The iconic game console horror franchise, Resident Evil 5, now has a remastered edition and it is now available for download on the Xbox Store and the Sony Playstation Store.
Fans of the iconic horror game can now enjoy crisper graphics as well as a new difficulty level that will surely test your mettle in the horror-survival game genre.
The thing about the Resident Evil 5 remastered edition is that it also comes with all of the two DLC packs. These two DLC packs explains certain events found in the original game.
As previously mentioned, the Resident Evil 5 Remastered edition comes with a new difficulty setting called the “No Mercy” mode. In this mode, the number of zombies you need to kill has been increased dramatically from the normal difficulty.
The new difficulty setting is made possible thanks to the powerful hardware baked into the new game consoles (Xbox One and the Playstation 4).
The Mercenaries mode has also been revamped. The new name of this mode is the “Mercenaries United” and it is just the same as the old Mercenaries mode; the major difference being that everything is already unlocked.
This means that you do not have to undergo that painstaking process of getting everything back again, therefore, you can enjoy what this game has to offer right off the bat.
The Resident Evil 5 Remastered edition probably bodes better than the remastered Resident Evil 6. With the new difficulty, crispier graphics, and a revamped Mercenaries mode, I think the new edition is looking pretty good.
For those of you who do not know but are interested to know about the game, the game follows Chris Redfield. The story of the game starts after the events of Resident Evil 4.
Chris and his new partner, Sheva Alomar, are tasked to go to Kijuju, Africa to apprehend Ricardo Irving.
It seems that Ricardo has a bio-organic weapon and he is about to sell it to some terrorists for some huge sums of money.
Apparently, some of the African natives were already infected with a parasite that turns them into zombies.
During a confrontation with Irving, he left clues that Jill might still be alive. Jill was one of the main characters in Resident Evil 3.
After the confrontation, Chris didn’t report back to his home base and instead, went and investigate whether Jill is really alive or not.
The Resident Evil 5 Remastered edition looks promising. From a graphical standpoint, I would say that the game is beautifully remastered.
It truly makes use of the current game consoles hardware prowess really well. Thanks to Sony Playstation 4 and the Xbox One’s hardware capabilities, the “No Mercy” mode sure is gratifying for people who want to shoot as many zombies as possible.
The Resident Evil 5 Remastered edition is now available on the Playstation store and the Xbox One store. Players who want the physical copy of the game might have to wait a little longer as they will be released on the 12th of July.
