Claire Redfield is back ladies and gentlemen! This time she’s being joined by Moira Burton, the daughter of S.T.A.R.S veteran Barry Burton. Those keeping up on the Resident Evil story will know that after Raccoon City, Claire joined the anti-bioterrorism organisation Terra Save. At her welcome party, both Claire and Moira are kidnapped and awake in an abandoned detention facility- a setting that Claire should be all too familiar with at this point.
Arriving early next year for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 Xbox One and PC, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will take the episodic-like gameplay of its predecessor and now charge for each installment.
Revelations 2 will release initially as a series of weekly episodic downloads. There will also be a Complete Season option so that fans can get each episode as they’re released. Once the game is out in full digitally, it will be released at retail and Capcom says that the retail version will have “further gameplay content in addition to the content included in the Complete Season.”
Each Episode will be priced at $5.99 with the Complete Season package going for $24.99. Finally, the retail version which has even more content will hit store shelves for $39.99.
It sounds like the extra content at retail may not be included in the Complete Season package which would be a swift kick in the butt of those looking to jump into Revelations 2 as each episode is released. We’ve contacted Capcom for clarification and will update this post when we hear something.
Update: Capcom has told us that those who get the Complete Season digitally will receive the extra content. Those who buy the individual episodes will not receive it. That content and additional content will be available to those that purchase the retail disc.
