RE5 Countdown Ends, Site Launches
Last week, we saw something intriguing over the official Resident Evil site; a mysterious countdown (or "countup") that hopefully indicated more information and details. Well, if you check now, the Resident Evil 5 site has been officially unveiled, and with it, we get video, gallery, and downloads for wallpapers and buddy icons.
But perhaps most important is the addition of a brand new trailer. The site includes the teaser we've already seen (Video 1), but the second is most certainly fresh (it says "New" right next to it), and it will start playing immediately when you click the selection. There's plenty to be excited about, because as expected, the game looks both dark, terrifying, and completely unforgiving. There are also 21 screenshots available for your perusal in the gallery, and you can read through the "About" section if you're still unfamiliar with RE5. Of course, we don't really see how that's possible if you're a survival/horror fan, and there's almost more hype and PR than info, but...well, we're talking about RE5. The more stuff we have, the better.
We expect the site to be updated on a consistent basis until the game releases some time later this year. We were hoping to have a release date by now, but with the launch of the official site, we believe that announcement isn't far off...
