... for Resident Evil: Revelations 2. [Via.]
As if we needed another reason to be pumped for Resident Evil: Revelations 2, UK gaming magazine GamesMaster has offered quite a few more that should go a long way in pleasing longtime fans of the series. GamesMaster had the chance to sit down with Revelations 2 producer Michiteru Okabeto for a feature that will appear in their November issue.
Last week, we noticed some similarities between the prison island that serves as the setting for Revelations 2 and Rockfort Island from Code: Veronica.
We still don’t have closure on that, but even if they aren’t the same island there’s still going to be some Code: Veronica in the game. According to GamesMaster, Revelations 2 will star Claire Redfield as the lead. Apparently, Claire has become a “seasoned veteran” since we last saw her. It will also feature Moira Burton, the daughter of gun aficionado Barry Burton, in a supporting role.
The feature also confirms that Revelations 2 will take place between the events in Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, and it will feature single-player and co-op. The first Revelations had both too, but the co-op was restricted to its Raid Mode. If the co-op extends to the campaign, I hope Capcom takes inspiration from Dead Space 3, which smartly didn’t burden players with an AI companion if they chose to go it alone.
The issue also touched on the game’s enemies, called the “Afflicted”. It sounds like Revelations 2 will continue the series’ trend of introducing another twist on the classic zombie type with each new game. Hopefully they’ll be as terrifying as the stuff the T-Abyss virus created. Below you’ll find our first look at what looks like a basic baddie below (see pic #2 above).
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 hits PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015.
