Claire Redfield Returns in Resident Evil Revelations 2

Our old friend Claire is back for the newest installment of Resident Evil. We haven’t had the pleasure of playing as Claire since the Rockfort Island incident in Resident Evil: Code Veronica. Claire is once again held prisoner on an island along with a woman named Moira Burton. Does that name sound familiar? It should! Moira is the daughter of everyone’s favorite S.T.A.R.S. redhead, Barry Burton.

Taking place between Resident Evil 5 and 6, Claire and Moira must survive a new threat a brand spanking new type of infected enemy known only as the “Afflicted.” Producer Micheteru Okabe stated “[They] may look like zombies, but are in fact something quite different, You’ll have to gamble taking them on up close against keeping your distance and picking them off from afar — or simply avoiding them altogether.” Another type of infected comes to mind here (Las Plagas anyone?).

The campaign will include a single player and co-op function much like Resident Evil 5. The core development team that worked on the first installment on Nintendo’s 3DS will be coming back and a playable demo is expected to be available at this month’s Tokyo Game Show. Capcom has confirmed that this will not be a 3DS exclusive. Expect Revelations 2 to be released for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Windows PC in 2015.
