Halloween might be in the books, but the season of survival horror in video gaming is in full swing. The HD remaster of Resident Evil was just launched this week. Next month sees the release of the first digital episode for Resident Evil: Revelations 2. In addition, Capcom has released some new gameplay videos showcasing some more of the nasty beasties and creatures of the new video game. The videos of the Glasp and Revenant creatures are available below.
The Revenant is a walking, undead and multi-limbed mess of ugliness. The Glasp appears to be a new giant zombie insect. In Resident Evil fashion, it spits out messes of its own young out on the player.
The videos actually have some new gameplay footage showing classic character Barry Burton, and the mysterious new character, Natalia Korda. Not much is known about Korda, but she appears to have some extra-sensory abilities, and she was on the guest list at the TerraSave party that was attended by Claire Redfield and Moira Burton. It will be interesting to see if Korda has a connection to game’s female mystery villain, who appears to have a vendetta against Claire Redfield.
Resident Evil Revelations 2, Episode One, will be available as a digital release on February 24 for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Store in North America. Episode One will be available for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 via Xbox Live globally on February 25. Episode One hits Steam Global on the same date. The complete game will be available as a retail disc release for $39.99 on March 10. The disc release will include the Complete Season, along with two bonus episodes, the Raid Mode Throwback Map Pack and Hunk and Wesker as Raid Mode characters.
