Resident Evil 5, Yes FIVE, Gets a New Update on Steam

Improved Boulder-Punching

There’s so much excitement over Resident Evil these days. There is the RE 4 Remake coming up, plus the VR version of Resident Evil Village. The base game is still a banger as well. However, it seems that Resident Evil 5 is feeling left out, so a new update on Steam was pushed out.

This is the game where Capcom began to focus more on the action and gunplay of Resident Evil. It was also structured for co-op, something that was really only explored in 5 and 6. We don’t like to talk about RE 6 though.

The new update doesn’t reinvent the wheel or anything, but it is an improvement nonetheless. For one, Games for Windows Live support has been removed, so players don’t have to deal with that anymore. The other big point is that Resident Evil 5 now supports split-screen on Steam. The co-op game finally feels like a co-op game.

Other than other minor bug fixes, there isn’t really anything else new with the game. Since Capcom has been busy remaking all the Resident Evil games, it will be interesting to see if Resident Evil 5 and 6 get the same treatment as the others.

Resident Evil 5 is available on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
