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?

Possible spoilage in the gallery.

So they release a 5-8 hour game compared to the usual 20 hour Resident Evil titles and now they want to charge for the stuff that may give some extra play time? I'm glad the game is getting mixed reviews (first non-spin-off RE game that didn't get a majority of glowing reviews). Hopefully it will sell like crap after all the fanboys buy it in the first week. I REALLY am disgusted by this, as I am an RE fanboy and had the game paid in full quite a while ago, now.
