Next Resident Evil Game to Star Returning Female Lead, Plus One New Character

If you're a fan of the Resident Evil series (for what it is or was), you may be interested in knowing that the new Revelations game will star our old friend Claire Redfield, who was last seen in the Arctic back in 2000 in Code Veronica. But that's not all, a new face will be joining the fray as well, if you don;t already know, see if you can guess who she is:

Moira Burton
Yep, you read that caption right, Moira Burton, daughter of Jill Sammich lovin' Barry Burton.

Not much detail has been released about the game, but the devs are aiming to create a game that is more horror based than it's predescor (whether they are referring to JUST Revelations or the series has a whole is not known), and it will feature co-op play as the previous game did, so if you were hoping for more Resident Evil 2 and less Resident Evil 5, well, sorry.

‘I want this to be both a game that doesn't lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series, achieving that lofty goal by bringing together past and future will make this an itchy-tasty prospect indeed.’

Okabe, the games producer, has stated that the two play different roles, Claire, being the badass veteran she is, is primarily focused on combat, where Moira is 'support', how that will effect co-op is not known.

Resident Evil: Revelations 2 will release on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and PC early next year.
