New Resident Evil Revelations 2 Gameplay Surfaces With Dev Commentary

New gameplay footage is now available for the fans to take a look at the horror on offer in the upcoming Resident Evil Revelations 2.

The video in question features gameplay commentary by none other than producer Michiteru Okabe.

According to him the developers treat Revelations “as its own series.” Through this spin-off series they are aiming to combine old Resident Evil elements with new ones to give the fans something different.

There was a time when Resident Evil was on top of the food chain and the series was considered the biggest survival horror franchise around. But after the release of Resident Evil 4, the popularity of this franchise has decreased.

With Revelations, Capcom is putting their focus back on survival horror. According to Okabe, the game will feature some “stealth elements” as well.

“Some new elements we’ve incorporated in Revelations 2 include stealth elements, things like that… But at the same time I think because it’s not a mainline numbered series, it actually in a way limits our freedom, in a manner of speaking. I think that’s where the big risks tend to be taken and they tend to do things kind of out of the box.”

Expectations are high and hopefully Capcom will not disappoint. Resident Evil Revelations 2 is slated for release in 2015 for PS3, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
