Resident Evil 5, known in Japan as biohazard 5, is the forthcoming installment in the Resident Evil survival horror series, which is set to debut for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. It will be developed and published by Capcom. Although Capcom officially announced the title on July 20, 2005, the game's actual release date has yet to be announced. The producer of the game has stated Resident Evil 5 has been pushed back to some time in 2009.

Development


Jun takeuchi ,the director of Onimusha and producer of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, will take over producer duties from Hiroyuki Kobayashi. Keiji Inafune, who served as promotional producer for Resident Evil 2 and executive producer for Resident Evil 4's PlayStation 2 version, is overseeing the project. In February of 2007, members of Capcom’s Clover Studio were also called upon to help develop the game. However, many developers from the studio moved on to work on the Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, which debuted for the Wii. Several staff members who also worked on the original Resident Evil are involved in development. According to Takeuchi, the game will utilize the same gameplay model introduced in Resident Evil 4, while implementing thematics from the original Resident Evil into the game.

Although the game garnered much interest among Resident Evil fans, Capcom did not present any footage or information about Resident Evil 5 at E3 2006. Capcom revealed a brief new trailer for the game at E3 2007. They concluded the screening by stating Resident Evil 5 will not be released anytime in 2007. The full E3 trailer for the game became available on the Xbox 360 Marketplace and PlayStation Network Store on July 26, 2007.

Details


Few details have been released about the game's storyline other than the fact that the setting will have a similar feel to the movie Black Hawk Down. Takeuchi added that the developing team is composed of staff members who worked on the first Resident Evil. Despite the lack of information, he has stated that Resident Evil 5 will be an actual sequel to the Resident Evil series. Before Takeuchi took over, the game's former producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi stated "it's safe to say that Resident Evil 5 will naturally proceed from where Resident Evil 4 left off."

In a July 2007 Famitsu interview, producer Jun Takeuchi revealed the main playable character as Chris Redfield and the game takes place ten years after the events of the original Resident Evil. The story will explore Chris' life during the ten year interval between the two games. During the game's events, he is a member of a group known as BSAA, and sent to investigate an incident in a desert area that serves as the game's setting. Takeuchi also confirmed that a female character from the series, who is seen briefly at the end of the trailer, will appear in the game.

Gameplay


the game's producer, stated the Resident Evil 5 will feature similar gameplay to Resident Evil 4 The player will control Redfield similarly to how the player controlled Leon Kennedy in Resident Evil 4. The game's environment will also play a significant role. For example, if Redfield suffers prolonged exposure to heat, he will begin to see mirages and hallucinations. Also, the game implements various lighting effects. If Redfield moves between bright and dark areas his eyes will have to adjust, causing the player to briefly lose some visual of their surroundings.

The game will also feature new types of enemies. The extended E3 trailer revealed several sequences involving Redfield attacking hordes of fleet-footed enemies, who possessed melee weapons. Takeuchi has also stated the game's enemies will also possess human-like intelligence and awareness. Furthermore, he stated they will be different from the previous zombies and ganados.

In an interview with Xbox360ism, Keiji Inafune briefly stated that the game will feature some online elements. One of the game trailers has been released on blu-ray copies of Resident Evil: Extinction.


People will "flip out" over Resident Evil 5


Capcom’s Senior Director of Communications and Community, Chris Kramer, has promised that users will “flip out” over the forthcoming horror title Resident Evil 5 - that is, once people are able to get a hands-on experience with the game later this year.

Speaking during an interview with Major Nelson, Kramer commented, "Just being able to see Resident Evil 5 running, I'm like 'Oh my god!' Honestly, when we start showing more of that, when we start letting people go hands-on with that, people are going to flip out.”

“That game to me is super exciting,” he enthused.

Kramer’s comments come following a recent meeting in Japan, where he was able to meet the producers of a number of upcoming Capcom titles due for release over the next few years.

When asked what to expect from the company in 2008, he replied: “We have a really fantastic year ahead of us, a year that's going to include games like... Resident Evil 5...”

Resident Evil 5 is due out on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and pits players in the shoes of series veteran, Chris Redfield; a former member of the Raccoon Police Department’s elite S.T.A.R.S unit, previously responsible for its involvement in the 1998 “Mansion Incident” from the original Resident Evil.

Now working for a mysterious organisation known as “BSAA”, Redfield finds himself investigating a biohazardous outbreak in a remote African-like setting, where something has befallen the local residents, turning them into brutal killers baying for blood.

So far, the game has yet to receive a firm release date, with Capcom only commenting that a 2009 release is likely. However, fellow Internet blogger “Surfer Girl” believes that the game will hit shelves around September this year.

Stay tuned for more information on the game as soon as it becomes available. For now, head over to PSU's wish list to see what we're hoping to see from this latest instalment in the Survival Horror series.Furthermore, Inafune revealed that RE5 will have online elements. This is all the information we have right now.
