Kind-of-playable build of Resident Evil 1.5 translated and released by fans

Fans tinkering with a scrapped build of Resident Evil 1.5 (a game which, before being beheaded, was originally intended to be Resident Evil 2) have released a translated build of the project which can be downloaded and played for free.


Resident Evil 1.5 has long been coveted by fans of Capcom's survival horror franchise. While the released ISO is unstable and prone to crashing, it offers a fascinating glimpse at what could have been.

After being discovered, the Resident Evil 1.5 build became embroiled in major internal politics, the game was released earlier than expected to prevent an eBay user from profiting by selling the build online.

The Resident Evil 1.5 ISO can be downloaded here. As previously mentioned, it is unstable and very rough, the restoration progress is ongoing.
