Capcom has revealed in a press release that Resident Evil Revelations 2 will release in four downloadable episodes.

Each episode will be released weekly at $6, with a season package coming at a later date for $25 which will include additional content. A $40 disc version will also release at some point, and will also feature additional content.

“The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favorite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return to the horrors that haunted her in the past,” the press release reads, in part. “Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organisation Terra Save. Moira Burton, new recruit and daughter of Resident Evil legend Barry Burton, is attending her welcome party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office.”

“Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and awaken later to find themselves in a dark and abandoned detention facility. Working together, they must find out who took them and to what sinister end. With the terrifying Afflicted enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style.”

The press release adds that the game will feature game modes separate from its episodic story mode as well.
