Capcom has today confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations will release at retail for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Windows PC.
Following months of rumours, Revelations will be releasing across North America on 21 May and Europe on 24 May 2013, and will also be available to download digitally from the same dates on PlayStation 3 for €49.99 and Windows PC for €39.99 with details on digital versions for Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s Wii U console to follow.
We’re incredibly excited by the prospect of play through Revelations again, especially as this version will be packing HD visuals, enhanced lighting effects and an immersive sound experience. We most want to play it on the Wii U as the scanner device will work beautifully with the GamePad. Content wise, the home console version will deliver additional content including a new enemy, extra difficulty mode and improvements to Raid Mode such as new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. If you’re not sure what Raid Mode is, it pits you 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. It’s much better than Mercenaries mode in our opinion.
And if you’re interested, Resident Evil Revelations will take full advantage of Residentevil.net with content available to users once the game launches. You can pre-register on the service from 24 January to gain early access to Resident Evil Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.
