Resident Evil 5 Versus DLC available from tomorrow
Capcom has announced that the new online multiplayer Versus mode for Resident Evil 5 will be available to download on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network from tomorrow, Tuesday 7th April.
For 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, or $4.99/€4.99/£3.99 on the PlayStation Network, Resident Evil fans will be able to go up against each other in “the most terrifying Versus mode to date.”
Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer’s Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. Now it might just be us, but doesn’t that sound an awful lot like Resi 5’s standard Mercenaries mode?
Survivor’s Rule is more of your standard deathmatch, where players get to duke it out amongst each other. Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles.
Resident Evil 5’s Versus DLC caused controversy when it was announced on the eve of Resi 5’s launch, only for Capcom to create further uproar by revealing that the mode would only cost 160 MS Points in Japan.
But with Resident Evil 5’s infamously clunky control system to contend with, will it actually be any good?
