Experience the thrill and terror all over again with Resident Evil 5, now for PC. Featuring Chris Redfield of the original Resident Evil and new partner Sheva Alomar, a West African agent of the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA), this sci-fi survival game is staged in a remote desert colony packed with hordes of fast-moving, quick-thinking enemies that represent a whole new breed of evil. It features an exciting two-player co-op mode, new costumes, an improved Mercenaries Mode with multiple times as many enemies than the console version of the game, and another first, stereoscopic 3D out of screen effects.
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 (B.S.A.A.), 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.
Exciting Two-Player Co-op Mode
The new cooperative gameplay element focuses on the realities of a dual-agent mission, highlighting the ways in which Redfield and Alomar must work together to survive the unexpected, while still allowing them to split up and work alone. To help you maximize the potential of this setup, two-player online and off-line co-op modes ensure that you have options when aligning yourself with a partner.
Stereoscopic 3D with the PC Version
PC gamers will get the ultimate Resident Evil package in the new PC version as new features will include NVIDIA's new GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless 3D Vision glasses sold separately). Fans that pick up the PC version of Resident Evil 5 will be the first to experience stereoscopic 3D out of screen effects as their living rooms are transformed into the world of Kijuju. Infected Majini coming at players from every angle, dust flying in and out of screen and the scariest bosses to date are taken up a notch. Resident Evil 5 for PC represents a whole new level of fear that players will never forget. Stereoscopic 3D is also supported in all of the game's cut scenes - an industry first.
An Unprecedented Level of Fear
Co-producer and series veterans Jun Takeuchi (Lost Planet) and Masachika Kawata (Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition, Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles) unleash an unprecedented level of fear for the next generation in Resident Evil 5, the sequel to one of the highest-rated video games in history according to Metacritic.com and Gamerankings.com. Promising to revolutionize the series by delivering an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control, Resident Evil 5 is certain to bring new fans to the series. These incredible changes to both the gameplay and world of Resident Evil make this a must-have game for gamers across the globe.
