‘Resident Evil 5’ Xbox One & PS4 Hits Stores This Month
If you’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival date for one of the definitive horror games of its generation to arrive on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Capcom has revealed Resident Evil 5 (2009) will be available digitally on June 28th for $19.99.
Rather wait for the physical disc? Capcom will release editions in North America for both Xbox One and PS4 consoles a couple weeks later on July 12th.
Capcom made the announcement official via a blog post, although other publications noted a listing for the re-issued title on the company’s website earlier.
Resident Evil 5 will be formatted in 1080p resolution with an increased frame rate (60fps ?), single-player and co-op modes, and the new mode “The Mercenaries United” that combines The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion modes.
Microsoft is already taking pre-orders for the digital edition on their website. The digital purchase includes the previously released DLC (Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape story expansions, Versus mode, extra figures and 4 costumes), and the previously PC-exclusive No Mercy mode.
Capcom re-released Resident Evil 6 for Xbox One and PS4 on March 29. Resident Evil 4 is expected sometime in the fall.
