Resident Evil 5 launches on Xbox One, PS4 on June 28

The latest edition of Capcom’s Resident Evil 5 is slated for release on current-generation consoles on June 28, according to Xbox’s official website. According to the description on the console’s website, the game will feature 1080p resolution as well as an upgraded frame rate.

Resident Evil 5 originally came out on the Xbox 360, PC, and the Playstation 3 in March of 2009. Over the game’s lifetime, multiple pieces of downloadable content was released, including two story missions, a versus mode, as well as the “No Mercy” mode previously only available on the PC edition. All DLC will be packaged with the game on Xbox One and PS4 at a price of $19.99.

The Resident Evil franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, and the series creator Capcom is commemorating the historic survival-horror series with re-releases of many of the game’s biggest entries, including planned ports of Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 6 and Resident Evil 2 HD. In addition, multiplayer shooter Umbrella Corps, which is based on the Resident Evil universe, is slated for release in late June as well.

Though it did not receive the lofty accolades of its predecessor, Resident Evil 5 was a fairly well-received title and is actually one of the franchise’s best-selling releases. The game achieved mostly positive reviews, with particularly high marks from Game Informer (9.5/10) and IGN.com (9/10). Unlike the earlier entries in the franchise, Resident Evil 5 took a more action-based approach, playing more like a traditional third-person shooter such as Gears of War or Ghost Recon instead of a survival horror game.
