Resident Evil 5, known in Japan as Biohazard 5, is a 2009 third-person shooter game developed and published by Capcom. The seventh major installment in the Resident Evil series, it follows an investigation of a terrorist threat by Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) agents Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar in Kijuju, a fictional region of Africa. Chris soon learns that he must confront his past in the form of an old enemy, Albert Wesker, and his former partner, Jill Valentine.
Resident Evil 5 is a third-person shooter with an over-the-shoulder perspective. Players can use several weapons including firearms, grenade launchers, and melee attacks. Players can upgrade weapons with money and collected treasure and heal themselves with herbs. New features include infected enemies with guns and grenades, the ability to upgrade weapons at any time from the inventory screen without having to find a merchant, and the equipping of weapons and items in real time during gameplay. Each player can store nine items.
Resident Evil 5 is the first Resident Evil game designed for two-player co-op gameplay. The first player controls Chris Redfield and a second player (or AI) controls Sheva Alomar. If one player has critical health, only their partner can resuscitate them and they will die. At certain points, players are deliberately separated. Players can trade items during gameplay, although weapons cannot be traded with online players. A version of the Mercenaries minigame places the player in an enclosed environment with a time limit. Customized weapons cannot be used and players must search for weapons, ammunition, and time bonuses while fighting a barrage of enemies to score as many points as possible within the time limit. The minigame multiplayer mode was initially offline only; a release-day patch needed to be downloaded to access the online multiplayer modes. Mercenaries is unlocked when the story mode has been completed.
Resident Evil 5 received generally well by critics, who praised its visuals and content. Several reviewers considered it to be a departure from the survival horror genre, a decision they lamented. DLC reception was favorable and, in 2016, Resident Evil 5 had become the best-selling Resident Evil game and the all-time best-selling Capcom game. It also won numerous awards.
