Desperate Escape DLC Now Available For Resident Evil 5

Need another dose of one of Capcom’s most celebrated and intense action series? Well fret not because Capcom has just released its second downloadable content episode for Resident Evil 5. “Desperate Escape” is now available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.

This, the second major story pack for Resident Evil 5, pairs Jill Valentine and Josh Stone in another harrowing lost chapter of the Resident Evil 5 story. Freed of a mind control device, a fatigued Jill Valentine finds herself awakened by BSAA agent Josh Stone. Jill and Josh must work together to escape from the Tricell facility under the darkness of night.. Players will fight-off unrelenting waves of enemies in heart pumping blockbuster action, guiding Jill and Josh as they race to assist Chris and Sheva in their final showdown with Albert Wesker.

Also available are new costumes for use in the RE5 campaign which add new flair to both gameplay and cut scenes. Costume Pack 2 includes Chris Redfield’s “Heavy Metal” costume and Sheva Alomar in her new “Business” outfit.

Not only is there a new episode and new costumes, but the remaining four of eight characters for The Mercenaries Reunion are available if you download both DLC packs. “Desperate Escape” includes Rebecca Chambers and Josh Stone; while Costume pack 2 not only includes Chris and Sheva’s new costumes for the main storyline, but they are also playable characters in The Mercenaries Reunion. Each character has their own unique weapon load outs, providing players with additional challenges as they shoot down as many enemies as they can within the time limit.

Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, available March 9th, will include the original Resident Evil 5 game plus all downloadable content on a single Blu-Ray disk for PS3. For the Xbox 360, Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition includes the original Resident Evil 5 plus a token for all downloadable content.
