Resident Evil 5 will feature online co-op. That's right folks, we get to cap some zombie fodder online with a buddy in Capcom's latest installment to their epic survival horror series. Resident Evil 5 puts Chris Redfield, Resident Evil 1's main protagonist and Resident Evil: Code Veronica's supporting character, in the middle of Africa, where an 'outbreak' has occured.
The game retains Resident Evil 4's control scheme, where we get an over-the-shoulder control and aiming mechanism. Also, RE5 supports a lot of environmental interactivity where you can shoot off exploding barrells, walls and such to your advantage. The brand new zombies in the demo appeared to be much more mobile and fierce compared to previous titles. From what we have seen, Capcom brings us yet another Game of the Year contender like their masterpiece, Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 5 will be launching worldwide on March 13, 2009 - yes, that's Friday, the 13th - kitchen knives out!
