Resident Evil Revelations: Underwater Gameplay, Zombies
Go for a swim in Capcom's survival horror adventure. Plus, a familiar enemy makes a brain munching comeback.
The Resident Evil Revelations demo, included with each copy of Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, was one big tease. Don't get us wrong. Better to have something than nothing, but come on. A five minute demo?
Thankfully, Capcom revealed new details concerning its survival horror adventure that'll make fans excited.
First, hero Jill Valentine will be able to swim underwater, a first for the Resident Evil series. It'll be interesting to see whether the developers implement gyroscope controls for controlling the camera.
That said, gamers can also expect to use a flashlight to see, as well as underwater weapons to combat new enemies, one of which may be a giant squid like creature.
Next, Chris Redfield has teamed with a new character named Jessica, who appears to be a bit whiny.
There's also a mysterious and masked man, identity unknown.
Finally, and this is a big one, zombies will make a triumphant return to the franchise after disappearing from Resident Evil 4. Just don't expect the same undead freaks from the first three games.
While none of this info sheds light on the story per se, look for additional Resident Evil Revelations news next month.
