Sheva!Ahem!?!? Capcom has announced plans of releasing two new downloadable episodes, a host of new costumes, and a new “THE MERCENARIES REUNION” mode, featuring 8 new playable characters and weapon load outs, for Resident Evil 5 on Xbox LIVE and PSN in February.
For those of you who have a fetish for Boxes, stop complaining because a RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION that will include the original game plus all additional content, will also be released a month after the DLC hits Xbox Live and PSN. RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION will be available for $49.99 as a single Blu-ray disc for the PLAYSTATION 3 or as a DVD with a token for the downloadable content for XBOX 360.
The first new episode titled “LOST IN NIGHTMARES”, finds BSAA agent, Chris Redfield, working with his partner, Jill Valentine, as they investigate Ozwell E. Spencerâ€™s hideaway. Spencer, the evil mastermind and co-founder of Umbrella Corporation, has been hiding a new evil deep within the basement of his mansion. Chris and Jill discover this grotesque evil standing in their way as the two enter deeper into the catacombs beneath the mansion.
“THE MERCENARIES REUNION”, gives players 8 new playable characters and weapon load outs which provide players additional challenges as they aim to shoot down as many enemies as they can within a limited time. Each piece of downloadable content will contain two new playable characters. The GOLD EDITION will feature all eight.
Information on the second episode will be coming out soon according to Capcom.
