resident-evil-shevaGreat news, fellow PC gamers! Capcom has announced the release date for the PC version of Resident Evil 5, plus incredible plans to deliver the game in 3D! Even more, just to make sure that everybody has a computer strong enough for the job, Capcom has also released a benchmark program that can be downloaded following a link I will provide below.

But first let me tell you that Resident Evil 5 for PC will be released on September 15 in North America and September 18 in Europe. We will all be able to experience “stereoscopic 3D out of screen effects” using the GeForce 3D Vision technology from Nvidia, meaning that we’ll basically turn our rooms into a real world of Kijuju!

If that’s not enough, here’s what Capcom promise to PC buyers of Resident Evil 5: “infected Majini coming at players from every angle, dust flying in and out of screen and the scariest bosses to date.” Plus an industry’s first: cut scenes in stereoscopic 3D too!

Even more, the PC version itself will be packed with extra goodies except for the improved visuals: an improved Mercenaries mode and brand new costumes.

As I said in the introduction, Capcom has also released a 3D tech demo with benchmark which can be downloaded by all the PC users right away: just click here and you’ll see it all for yourself!

And, yes, thank you Capcom for turning such a wonderful game like Resident Evil 5 into an even better experience!
