The entire Resident Evil 5 campaign supports two player, drop-in/drop-out co-op either locally (i.e., couch co-op), or online. Co-op is also supported in the story DLC, "Lost in Nightmares" and "Desperate Escape." Additionally, two player local or online co-op is supported in the "Mercenaries United" mode.
Resident Evil writes a chilling new chapter as the Umbrella Corporation's bioweapons have fallen into the hands of rogue leaders. Play as Chris Redfield in a remote desert colony overrun by a new breed of evil. With hordes of flesh-eating beings ready to make you their next snack, escape may be the best way to survive. Environments play an increased role, with horrors possibly lurking in every alcove or behind every shadow. New lighting effects will make you wonder - was that movement, or just an illusion? Good thing you're not alone. A new focus on co-op play teams you with a zombie-destroying sidekick Sheva, who changes the way RE is played.
The Xbox One version of the game includes all previously released DLC (Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape story expansions, Versus mode, extra figures, and 4 costumes), and the previously PC-exclusive No Mercy mode, as well as the new mode “The Mercenaries United” which combines The Mercenaries and The Mercenaries Reunion.
