Capcom Charges for Resident Evil 5 Mode
The post-launch content will cost gamers an additional $5 on Xbox Live Marketplace or PlayStation Network.
The new mode accommodates up to four players online across two 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.
Both game types will allow one-on-one or two-on-two matches.
The core Resident Evil 5 game revolves around co-op components as opposed to versus gameplay.
Charging for an extra game mode may elicit some negativity from gamers, but with the anticipation surrounding Resident Evil 5, its possible that many will look past having to pay to play, particularly if the mode turns out to be worthwhile.
