An updated list of trophies for Resident Evil 5 on the Playstation 3 revealed five traditional shooter online multiplayer modes for the game.

The new modes listed are: Slayers, Survivors, Team Slayers, Team Survivors and Versus.

The modes are all mentioned in a list of trophies currently unachievable in the game, so it sounds like these modes would come as downloadable content. The game already has a patch out for the Playstation 3 which has to be downloaded before the required game install. It's unclear what the patch does though.

Here's the full breakdown of mode-revealing trophies:

Army of One - Win 30 matches in Slayers.
Eye of the Tiger- Win 30 matches in Survivors.
The Team that slays together - Win 30 matches in Team Slayers.
We Will Survive - Win 30 matces in Team Survivors.
Keep the good times rolling - Chain a 20-defeated combo in Slayers.
It takes two to tango - Chain a 40-defeated combo in Team Slayers.
It's all about the points - Score at least 40,000 points in Survivors.
There is no "I" in team - Score at least 80,000 points in Team Survivors.
Let's get this party started! - Unlock all selectable characters in Versus.
Bring the Pain - Defeat 100 players using physical attacks in Versus.

DISCUSSION

Ugh. Am I the only person really, really disappointed with this sudden, stupid emphasis on multiplayer in Resident Evil? I know co-op is the "cover system" and "player choice" of 2009, but I never ever like multiplayer experiences over a solid single player one.

I'm probably just going to play RE4 again, unless I can hear reviews from people who also are equally indifferent to co-op who played the entire game single player and said it was worth it.
