Resident Evil: Revelations 2 Details Emerge, Set on Abandoned Island

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Claire In an interview with Games Master Magazine, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 producer Michiteru Okabe revealed some details about the third-person survival horror game, revealing its setting, main characters and relative difficulty. First off, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 takes place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Instead of playing as the same protagonists from the first Revelations, players control Claire Redfield as the main lead, with Moira Burton -- daughter of the legendary Barry Burton -- joining her throughout the campaign. You can go through the main story either by yourself (Moira is controlled by A.I.) or with a friend in a two-player co-op fashion. Like in the first Resident Evil games, each heroine has her own perks. Claire is combat-focused, while Moira plays a more ancillary role by providing health herbs, a flashlight and other general support. As a result of this setup, the game only ends when Claire dies. RELATED STORY: Watch Resident Evil: Revelations 2's announcement trailer Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is set in a detention facility on an abandoned island, with the game starting off with Claire and Moira waking up to realize that they have been kidnapped. The adventure that follows has them face off against nightmarish creatures, including a new ‘afflicted’ enemy type that “may look like a zombie, but is in fact something quite different.” "I want this to be both a game that doesn’t lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series," Okabe said. "Achieving that lofty goal by bringing together past and future will make this an itchy-tasty prospect indeed." The afflicted are said to be both fast and heavy-hitting, often forcing the player to make the difficult decision of confronting them head-on, sneaking up on them, or running away. Ammo and other resources will be very limited, so you have to choose your actions wisely. Resident Evil: Revelations 2 comes out in early 2015 on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. It will run in 1080p and at 60 frames-per-second on the current-generation consoles and PC.
