Resident Evil Revelations 2 takes the series in a new direction with episodic gameplay and multiple storylines featuring popular characters throughout the series’ terrifying universe. While it was previously announced that Revelations 2 would be released across several downloadable episodes a while back, the exact nature and timetable of the event had still been up in the air, until now. We at APGNation are happy to say that we finally have releases date for every episode of Revelations 2, which you can find below in handy chart form.

Claire Redfield, a character who hasn’t been a star of a RE game in some time, and Moira Burton (playable in co-op mode) will headline the main story in Revelations 2. Fan-favorite Barry Burton, who first appeared in the first Resident Evil game as the S.T.A.R.S. weapons expert, will join the cast of Revelations 2. Natalia Kora, a girl with a unique ability to detect items, will also be featured. Two new types of enemies are also premiering with Revelations 2: a skeletal foe that desires only to hunt the living called the Rotten, and a horrible being sewn together from the corpses of the dead known as the Revenant.
Gamers looking to jump into the action can either buy each episode of Resident Evil Revelations 2 as described above for $5.99, or spend $24.99 for the season pass, which will also include two bonus mini-episodes and the use of the character Hunk in Raid mode. Those not keen on DLC games also have the option of buying a physical copy that will release on March 15th and feature even more new content: the ability to play as Wesker in Raid mode, a new costume for all of the game’s main playable characters, and four “Throwback” stages for Raid mode based on environs from previous entries in the Resident Evil series.
