On-disc DLC for RE6 because of “technical reasons”

Oh boy, remember how Capcom included on-disc “DLC” in Resident Evil 5 and people weren’t so happy? And then remember when they included on-disc “DLC” and hidden PS3 exclusive characters in the Xbox 360 version of Street Fighter x Tekken? Yeah, people weren’t too happy about that either? And THEN remember how on-disc “DLC” appeared in Dragon’s Dogma? Capcom, it seems, is one of those companies that refuses to learn from customer feedback.

There’s on-disc “DLC” in Resident Evil 6. It was apparently discovered by a YouTube user called “FluffyQuack” who managed to dig up the locked-off content via a mod for the game. There are loads of videos on his YouTube channel but apparently there are a few spoilers as well, so tread carefully if you don’t want this pinnacle of the survival horror genre ruined for you.

Capcom, sensing the inevitable player/fan/world backlash that their on-disc “DLC” is about to cause, has released a statement to Eurogamer.

Capcom has admitted that there is indeed a piece of content on the game disc that will require downloaded data before it will work. The Capcom spokesperson, however, refused to identify what that content is, but it could be a new difficulty level dubbed “No Hope”.

“We still have unannounced DLC for RE6 that will be revealed in the coming months,” the representative told Eurogamer, “and while virtually all such content will not be on the disc there will be one piece of content, that for technical reasons, requires the use of a combination of newly downloaded data and data that is included on the retail game disc.”

    What bothers that people actually go through the trouble(Which can’t be easy) to dig stuff up and then they are unhappy about it? It doesn’t make sense, why don’t they just NOT go look for hidden stuff on the disc if people are going to be unhappy about it?

  • Wallie

    Yes!! Just play the damn game as it is, It’s a great release and you really have to be bored to go digging into the disc’s contents. Wait like everybody else to see what Capcom have in store for us in the upcoming DLC. I for one can’t wait!!

    You know, some music artists leave free stuff on their disc and no-one digs as much to find out, nor do they have an internet-wide outcry when the stuff is there but they aren’t allowed access for whatever reason, logical or otherwise.

    Most of the “DLC” the guy found, is actually content that is unlocked via the RE.NET website, by gaining medals/ranks. He’s actually been mocked quite badly for his “scoop”.
