More Resident Evil Revelations 2 Details Revealed, Game Will Launch as a Weekly Episodic Download

When Resident Evil Revelations 2 launches in early 2015 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC, it will first be sold as weekly episodic content, before being bundle together digitally and at retail after the episodes are complete.

Here’s the details on how they’ll release Resident Evil Revelations 2, keeping in mind that there’s still no firm release date for the full game or the first episode:

Weekly Episodic Download ($5.99 per episode)

  • 4 individual episodes

Complete Season Download ($24.99)

  • All 4 individual episodes plus additional game content (details coming shortly)

Full Retail Disc Version ($39.99)

  • All 4 individual episodes plus additional game content (details coming shortly)
  • Also includes “further gameplay content in addition to the content included in the Complete Season”

Each episode ending with “some kind of cliffhanger that should spur further conversation and speculation,” Capcom revealed more details about the story in Resident Evil Revelations 2:

It’s been quite a few years since we’ve seen Claire Redfield in her own adventure, but early next year she she’ll face all-new dangers and dread in Resident Evil Revelations 2. As some fans may already know, since the Code: Veronica days she’s joined the anti-bioterror organization Terra Save, helping people around the world deal with ongoing bio threats. Revelations 2 begins with Claire welcoming Moira Burton – daughter of Barry! – into Terra Save, but in true RE fashion it’s not long before trouble finds our heroes.

The party is crashed, Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and taken to a mysterious detention center located on an island. They soon encounter demented, writhing enemies called Afflicted roaming the halls of this abandoned facility, and have to team up to survive. The real question is, who brought them here? And… why?

Are you going to buy each episode individually? Or just wait for the full season?
