Resident Evil 6 improvements could make a difference
Some negative comments from gamers on the new Resident Evil 6 title has prompted Capcom to take this on board, and as part of their acknowledgement of user feedback it seems they will continue to make improvements. It’s nice to see that Capcom value the gamer response, and although this may not be the horror styled RE title that many fans were expecting, they are eager to make this a more enjoyable game.
It is no secret that some improvements could make all the difference, and although the last two titles gave fans the impression Resident Evil was leaning more towards the action epic side of gaming, many fans were surprised that there was not enough emphasis on the survival horror that started the series off. In an article on The Independent website, they highlight Capcom’s response to the negative fan feedback and write about a free update being on the cards. They plan to announce an update that will hopefully address many issues fans have with the game and this will be available for both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions sometime during the month of December.
This was officially stated by Capcom themselves in response to player feedback and some of the concerns they are focusing on include improvements to the camera giving a greater field of view, which they are still working on now. They have also paid attention to the subtitle options, so that English language audio can be used with subtitles in an alternative language, and it seems Ada Wong’s campaign will not only be unlocked from the start, but an optional player-controlled co-op partner will also be accessible.
In relation to the negative Resident Evil 6 reviews, last month we wrote a post on this becoming a trend, and we understand hardcore fans miss the horror element, but this game also caters for newcomers, so with this in mind it is hard to take the reviews too seriously when game has shifted almost 5 million copies. We expect Resident Evil 6 Metacritic scores to be lower than the average reviews, but we don’t believe that the game really is as bad as some are saying.
At the beginning of the month, we wrote about the first Resident Evil 6 DLC videos being released, and this is thanks to modders. At that time there were many questions regarding whether Capcom will or will not release on-disc DLC, and this video showed what is available on the disc in both Pro and DLC difficulty. Those not happy with the idea of on-disc downloadable content will be pleased to know that Capcom intend to give gamers the opportunity to play Ada Wong’s campaign without having to unlock it, and we hope that more improvements will be apparent in the next update to appease fans of the series.
