A Biohazard 5: Alternative Edition Trailer

By Spencer . October 1, 2009 . 10:03am

Biohazard 5: Alternative Edition (aka Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition) has an extra episode that takes place before the events in Resident Evil 5.


The new area is a flashback where you control Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in Spencer’s mansion. Alternative Edition, similar to Lost Planet: Colonies Edition, is online compatible with the original Resident Evil 5. However, it isn’t clear if players will be able to use Sony’s motion controller for online play. Also, if you’re not convinvced motion control will make Biohazard 5: Alternative Edition a better game you can play it with a regular Dualshock 3 controller.

    Thanks Capcom for selling us a half-baked game (Again). At first DLC that is already on the disc, now the stand alone expansion.

    • Agreed. I really don’t know why we can’t have this as some sort of expansion DLC. Maybe they’ll offer it a month after the retail game hits to sucker big-time RE fans into double-dipping.

      It’s like Madden or NBA of FIFA games… they don’t -need- to release a retail disc every year anymore. They can just offer an “updated roster” patch DLC or something.

      But it’s business. These companies need to line their wallets somehow. Unfortunately, some of them resort to this kind of tactic.

        I’ve gotten used to what DLC means now, either something on disc that’s locked away, or stupid ribbons/scarves… they would never let us buy a patch for any “substantial” addition like Patty for Vesperia…

        After seeing the interview before, I had a hard time imagining that goofy chick being Jill’s voice. Double dipping be damned…

        • It’s hard for me to get over the DLC excitement when they announce support for it upon release of a game. It almost never seems to pan out. Promises of tons of DLC support usually leaves me filled with dillusions. Dreams are usually crushed with a single DLC (a costume) or only one small map. It’s not always the case but good DLC is often the exception to the rule. Don’t get me wrong, I love my costumes and such if they’re offered but I think companies often view the next game instead of the DLC after all is said and done.

          Games that definitely feel like they’ve supported DLC lately (that I haven’t even gotten around to yet) seem to be Fable II and Fallout 3. What is it-3 expansions each by now?

          • Aoshi00

            It seems that US games were the ones w/ really good and reasonable DLCs, like GTA4, Fallout 3, Mass Effect, that you really get to play new missions and maps. While the Jpn games seem to be milking people w/w/ costumes and other trivial bits (Raiden 4’s other two jets as DLCs..).

  • Are we EVER going to find out what happened with Ada and Tricell?

    • MisterNiwa

      Ada drew pension and ended up living in a great apartment in Paris.

      I’d like to know what you are killing in the Spencer Estate, Zoooooombies? :D

      • You’re making Jill sandwiches is what you’re doing.

        Also, yea, that does sound like something Ada would do.

        • MisterNiwa

          Touché, Ishaan, Touché.

    • EvilAkito

      I’m honestly still trying to figure out Ada’s motivation for getting involved in all of this. In fact, I’m still trying to figure out how all of Umbrella’s top scientists can be total sociopaths that are so devoid of any moral or ethical reasoning that they willingly subject human specimens to the most horrifying scientific experiments imaginable (Lisa Trevor, anyone?) all in order to create horribly grotesque bio-weapons.
