Purchasing the game via Steam will grant users access to Cloud saving, Steam Achievements, friend support, game overlay, and leaderboards. However, a physical copy of the game can also be obtained at retail.

The news of the game’s PC availability has arrived alongside the information that it will also include all the DLCs for the game that is currently available. Capcom has also revealed a new set of updates that make “small tweaks to the game and comes just one day before three new multiplayer modes arrive as DLC.”

The current list of updates includes:

  • Unlocking Ada's campaign from the start (gamers need not finish the others for access)
  • Optional co-op partner for Ada's campaign (human controlled) unlocked
  • More camera functionality included – zoom in and out per the player’s wish
  • “No Hope” difficulty mode unlocked

Moreover, there will also be a second title update on Jan. 22, adding the following adjustments:

  • Agent Hunt mode unlocked from the beginning
  • Agent Hunt selectable criteria before starting match (stage, region, settings like infinite ammo or friendly fire)
  • Stage selection within chapters
  • QTE assist – The option to automatically complete most QTE events

“We can also announce the PC release date for RE6, which will hit North America as a download on March 22, 2013 (there will be a physical release as well in Europe). It will land with all console content as well as any future content that arrive as free title updates (such as the No Hope mode),” the page adds.
