Capcom today confirmed that a new multiplayer mode will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Resident Evil 5 in a few weeks.
The Versus mode will cost $5 on the Playstation Network and 400 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360 and pits players against each other in a contest of survival, according to Capcom.
Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer's Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. In Survivor's Rule, players hunt the most dangerous game, each other! Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles.
So multiplayer shooter action in a Resident Evil game confirmed. What do you think? Too close to the game's release to charge for it?

Update: Capcom just contacted us to say there was an error on the pricing and that the PS3 version will actually be $5.
