Capcom's Resident Evil series set the standard for a generation of horror video games -- so it's no surprise that the company is celebrating the franchise's 20th anniversary by selling some of its greatest hits again. In reverse order. Starting with Resident Evil 6 back in March, Capcom has been counting backwards to the game that redefined the series: Resident Evil 4. That coveted release is still awhile out, but if you need a zombie fix right now, there are options. At the end of June, Resident Evil 5 will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

If you can't remember what made this entry in the series special, it can be summed up in one word: multiplayer. Resident Evil 5 suffered mixed reviews for theming, pacing and an failure to balance action and horror, but it was the first entry in the series to introduce local co-op play. It's not a perfect game, but it builds on the combat system that made Resident Evil 4 such a hit. If you've got a friend and want some action, it's worth a look. Plus, the PS4 and Xbox One release comes with all of the original game's add-on content. Interested? The digital release will set you back $20 on June 28th. Looking for a physical disc to collect? You'll have to wait until June 12th -- but at least it won't cost you anything extra. Check out Capcom's official release at the source link below for more details.
