Dom Matthews of Capcom Europe has given the heads up on the release of Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition. The ultimate collection includes the complete Resident Evil 5 game and all downloadable content – such as single player episodes and multiplayer modes – that has been released for the game to date.
Below is a list of all the items bundled in Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition.
- Resident Evil 5 – the original horror masterpiece
- New Episode: Lost in Nightmares
- New Episode: Desperate Escape
- The Mercenaries Reunion
- 4 New Costumes
- Versus Mode
Dom was kind enough to detail each of the additional content:
First up is Lost in Nightmares, which takes Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine to the infamous Spencer Mansion – but this time in glorious High Definition. Previously only seen in a Resident Evil 5 cut scene, Lost in Nightmares tells the story of when Chris and Jill enter the mansion and end up face to face with terror. Packed with puzzles and infused with its characteristic atmosphere, Lost in Nightmares takes Resident Evil 5 back to some of its heritage.
Unlike the puzzle based Lost in Nightmares, Desperate Escape, the second additional episode, is a full throttle battle against unrelenting waves of enemies. Desperate Escape tells the story of when BSAA agent Josh Stone and Jill fight together to escape the Tricell facility through hordes of Majini.
Mercenaries Reunion gives you the opportunity to play Mercenaries mode with some real classic Resident Evil characters. First off you can play as Josh Stone from Desperate Escape and Excella from Resident Evil 5. You can also play as rookie S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers and the legendary Barry Burton.
In Versus Mode you can lead your favourite RE5 characters into the horror online. Compete for points by taking on the Majini or fight against other players in Slayers mode. You can fight alone or in a team of up to 4.
In addition to all of the above you get 4 fetching new costumes for Sheva and Chris which can be used throughout the game’s various modes.
