Resident Evil 5 PC dated

Resident Evil 5 PC dated

Resident Evil 5 has been dated on the PC and should be out by early March 2009.

Resident Evil 5 has been dated for the PC, though the bad news is that it won't be out this year according to MCV UK who also revealed the UK release date for Street Fighter IV.

Capcom looks set to have a busy first quarter in fact, with Bionic Commando, MotoGP Wii, Dead Rising Wii, Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5 launching all in the first few months.

Resident Evil 5 will, according to the release, be launching on Xbox 360, PC and PlayStation 3 on March 13th next year. Street Fighter IV meanwhile will get launched on the same platforms, PC included, on February 20th.

Resident Evil 5 has proven a controversial title for Capcom so far. Not only does the game shift the action from gothic corridors and creepy villages to sunny Africa but it has also been accused of racism and portraying Africa in a negative, poverty-wracked light. Capcom however has refuted these claims.

So, while the bad news is that the game won't be out until March next year, Capcom is at least keeping it's promises and staying close to the PC platform by releasing the game on PC and console formats at the same time.

What's your favourite Resident Evil game and which platform will you play Resi 5 on? Let us know in the forums.

sweet, lets hope it gets optimised for the Pc in terms of performance instead of a sloppy port. i also hope they add better controls for this one since i heard the fourth one was not that good in the controls department and NO, adding 360 controller support in not the option i want to see (complete sacrilege IMO).

btw, screw the racist comments.

^^ A controller would have been the best way to play it I would have thought.

I hope they'll make better port. It suffered mostly from bad graphics. It wasn't easy to learn controls but after few hours you should get used to it. Though I died countless times before I figured out which keys were "1", "3", "5", "6" :)

Hm, maybe if it's a decent port job. The first one scared the bejeesus out of me on PS1!

Didn't it not even have mouse support? I hope they do Res5 properly, a good indication might be the devil may cry port they did earlier this year. I never got my hands on it, was it decent?

I was very impressed with the PC port of DMC4. 'Twas decent. Best port of a game I've ever seen. Ran very well, looked even better.

It got *patched later*. However it would be better if it didn't need patch for better graphics...and it could use a better config program too. Even I as a self-taught programmer could write more user friendly config program.

I think that anyone taking the position that Africa isn't poverty-wracked is probably engaging in more than a little wishful thinking.
