Spoiler-Filled Resident Evil 5 PC Trailer


Unless you’ve already played through one of the console versions of Resident Evil 5, you may want to be careful when watching this new trailer for the upcoming PC version. It’s a fine trailer with footage of the enhanced Mercenaries mode and a sneak peek at some of the goofy new character costumes, but at the same time it completely spoils a big twist in the game’s storyline. Granted, it’s a predictable plot twist many players had figured out well before the console versions dropped, but I still didn’t expect Capcom to come out and blatantly spoil it like this. I’m actually only about halfway through the PS3 version — that’s right, I still haven’t finished the game yet, but hey, a ton of games have come out this year and I can’t play ’em all — and I do feel like the trailer spoiled parts of the game for me.

So anyway, just thought I’d give you a quick word of warning. The trailer is posted on the jump if you want to watch it. If you skip ahead to around the 50-second mark you should be safe. Proceed with caution.
