Hidden content on Resident Evil 6 disc is not paid DLC

Put down your pitch forks.

Recently, some modders made the discovery that here are a few skins and other assets on the Resident Evil 6 game disc that are not unlockable through regular play. This caused a lot of people to jump to the conclusion that Capcom was up to their old tricks, hiding DLC on the game disc to sell separately later. This, however, is not the case.

Capcom has released a statement saying that some of the things, such as Mercenaries skins, will be unlockable through residentevil.net. The rest will be enabled through a free content update. None of the things that were discovered have anything to do with the already-announced paid DLC that's in the works, and none of it will have to be paid for separately from the main game.

One of the new additions will be a co-op partner for Ada Wong's campaign. It's not really clear how that will work, since Ada's campaign already exists and it's designed for solo play, but it's coming. The update will also unlock Ada's campaign for people who haven't finished the three other story campaigns by that time. The patch has not been dated.
