‘Resident Evil Revelations 2’ Release Date Early 2015: New Gameplay Photos Revealed While Release Date Still Not Confirmed By Capcom

More excitement for "Resident Evil Revelations 2" was generated today as Capcom released several all new gameplay photos. Sadly however, the release date for the latest "Resident Evil" installment remains officially sometime early 2015, despite the rumors originating from the Playstation site that it would be available in February.

"Resident Evil Revelations 2" producer Michiteru Okabe recently spoke to Revil about what he felt was the difference between the main "numbered" "Resident Evil" series and the "Revelations" offshoot series.

"I think the big difference between the mainline series and offshoots like 'Revelations' is the fact that the numbered games tend to take bigger risks and try new things - their role is to innovate and evolve in big ways," said Okabe. "An offshoot series serves a different purpose in that it can lean more toward serving the existing fan base directly."

He went on to explain that he did not imply that the "numbered" series may not be as focused on horror as "Revelations" but it still involves a balance between horror and action. Nevertheless, since "Resident Evil Revelations 2" is essentially is geared more toward pleasing the fans, it makes sense that Capcom has continued to tease the game slowly as the early 2015 release date approaches.

The latest teasing effort comes in the form of some new gameplay photos. According to CVG, "The screens show protagonists Claire Redfield and Moira Burton as they explore an abandoned island detention facility and encounter the mutations living there."

Although the "Resident Evil Revelations 2" release date hasn't been officially set, the game's episodes as well as the eventual retail disc are currently available for pre-order. Specifically with a Playstation pre-order, fans will gain access to a "Raid Mode" of some previous "Resident Evil" installments.

Based on these new screenshots, it looks as though "Resident Evil Revelations 2" is sure to be as scary as Michiteru Okabe intended.
