Capcom recently confirmed that Resident Evil: Revelations will release at retail for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC and Nintendo’s Wii U console across North America and Europe. Since this announcement the publisher has revealed that the title will also be available to download digitally from the same dates on PlayStation 3 and Windows PC, with details on digital versions for Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s Wii U console to follow.
Complete with high-definition (HD) visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience, the fear that was originally brought to players in Resident Evil: Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS returns redefined for home consoles. Furthermore, the home console version will deliver additional content including a terrifying new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. Raid Mode, which was first introduced to the series in the original version of Resident Evil: Revelations, sees gamers play online in co-operative mode or alone in single player, taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst levelling up characters and earning weapon upgrades.
The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 and reveals the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil: Revelations features series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus respective BSAA partners – Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. The action begins on board a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the ‘Queen Zenobia’, where horrors lurk around every corner, before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil: Revelations.
Resident Evil: Revelations will take full advantage of Residentevil.net with content available to users once the game launches.
