Resident Evil 6 PC Version Coming in January

Capcom’s latest iteration in the Resident Evil series is finally shambling onto PC: You can finally get Resident Evil 6 on PC on Jan. 22, 2013.

The PC edition will include all the update material that’s hit the console versions since Resident Evil 6′s release — specifically, the No Hope difficulty mode, and the ability to play Ada Wong’s campaign from the game’s outset, rather than unlocking it by beating the other three campaigns. Capcom also says that, thanks to Steam, RE6 will include cloud saving, Steam achievements and leaderboards, along with the other stuff you get from Steam.

    Selectable criteria for joining a session:

  • Stage selection
  • Region selection

Stage selection

General
QTE assist: QTE assist is currently part of the Amateur difficulty level, and automatically completes QTEs for the player. With this update, players can optionally activate QTE assist on any difficulty level.
