Resi 5 Versus DLC on track in Europe

Despite two week slip in Japan

Capcom's told CVG that the release of the Resident Evil 5 Versus mode DLC hasn't been delayed in Europe, despite suffering a two week slip in Japan.

The online multiplayer mode was reportedly due to launch in Japan at the end of March but seems to have been delayed a week or two according to various reports.


A European launch date for the DLC had never been announced and Capcom still hasn't got a firm date, although a UK rep told us this morning that it's still on track for release a few weeks after the game came out, which was on March 13.

"As we've never announced a date for the RE5 DLC in Europe beyond saying it'll be a few weeks after release, it wouldn't be accurate to say it's delayed here. We are still on track for that window of 'a few weeks after release'," we were told.

"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," says Capcom.

When it does launch, Versus mode will be available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network for 400 Microsoft Points and €4.99/£3.99 respectively.
