Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Revelations 2 will receive an episodic release. There will be four episodes available to purchase, with one episode being released every week over the course of one month.
According to Capcom, players can purchase each episode individually for $5.99/â‚¬5.99, or buy the game's Season Pass, which grants players access to all four episodes, for $24.99/â‚¬24.99. The game is also getting a disc-based version, which is expected to launch after the release of the final episode, and will be available for $39.99/â‚¬39.99. In addition, Capcom has teased that those that purchase either the Season Pass or the physical version of the game will receive bonus content.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 takes place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 and stars Claire Redfield and Barry Burton's daughter Moira Burton. The duo's adventure begins when they are both knocked unconscious and taken away to a mysterious island where they will face terrifying enemies know as Afflicted.
"With the terrifying Afflicted enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style. Will Claire and Moira make it out alive and discover what's led to them being taken to this remote island? Who else will they come across? A story of twists and turns will have players guessing the next step at every turn," says Capcom.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be available for PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC in early 2015.
