The biggest game to come out in Australia this week is without a doubt Resident Evil 5 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game follows the story of Chris Redfield as he investigates a viral outbreak in the fictitious African nation of Kijuju, with the help of a local operative called Shiva Alomar. Shiny new graphics aside, you can recruit a second player to control Alomar and blast through the campaign cooperatively, but don't worry, you can still play it solo. Be sure to keep checking back for all of the latest RE5 information in our launch centre before the game's release this Thursday.
After being rescued from development limbo by Ubisoft, World in Conflict: Soviet Assault is finally ready to deploy. Soviet Assault introduces six new missions from the side of the aggressors. To go along with the new missions, white phosphorus bombs have been introduced as a new tactical aid. World in Conflict: Soviet Assault will be available as a stand-alone product, or bundled with the original World in Conflict.
The final game worthy of mention this week is Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box for the PC. Though it doesn't bring anything new to the table, The Ultimate Box combines all of the downloadable content that has been released along with the original retail game from 2008 in one neat package for the PC. Be sure to keep an eye out for Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box when it comes out later this week.
