We're approaching the final months of development for Capcom's next installment into their Award-winning franchise with Resident Evil 5 ready to hit both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 either later this year or 2009, depending on different sources. Capcom, having just wrapped up their latest Gaming convention for upcoming titles, has released a new trailer for the fifth installment and this new trailer focuses on game play looks and feel for leading character Chris Redfield, who is returning to the franchise after a 10 year break.
The end of the new trailer also gives us our first look at the new leading lady who will be helping Chris in his latest adventure against the evils of Umbrella. Check out the new clip below.

Some of the details include some more information on leading character Chris Redfield's return after a 10 year void, where all that we know is that he has been battling Umbrella. The only clues from the new trailer is a badge he's sporting that says "BSAA", which according to the latest article, is a new extralegal organization employing Chris. In addition, the producer has pointed out that other than his trusty gun, Chris will be sporting a survival knife and a sniper rifle. Most of his arsenal will be carried on his back throughout the game, with a new single-button switching method for gamers. Chris will also be carrying a lightsource (flashlight?) in some of the game's darker settings like a cave sequence.
While the plot is still being kept under wraps, the overall concept is described as an "escape from a predicament."
The producer was silent on the enemies except to say that they will be neither Zombies or Ganados (the fodder of RE 4). Also, in some of the latest shots shown, the enemies are now representing multiple races even if the setting is Africa, something which has been brought up by fans after viewing the first trailers for RE5 this past year.
Chris won't be alone. He'll have two ladies around throughout the game, one is a blonde in a long, red dress, someone hinted that may need to escape with the title character at the end. The other lady is a darker skinned beauty who will be carrying her own arsenal and will likely be another ally for Chris.
