Every once and a while we get a nice surprise announcement. Today that comes from this GamesRadar preview of Resident Evil 5. So what's the surprise? How about the fact that a franchise that has been traditionally single player and about lone survival will add full featured cooperative play! Yup - drop-in/drop-out support, full integration of the 2nd character into the story, and all playable online with the AI taking over if your buddy runs away from the game in terror.
