Capcom celebrates the holidays with box art and screenshots Resident Evil 5
Around this time, more and more people are taking a vacation and to celebrate, Capcom has released some screenshots of Resident Evil 5. The screenshots show that the game is going to score well on the graphic level and we also see some of the characters that are in the game up close. In addition to the screenshots, they also presented the box art (click on the image for a large version).
Resident Evil 5 is of course another third-person action/horror game. This time the setting is a sweltering African city and this time you have Chris Redfield under the control, an old acquaintance from the previous Resident Evil titles. Chris has started working for the BSAA organization and on behalf of this company he is sent to Africa to investigate an accident in the desert.
In addition to various enemies, you also have to take on the heat. You can’t stay in the sun for too long and you have to look for shade every now and then. Light also plays tricks on you in the game, because your eyes have to get used to dark or light environments every now and then. As a result, your vision temporarily deteriorates, which of course provides the necessary scare.
Resident Evil 5 will be released March 13, 2009 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Update: Boxart renewed to European version.
