Some new details about Resident Evil: Revelations 2 have trickled out, including who the game will star and how the game’s story will fit within the series overarching narrative.
Push-Start-Play reports that the game will star series veteran Claire Redfield as its primary playable character, with Moira Burton, daughter of Barry Burton, acting as a supporting character with no combat abilities.
The game will be playable as both a single player campaign or cooperatively, with Claire being the combat-oriented character and Moira’s goal being essentially to keep Claire alive by using herbs to heal her and a flashlight to help her see in the dark. Revelations 2 will take place between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6, and will apparently begin with both girls waking up after having been abducted.
The game is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in early 2015.
