Resident Evil 5 was released in 2009 and currently has a “particularly positive” review on Steam. Game studio Capcom has released the game’s first update on Steam in six years.
The updates are as follows:
Games for Windows Live support removed
Supports local split-screen cooperation
Fixed some other minor bugs
Microsoft launched Games for Windows Live in an attempt to become a rival to Valve’s Steam. But Microsoft’s efforts were unsuccessful and it shut down the platform in 2014.
Resident Evil 5 is available on Steam, but requires users to download Games for Windows Live. Capkaine wants people who play games on Microsoft services to keep their saved game stats and achievements and use them on the Steam version.
The update also brings back local split-screen collaboration. “The removal of Game for Windows Live and the addition of local two-player co-op is a great update,” players said. “Thanks to Capcom for supporting this game.”
