Resident Evil Revelations 2 will star Claire Redfield

New, comments

Resident Evil Revelations 2 will feature returning protagonist Claire Redfield along with a new character, Moira Burton  daughter of Resident Evil's Barry Burton, according to GamesMaster (as reported by Push-Start.)

The upcoming release will reportedly include a single-player and co-op campaign with Burton providing back-up to Redfield, who is now a seasoned zombie killer.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 takes place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and 6, and sees both starring characters kidnapped and trapped on an abandoned island prison.

Producer Micheteru Okabe notes that a new undead type known as the Afflicted will be the game's primary enemy.

"[They] may look like zombies, but are in fact something quite different," Okabe said. You'll have to gamble taking them on up close against keeping your distance and picking them off from afar  or simply avoiding them altogether.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is coming to PlayStation 4  and other platforms in early 2015, Capcom producer Masachika Kawata announced at a Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Asia press conference earlier this month.

Revelations 2 is being developed by the core staff members of the previous entry, which hit Nintendo 3DS, Kawata said. The game was announced alongside a live action teaser with the tagline "Evil is watching," but no gameplay footage was shown.

Kawata said Capcom will reveal new information about Resident Evil Revelations 2 soon, and a playable demo will be available at this month's Tokyo Game Show.

In a separate announcement, Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations 2 would also come to PlayStation 3, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015.

The existence of Resident Evil Revelations 2 leaked in August when art and a screenshot of the game showed up on Xbox.com.
