Resident Evil 6 Free DLC To Add Co-Op For Ada Wong’s Campaign

By Ishaan . October 11, 2012 . 1:30pm

Once you’ve completed the campaigns of Chris, Leon and Jake in Resident Evil 6, you’re given access to a fourth playable campaign—that of Ada Wong’s, which helps tie some of the game’s plot threads together.


Unlike the other three, Ada’s campaign can only be played solo, and has no option for co-op play with a partner. This is about to change soon—Capcom have announced that they will be releasing a free update that lets you play Ada’s campaign with a friend. The update will also make her campaign available from the very beginning of the game, so you won’t need to unlock it in order to play it.


Additionally, another incoming free update will add a No Hope difficulty mode. We’ll have more news on this as Capcom make it available.


Food for thought:

Capcom have also clarified that any “on-disc DLC” in Resident Evil 6 is meant to be free future DLC. No paid downloadable content is on the game disc.

    Never read “Free” and “Capcom” in the same sentence before.

    • AuraGuyChris

      “Mega Man” and “Capcom” meanwhile sound silly nowadays.

      • I can’t help but hang my head when I hear it, like I’m at a funeral.

      • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

        You forget about Capcom and Phoenix Wright too.

        • AuraGuyChris

          Not really. They’re doing it right with PW again with the next game on the series.

          • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

            Lol, i thought you are speaking about games that don’t have any DLC problem.T_T My miss here.

  • Make it Sheva.  FEMALE RUSH HOOOURRR

  • Godman

    Glad they are taking care of RE6

  • Eddie

    I hope they release extra characters and stages for mercenaries. That would be awesome, maybe extra scenarios akin to Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape? Here’s to wishful thinking.

    • eilegz

       well lost in nightmare and desesperate escape are proper dlc and they can and will charge for those

      • Eddie

        Yeah, I wouldn’t have a problem paying for that type of dlc, if they chose to do something along those lines.

        • eilegz

          yeah proper dlc its a good practice and deserve my money

  • Shinji Kazuya

    That’s great news! Been playing the game since monday and it’s great.

    I have to wonder though: they will need to add another character to Ada’s Campaign won’t they?

    Could it be a new one or an old one?

  • キロ

    Sherry, Chris, and Leon were in this game, so I was very sad when I did not see Claire ;_; maybe DLC like this? ^^/

    But at least she was mentioned once, unlike poor Jill XD…and even Sheva, two people important to Chris!

    …and Barry! Where’s Barry?

    “Capcom have also clarified that any “on-disc DLC” in Resident Evil 6 is meant to be free future DLC. No paid downloadable content is on the game disc.”

    Can all the whiners please shut up about RE6 on-disc locked content now?  I’m FAR happier not having to actually download this stuff and take up my hard drive space.  Heck, I’m actually fine with PAID content locked on the disc for the same reason, but I know a lot of people disagree.  

    Note that my comment is in no way a judgment on the quality of RE6, I haven’t even played the game yet.  But it really annoys me that people would rather have game content (locked or unlocked) that you have to download from some server as opposed to having it right there on a physical disc.  And funny enough, usually the people who complain about on-disc locked content are the same people who make a big commotion about preferring physical discs to digital versions of games (not very consistent at all, eh?)

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

      People loves beating dead horses on DLC there. Even if Capcom does right, they will still complain. Thats why they are whiners lol.T_T

  • This is wonderful news! So happy to hear this. I’ve been loving RE6 ever since I popped it into my PS3 =^_^=

  • DLC done right, I’m proud Capcom, I’m proud.

    I’ll still wait for a price drop on this one because I really didn’t like the demo, but it’s nice to know Ada’s campaign will finally be playable from the start, because from what I was able to see, I believe her campaign is actually the most classic out of the bunch, with some puzzles thrown in to the mix (I believe).

    I miss classic Resi.

  • Rhiwion

    See? All of you shat your pants out of rage over nothing. :D

    I just love the community sometimes. :>

  • Cephrien

    Gee. Look at that. People raising a big ass stink over nothing.

    I knew Capcom was getting their shiit together after Dragon’s Dogma came out.

  • MrTyrant

    Is this really Capcom? or am I dreaming?

  • I just hope that the Hunk ish costume i saw by accident on youtube, is in fact Hunk and not a Chris costume T.T

  • Repede91

    Everyone is congratulating Capcom on this. It is nice to have additional content added.

    But the reaction to the SFxT DLC has led me to think that in the future the extra content will be finished before a game releases. The difference now is that that content will be withheld from being placed on the disc and released later. There is no benefit to consumers in this method. When the content is on disc you don`t have to download large files.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Congratz to Capcom for doing things right there.^_^ Hope that they will be able to resolve some of the problem with their fans there.

  • eilegz

    its good to see capcom change stance and revert the massive outrage after sf x t hope they keep on 

  • I’d like to see the face of those whiners if they saw this lol.

  • Linhua

    … i’m just not understanding this… I’ve been through Ada’s campaign and I just see NO room for co-op anywhere in there.

    … the way she went about things seemed very solo and the situations were tight enough for only one person to deal with.

    … this leads me to believe that she will have two separate roles to play…

    … one where she does things on her own and then another where she does other things with a partner that take place either BEFORE or AFTER the story of RE6.

    … but then that brings me to who she could possibly partner up with…


    … it could be anybody considering she joins forces with other characters throughout their campaign… but those don’t last any longer than a scene or two… and then she’s off on her own again with that damn batman toy of her’s. Seriously… if they plan on keeping the same campaign and just adding someone to sidekick with her… who the hell is gonna be tryina keep up with her and her toys…??

    … = =;; … I know she isn’t gonna be carrying that extra luggage every time she uses the damn thing.

    … @[email protected] … none of this is making any sense! 

    .-. This scrit needs to come out NAO.

    • Pedro Magalhaes

      Prepare to be disappointed as Capcom unleashes the incredible Ada Wong with her new partner also Ada Wong with 4 different colors of your choosing! 

      • Linhua

        .-. N-No way… from where did you get this info…???

  • Göran Isacson

    Ada Wong and her BLUE-clad previously unheard of twin sister, Ama Wong, now together for the first time!

    ha ha yeah probably not, but still- I’d laugh if that turns out to be the case.

  • It’s probably just 2 seperate agents working in the same area lol. It might be that guy in the helicopter that shot carla:o

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Capcom? free DLC? IMPOSIRIBUUU!

    is the end of the world near!?
    ok, seriously now, glglad to see capcom learning from their strategies mistakes and fixing them.

  • Neosapien

    I think that’s sweet, cant wait to get the game!!

  • Alright, so I read some of the comments below, and most people are wondering as to who Ada’s unnamed partner may be? Well I know. I’ve seen screen shots and read quotes from the creators. If you want to know keep reading, if not then don’t. So again, her unnamed partner who is the only person in the world that can keep up with her or even possibly go ahead of her and be better is, HUNK. Yes HUNK. [Resident Evil 2 + 4]
