Biohazard France has released a new trailer from the upcoming survival horror title Resident Evil Revelations 2 which is coming to Ps4, Ps3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC later this year. The trailer shows new gameplay from Raid mode, how characters cooperate in the heat of battle, sneaking missions and more. Claire Redfield and Barry Burton lead the cast this time in Resident Evil Revelations 2, and the game itself looks to capitalize on everything that was accomplished in the original Resident Evil Revelations. The most important aspect being that Barry Burton will finally be a playable character for the first time in the history of the franchise.
Many fans were dissatisfied with the later Resident Evil releases of 6, and more importantly 5, as they focused more on an action based combat system rather than creating the thrilling atmospheres that made players jump around in their seats. Resident Evil Revelations, which starred Jill Valentine, got back to the roots of what made the Resident Evil franchise a unique and horrifying gameplay experience. By taking away the multitude of weapons and ammo granted to the player, and then throwing them into an abandoned cruise ship liner infested with monstrosities, Resident Evil Revelations made for a memorable and rather horrifying experience that players yearned for.
The Revelations series bridges the gap between the main numbered games in the franchise and recreates a level of terror that had long been forgotten in the world of Resident Evil. The first Revelations game which was released on 3DS and later upgraded to an HD edition, took place somewhere between the 4th and 5th games, and it explored the new gameplay style of Resident Evil with the old feel of Code Veronica and Resident Evil 3 without the tank controls. Resident Evil Revelations 2 takes place between 5th and 6th games and promises to return to a similar level of horror experienced in the first Revelations game.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 is set to release in digital episodic format on February 24th on PSN and on February 25th on Xbox Live and PC. A physical disc based version is coming to Ps4, Ps3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 on March 17th which will include all 4 main episodes, 2 additional episodes, and more additional content like outfits and Raid Mode characters for the game. Resident Evil Revelations 2 was also announced for PS Vita at Sony’s Playstation Experience however no information about its release is listed on Capcom’s website at this time.
