Experience the Horror Event of the Season with this Brand New Episodic Serial Thriller

SAN MATEO, Calif. — September 10, 2014 — Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, last week confirmed Resident Evil® Revelations 2 is in development 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. Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be available across North America and Europe in Early 2015.

Evolving the episodic chapter set-up of the original Resident Evil® Revelations, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will initially release as a weekly series of episodic downloads. Each of the four episodes will feature hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers that will leave players fully engrossed and anticipating the next twist in the gripping horror story. A digital download option of the Complete Season will also be available to ensure fans can get each episode as it rolls out, and a retail disc version will arrive following the final episode. Both the disc version and the Complete Season will include additional game content, which will be detailed in the coming weeks and months. With the variety of options available, Resident Evil® fans will have more choices available to them than ever before.

The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favorite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return to the horrors that haunted her in the past . Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organisation Terra Save. Moira Burton, new recruit and daughter of Resident Evil legend Barry Burton, is attending her welcome party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office. Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and awaken later to find themselves in a dark and abandoned detention facility. Working together, they must find out who took them and to what sinister end. With the terrifying Afflicted enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style. Will Claire and Moira make it out alive and discover what’s led to them being taken to this remote island? Who else will they come across? A story of twists and turns will have players guessing the next step at every turn.

Fans will be able to share in the experience and participate in the weekly conversation around the drama when it releases early next year. Capcom will be releasing details on how fans can join in and start speculation on the horror event of the season soon. Keep your eyes on the Resident Evil Facebook page and the official website for all of the series chatter as it happens.

In addition to the episodic story mode, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will have additional play modes. More details will be revealed at a later date.

This must be screenshots from the X360 / PS3 version, right?

Sometimes I wonder if Capcom is even trying anymore... oh well, still gonna sell either way as long as it's as good as the first Revelations.

You were almost a Claire and Moira sandwich. :)
Seriously though don't give us anything that we want or anything Capcom. Its bad enough we will never get a Resident Evil 2 REmake, now you are teasing the whole, not seeing Barry Burton properly since the first game, by putting his daughter in a game. Swell.

Can character outfits look any worse?
I bet they are following the same RE5/Revelations scheme.
Resident Evil needs a serious reboot/re-imagining, the controls, the gameplay and story are all outdated now and need a fresh perspective.

I really liked the first Revelations despite low expectations but this doesn't look anything like what I'd like. Capcom is now just like Square Enix.

Moira looks like DmC's Dante. Something tells me Capcom just has none good concept artists left nowadays since most of its art looks either generic or just plain bad. I'd rather make them clear some spot in sales department next time they decide on cutbacks. Cause this is getting kinda ridiculous.
And I totally agree on "serious reboot" comment.

Lets just hope the gameplay and story is good, as the graphics looks sub-par.

Claire looks amazing

I have more hope in this then in RE7, Revelations was the first horror RE after RE3. Only thing I don't like is it's episodic and also clearly using last gen assets.
Commented on 2014-09-10 21:16:51
looks alright. Is this after RE6 or before RE5?

I don't think it's his brain thinking that...

At least looks like the enemies will be more terrifying this time. Not full price RE game from Capcom seems strange. Probably is pretty short or they will cut Raid or any additional modes and sell them later as dlc.

I must be the one who likes it! LOL
I expect it to be better than RE6, which I will admit is not too difficult to achieve.
