Capcom has announced that an updated version of Resident Evil 5 will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from June 28.

The re-release will feature an improved frame rate and 1080p resolution. It will also include all previously released DLC, such as the Lost in Nightmare and Desperate Escape story episodes.

Additionally, The Mercenaries United mode will also be included, and all characters will be unlocked from the outset. This is a more arcade shooter experience that tasks players with chaining zombie kills and completing objectives with a time limit.

When Resident Evil 5 was previously released for PC, a more difficult version of Mercenaries called No Mercy was made available. This will be part of the new console re-release.
