Resident Evil 5 will take place after the events of Resident Evil 4, and approximately 8-10 years after the events of the original Resident Evil. The setting moves to African in a remote town called "Kijuju". Chris Redfield a former member of the S.T.A.R.S. team is now working for a new organization call the B.S.A.A. (Bio-terrorism Security Assessment Alliance). The B.S.A.A. is responsible for investigating, and preventing any type of biological weapons from being used. A report of a incident occurring in Western African sends Chris and his team to investigate.
Upon arrival we will meet a new characther to the series name Sheva Alomar. Sheva works for the Western African division of the B.S.A.A., and is assigned to assist Chris and his team around the area because of her extensive knowledge of that territory.
It does not take long after investigating that the B.S.A.A. discovers something is not right. Everyone is acting strange, and they seem to be infected with a unknown virus. Suddenly the investigation turns hostile as people there begin to attack the B.S.A.A. squad. Along with fighting for survival it is up to Chris and Sheva to also uncover the truth about what is really going on...
-Sheva and Chris will be our two main protagonist for Resident Evil 5. Both are the confirmed playable characters.
-The game's environment will play a significant role. One example of the environment effecting your character is prolonged exposure to sunlight in the game which leads to you seeing hallucinations in the game. The game so far has only been seen in the day with the sun out bright with the exception of footage being shown of you entering houses buildings which are more dark.
-Lighting also plays an important role such as when you shift from a bright or dark area Chris Redfield will have to adjust his eye sight from moving from a bright area to a dark area or vice versa causing you as the player to lose briefly some sight to your surroundings leaving your vulnerable if not careful.
-A new control scheme has also been promised.
-The Mercenaries Mini-Game which was introduced in Resident Evil 3, but more effectively in Resident Evil 4 will be back. No word on which characters will be in the mini game but it is almost certain Chris Redfield, and the new female partner will be two playable characters.
-The enemies you face off against this time are said to be more fast, attack in greater numbers then in Resident Evil 4, possess human-like intelligence and awareness according to producer Jun Takeuchi. The chainsaw wielding enemy also makes a return in Resident Evil 5 to put you in further panic when playing the game.
-For the first time in the series, an online co-op story mode will be introduced that will feature in and out game play meaning anyone can enter and leave anytime during the game. It was also noted that both players are not required to stick together, and can be separated at points in the game.
