Resident Evil 5 Versus DLC available April 7 [update]

According to a recent Capcom press release, the "Versus" add-on for Resident Evil 5 will be available on Xbox Live and PSN this week. Available starting Tuesday, April 7 on Xbox Live [and PSN], the DLC pack will cost $4.99 (400) and will add two new online modes: Slayers and Survivors. In Slayers, players will team up to go against Majinji, while in Survivors, players will have to run-stop-gun against each other. Both modes will support 1v1 and 2v2 play.

The "Versus" add-on has been largely criticized for its close proximity to the game's original release, with some believing these online modes should have been included on the disc. Capcom has defended the pricing, calling the DLC "above and beyond the initial scope" of RE5.
