Today Capcom announced that Resident Evil Revelations will be released on PS4 and XBox One on August 29th. This is two days earlier than the previously announced release date (and significantly earlier than the first window we got back in March, which indicated a fall time frame).
According to the announcement press release, this is the “best-looking version” of the game to date, featuring 1080p resolution, improved frame rate, increased environmental detail and refined creature animations. All of the DLC released for the original game will also be included as unlockable rewards. The price for both platforms will be $19.99.
The popular raid mode will make a comeback, including “The Ghost Ship: Chaos,” which is a fresh take on the classic stage with more powerful weapons and ways for players to upgrade their equipment. Enemy placement has also been reworked to provide an additional level of challenge.
As a bonus, Capcom made four controller schemes based on control types from other games of the series available in this new version of the title, providing a more flexible experience able to accommodate each player’s style.
The game will also be released for Nintendo Switch in late 2017, as part of a package which will also include Resident Evil Revelations 2. No specific release date or price has been provided for that.
You can check out a trailer and a few screenshots below, alongside the package for both PS4 and Xbox One, and a look at the PS4 theme that will be included as a bonus for pre-orders on the North American PlayStation Store.
This definitely appears like another step in Capcom’s plans to bring its games to new platforms and expand sales of past games.
