Gameplayer has previewed next years blockbuster release from Capcom, Resident Evil 5. It includes the latest information just leaked out of Japan.
"RE5 will include an artificial iris effect, whereby if you enter a building from outside it will take a couple of seconds for your 'eyes' to get used to the light levels. Capcom is confident that this will still make dark places scary and it may even make players think twice about charging into shadowed areas. In this way, an inherent fear of darkness is still maintained – but it's in contrast to the brightly lit area, and we think this is a pretty cool design mechanic."
