Free copy of Resident Evil 5? Interesting.
Reaction to Resident Evil 6 was ... let's say mixed, if I'm to be polite. Despite this, Capcom is continuing its commitment to bringing games to the PC by making Resident Evil 6 available for pre-purchase on Steam. If you're committed to buying the game, there's some pre-purchase rewards available for you.
It's another case of the more people pre-order, the more rewards are unlocked. Right now, the first reward tier is already reached, so everyone who pre-purchases will get a soundtrack and an artbook. The second tier will be a giftable copy of Resident Evil 5, and the final reward will be the DLC season pass included with your purchase.
Whilst a delayed PC release of a game that's already been available on consoles for months is usually a big annoyance, I feel that in the case of Resident Evil 6, it's maybe been for the best. The reviews are all out and you all have a good idea of what the game is like. Plus, now you have the benefit of knowing that Resident Evil: Revelations is coming soon on PC too.
