‘Resident Evil: Revelations’ Demo Coming Soon

Resident Evil: Revelations has been out on the handheld devices for quite some time now but its updated HD version is finally going to be hitting consoles this spring. Ahead of the full game, which is due out on May 21 Capcom is releasing a demo on the Xbox 360 and the PS3 as well as PC and Wii U.

While there isn’t an actual release date for the demo, demos generally come out a few weeks before the full version. That means we will likely see the demo around May 7. Along with the game being upgraded for the consoles, there are apparently plans to start offering up a season pass for the DLC that will be coming.

Resident Evil: Revelations’ demo will have you playing as Jill Valentine as you attempt to board the cruise ship the ‘Queen Zenobia.’ Once you actually get aboard the ship you have to try and rescue Chris Redfield and Jessica Sherawat.

Your former teammates have been missing but you have found coordinates that place them on this particular ship. The demo has you battling your way through a horde of enemies in order to get to your friends and then off the ship again.

Resident Evil has long been one of those series that had a bit of a cult following and the releasing of this edition on the console appears to be one way in which the game developers are trying to bring the series back into the mainstream.

It seems that having a game that puts Jill Valentine front and center again will do a good job of making sure that old school fans of the series will pick this title up as soon as it hits store shelves.

Are you a Resident Evil: Revelations fan from when it was on the 3DS and will you be picking it up when it moves over to the consoles?
