Sequel hits North America and Europe in early 2015
Capcom recently made Resident Evil: Revelations 2 official, and earlier today we got a follow-up with more details on the upcoming sequel. Revelations 2 will be split across four episodes to be released weekly starting in early 2015.
In a manner similar to the way the first Revelations had its own system of chapters, Revelations 2 promises that each will be packed with "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."
Weekly episodes will be priced at $5.99 each, and you'll be able to purchase the complete season for $24.99. Following the release of the final episode, a full retail disc version will be available for $39.99. Both that and the complete season will come with additional game content, and Capcom will be back with more details on that soon.
We mentioned some aspects of the story in our previous post. Here's Capcom's synopsis:
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.
