Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition – Desperate Escape revealed – UPDATED

Submitted by on Wednesday, 16 December 20092 Comments

Jill and JoshThe second downloadable scenario for Resident Evil 5 has finally been revealed. We hope you like Jill Sandwiches.

The latest issue of Famitsu has announced that Jill Valentine and John Stone will be featured in the Despite Escape scenario. Taking place during the time when Chris and Sheva are after Wesker, Josh and Jill are trying to make their escape. Obviously something interesting happens along the way, or else this would be pretty pointless. We can’t imagine how long such a scenario can be though, and it would be very disappointing if it was short lived. Seeing as Jill is the “master of unlocking”, what could possibly go wrong?

It’s nice to know that there will be a new character to play as in this scenario. For those that aren’t aware, Josh Stone is a member of the BSAA in West Africa and is a pretty important character in RE5.


In the new scans below from Rely on Horror, we get to see not only Jill and Josh, but two more Mercenaries Reunion characters. Chris is sporting a costume called exoskeleton and Sheva is wearing a business suit, which was once a PC exclusive costume.

Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition, which is also known as RE5: Gold, will be releasing on Blu-ray on March 9th and will contain all of the downloadable content for the game on the disc itself. Desperate Escape and costume pack 2 are scheduled to be released on the PSN on March 4th. Lost in Nightmares and costume pack 1 will be released on February 18th.
