New Plot, Character and Pricing Details for Resident Evil Revelations 2 Revealed
During the “World of Capcom” panel at NYCC 2014, Capcom divulged a bit more about upcoming sequel Resident Evil Revelations 2, coming out early 2015.
Claire Redfield and newcomer Moire Burton are the protagonists in this title. Currently Claire is working for anti-bioterrorism organization TerraSave but is abducted (along with Moire) and imprisoned on a mysterious and isolated island and must figure out a way to escape. Of course, something else is lurking on that island as well….
Just as with the first Revelations, Revelations 2 will be returning the game to its full-on horror roots, with methodical and creepy explorable being the key mechanic instead of the action focus that recent titles used.
The game will be episodic with four episodes in all. Each episode will provide exclusive content for RAID mode and more information on this feature will be revealed later. Players have a choice to purchase each episode separately for 5.99 each, pay 24.99 for all four or pay 39.99 for the episodes plus all bonus content (to be revealed at a later date) on a physical disc.
