Resident Evil 6 pre-order bonuses are Mercenaries Maps

Yes, Mercenaries Mode is back

Put your money down early for Resident Evil 6 and you'll be rewarded with two maps for the game's Mercenaries mode, Capcom's confirmed.


In Mercenaries Mode players battle through waves of enemies while the clock counts down. The objective of the mode is to rack up the most points possible by chaining together multiple kills and seeking out hidden items in the environment.

In the US Gamestop, Amazon, and Best Buy each have an exclusive Merc map to offer pre-order customers.

Here's all the details:

  • The Catacombs - Available exclusively at Gamestop with pre-order of Resident Evil 6: There are more than just enemies lurking in these catacombs. Be weary of booby traps ready to ensnare you around every corner! Are your reflexes quick enough to avoid them?
  • High Seas Fortress - Available exclusively at with pre-order of Resident Evil 6: An expansive stage that takes you from the deck of an aircraft carrier to the hangars inside. Engage in intense shoot-outs on the deck, but hone your martial arts skills inside the narrow confines of the hangers.
  • Rail Yard - Available exclusively at Best Buy with pre-order of Resident Evil 6: A multi-level stage in the steel and concrete confines of a railroad yard. Enemies are lurking everywhere, from inside the trains to the roof of the yard. You'll have to stay on the move to stay alive!

There's no word on if and where European Resi fans will be able to get these yet.
