Fans of the acclaimed horror-survival hybrid series Resident Evil have a treat coming their way this autumn. Capcom has announced that Resident Evil: Revelations will be ported to Play Station 4 and Xbox One sometime during autumn 2017. The original game was released in early 2012 for the Nintendo 3DS, and only a year later was released in an HD version for PC, Wii U, Play Station 3, and Xbox 360. This HD remaster is the version that fans of the series can look forward to later this year.
Revelations takes place between numbered games 4 and 5 of the titular series and follows series regulars Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they work to stop a bioterrorist group from infecting the Earth’s oceans with a virus. Originally designed to bring the series back to its horror roots while modernizing the gameplay, the 2012 release of Revelations received a generally positive review. Generally positive was good enough for Capcom, and they released Revelations 2 in 2015. Those looking forward to this HD port can expect the usual updated graphics, but Capcom has so far been silent about any new features or upgrades. However, fans can rest assured that the game will keep the hair-raising, fast-paced combat that the series is known for.
The Resident Evil series has long been one of the first to come to mind when considering the horror genre of video games, which has gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. With that in mind, it comes as no surprise that Capcom has taken the time to port this installation to newer consoles. It is sure to be a very good looking, terrifying treat for both longstanding fans and players new to the series. Revelations is a good game to keep an eye out for this year, especially if it comes out in time for Halloween.
