Resident Evil Revelations 2 ESRB Rating Reveals New Playable Character, Weapons and Plenty Gore

on November 9, 2014 6:12 PM

The ESRB just published its rating for Capcom’s Resident Evil Revelations 2, and it comes with surprises. The M Rating itself with warnings for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence, Strong Language is not at all shocking, but the description is a lot more interesting:

his is an action-adventure game in which players assume the roles of an imprisoned woman and a father searching for his daughter on an island. Players use pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, shotguns, and knives to kill zombies and mutated creatures. Combat is highlighted by screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and large blood-splatter effects. A handful of enemies are depicted with exposed organs, and one scene depicts an enemy having its hand cut off in slow-motion. Another scene depicts a human character shooting herself in the head with a pistol, resulting in a large splatter of blood. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.

Aside from the mention of the guns we’ll get to use against the abominations on the island, what’s most interesting is the description of the “father searching for his daughter” as a playable character. While his identity is not revealed in the text, the first theory that comes to mind is that the game will let us play Barry Burton, Moira’s father and veteran of the series.

Of course we won’t be sure until Capcom makes an official announcement about it, but the he seems to be the ideal candidate to fit the role, since his daughter is indeed trapped on the island with Claire Redfield.
