From the ashes of old conflicts, a new terror arises. The Umbrella Corporation and its crop of lethal viruses have been destroyed and contained. But a new, more dangerous threat has emerged. Years after surviving the events in Raccoon City, Chris Redfield has been fighting the scourge of bio-organic weapons all over the world. Now a member of the Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSSA), Chris is sent to Africa to investigate a biological agent that is transforming the populace into aggressive and disturbing creatures.

Joined by another local BSSA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two must work together to solve the truth behind the disturbing turn of events. Featuring a revolutionary new co-op mode of gameplay, Resident Evil 5 will let players experience fear together as terror moves out of the shadows and into the light of day.

Chris Redfield, protagonist of the original Resident Evil and Resident Evil: Code Veronica, returns and is joined by new playable character Sheva Alomar, an African BSAA agent tasked with investigating the epidemic. New cooperatively-focused gameplay revolutionizes the way that Resident Evil is played, allowing players to experience the next generation of fear together. Resident Evil 5 supports any form of co-op gameplay, including Online, Split-screen, and System Link modes.

Features Resident Evil 5

  • Groundbreaking Graphics: Features groundbreaking graphics that utilize an advanced version of Capcom's proprietary game engine, MT Framework, which powered the hit titles Devil May Cry 4, Lost Planet and Dead Rising.

  • New "Quick-Select" Inventory System Designed for Co-op Play: Improved inventory system allows items to be traded between characters. To add to the intensity, all inventory management is done in real time; items can even be assigned to the directional pad for instant access.

  • New Control Schemes: Features new modernized third-person action game control variations as well as the return of the traditional Resident Evil 4 control schemes.

  • New Enemies Bring New Challenges: Enemies boast increased speed and intelligence, making them as dangerous alone as they are in groups.

  • Powerful New Weapons: The number of weapon variations has been greatly increased providing new ways to keep enemies at bay.

  • Fear Light as much as Shadow: Lighting effects provide a new level of suspense as players attempt to survive in both harsh sunlight and extreme darkness.

This game is a port of the Games for Windows - Live version that was released in 2009. If you buy the Untold Stories Bundle it will be the same as upgrading to Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.

As of January 1 2024, Steam will officially stop supporting the Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems. After that date, the Steam Client will no longer run on those versions of Windows. Source: Steam

Critics Read more: Opencritic.com

"Despite a straight port, Resident Evil 5 has aged well. There is a good amount of content here which should make the wait easier for Resident Evil 7."

"Coming right off the back of Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil 5 is an experience that really should not be missed."
