Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be delivered episodically

New, 18 comments

The episodic gaming model appears to fallen out of favor with practically every company that isn't Telltale, but Capcom is giving it a shot with an upcoming entry in one of their biggest franchises. Resident Evil Revelations 2 (a sequel to the 3DS original) will be delivered in four weekly chunks when it arrives on PlayStation 3 and 4, Xbox One and 360 and PC early next year.

Weekly episodes will run you $5.99 per episode, but you can pre-purchase all four for $24.99 and save a whole dollar pay a dollar more (Update: Sorry that we miscalculated that before. The pre-purchase is more expensive because you receive additional content.) If you want to wait for a disc, Capcom will sell you one after the series concludes for $40 with some as-yet-undisclosed bonus content (presumably just to keep GameStop happy?).

Revelations 2 picks up between Resident Evil 5 and 6 with the story of Claire Redfield, who's now working with an anti-bioterrorism force called Terra Save with Moira Burton (yep, she's Barry's daughter). The pair are stolen away to a mysterious island and ... well, you know. Evil happens. We've got the first trailer above if you want a better idea of what you'll be getting into.
