Resident Evil 5 was released way back in March, but Capcom's only now getting around to releasing some ambitious downloadable content for the latest zombie adventure (there was some at launch, too). Over the next few months, Capcom will distribute two downloadable episodes -- the Jill Valentine-starring Lost In Nightmares and an untitled second episode -- new costumes and a "The Mercenaries Reunion" mode with eight new characters and new weapon load-outs.
Capcom has released no details on what to expect from the second downloadable episode. Lost In Nightmares follows Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate Umbrella co-founder Ozwell E. Spencer's hidden mansion. Chris and Jill reunited for a mansion tour? Sounds pretty cool.
The content will be released through both Xbox Live, PlayStation Network and in a $49.99 "Gold Edition" at retail. All of the additional content will be included on the Blu-ray disc for PlayStation 3, while the DVD-based Xbox 360 version comes bundled with a download token.
Capcom has released a complete release schedule for the complicated roll out, too:
