View Full Version : Resident Evil 5

21-07-05, 23:19
Yesterday, word first broke out about a new, next generation game in the Resident Evil series. Our early preview of the game, which we put together from information featured in the latest issue of Famitsu, made reference to a high definition trailer video from which all the screenshots in the magazine were taken. Today, at Sony's 2005 PlayStation Meeting in Japan, we got a chance to view the trailer for ourselves. Lucky for you, we were allowed to film! And even luckier for you, we had a tripod!

Capcom didn't have any representatives on hand to talk about the game or the trailer, so we don't have any further details on the game aside from what we shared in our preview from yesterday. Viewing the trailer should help to solidify some of the themes and ideas mentioned in that story, at least until Capcom tells us more.

Download the first footage of >> Resident Evil 5 << (http://media.ps3.ign.com/media/734/734381/vids_1.html) in the video section. We've also uploaded a few screens for those who aren't into video. - IGN.com

Exciting huh? I wonder who this guy (the main character) is. Is it Chris Redfield from the Resident Evil 1 and Code Veronica, Billy Coen from Resident Evil Zero or Carlos Olivera from Resident Evil 3: Nemesis or a brand new character?

I think it is Carlos Oliveria or maybe not cause all of the RE characters have appear only twice in the series except for Leon who was in RE2,RE Gaiden, and RE4. If it's Chris Claire will appear in the game too I think :rolleyes: .
That was an awesome video and it looks like the zombies are back or not cause they were running.
Thanks for posting the image and the video!If so I would never knew there was some screens and a video.

Leon's way cuter. :D

Maybe its that dude from Resident Evil: Dead Aim, i think his name is Bruce McGivern. Heres a pic.


Just a theory.


Just noticed that Bruce has blondey hair, and the new guy in RE5 has brown, so im going with either Chris or Carlos, maybe Barry?

I think it's either Chris or Carlos as well, not Barry as he is like 45 or something (too old). If it is Chris then of coarse Claire would be in it like Freddy said or if it's Carlos then Jill would be in it (she is my favourite) so hopefully he is. I don't know if the game is set before RE4 or after because I think the zombies are back so that means Umbrella, so it's before. Or if it's after RE4 then Wesker has remade Umbrella with the help of Ada I think. We have to wait and see. I think this game is for both the PS3 and Xbox360.

No Leon? :( *weeps pathetically*

Ah well, I just got too attached that's all. I hope its Carlos, cause he was really cool, cooler than Chris I think.

And I think Wesker will definately be in it some how. I don't know about Ada though, what part could ada possibly play without Leon there? ;)

Nah, I really like Ada, I wish we could play as her now as the lead. We need a female in the lead again!

Thanks Apofiss. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif I can't wait for this game. I really hope there's a female playable character in this game or at leased a bonus sub game.

Resident Evil makes me wee myself just a little bit. I used to scream at everything. I stopped playing after those massive spiders in the guardhouse in number 1. In fact I used to take the game out of my Playstation at night and put my heaviest book on top of it so that nothing could escape. I was 13. LOL!

I love Bruce McGivern.. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/redface.gif :D

I adore Resident Evil. I used to hire them out from the local video shop. Bought Dead Aim and completed it but I can't get through Code Veronica because I forgot to keep the fire extinguisher right from the beginning of the game *seethe*.

25-07-05, 20:49
Mmm... Resident Evil, new RE movie is coming and game, can't wait for all this and definitely for PS3!

25-07-05, 21:21
RE5 is coming to Xbox 360 as well but I don't know which version to get. Even though I buying both the PS3 and Xbox360. I will have to wait and see which is the better version but I think they will be equally the same.

LauraKR17, you don't need the fire extinguisher to complete the game it's only to get a powerful weapon to help with the final boss but to be honest you don't really need it.

25-07-05, 21:28
Oh yeah I forgot, it's to get the magnum or something. But I really don't have any ammo so I needed it and I don't have enough health packs to get away from mutant Steve. :( I've had to start all over again! And I already did that once when I didn't have enough ammo for the mutant in the back of the plane.. *sob* It is truly the hardest game I have ever played.

25-07-05, 21:43
The best way to conserve ammo is to use your knife (only on zombies, kill around 1 or 2 in a room maybe 3 if it's a big room no more) and also if you can get past an enemy without fighting do it. If there in your way, show no mercy. And don't forget your bowgun to conserve ammo. ;)

Tomb Raider 5194
25-07-05, 21:53
Yes and when you are going to fight mutant steve leave all weapons to Chris especially the bowgun with exploting arrows that will help against Alexia part 2.

25-07-05, 21:59
Yes. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif There is a strategy to kill the tyrant on the plane without using any ammo (well kind of) and to not even get hurt or use a health spray/herbs. If you would like to know I'll tell you.

26-07-05, 02:45
*nods desperately* please!!

Thanks for the tips. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

When you have control of Claire before you go into the cargo bay to face the tyrant equip yourself with the bowgun with 30 bowgun powder arrows (bowgun powder locations below). Enter the cargo bay don't move, just press R1 to auto aim and fire all 30 bowgun powder arrows into the tyrant. You will not even see him but you will still hit him will the arrows. After all 30 arrows are gone press the release button to release the Crete and send the tyrant flying out of the plain and with not even getting a single scratch on you. The reason because of this is if you go and look at the tyrant after firing 30 bowgun powder arrows into him you will notice he is bleeding a key sign to release the Crete.

Bowgun powder locations.

In the rest room in the palace you will find a duralumin case which can only be opened with a lockpick (do you know how to get the lockpick? It's from Rodrigo after you give him homeostatic medicine and the lighter) inside is bowgun powder.

In the military training facility in the storage room there's a cabinet that's locked which you will need a key which is located in the sauna and swimming pool room in this building. You need to use the valve to turn of the fountain and you will find something flashing in the middle of the pool it's the key with a tag. Go back to the storage room and unlock the cabinet and there's the bowgun powder.

After finding the silver key from the privet residents return to the palace leave the save room and head down the small set of steps, along the balcony overlooking the lobby, and up the few more steps to the locked door which you can now unlock with the silver key. This is the game room and on the roulette table is the bowgun powder.

Now you have 3 bowgun powders combine them with bowgun arrows to get the 30 bowgun powder arrows. Now take out the bowgun powder arrows from the bowgun and put normal arrows in it and put the powder arrows into the item chest until the time comes.

To get the fire extinguisher.

It is likely in the first security box. To get it place all your metallic items in the second secretly box (including the lockpick or lighter depending if you came to the area first or after visiting Rodrigo) run back through the door which was blocked by the crete (your should have pushed it out of the way by now) and through 2 more doors until you arrive in the guillotine room. Go through one more door and take the fire extinguisher from the first security box. Run all the way back to the door you just came from which was blocked with the crete and put the extinguisher into the item box (not secretly box).

I hope I explained this ok. Good luck. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/thumb.gif

Thanks, that's a great explanation! Last time I used the bowgun powder on those things, I think they're Bandersnatches and also the zombie doctor. Looks like I'll be conserving them this time.. I am too trigger happy for that game. :D

26-07-05, 18:10
Hehe. :D I hate those Bandersnatches things. The best ammo to use is normal bowgun arrows and handgun bullets. Good luck and if you need anymore help just ask. Oh and the mutilated Steve battle just keep running and everytime he hits you your health will be on caution so take health sprays and herds. I would say take 5 healing items with you before you enter this room that should be enough ;)

26-07-05, 18:26
Looking at the screenshots, he reminds me loads of Chris Redfield. Theres alot of simarality between the Resident Evil Remake Chris, and this Chris. Ill be glad if hes back.

26-07-05, 19:19
I guess he's a brand new character

27-07-05, 05:14
I love RE!! Can't wait to put my hands on RE5! The video didn't look like it was in-game though.

27-07-05, 05:17
Wow, already number 5? I have yet to finish number 2! :eek:

27-07-05, 17:11
It might be that chris just had an
"extreme make-over". http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

I don't know if anyone has heard this yet but in the latest issue of PSW magazine (UK) they say that the main character in RE5 is Chris Redfield. This is great news because Claire will be in it (I hope). I wonder what she will look like with this new fantastic graphics engine. But one thing in this short article is strange. They say that this game is exclusive to PS2. RE5 is for PS3 and Xbox360. It's probably just a typo.
