Resident Evil 1.5 Beta Released: Gameplay Included

re 1.5

Resident Evil history has been made with the release of a public beta for Resident Evil 5. Naturally, I couldn’t wait and I jumped into the game to see the new environments this unique version of Resident Evil had to bring.

Of course the version I am playing is a very early build of the game, so you can imagine I encountered quite a few issues. However, the devs actually added a debug menu to help you out. You can hover over items and press triangle on them to give yourself ammo. Furthermore, if you get stuck hit select on the debug menu then hit triangle over the level to skip to the next area. As you can see in the video I am not aware of this. So, take this playthrough as what you can do with a vanilla experience until you run into bugs or areas which require the use of the cheats to either give you ammo or go to the next area.

You need to use some sort of emulator or modded PlayStation to play the game. I used ePSXe 1.8 so your experience may vary if you use another emulator or play the game by other methods. However, it is important to note that the developers have a better version on hand and certain bugs experienced in this video have been fixed, but that build is not available to the public at the time this time.

Here is a developers commentary if you are interested on how this was accomplished:
