There's no doubt that Resident Evil
is one of the most popular gaming franchises out there. After all, it was all about zombies before games about zombies was the 'in' thing.
Sure, many of you have played Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360)
and Resident Evil 6 (Xbox 360)
, but how many of you took the time to play the 3DS entry, Resident Evil Revelations
? Probably not quite as many of you as a result of the platform it was released on.
Today, Capcom has announced that Resident Evil Revelations
will come to the Xbox 360, and like you might expect from such ports, the new system will mean some new features. The 360 release will include HD visuals, and enhanced lighting. Not all of the upgrades will be aesthetic, as new content, including a new enemy, an extra difficulty, and upgrades to the game's Raid mode, will also be included.
Raid Mode allows gamers to play online in co-op mode or alone against waves of enemies. This game mode lets players level up their character and also grants weapon upgrades. Among the upgrades to Raid Mode for this release will be "new weapons, skill sets and the opportunity to play as Hunk and other characters from the series".Resident Evil Revelations
takes place between the events in Resident Evil 4 HD (Xbox 360)
and Resident Evil 5 (Xbox 360)
, and stars series favorites Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield, as well as their partners, Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat. The setting for the game is the 'Queen Zenobia', a persumedly abandoned cruise ship. Players will have to contend with limited weapons and ammo as they eventually head for the mainland and discover the devastated city of Terragrigia. As the story unfolds, they will eventually learn the truth about the T-Abyss virus.
