The Good News: Resident Evil 5 will have additional multiplayer modes. The additions of free-for-all and team-based deathmatch for four players, as well as a mode where players compete for a higher zombie kill count (as per 1UP). This certainly will offer players hours of additional playtime after the campaign has been completed.
The Bad News: This DLC is planned to arrive "a few weeks" after the game’s release, and will be priced at 400 Microsoft points on the Xbox Live Marketplace (again 1UP). This $5 cash grab is for the download key that unlocks the content that is currently on the disk already! This content was already described in the game’s strategy guide.
I guess this in away justifies my earlier post about cost being an issue with me and this title. Again, I will look forward to this game down the line. In related news I purchased H.A.W.X today and got a smokin’ deal to boot! Co-op anyone?
