Recently revealed Resident Evil Revelations 2 will take a page out of Telltale’s book when it releases in early 2015, Capcom has announced.
Instead of going the retail route right away, the spook show’s developers have chosen to do things differently. Their plan of action? To go with a weekly episode motif that is akin to television shows, offering all four instalments for $6 a piece. It’s an interesting idea, which could pay off really well for a game of this ilk, provided that it ends up being much better than Resident Evil 6. Episodes that last for “hours” and intriguing cliffhangers have been hinted at, so here’s hoping.
Capcom has also confirmed its plans for a $25 Season Pass, as well as a $40 disc-based release that will offer extra content. However, details pertaining to said bonuses are unavailable at this time.
Below, you’ll find a synopsis of Resident Evil Revelations 2, which was taken from the game’s latest presser.
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.
