Resident Evil: Revelations brings all the fear from the handheld version of the game to Wii U, enhanced with high quality HD visuals, improved lighting effects and an immersive sound experience, as well additional content for the console version including a terrifying new enemy and an extra difficulty mode.
This critically acclaimed survival horror title takes you back to the events that took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, unleashing the truth about the T-Abyss virus. starring Resident Evil legends 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. If you survive, you'll head off to 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.
Raid Mode, which sees you take on hordes of enemies across a variety of missions whilst levelling up characters and earning weapon upgrades, also gets a boost in the Wii U version, with improvements including new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series. Raid Mode can be played online in co-op mode or alone in single player.
Resident Evil Revelations also takes full advantage of Residentevil.net, with content available to use once the game launches. You 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.
Shinji Mikami is best known as the creative force behind the Resident Evil series, but his most recent outing was the slick sci-fi shooter Vanquish. Now he's returning to survival horror with new title The Evil Within, publisher Bethesda has revealed. The game, previously known by the codename Project Zwei, will be the first from Mikami's new studio, Tango Gameworks.
Little is known about the gameplay, but a teaser trailer promises something warped and bloody. It opens to the comforting strains of Bach's Air on a G String, before a hand bursts through the window of what looks like a padded cell. Cue the grisly stuff, as we see a mysterious man twisting barbed wire with grungy tools followed by someone with broken glass protruding from their skin, a hulking butcher-like figure wielding a meat hammer, burning flowers and a creature with multiple limbs emerging from a puddle of blood. Iconic scenes and images from western horror hits such as A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser are heavily referenced.
"We're incredibly proud to announce The Evil Within. My team and I are committed to creating an exciting new franchise, providing fans the perfect blend of horror and action," said Mikami, ever the master of understatement.
Expect to find out more about this juicy looking game in the next week. The Evil Within is currently slated for release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and next generation consoles in 2014.
3DS exclusive fright-em-up Resident Evil: Revelations will be making the leap from handheld to console, Capcom has confirmed.
The game was lavished with praise from critics and fans when it launched on Nintendo's 3D platform in January 2012. "Dark, terrifying and brilliantly exciting," said Official Nintendo Magazine UK. "As sure to frighten newcomers as it is to leave fans both pleased and hungry for more," reckoned Pocket Gamer.
In moving away from the 3DS, the game will gain an HD makeover, improved lighting and an all-new soundscape for maximum scares. There will also be a new enemy added to the game, along with an additional difficulty setting. The ridiculously fun co-op Raid mode is also getting spruced up, with new weapons, skills and more playable characters. Hunk, the ever-popular bonus character from Resident Evils past, will make an appearance.
The news won't come as much of a surprise to devoted Resident Evil watchers, since the Xbox 360 Achievements for the game leaked a few weeks ago. At least now we can put a definite date for the terror to begin: May 24th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U.
