Capcom has released a video that gives us our first glimpse at the console and PC port of Resident Evil: Revelations. It shows the character Hunk as he kills what the game calls "the ooze" in Raid Mode. Raid Mode is where players fight through hordes of zombies in isolated challenge maps. It follows a score-attack format and grades players on their performance. Enemies also have unique properties, such as being small, swift or extremely durable. Raid Mode can be played in co-op.
Capcom's Mike Lunn revealed during a campaign walkthrough at Gamespot that the console and PC port of the game will have a new addition in the form of randomised enemy and item placement. "One of the things we've really done to make the game a little bit more scarier the more times you play through it is by randomising the position of enemies and items and all that good stuff, so whenever I walk around this corner next time there could be a guy there. You'll never know," he said.
The survival horror game takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus their respective BSAA partners – Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat.
Randomised enemy placement!
The action begins onboard a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the ‘Queen Zenobia’, where horrors lurk around every corner before players head for the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the horror of Resident Evil Revelations.
According to a press release, Resident Evil Revelations is set to take advantage of Capcom’s online service – Residentevil.net – with content available to users once the game launches. Players can pre-register on the service from January 24 onwards to gain early access to Resident Evil Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.
The game is set to come out on May 24 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PC. In the mean time, check out our review of the latest game in the series – Resident Evil 6 – here.
