It will not only be available on retail disc But it will also be avaialble on digital download for all four platforms, although the digital WiiU and PC versions will come later.
Updates over the 3DS version will include high-definition graphcis, Achievements and Trophies to earn, enhanced lighting effects and more immersive sound, a terrifying new enemy to fight, extra difficulty modes and many improvements to Raid Mode. These include new weapons, new skill sets, Hunk as a playable character and more. Raid More sees players taking on hoards of enemies, and can be played in Single Player or Online.
“The critically acclaimed survival horror title takes players back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5 and reveals the truth about the T-Abyss virus. Resident Evil Revelations features series favourites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, plus 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.”
Resident Evil Revelations will take full advantage of Residentevil.net with content available to users once the game launches. Players can pre-register on the service from January 24th to gain early access to Resident Evil Revelations themed content with further information about online events to be revealed closer to launch.
This is great news. Although Resident Evil: Revelations was a great exclusive for the 3DS, the game deserves to be played by more fans and thus this re-release on additional consoles is definitely welcome. I hope to play the game on 3DS before this new version hits. I actually bought the game last holiday alongside Resident Evil 6: Archives, but I had to sell it to get some cash before I got a change to play it. Sadly.
