Release dates set for Resident Evil: Revelations
In a press release:
"Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations releases tomorrow, May 21st across North America and on May 24th for European territories. Available at retail for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Windows PC and Nintendo’s Wii U™ console, the title will also be available to download digitally starting from today via the PlayStation Network Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam, with a Games On Demand version for the Xbox 360 to follow.
The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, revealing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Featuring series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, the action begins on board a supposedly abandoned cruise ship, the ‘Queen Zenobia,’ then moves to the mainland and the devastated city of Terragrigia. With limited ammo and weapons available, the race is on to survive the terrors that unfold.
Gamers will be able to further their Resident Evil Revelations experience with the release of game add-on content. Weapon upgrades for each of the playable characters will be available to purchase in two separate packs – ‘Resistance Set’ and ‘Enhancement Set’. Each pack containing six upgrades can be purchased for 160 Microsoft Points or $1.99 / €1.99 from June 4th. These will be followed with the release from June 11th of two additional characters for players to face the fear with in Raid Mode’s co-op action - ‘Rachael Ooze’, the infected mutation of the mysterious blonde and a female version of series favourite, Hunk known only as ‘Lady Hunk’. Each character can be purchased for 240 Microsoft Points or $2.99 / €2.99 and will compliment a full roster of existing Raid Mode characters. Finally, weapon upgrades for Jill Valentine, Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat will be available from June 18th and priced individually at 80 Microsoft Points or $0.99/€0.99.
Complete with high quality HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience, the fear that was originally brought to players in Resident Evil Revelations on the Nintendo 3DS system returns redefined for home consoles. Furthermore, the home console version delivers added content that includes terrifying new enemy - the Wall Blister, extra Infernal Mode difficulty level and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the added opportunity to play as Hunk and mysterious blonde Rachael before she becomes infected. Raid Mode, which was first introduced to the series in the original version of Resident Evil Revelations, sees gamers play online in co-op mode or alone in single player, taking on the hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst levelling up characters and earning weapon upgrades."
