Ironically, I find the Mercs to be the saving grace of RE6. I beat all the campaigns just to know the story and to unlock the characters for use in Mercs. But I rarely play campaign unless it's for an event.
Capcom confirms PC version of zombie shooter will receive The Mercenaries: No Mercy game type; Siege mode coming to PS3, Xbox 360 in March.
Capcom today announced that the PC version of Resident Evil 6 will receive an exclusive game mode called The Mercenaries: No Mercy. A spin on the classic Mercenaries mode from previous games, the new version includes "more enemies on screen than ever before."
Capcom also today solidified release plans for the PC version of Resident Evil 6. The game will launch physically and digitally March 22 in North America and Europe and will include features that were patched in to the console versions.
These include access to Ada Wong's campaign from the outset and the camera-adjustment update. In addition, PC players will be able to tap into ResidentEvil.net to view and track their statistics.
Additionally, Capcom announced today that the notably absent Siege mode for Resident Evil 6 will arrive in March for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It will be a $4 download for both platforms. What's more, Capcom said the Survivors, Predator, and Onslaught game add-ons will launch for the PS3 in February priced at $4 each. These were previously available only for the Xbox 360.
Lastly, Capcom said all Resident Evil 6 expansions--Survivors, Predator, Onslaught, and Siege--will be available for PC players to purchase "shortly after" March 22. All future title updates for the console versions of the game will be available free for PC players, the company said.

So, they took the most hated game play in most of gaming that most people complain about (Escort Missions)... and they made it into a lopsided multiplayer experience.
I'm near certain that Capcom wants you to hate them.†
i just pre-purchased it today of steam for £19:99 comes with soundtrack and resident evil 5 for free, †i will always support Capcom
can't complain LOL†
I never like the Mercenaries modes in any of the RE games. I feel obligated to play this game eventually but I won't be paying very much for it. I will catch it for under $10 on Steam.
@jark888†You can also buy a perk that makes the QTE's with monster encounters easier, its a cheap perk and is likely the way to go considering its a big deal for a few gamers. Personally they seemed easy, sure they cause a cheap death from unawareness, but that's no different when being†eaten†by fish monster in Resi 4. Only real difference is these QTE's can become tedious I guess. At anyrate the PC version will likely mod the code and remove this anyway geez. People need to realise it's actually a good game, flaws and all.
@jark888 I'm nearing the 200hours of RE gameplay. I can tell you that yes, they are many, but the worst part is not the amount, but the difficulty of those QTE's. It's insane how much button mashing is needed in No Hope difficulty. I only have 2 PS3 controlers, and I do not intend on buying another...
@DiamondDM13†@jark888†I nearly reach 200 hours gameplay as well. The only hard part I remember in No Hope is when I had to press X repeatedly while killing Simmon on the building. I'll give you an idea. You don't hold the controller traditional way, instead, put it down, hold it with your left hand and quickly press it with index or middle finger of your right hand(if you're right handed).
@jark888†@DiamondDM13 Which means it's too difficult. If it wasn't, you could to Simmons punching holding the controler normally. I didn't have to do that during God Mode Ares, why would I do that in RE...
It's not the case of lack of experience. I've beaten all Very Hard GoW's, I even beat DMC3, the original one (and the SE aswell) with SS rank in all missions and difficulty. I'm used the difficult games. But this game is broken when it comes to QTE's. (Other than that it's not even a problem when it comes to difficulty, expect on the vehicle parts...)
Calling Resident Evil 6 bad is over expressed, and frankly untrue. Many of you probably never played the game. It's hardly the best Resident Evil, point taken. But quicktime & chase scenes†aside, it's a good†game. Believe it or not the game is very big and the flaws do not sum up the majority of the†experience.
I am so†disappointed†in the mutliplayer part of RE. †I have played and played the add on's†Survivors, Predator, Onslaught, and Siege as soon as they came out, but it was just not enough. I mean the single player game you tacked on was really awesome and well made but it was just too long, and just drew me away from RE multiplayer, I mean cmon that is why we pick up a copy of RE6 - to be engulfed in online dlc multiplayer for hours and hours, it is what we have been asking forever. † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † † †I think some realistic decisions should be made to take the time, resources, and money set aside for the storyline/campaign and have it allocated for more multiplayer in RE before anything else, then if there is time or demand release some kind of crappy mission, story,†campaign or what ever to make a few bucks. Remember capcom it is why we started playing this game and genre all those years ago, it is so we can have the worlds best quality †multiplayer with as little storyline/campaign to get in the way.†
I wonder sometimes if capcom and publishers look through some†bizarre-o-world mirror†at forum posts and all they see is what I have written above.†
@jenovaschilld†Your idea of multiplayer before campaign is pretty funny for me, but I like the idea of longer & deeper(experience) multiplayer mode.
Hmm perhaps some new mini games to replace the quick time events and improved shooting mechanics ? One can only hope a modder gets hold of this or maybe an official patch :D
Let's all just ignore this crap and wait for Revelations. I hear it's the ONLY good RE game that came out last year.†
@shalashaska88†That one I do look forward to. I hope they†realize†it was their only good game and put a lot of effort into making it look great and not find a way to capcom it up.
@shalashaska88†It's a 50$ downloadable game. Even if it's a good game, it's still a rip-off price.†
@shalashaska88†Shouldn't believe everything you 'hear'.
lol if that mode was on consoles it would truly be "no mercy" because it would have suffered from choppy frame rate XD per their say "biggest number of enemies on screen".
Here we go with the "exclusive" bullcrap again... Oh wait! Just a Mercenary Add-on? Nevermind then...
They can add whatever they want, but it isn't going to stop them from pirating the hell out of this game.
@Kjranu†You mean like they've properly managed Sonic?
@Plasmid_king†Maybe to those who want to keep hating Sonic no matter what.†
