The next DLC episode for Resident Evil 5, Desperate Escape, is heading to the PlayStation Network tomorrow. This DLC pairs Jill Valentine and Josh Stone in a new chapter to the RE5 story. The pair will work together to escape the Tricell facility under the darkness of night. You’ll fight unrelenting waves of enemies in heart pumping action, as Jill and Josh race to assist Chris and Sheva in their final bout with Albert Wesker.

You can also pick up new costumes for use in the RE5 campaign. Costumes will be visible during gameplay and cut scenes. Costume Pack 2 will include Chris Redfield’s “Heavy Metal” costume and Sheva Alomar in her new “Business” outfit.

If you pick up both DLC packs, you will get the remaining four of eight characters for The Mercenaries Reunion. Desperate Escape will include Rebecca Chambers and Josh Stone; while Costume pack 2 includes Chris and Sheva’s new costumes for the main storyline, and they will also be playable characters in The Mercenaries Reunion. All characters will have their own unique weapon load outs.
