Resident Evil 5 Lands Sometime 2008 |

Very little is known about Resident Evil 5, in fact I don’t think anything that’s been hinted at, has even been officially confirmed by Capcom but Producer Jun Takeuchi has spilled a lit bit of info via, reported by, about one of my most anticipated games for the PS3 (also available for the 360).

Firstly he says the game might not be released until 2008. January 1st 2008 or December 31st 2008? I can live with the former…

Capcom is aiming to have the game running at a super smooth 60fps, and with the new game engine they are using, they’re aiming to have realistic facial expressions and animations. Special attention is being paid to the character’s hair, with each individual strand being realistically built from root to tip. I bet the undead will never look so good. That’s if there are even zombies in Resi 5.

Resident Evil 5

You will be able to interact with the environments on a far grander scale than any of the previous Resi games. I don’t know if this means more QTE that appeared in Resi 4 or if you can use the surroundings to your advantage to help in your battle against the zombie (hopefully) scum. It probably means both.

Lastly, the temperature will effect the way your character is able to navigate his surroundings, with both extreme hot and cold temperatures effecting the gameplay. I can guess that if you’re in a cold environment your aim will be shaky as you shiver due to the cold or in a hot environment your weapon could overheat, resulting in the dead man’s click of your weapon jamming. Maybe..

I want this game bad, real bad but I will have other games to keep me occupied throughout 2007 so the wait should be manageable.

Resi 5 Gameplay Hints

  • Sporty

    Not surprising. it took 3 years to get RE4 out. The first DMC started out being RE4. I’m kinda looking forward to this one but either way it’s so far off anyways.

  • There’s going to be a lot of cool games out next year so it’s not as if there’s a gaming drought or anything…

  • I just hope the gaming journalist community doesnt gush over this one like they did RE4. The game was good, but was it THAT good. I think it mostly had to do with the franchise finally being pulled out of mediocrity.

    Resident Evil 5 is going to be sooooo badass !!!! I love survival horror games.

  • I loved Resi 4 but Resi 1 on PSone is still my favourite Resi game by far.

    Resi 4 had to do some different from the previous games because the series had become stale and.

    The over the shoulder viewpoint was excellent and it still played like a Resi game and felt like a Resi game.

    It will be interesting to see just how similar Resi 5 is to Resi 4, whether they use the same viewpoint or go back to the early days.
