First Resi 5 "Versus" shots

New multiplayer mode no longer rumour and speculation

Capcom has given the first details on a new downloadable content pack for Resi 5, which will add some new multiplayer functions, as we reported yesterday.

Capcom explains: "Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer's Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. In Survivor's Rule, players hunt the most dangerous game, each other! Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles."

Versus will be available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network "a few weeks after" Resident Evil 5 ships this Friday. It will cost 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE or €4.99/£3.99 on the PlayStation Network.
