The Resident Evil 5 in Pictures

  • Chris demonstrates his dislike for Habitan/Voodoo culture.

  • Like previous games in the series, Resident Evil 5 will do its best to mess your trousers via an assortment of creepy cut-scenes and nail-biting set pieces. (Turn around Chris! They’re behind you!)

  • Resident Evil 5 sees the return of Chris Redfield, the GAP model-cum-S.T.A.R operative who starred in the first game.

  • Chris Redfield showing off his gun(s).

  • We’re not sure who this guy is, but he looks like a stereotypical African warlord. Or possibly a storefront hawker. Either way, he must be stopped.

  • Chris Redfield posing manfully.

  • Controversially, the fifth instalment of Resident Evil takes place in Haiti, and will feature voodoo-afflicted Africans in place of typical zombies.

  • Game over, presumably.

  • The combat will adopt the popular ‘over-the-shoulder’ technique as seen in Resident Evil 4. The close-quarters combat system has also been improved, with a new dodging ability, and a special punching move to scatter hostile crowds.

  • A Haitian mob acting mobbishly.

  • Chris demonstrates his dislike for Habitan/Voodoo culture. In the dark.

  • A victim of Voodoo – where’s Fred Hollows when you need him?

  • One of the staple ingredients of the series has always been the ‘jump scare’, where enemies leap terrifyingly out of the shadows and attempt to bite your head off. Expect Resident Evil 5 to be no different.

  • An iconic zombie shot.

  • Just when you thought it was safe to switch on your console, the next chapter in Survival Horror is almost upon us. The Resident Evil series is finally lurching its way onto next-gen consoles, appearing exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Check out the following slideshow for all the latest screenshots (but lock your doors first!).
