While we have to hold out a little bit longer for a North American release date, Capcom has announced today that Resident Evil 5 for the PC will ship out in Europe on September 18th.

The PC revision of the survival horror game comes equipped with some extras and improvements over its console cousins — the biggest enhancement being the inclusion of full support for NVIDIA’s new GeForce 3D Vision technology (wireless stereoscopic 3D Vision glasses sold separately):

Fans that pick up the PC version will be the first to experience stereoscopic 3D out of screen effects as their living rooms are transformed into the world of Kijuju.

Infected Majini coming at players from every angle, dust flying in and out of screen and the scariest bosses to date are taken up a notch. Resident Evil 5 PC is a whole new level of fear players will never forget. The game also supports Stereoscopic 3D in all of its cut scenes – an industry first.

RE5 on PC features a new improved Mercenaries mode introducing three times the number of enemies over the console revision, as well as some smart new character costumes. Stay tuned for other release dates soon.
