After the awesomeness that was Resident Evil 4, fans expected Capcom to hit the ball out of the park again with Resident Evil 5. However, that wasn’t entirely the case, but for those who haven’t tried it out, it is coming to Xbox One and Windows PC in 2016.
According to Capcom, the game will launch on the Xbox One come June 28. As for the retail version, it will hit store shelves come July 12. Interested folks can pre-order Resident Evil 5 right now via the Xbox Store.
Here’s what Capcom had to say via its blog:
Resident Evil 5 is one of the most dramatic, high-tension entries in the series, as Chris and Sheva battle through the African settlement of Kijuju, which has been infected by the mysterious Uroboros virus. The duo uses a diverse arsenal of upgradeable weapons to fight the gigantic Executioner Majini, powerful Lickers, and even evil franchise villain Albert Wesker. The suave antagonist is back with his most grandiose scheme yet, aided by enigmatic masked ally.
Two players can team up to play through the intense and extensive campaign together, which includes boating through gator-infested swamps and exploring ancient ruins beneath Kijuju. Co-op in this game builds off of the satisfying, deliberate, and revolutionary gunplay introduced in Resident Evil 4. Friends can team up for both local split-screen and online co-op play. Remember, friendships can either be strengthened or shattered depending on how quick you are to heal your buddy with that first-aid spray.
After the release of Resident Evil 5, Capcom went ahead and began work on Resident Evil 6. Unfortunately, that game turned out to be a terrible experience for the most part. Capcom attempted to create multiple games in a single experience and failed.
Want a different type of zombie video game? The Escapist: The Walking Dead from Telltale Games could deliver what you’re looking for. Furthermore, we’d rather recommend an interesting title known as Dead Island. The series got a definitive edition re-release on the Xbox One recently, and it looks great.
