Resident Evil Revelations PS4 & Xbox One Release Date Moved up to August 29

August 1, 2017Written by Jason Dunning

Moving up the release date by two days, Capcom announced today that Resident Evil Revelations is now coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on August 29 in North America and Europe. Priced at $19.99 USD, it will be available both physically and digitally.

By pre-ordering Revelations through the PlayStation Store, you’ll receive this dynamic theme:

Along with including all DLC as unlockable rewards, Revelations comes with a 1080p resolution, improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement, four control schemes “based on control types from across the entire series,” and the newly remixed The Ghost Ship: Chaos stage with more powerful weapons and different enemy placements:

Set aboard a ship adrift in the Mediterranean Sea, the story of Resident Evil Revelations initially follows BSAA agent Jill Valentine, former S.T.A.R.S. agent and Raccoon City survivor, in her search for her fellow agents Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat. Joined by Parker Luciani, the duo soon finds out that they’re in far over their heads, becoming entangled in a grand story of betrayal and revenge. The horror has only just begun, as strange bio-weapons start to worm their way throughout the ship, turning Jill and Parker’s rescue mission into a fight for survival. You’ll have to use every weapon and tool at your disposal, including the Genesis Scanner, which grants helpful items by gathering combat data on bioweapons, to survive this nightmare.

Experience a story set between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 from the perspective of multiple playable characters, hunt for weapons and resources to help you survive, and uncover the truth behind the destruction of the floating city Terragrigia. No need to binge on the story, though, as helpful recaps at the beginning of each new chapter will ensure you never lose your place in the story after gripping cliffhangers.

There’s more to Revelations than the story mode, though – Raid Mode delivers countless hours of extra content, sending players through familiar locales from the game’s story with increasingly challenging enemies. Rank up and unlock new weapons and parts as you complete stages, earning powerful gear and combining weapons and parts that fit your play style. Go for the high score or the fastest times either solo or with a friend in online co-op, and unlock new weapon parts, abilities, and costumes for your favorite character to customize your experience even further. For veteran Raid Mode players, a newly remixed stage called The Ghost Ship: Chaos has been added to push you and your characters to the limit against powerful enemies and intense encounters. If you have what it takes to survive, however, you may win even more powerful weapons and rewards!

Nintendo Switch versions of Revelations and Revelations 2 will be available in late 2017.
