Resident Evil Revelations 2 Co-Op Gameplay to be Released, Two Bonus Episodes Added, And More

Recently, Capcom confirmed that two bonus episodes of Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be released along with Episode 4 and the disc version of this title.  Users will gain automatic access to the extra episodes when they pick up a complete season or a boxed copy of this title. Other than this, bonus episodes can also be purchased and downloaded individually. However, Capcom is yet to reveal the prices of these episodes.

In the meantime, gamers are quite excited with the addition of these bonuses! ‘The Struggle’ episode focuses totally on Moira while the ‘Little Miss’ episode focuses on the other new protagonist known as Natalia. According to Capcom, Moira will fight to stay alive against the horrors of the island in ‘The Struggle’. She will be helped by an accomplice. Meanwhile, in the ‘Little Miss’ episode, Natalia will wake up to experience a whole new version of herself.

These two new bonus episodes present nicely designed stories that add up to the addendum in the primary plot. In the meantime, the concluding episode does a medium job of ending the Resident Evil Revelations 2 mysteries. At the same time, it features the clunkiest dialog and gameplay in this series.

The last three episodes of Resident Evil Revelations 2 were quite miserable. However, gamers still kept coming back to due to well-execution of the storyline and gameplay. Most believe that Resident Evil Revelations 2 was entirely designed for co-op gameplay, but it ultimately launched without the co-op element. However, it’s not sure whether Capcom really didn’t want to include or it wished to keep adding new features with time. In the end, it only took a modder to add the co-op feature within a week. Hence, it’s difficult to believe that Capcom just didn’t have the time to add it earlier.

The designers have developed a co-op in a really great manner. However, the game launched without online and offline co-op, which is quite sad. Usually, co-op should feature two identically skilled characters including a palette-swap. Compared to this, Resident Evil Revelations 2 co-op is quite asymmetrical. In one section, there are enemies that only a single player can see. When you are playing with a partner, it means that you need to make the other player understand as to where they need to shoot.
