What is Resident Evil: Revelations 2?

Published by Capcom, Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is an episodic survival horror video game. It is the 10 installment of the popular Resident Evil series. More specifically, it is the sequel to the spin off 'Resident Evil: Revelations'. Somewhat surprisingly Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is the first new RE installment since the somewhat controversial Resident Evil 6, which was released to a mixed reception in 2012. But a remastered version of Resident Evil was released earlier this year, to no little fanfare. And Capcom has hinted that Resident Evil 7 is in the works, so this little game seems like something of an oddity. But an exciting oddity (and we like those).

The original Resident Evil: Revelations was released for Nintendo 3DS in early 2012. After positive reaction to that game a high definition version of the game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Wii U and Xbox 360 in 2013.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2: story and characters

The Resident Evil: Revelations 2 story takes place in the timescale between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Each of the four separate episodes will contain a chapter with Barry Burton, and a chapter with Claire Redfield. In the game Barry’s daughter Moira has been kidnapped with Claire. The two are left stranded on a zombie-filled island. And thus the fun begins.
