Capcom confirmed last week that a follow up to their 2013 HD-version of Resident Evil Revelations will be coming to consoles and PCs for the US and Europe in early 2015.
With an episodic release that players may recall of previous versions, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be phased out in various formats in a progression very suitable for suspenseful gameplay. Four episodes, each replete with the gasps and thrills one would expect of RE notoriety, will be available for weekly digital download at $5.99 each. Once all four installations have been rolled out, the Complete Season with additional game content, will be available digitally for $24.99. A retail version of the Complete Season will simultaneously make its debut for $39.99. The retail version will include the same additional game content found on the the digital version, yet with even more gameplay. Further details about the extra content are soon to be announced.
The game is playable by 1-2 players, with the assistive co-op play mechanic found in past titles. One can switch between Claire and Moira to take over the nimble and threatening "Afflicted" in single player mode with AI, or offline co-op. Along with Moira’s introduction to the story is her ability to blind enemies with her torch before Claire sweeps in to finish them off.
