Survival Horror Returns with the Release of Resident Evil Revelations 2
Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, has confirmed that the full retail version of Resident Evil® Revelations 2 is available in stores across North America beginning today and across Europe from March 20, for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC. The $39.99 MSRP retail version of Resident Evil Revelations 2 includes all four core episodes and Raid Mode content, in addition to two “spin-off” episodes, two extra Raid Mode characters, four alternate character costumes, and a bonus Raid Mode “Throwback Map Pack.” Also recently confirmed, online co-op for Raid Mode on all platforms is currently planned to be available on March 31 via a free software update.
The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favorite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return. Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil® games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organization Terra Save. She and Moira Burton are attending a company party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office, capture Claire and Moira and take them to a dark and abandoned detention facility on a mysterious island. Headed for the remote island in search of his missing daughter, Barry Burton meets brand new character Natalia Korda, a little girl who has a strange power that allows her to sense enemies and hidden items. Using this skill alongside Barry’s proven combat abilities, players will need to alternate between the two to survive the mysterious island and find Moira. With terrifying enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style.
Evolving the episodic chapter set-up of the original Resident Evil® Revelations, Resident Evil Revelations 2 initially released as a weekly series of four episodic downloads beginning on February 24, 2015. A full digital download option of the Complete Season is currently available to ensure fans can get access to all individual episodes now.
