Capcom has detailed their plans for the release of Resident Evil Revelations 2. The sequel will continue the episodic format of the original, but instead of simply being a method presentation, the breaks will constitute individual weekly downloads that will run for a four-episode season. Each episode will be available individually for $5.99 or altogether as a Complete Season bundle for $24.99. Those who prefer a physical copy will be able to buy a retail disc version, set to ship after the final episode goes live, for $39.99. Additional, unspecified extra content will be included with the Complete Season bundle, which will also be included along with even more bonus content in the physical version. Revelations 2 follows Terra Save agents Claire Redfield and Moira Burton in their attempt to escape a zombie- and mutant-infested prison.
