Today, the fine folk of Capcom announced that Resident Evil: Revelations will be hitting PS4 and Xbox One a bit ahead of schedule. Originally poised to release sometime this fall, it will now arrive on August 31st, the tail end of summer…at least in North America, as Europe is still (at the moment) stuck waiting until sometime this fall.
For those that don’t know: Resident Evil: Revelations is a survival horror game that originally made its debut on the ol’ 3DS back in 2012. It then came to PS3, Xbox 360, PC, and Wii U not long after.
The game takes place between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 and follows series’ protagonist Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine as the pair try and stop a bioterroist organization from infection the Earth’s ocean with a rare virus.
The game’s re-release on PS4 and Xbox One will come with all of the game’s DLC and 1080p visuals, as well as more environmental detail and refined creature movements that are said to add a whole new dimension to the game’s terror.
The following story elevator pitch is provided via Capcom:
Chris Redfield goes missing in action during a mission, forcing the BSAA to dispatch Jill Valentine on a search-and-rescue operation. She arrives at her target location to find an extravagant cruise liner floating in the middle of the ocean. Jill makes her way through winding corridors filled with perilous traps and horrifying creatures, and soon finds that she has only just scratched the surface of a horrifying conspiracy.
Resident Evil: Revelations will cost $19.99 USD when it launches on PS4 and Xbox One.
