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.
Raid Mode in Revelations 2
Player Customization – In Revelations 2, Raid Mode starts with choosing a character, and there are plenty of characters to match all tastes. After that, you’ll customize your weapons and skills to ready for deployment.
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.
Cooperative Play – Raid Mode allows for cooperative play — including local two-player split-screen! Grab a friend and get ready to shoot your way through one of the most exciting additional modes in Resident Evil history.
The first episode of Revelations 2 will be available on February 17. Three more will launch in the weeks following, with a full disc-based release due out on March 10. Find more details on the game’s release schedule here.
