Resident Evil 6 patch to add wider FOV option

Thursday, 25th October 2012 02:01 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Resident Evil 6′s next title update – which includes the free, on-disc DLC unlocks – will also introduce a new camera option.

In addition to previously detailed unlocks of a new difficulty setting and free access to the Ada Wong co-op campaign, Capcom Unity reports fan feedback inspired two more last minute inclusions.

The first is a new camera option. Rather than the shoulder-hugging point of view the game shipped with, the claustrophobic will be able to take in a wider field of view; it seems a bit counter-atmospheric but on the other hand may increase playability. Capcom produced a couple of screenshots demonstrating the difference, but noted that the feature is still being refined, so this isn’t necessarily indicative of the final look.

The second new option will allow you to mix-and-match languages a little more freely; you can listen to the English audio while reading subtitles in another language. Good news if you’re a non-native English speaker but consider the English dub the “real” version; that such people exist makes me wonder how bad the other language options’ voice acting is.

The patch is due in mid-December.

    I neeed that, I needed that badly. I hope it’s true and official, this is the first place I read that about. Thanks a lot for this, made my day. I love you guys, I love you all and I want to cuddle with you all day and listen to your problems and plans for life.

    Dear Brenna, trust me that at least the SPANISH audio is painful to listen to… and the voice sync is even worst. “Original” voices and the “true” actors working with the “true” director makes a huge artistic and interpretative difference even when it’s only about cheesy lines and super American jokes.

    Is it really? I’d always believed nothing could be worse than the English voice acting, honestly. Maybe it’s just that everything sounds better in another language. Anyway, it’s definitely true; click through to Capcom Unity, it’s near the bottom of the post.

    Hey, don’t blame the voice-actors. They make the best out of that shitty script.

    Well, I’m with YoungZer0 here, same actors perform beautifully in other games. One of my favorites, Troy Baker, of course. What an amazing man.
