Atmosphere and Location
Despite the fact that this video game is branded as Resident Evil Revelation 2, players don’t require prior experience of previous releases to play this game. This is partly because it is based on a fresh storyline. As such, this game is designed for the familiar and unfamiliar player.
In this video game, you will be playing from a third person perspective while interacting with other characters. Although the game supports a cooperative gameplay, only one of the players uses a gun. The counterpart uses crude weapons like bricks and crowbars or a flashlight to distract an enemy.
This video game is based on a dimly lit mysterious island that gives a classic sense of survival horror. At the island, you will get a chance to traverse through the claustrophobic cramped corridors with uninviting appearance, and spooky woods. This atmosphere makes your subconscious level of imagination to run wild.
Resident evil revelations 2’s horrific environment is spiced up with a haunting piece of violin music which gets you into the real mood you need to explore and fight for survival in the ghostly island. Players who have played this game report that the music is chilling and that every noise you hear makes you feel like there could be an approaching monster.

Resident Evil Revelations2’s episode one starts with the kidnapping of Claire Redfield and Moira Burton by masked assailants. The masked assailants take Claire and Moira who work at Terra Save to a facility on Sushestvovanie Island.
After realizing that her daughter has been taken hostage, Moira’s father, Barry Burton starts a mission to rescue her. During the mission at the Sushestvovanie Island, Barry meets Natalia the mysterious girl who guides him around the Island.
Barry and the mysterious girl head to a radio tower where Claire and Moira had fled for safety. They encounter dangerous situations along the way, and they take six months to arrive at the radio tower, and they could not find Claire and Moira.
At Sushestvovanie Island, Claire Redfield and Moira Burton meet Pedro and Gabe, their fellow workers who were planning to flee the island using a helicopter. Unfortunately, they are ambushed by monsters and separated from each other.
In the event of the ambush, Pedro is transformed into a monster while Moira and Claire try to fight the monsters, which they finally overpower through the help of Neil who arrive at the scene moments later.
Neil asks Moira and Claire to flee as he fights the monsters and he informs them to meet at a factory nearby. Gabe tries to escape using the helicopter, but the overseer crashes it remotely, killing Gabe.
Claire and Moira pass through a series of dangers before they arrive at the factory and they could not trace Neil. They decide to move on to the overseer’s tower. On the way to the tower, they find Neil who they kill since he had mutated.
On the other hand, Natalie and Barry get into the tower where they narrowly survive the attacks from the overseer who had mutated to Alex Wesker.
After killing the mutated Neil, Claire and Moira manage to arrive at the tower safely. While at the tower, they are attacked again, and Claire gives up her life to save Moira. Later on, Moira meets her father and Natalia, and they escape from the tower.
DLC and Expansion Packs
