Capcom has released Desperate Escape, its second DLC episode for Resident Evil 5 on XBL, and it will be made available tomorrow on PSN.

This is the second major story pack for Resident Evil 5, and pairs Jill Valentine and Josh Stone.

Freed of a mind control device, Jill finds herself awakened by BSAA agent Josh Stone, and they must work together to escape from the Tricell facility in the dark.

Players will fight-off waves of enemies while guiding Jill and Josh as they race to assist Chris and Sheva in a final showdown with that scumbag Albert Wesker.

Also available, are new costumes for use in the RE5 campaign which shows up through game-play and cut scenes.

Costume Pack 2 includes Chris Redfield’s “Heavy Metal” costume and Sheva Alomar in her new “Business” outfit.

The remaining four of eight characters for The Mercenaries Reunion are available if you download both DLC packs Desperate Escape and Lost in Nightmares.

Desperate Escape includes Rebecca Chambers and Josh Stone; while Costume pack 2 not only includes Chris and Sheva’s new costumes for the main storyline, but they are also playable characters in The Mercenaries Reunion.

Each character has their own unique weapon load outs, as they shoot down as many enemies as they can within the time limit.

Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition will be made available on March 9 for $49.99, and will include the original game plus all downloadable content on a single disk for PS3.

For Xbox 360, Gold Edition includes the original RE5 plus a token for all downloadable content.
