Capcom has released the physical version of Resident Evil Revelations 2.

All four episodes can also be downloaded for $5.99 each and the spin-off episode for $4.99, or they can be purchased altogether digitally as part of the Complete Season pass for $24.99. The difference between the Complete Season and the disc version is the latter’s inclusion of Wesker in Raid Mode, the alternate costumes, and the map pack.
