Resident Evil 5’s Unlockable Mini-Game Revealed


Resident Evil games have always had great unlockables, so it should come as no shock that Resident Evil 5 will too. With only a week left to go before the big launch, Capcom has pulled the curtain back on The Mercenaries, an unlockable bonus mode allowing you to play as Chris or Sheva in timed survival challenges set within environments from the main story campaign. So yeah, it’s just like the Mercenaries mode in RE4, it seems. But that’s fine by me. Mercs was a fun side attraction before and should be once more.
