While the entire Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition won't be out until March 9, the first bit of content is now available for download off Xbox LIVE. This includes the first downloadable episode, "Lost in Nightmares," and additional Mercenaries Reunion updates.
As previously stated, players will be taking on the roles of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine, during their years as B.S.A.A. agents, tracking Ozwell E. Spencer in his swanky mansion. While searching for the man who fathered Umbrella, they figure out Wesker is one massive douche.
In addition to the prequel chapter, Excella Gionne -- the Tricell CEO who turned into a tentacle monster -- will be added as a playable character in Mercenaries Reunion. If you're not a fan of her, try Barry Burton. For those sporting a poor memory, Barry was Jill's weapons supplier in the first Resident Evil. Too bad he doesn't show up in the main game as a merchant... That'd be awesome (and somewhat hilarious).
The second episode, "Desperate Escape," will be available March 3, shortly before the physical copy (Gold Edition) is actually out. The currently available DLC will be hitting PSN tomorrow, so keep your shirts on.
