The dead have arrived on current gen
Capcom has just released the remastered version of Resident Evil 5 on PS4 and Xbox One. The original game was first released back in 2009, and this remaster has all the previous DLCs included with an additional new difficulty level. The remastered version runs at 1080p resolution and achieves 60fps on both PS4 and Xbox One.
In the original had some content that was exclusive to the PC such as the mode “No Mercy”, which is now available on a console for the first time which basically means even larger numbers of zombies. There are two additional adventures that will give you a background on Resident Evil 5’s story and it will feature Jill Valentine in both adventures. Capcom also revealed a new mode called Mercenaries United. In the Mercenaries United mode players are able to play as all of the characters, use alternate outfits, and all the weapon load-outs become immediately available in this mode.
The two adventures that you will play through are Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape, in the Lost in Nightmares story Jill and Chris Redfield are in the Spencer Estate and this play-through is basically an introductory section to the events in the games African nation Kijuju. In Desperate Escape, is basically when Jill and Josh Stone who is a BSSA operative join forces and together need to get to safety as quickly as possible.
The physical copy on PS4 and Xbox One of the remastered Resident Evil 5, will only be released from 12 July 2016.
Capcom will release more Resident Evil Titles
In February Capcom revealed that they will be releasing the remastered versions of two more and now that the 5th is out the 4th will be released later this year. On 24 January 2017 the developer and publisher will release Resident Evil 7, and besides the normal gameplay, the game will allow players to complete the game in PlayStation VR, which in my opinion could be pretty awesome.
Note PlayStation Plus Subscribers, there is a free Resident Evil 7 demo you can download now on the store. It does not have all the features obviously but it gives you a good idea of what you can expect when the game releases next year.
