Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be opting for an episodic experience, the developer announced today alongside new screenshots of Claire Redfield and her friends.
The campaign will be broken into four episodes that will come out at weekly intervals. According to the press release, each one will contain "hours" of gameplay and will take of its serialised format by using "dramatic cliffhangers".
Each of the four episodes will feature hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers that will leave players fully engrossed and anticipating the next twist in the gripping horror story. A digital download option of the Complete Season will also be available to ensure fans can get each episode as it rolls out, and a retail disc version will arrive following the final episode. Both the disc version and the Complete Season will include additional game content, which will be detailed in the coming weeks and months. With the variety of options available, Resident Evil fans will have more choices available to them than ever before.
Capcom has revealed that the season pass will cost USD$24.99 and individual episodes USD$5.99. The retail version will cost USD$39.99, but as ever with American prices the Australian cost will likely be considerably more than just a straight dollar conversion.
Revelations 2 doesn't have a release date yet, but will be out in ‘early 2015′ on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
