Capcom today announced that PC gamers will finally be able to get their hands on Resident Evil 5, with the acclaimed sequel set for release with exclusive PC features later this year.
In Resident Evil 5, returning hero Chris Redfield is sent to Africa to investigate a biological weapon that is transforming the populace into aggressive and disturbing creatures. Joined by another local BSAA agent, Sheva Alomar, the two must work together to solve the truth behind the frightening turn of events.
The PC version of Resident Evil 5 will feature online play for co-operative play sessions over the internet and will also take advantage of NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision technology.
Capcom also confirmed today that Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando will be released this July, each offering features exclusive to the PC.
The PC version of Street Fighter IV will feature online play, higher screen resolutions and three new shaders based on three of the “artistic” trailers released in 2008: watercolor, posterization and sumi-e ink.
The PC version of Bionic Commando will support higher resolutions than the console version, re-mappable controls, support for both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 and online connectivity for multiplayer sessions.
