Capcom’s critically acclaimed Resident Evil series has redefined horror in videogames, with each new terrifying installment building on the tension, atmosphere and action featured in the previous game. Now SHIELD Android TV owners can experience one of the best games in the series to date, Resident Evil 5 (RE5). Featuring stunningly detailed survival-horror gameplay and visuals, Resident Evil 5 hits Android exclusively on SHIELD Android TV with advanced PC and console caliber graphics only made possible by Tegra X1.
Set five years after the events depicted in Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 (known as Biohazard 5 in Japan) sees the return of series protagonist Chris Redfield who is no longer part of the Raccoon City Police Special Tactics And Rescue Service's (STARS) Alpha team, and is now part of an elite force known as the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA).
At the beginning of Resident Evil 5, Chris is dispatched on a mission to Kijuju, Africa where he and his new partner Sheva Alomar must take down a terrorist before he can unleash a devastating bio-organic weapon. Unfortunately, once they arrive they soon discover that the local inhabitants have been infected by a parasitic virus that has transformed them into murderous creatures known as the Majini.
Unlike some of the more traditional zombies featured in previous Resident Evil games, the enemies in Resident Evil 5 come in all sorts of nightmarish shapes and sizes, sometimes having the ability to transform or even carry guns and explosives. Due to the unpredictable nature of your enemies, it is vital to your survival that you take a more tactical approach when taking them on while learning what their weaknesses are.
Resident Evil 5 also introduces some notable gameplay enhancements to the series including a cover system, which comes in especially handy when fighting RE5’s new firearm wielding enemies. The game also features an all-new shooting system that allows players to carefully aim and shoot at specific targets and enemies.
Resident Evil 5’s new setting and emphasis on action oriented survival-horror gameplay takes the series in a refreshingly bold new direction. Experience one of the best and scariest entries in Capcom’s genre-defining survival-horror series, Resident Evil 5, which is now available to download for $19.99 via Google Play only on SHIELD Android TV.
