Five years after the events of Resident Evil 4, Chris Redfield, now a member of the fictional Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance, is dispatched to Kijuju in Africa. He and his new partner Sheva Alomar are tasked with apprehending Ricardo Irving before he can sell a bio-organic weapon (BOW) on the black market. When they arrive, they discover that the locals have been infected by the parasites Las Plagas (those infected are called “Majini”) and the BSAA Alpha Team have been killed. Redfield and Alomar are rescued by BSAA’s Delta Team, which includes Alomar’s mentor Josh Stone.
Gold Edition includes “Lost in Nightmares” and another campaign-expansion episode, “Desperate Escape”, where players control Josh Stone and Jill Valentine as they assist Redfield and Alomar. The edition also includes the previously released Versus mode, four new costumes and an alternate Mercenaries mode with eight new playable characters, new items and maps. Like Alternative Edition, Gold Edition supports the PlayStation Move accessory
