Get Your Resident Evil 5 DLC News Fix

on November 19, 2009 8:13 PM

Capcom has given us a good amount of details today on the upcoming Resident Evil 5 content. The new content will be available throughout the months of February and March of next year, on the Xbox Live marketplace and Playstation Network. Also, the new content along with the original Resident Evil 5 will be available in disc form, and will be known as Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. The new content includes two episodes, new costumes, and  “The Mercenaries Reunion” mode.

The first of the two new episodes is called “LOST IN NIGHTMARES.” Capcom gives us details on the episode:

“Previously only seen during cut scenes of the original Resident Evil 5, the first new episode titled “LOST IN NIGHTMARES,” finds BSAA agent, Chris Redfield, working with his partner, Jill Valentine, as they investigate Ozwell E. Spencer’s hideaway. Spencer, the evil mastermind and co-founder of Umbrella Corporation, has been hiding a new evil deep within the basement of his mansion. Chris and Jill discover this grotesque evil standing in their way as the two enter deeper into the catacombs beneath the mansion.”

Unfortunately, the details and title of the second of the two new episodes has not been released as of now. Both of the episodes and two costume packs will all be available as separate download packs. Each of the downloads will come with two new characters and new weapons for “The Mercenaries Reunion” mode, totaling to 8 new characters. Lastly, here are all the details on the release dates for all the DLC in 2010 for the US and Europe.
