Capcom is set to release mid-December a free patch for its action-horror title Resident Evil 6 with the time-conscious gamer in mind.

Those who have already unlocked Ada Wong by finishing the other three campaigns may be disappointed with this news: the upcoming patch coming in December will grant Ada Wong unlocked right away. So, players won't have to push through all of Chris', Leon's, and Alex' campaign in order to play as Ada. Still, for those of us who hunt trophies, doing all that was part of the plan anyway.

Alongside that big addition, Capcom is set to implement some camera tweaks and add the "No Hope" difficulty that we reported on earlier this month. Here are the full details:


-Gamers will be able to adjust the camera to give a greater field of view as best suits their play style. Screenshots illustrating the new camera and co-op features can be found on Capcom's press site. The camera screenshot pairs show the minimum and maximum range of the new camera setting. Please note that this feature is still in development and may change without further notice before the title update is released.

-Subtitle options have been improved so that English language audio can be combined with subtitles in an alternative language.

-As recently announced, Ada Wong's campaign will be unlocked from the start and have an optional player-controlled co-op partner added. It was previously necessary to complete all three other campaigns in order to unlock Ada's story.

-"No Hope" difficulty level will be added above the existing levels, for players who want an extreme challenge

For those of you who have worked through all of the prerequisites, how have you reacted to this update? And for those who have yet to play it, are you more inclined to wait for the patch before starting?
