Resident Evil 5

You don't have to face fear alone

The world has learned the meaning of terror. A decade after the events of Raccoon City, the evil Umbrella Corporation has been destroyed. But the effects of its horrific creations still linger. Gripped in fear of another biological incident, world governments formed the Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, determined to stem the spread of biological attacks.

Now, Agent Chris Redfield has been sent to Africa to investigate reports of a new, more dangerous outbreak. Joined by his new partner, Sheva Alomar, both must work together to discover what's really happening and stop whoever is continuing Umbrella's evil legacy.

2009 Africa

A car moves across the ever stretching roads of the African continent. The vehicle stops somewhere within the Kijuju Autonomous Region, and a lone male figure steps out. His name is Chris Redfield.

As Chris looks around, a woman approaches him.

"Welcome to Africa. My name is Sheva Alomar."

Chris shakes her hand knowing that he will now have a partner on this mission.

Chris has lost many friends during countless missions. Sometimes he finds himself asking, is it all worth fighting for? It's not a question he knows the answer to. What he does know is that he has been given a mission, and he's going to carry it out. "I've got a job to do, and I'm going to see it through."
