Resident Evil: Revelations 2

Recommended Posts

It looks like this could be a real thing. Apparently these popped up on xbox.com this morning.

There was also a retailer in Russia the other month that had the game listed but then quickly took it down.

 

There were also a bunch of rumours floating around about who would be in the game.

 

There are three returning characters. Two female and one male. Two haven’t been seen in over a decade and one has never had an “in-game” appearance. Guess away. That’s more than enough.”

 

“Regarding the one who doesn’t appear in-game, I should be a little more specific(because I’m sure someone will call me a liar for being too general). They are mentioned in games but are a background character with no “active” appearance yet. It’s not someone from the movies/comics.”

Generally optimistic about this one. RE6 might have been total garbage, but RE:R was surprisingly good. While it was far from perfect, it laid a pretty solid foundation for something great.

 

There's a lot of potential for them to build on top of what they did with the original, especially after RE6's horrendous backlash. More focus on exploration, puzzles, survival horror and less on shooting action? Here's hoping :)

I enjoyed the first one, at least at the start. By the end though the game had turned into a corridor shooter, with wave after wave of Hunters being thrown at you.

 

Hopefully we will finally get to play as Claire again! I wouldn't mind seeing Billy return either.

So... Billy and/or Rebecca plus hopefully Claire paired with either of those two - an all-female Resi cast would be interesting ;) - plus an unknown character who has never appeared in any of the games thus far.

 

I'm stumped... have any of the characters ever referenced family members who we haven't seen but could make them a likely candidate?

I saw this earlier, if it's true, then awesome news! Perhaps Capcom are gearing up to show the game off at TGS? Makes sense, considering the timing...

I'm stumped as well. Maybe one of Barry's kids! :D

Yeah Revelations started off well, but went downhill.

 

I wonder if Revelations will continue the story of the original Resi characters, and Capcom will reboot the series with new ones?

 

I'd love Claire to get her own game like Leon did though. Or partner up with Leon again.

Did you play the Co-op mode?

 

I played that loads with Welsh & Mokong on the 3DS, both times using one of the COD games on the Wii U for voice chat. :shakehead

 

Great fun.

Yeah, I thought it was alright but it didn't really hook me. Probably because there was no way to communicate with people.

I love Revelations so I'm very much looking forward to this. I did go through a moment where I didn't like it but then that went away! :D

 

Unrelated, can someone help me with Separate Ways on Resident Evil 4 on the Xbox 360? I'm stuck on Saddler and he keeps on slapping me with that massive penis-looking tentacle! How the fuck do I beat him?!

PC it is for me then (assuming that it turns out good). Shame, would've loved it on Wii U but alas...

That's it then. No more wondering should I buy a PS4. It's happening. Revelations has been my favourite RE since 5 (yes, I loved RE5, even though most people on here didn't...), so this is a game I'd want day 1.

 

Online co-op would be sweet too! Right @Mike1988uk?! ;)

Meh, fair enough then. :D

 

Still that's two weeks away, it makes sense to unveil it there but I really want to see footage of it so I can form an opinion on what it's probably going to be like... :heh:

 

 

...and then find out that I'm completely wrong when the game is released. :indeed:

 

Ah well, the weeks will fly be I'm sure. : peace:

If you are going to boycott every 3rd party developer who doesn't put games on the Wii U then you're not gonna have much to play.

 

You have a PS4 sitting there and you aren't going to buy games for it? I would have to say that you're the one that's losing.

Yeah I'm sure the people at Capcom will be sobbing into their pillows at the thought of one lost sale.

 

I'm glad their isn't a 3DS version, I'd rather not have the game held back in any way and as for the Wii U well it would sell like shit on the console just like the last one did so I don't really blame Capcom or any other third party for not releasing titles on the console.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing it in action. I assume it'll be at TGS.

I can understand why it should be on the 3DS but the Wii U? Come on, from what I've read, the sales on that format were atrocious.

 

Also, I've mentioned this to you before. Comments like "no buy Capcom you lose" come across very childish. As HoT said, you are the one losing out by refusing to buy it just because it isn't coming out for your beloved Wii U.

I was right!!

 

The link has magazine scans, so I'm not sure if it's okay to post the link, but Push-Start is getting this info from Gamesmaster Magazine.

 

Earlier this morning my issue of the November Gamesmaster Magazine turned up in the post and with it were some exciting details for the recently announced Resident Evil: Revelations 2, set for release early 2015 for the PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

 

Many of the details revealed include the return of Claire Redfield, the daughter of Barry Burton, plot and enemy details and much more. This information was revealed when Gamesmaster sat down with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 producer Michiteru Okabe.

 

I will list some of those exciting details below, but if you want to read the article in full, then you can pick up the November issue of Gamesmaster Magazine. I have also taken some images direct from the magazine, for which you can find below.

 

Claire Redfield will return as the playable lead and it is said that “In the time since we last saw her (Claire), she’s grown to be a seasoned veteran.”

 

Claire will be joined throughout the campaign with Moira Burton, daughter of the legendary Barry Burton.

 

The campaign will be playable in co-op or singleplayer.

 

When playing as Claire, her style will be more combat focused. Whereas Moira will be supplying Claire with health herbs, provided the flashlight and general support.

 

Claire will be the only player death that will result in a Game Over, one of Moira’s key roles will be to help keep Claire alive (though Claire can obviously heal herself).

 

The story will take place on an abandoned island detention facility.

 

The campaign will begin with Claire and Moira awakening after being abducted.

 

The events will take place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6.

 

Gameplay will be much more Survival Horror orientated (much like the first Resident Evil: Revelations), bringing the series back to its roots with less over the top action, unlike Resident Evil 5 and 6.

 

Fan feedback has played a part in the development of Resident Evil: Revelations 2.

Producer Okabe said that “The project has been finding the line between listening to fan feedback and also doing something different to confound expectations.”

 

Okabe also said that “I want this to be both a game that doesn’t lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series.” He also added that “Achieving that lofty goal by bringing together past and future will make this an itchy-tasty prospect indeed.”

 

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will feature a new “Afflicted” enemy type, which “may look like zombies, but are in fact something quite different.”

 

The Afflicted enemy will be both fast and able to deal heavy damage to the player. It is also said that they will force the player to decide whether to take them head-on, sneak up using stealth and applying a take-down or the player can run for the hills and “preserve ammo”.

 

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will run at 1080p and 60fps (for the PC and new gen versions at least).
