Fear Never Grows Old

Resident Evil 5 was first released in 2009.
Similarly, it's been ten years since Chris Redfield's first brush with fear at an old mansion in Raccoon City. Now, in a blistering land far away from home, Agent Redfield must eliminate a new threat and an old nemesis--Albert Wesker.
Traverse areas of blinding light and impenetrable darkness in the first Resident Evil bold enough to bring horror into the daylight. With online and couch co-op, you need not face the fear alone.
Enter Sheva Alomar--a powerful new ally. Together, she and Chris will pit themselves against an incredible enemy to determine which is stronger, their fear or their faith in each other.

Little did he know that a darker force was at play--one that bore a familiar face...
