Resident Evil Revelations 2 will release episodically on Xbox in 2015

Capcom's Resident Evil Revelations 2 for Xbox One

Capcom has announced that it will release Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Xbox One and Xbox 360 in early 2015.

At least, that’s when it will begin releasing the game. Breaking from franchise tradition, the sequel will adopt an episodic release format and will be split up into four digital episodes available for $5.99 each. It’s a release format perhaps best known to gamers thanks to another game franchise that pits humans against zombies: The Walking Dead. For its part, Capcom claims that this format is an evolution of the original Revelations‘ chapters format, though those chapters were sold together as a single release.

The publisher will release Resident Evil Revelations 2‘s episodes one week at a time before making the entire game available as a single digital release that will include some sort of additional content for $24.99. A retail version is also planned for a later date, and it will feature even more exclusive content at an MSRP of $39.99. Capcom promises that each episode “will feature hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers.”

Revelations 2 will put players in control of series mainstay Claire Redfield and task them with confronting the horrors of Redfield’s past. Joining her in the sequel is Moira Burton, who, along with Redfield, has been captured and must find out who took them and why.


Telltale Games bringing The Wolf Among Us to Xbox One

Telltale Games recently announced via Twitter that this fall they will be releasing their acclaimed adventure games, The Walking Dead (both seasons) and The Wolf Among Us on Xbox One. The Walking Dead will release in October next month, with The Wolf Among Us following in November.  Players who have played the Xbox 360 or PC editions of these games likely won’t find a compelling reason to upgrade, but for players who missed out on these games in the previous generation of consoles, this revival of the adventure genre will come as a welcome addition to the ever-growing library of titles available on Xbox One.

The Walking Dead In the Pines trailer

It’s no secret that The Walking Dead Season 2 is off to a great start. The series is only two episodes in, and it’s getting loads of praise from critics and fans. A new trailer has been released showcasing the series so far, showing clips from the first two episodes and the various accolades the game received. The true star of this trailer isn’t Clementine or the zombies, but the beautifully emotional song that begins to play halfway through.

Fans of the game will no doubt recognize the tune, as it played during the credits of Episode 2. The song in question is “In the Pines”, a traditional American folk song dating back to the 1870s. The rendition heard in the game/trailer was arranged by Jared Emerson-Johnson, the long-time Telltale composer, and sung by Janel Drewis, who works at Telltale as an animator. The track is currently available for free, and you can download it from Bandcamp here.


The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided review (XBLA DLC)

The Walking Dead Season 2 was developed and published by Telltale Games. It was released March 5, 2014 for $4.99.


So far, The Walking Dead Season 2 has been off to a slow start. The first episode spent a lot of time separating itself from the original series, while setting the stage for the current one. It was a lot of build-up that ultimately had little immediate payoff.  Thankfully Episode 2: A House Divided picks up right where the last left off, allowing the story to kick itself into full gear. We finally see the direction the series is going, as Clementine’s new group is forced to deal with a mysterious new villain, Carver. Telltale delivers the experience we’ve come to expect from The Walking Dead - one full of tough choices, rough consequences, and a good helping of zombie slaughter.

The Walking Dead Season 2 Episode 2 coming tomorrow

the walking deadbridge

The second episode of The Walking Dead Season 2 was already announced to be coming this week, but now we have an exact date. You can get your hands on Episode 2: A House Divided on March 5, which just so happens to be tomorrow. The episode will continue the adventures of Clementine and her new group as they face a danger worse than zombies. You can check out the trailer for the episode here, which gives you the first look at the series’ first villain, Carver. The episode will be available for $4.99 or free for season pass holders.


The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided coming next week

It’s been a while since the premiere of Telltale’s The Walking Dead Season 2 in December, but the wait for more will be over very soon. The second episode of the series, A House Divided, will be available next week. The exact date for XBLA hasn’t been announced, but should be confirmed soon by Telltale. The episode’s trailer has emerged as well, showing the people and places you can expect to see on Clementine’s continued adventures through the zombie apocalypse. The episode will cost $4.99, and will be free for season pass holders.


The Walking Dead’s next episode is ‘just around the corner’


Earlier this week, Telltale Games took to Twitter to let its legions of fans know that the second episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two is ‘just around the corner.’ The Walking Dead: Season One, which was an immensely popular success, returned for Season Two on December 17.

Those of you who have played the first episode of Season Two already know that the current season is centered around Clementine. She was a major character in Season One, and this time around she is a little older and a lot wiser. The accompanying image that was in Telltale’s tweet gives you a good sense that we’re no longer dealing with the shy naive little girl from Georgia.  It’s quite astonishing the quality of work that has been released from Telltale Games of late and Season Two looks to be more of the same.
