Resident Evil 5 will have online co-op

At Microsoft’s E3 conference today, Jun Takeuchi, producer of Resident Evil 5 confirmed that his latest zombie title will feature two-player online co-op so that you can team up with a friend to exterminate the undead hordes.

In the world’s first playable demonstration the second player took the role of Sheva, Chris Redfield’s female companion. So far it appears that the second player can do most of the things that the the first one can. They can pick up items, heal themselves and navigate the environments independantly.

The demo also gave a glimpse of Mr Chainsaw-Wielding Bag-Head!
