Capcom has revealed a number of new details for the upcoming Resident Evil Revelations 2 including that fan favorite and classic S.T.A.R.S. member Barry Burton will be returning as a playable character in the game. Check out the new trailer below to see how Burton fits into the episodic narrative!
Headed for the remote prison island in search of his missing daughter, Moira Burton, Barry meets brand new character Natalia Korda, a little girl who has a strange power that allows her to sense enemies and hidden items. Using this skill alongside Barry’s proven combat abilities, players will need to alternate between the two to survive the mysterious island and find Moira.
Each episode in Resident Evil Revelations 2 includes Raid mode content and two full playable scenarios focused on the previously-announced Claire and Moira campaign and the newly-confirmed Barry and Natalia storyline. Barry and Natalia will need to uncover clues as they fight to survive and their journey will lead them to terrifying encounters with two brand new enemies: The Rotten and The Revenant. The Rotten have bones that are visible through their bodies and stop at nothing to hunt down the living, and the horrific Revenant are formed from parts of human beings sewn together.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 will release as digital episodes at $5.99 each with episode 1 debuting February 17 on the PlayStation store and February 18 on Xbox and PC. Episodes 2, 3 and 4 will follow on a weekly release pattern. In addition, a full retail box set will debut in March featuring all four episodes as well as to two additional spin-off episodes, alternate costumes for the characters, and several new characters for RAID mode.
