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?
If that sounds a bit like a cliffhanger ending, well… it’s intentional. If you recall, the original Revelations told its story with chapters divided into TV-like episodes (even featuring “Previously in Resident Evil Revelations” bumpers). This storytelling technique continues in Revelations 2, which will debut as four weekly downloadable episodes and then as a physical disc once the saga has unfolded.
*Retail disc version includes further gameplay content in addition to the content included in the Complete Season
Each week will end with some kind of cliffhanger that should spur further conversation and speculation; if you want to stay on top of the latest twist, you’ll want to check out the weekly episodes. But if you’re more interested in an all-in-one experience, there will be a “complete season” digital option and the aforementioned disc for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC.
