Albert Wesker is the main antagonist of Resident Evil 5 game. Chris Redfield got information that Ricardo's deal is in oilfields of Marshlands.

Albert Wesker and Excella Gionne wanted to release missiles of Uroboros Virus across the world. Chris and Sheva tried to chase Excella but was stopped by Albert and Jill. Jill started fighting with Sheva & Chris and they understood that Jill is being controlled by a device on her chest.
Chris and Sheva manages to remove the device and Jill after gaining control on herself said to Chris to follow Wesker. When they started following Albert Wesker, they found Excella Gionne and in hurry Excella drops the case of syringes and manages to escape. Sheva carries some of the syringes with her. After continuing the pursuit of Excella, they found that Albert Wesker has infected Excella with Virus and Excella has been converted into a big-giant monster. Chris and Sheva, were successful in defeating the monster. After this, Jill informs Chris on phone that Albert takes a number of virus syringes everyday in order to have his superhuman speed and strength.
Jill also informs that if the doses will be given in less quantity or more quantity then it will start acting as a poison to Wesker. At last Chris and Sheva found Wesker on Bomber plane. Bomber plane was fully-loaded with missiles of Uroboros virus and Wesker was planning to launch those missiles all over the world. After a long fight, Chris and Sheva were successful in injecting Albert Wesker with extra quantity of virus doses. Still, Albert Wesker tried to escape with Bomber but Bomber plane was destroyed by Chris and Sheva and the plane crashes into a volcano.
