For those RESIDENT EVIL fans who prefer a box copy, we are also happy to report that Capcom will be releasing a RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION that will include the original game plus all additional content. RESIDENT EVIL 5: GOLD EDITION will be available for $49.99 as a single Blu-ray disc for the PLAYSTATION 3 or as a DVD with a token for the downloadable content for XBOX 360. The Gold Edition will be available 3/9/10 for both Xbox 360 and PS3 in the U.S. and 3/12/10 in Europe.

Previously only seen during cut scenes of the original RESIDENT EVIL 5, the first new episode titled LOST IN NIGHTMARES, finds BSAA agent, Chris Redfield, working with his partner, Jill Valentine, as they investigate Ozwell E. Spencer’s hideaway. Spencer, the evil mastermind and co-founder of Umbrella Corporation, has been hiding a new evil deep within the basement of his mansion. Chris and Jill discover this grotesque evil standing in their way as the two enter deeper into the catacombs beneath the mansion.

Simultaneous with the release of LOST IN NIGHTMARES, new costumes for Chris and Sheva will be made available, allowing the player to experience RESIDENT EVIL 5 with a fresh new look and feel through both game play and cut-scene playback. A new refresh of Mercenaries Mode, THE MERCENARIES REUNION, gives players new playable characters and weapon load outs which provide players additional challenges as they aim to shoot down as many enemies as they can within a limited time. Each piece of downloadable content will contain two new playable characters. The GOLD EDITION will feature all eight.

LOST IN NIGHTMARES episode and Costume Pack 1 will be released on 2/17/10 for 360, and 2/18/10 for PS3. Episode 2 (title TBA) and Costume Pack 2 will hit on 3/3/10 for 360, and 3/4/10 for PS3.
