Resident Evil: Revelations was very well-received when the game made its debut on 3DS in 2012, but Capcom doesn’t want the title’s audience to be limited to Nintendo’s handheld and has just announced that the game will be heading to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC in May!
Arriving in North America on May 21st and in Europe and the UK on May 24th (with digital versions available on PC and PS3 at launch, too), Resident Evil: Revelations has been given the high definition overhaul for its new platforms with enhanced lighting effects and “an immersive sound experience” promised, too.
New content is also promised for the console and PC versions of Revelations, with a new enemy and an extra difficult mode, as well as improvements to the game’s ‘Raid’ mode on the cards with new weapons and skills sets, and the chance to play as the series’ ‘Hunk’ character (amongst others).
Resident Evil: Revelations will also take advantage of the social and challenge features of ResidentEvil.net, with online events tied to the service to be revealed closer to May. You can pre-register on the site from January 24th to gain early access to Revelations-themed content, though, in anticipation of the game’s launch.
What’s Resident Evil: Revelations all about? Here’s a quick story synopsis:
“[Revelations] 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.
“The action begins on board 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.”
