today revealed some new information about Resident Evil: Revelations
which launches on May 21 in North America and May 24 across Europe, for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC. Resident Evil newcomer Rachel, who made her debut in the 3DS release of the game, will be joining Hunk as a brand new playable character in Raid Mode. PAX East 2013 attendees will be able to play as both new characters for the first time this weekend in the Capcom booth #948. Resident Evil: Revelations also features two brand new enemies, including the Wall Blister and a surprise new creature that appears in Raid Mode once players have reached a certain level. Screenshots of both are available for download today.
Wii U players will be able to take advantage of the unique features of that system with three different styles of play. Using the screen on the GamePad players can quickly access their map and weapons, or switch the GamePad out for a Wii U pro controller. Alternatively, players are able to transfer all the horror to the GamePad as the title utilizes Off TV play. The Miiverse feature will offer Wii U players further exclusives. Players can post a dying message on the Game Over screen for other players around the world to see. The Creatures Voice function allows players to personalize the thoughts of enemies in Raid Mode to taunt their friends.
Resident Evil Revelations supports Residentevil.net with online events and in-game connectivity planned for after launch. Exclusive dioramas of the game's characters and enemies can be collected through the online service. Earn custom parts and weapons for use in Raid Mode and items for Campaign Mode.
