Resident Evil 5's Mercenaries mode patched for online play

  • Posted March 9th, 2009 at 17:26 EDT by Eric Blattberg

When Resident Evil 5's Mercenaries mode was unveiled last week, it appeared that it would be a solely offline experience. Luckily, that has changed.

IGN reports that an update is already available on the Xbox 360 that will allow players to partake in online cooperative 'Mercenaries' play. The outlet expects that a similar update will be available on the PS3 prior to the launch of the game in North America.

Mercenaries is a timed mode where players must survive while decimating hordes of angry, infected villagers. The better you do, the higher your score. It's a hectic, fast-paced addition to a game already packed to the brim with content.
