Resident Evil: Revelations 2’s Raid Mode detailed

Select a character, customize them, and play co-op with a friend.

Capcom has updated the official Resident Evil: Revelations 2 website with new details on the upcoming sequel’s multiplayer Raid mode.

Players will be able to customize one of Revelations 2‘s characters, equipping them with various weapons an custom parts, and playing cooperative with a friend.

Get the details below.

The History of Raid Mode

Raid Mode began as an action-packed “shoot-and-loot” style additional mode in the previous Revelations. Players battle their way through an army of enemies on multiple stages in order to collect more powerful weapons. These weapons can be customized to their liking and then used to take on harder stages with even stronger enemies. That finely tuned and satisfying game play loop kept many a player entertained for hundreds of hours even after they had finished the game’s main campaign.

Deployment – Raid Mode has always been about collecting loot such as weapons, custom parts, and currency; in Revelations 2, you’ll also find treasure chests thrown into the mix. Remember, however, your ultimate goal is to always find and break the goal emblem at the end of each stage.
