on the role of the Ustanak, the fearsome B.O.W. that stalks Jake Muller throughout his campaign, and tries to eliminate the human players. The humans’ task: stop the deadly B.O.W. in its tracks, or at least survive until the end of the session.

Survivors takes the classic solo and team-based versus mode and adds a twist. Get killed and respawn as an enemy character with the ability to attack the human characters. Take down one human character to resurrect in human form. Last man or team standing wins. Survivors can be played by two to six players.

Onslaught sees two players go head-to-head in an attempt to clear waves of oncoming enemies. Chaining combos provides the key to success in Onslaught as this will send enemies over to the opponent’s screen, the more that are sent over, the quicker the victory will be.

The release date 360 gamers should be looking at is December 18, which is about a couple weeks from now.
