Resident Evil 5 is one of the more polarizing entries in the series. It continues Chris's journey with a new playable companion, Sheva, because to the first-time inclusion of cooperative play in the series, which allowed players to control each character locally via split-screen play or online. The latter was a feature only for consoles, and the PC was only supported via mods until an update later today.
The PC version of Resident Evil 5 now has a native cooperative split screen.
Resident Evil 5 may not have received the same reputation as Resident Evil 4, but it did try something new, unique in the series to that point — local co-op. A major feature in the 7th console generation: PS3, Xbox 360, and even the Wii, was the ability to play couch co-op games on the console, making it one of the most memorable.
The developers seem to have made two significant changes to the game, both of which are groundbreaking for the game.
Even after the shutting down of Windows Live, the DRM did more harm than good.
However, the highlight here is that the now 14-year-old title now includes local split-screen co-op, making this a great reason to play through the game again if you haven't already.
