Today Capcom confirmed that Resident Evil Revelations is coming to Xbox 360 and PS3 as rumored. However, those aren't the only platforms that will receive the survival horror game. Capcom is also porting the game to the Wii U and PC.
The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions aren't a big shock. They were outed by a ratings board and Achievements list. However, this is the first time we've heard anything about Wii U or PC editions of the game. Glad that the world still has some surprises in it.
Revelations was first released in January 2012 for the 3DS. The game's campaign took place between Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. The newly formed Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance needs to combat a terrorist group called Il Veltro that is threatening to unleash bio-organic weapons across the world. Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield and their respective partners will battle their way through a cruise ship and city full of mutants.
The console and PC editions of the game will obviously look a lot better than their 3DS predecessor. Capcom is promising HD graphics and improved lighting. You can see these features for yourself in the new screenshots below. The visual upgrades will be accompanied by remastered sound. Gameplay improvements include a new difficulty mode and a "terrifying new enemy."
The single-player/co-op Raid Mode from the 3DS version will be returning as well, albeit with some improvements. Players will complete standalone mission to earn XP and upgrades. The updated Raid Mode brings new weapons and skillsets, and lets players take on the role of Hunk and other series veterans.
Resident Evil Revelations will launch on consoles and PC on May 21st in North America. The European launch will follow on May 24th. Starting on January 24th, you can pre-register at Residentevil.net to get access to Revelations-themed content. Capcom will release new content for the game through that site after the game's launch.
