The updated version of Resident Evil 5 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One launches June 28, Capcom confirmed this morning. The launch date for the new edition had sneaked out over the Xbox One store earlier.

The rerelease includes all the downloadable content for the 2009 game on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, too. That includes the two expansion episodes "Lost in Nightmares" and "Desperate Escape," the Mercenaries United and Versus Modes in multiplayer, plus all the costume packs.

Improved frame rate and 1080p resolution are what will set apart the update from its predecessors. Capcom announced back in February that Resident Evils 4, 5 and 6 were all geting updates for the current console generation, in descending order. Resident Evil 6 launched for PS4 and Xbox One March 29, leaving Resident Evil 4 to come sometime this fall.

Resident Evil 5 for Xbox One and PS4 is $19.99
