Capcom has unveiled Resident Evil: Revelations' Raid Mode, its single-player or two-player co-op experience.

In Raid Mode you play as Jill Valentine or Chris Redfield, and attack enemies to earn points that can be used to upgrade your character and weapons.

Raid Mode is playable over local Wi-fi or the internet, with levels lifted from the single-player experience. Enemies have levels and health bars appear above them. At the end of each mission the player receives a rank based on their performance. Loot is also given to the player.

"The story mode in the game is something we created with the single-player experience in mind," Revelations assistant producer Tsukasa Takenaka told Eurogamer. "I would like everyone to play the game in their bedroom with the lights off and headphones on. That's the way to experience the mode.

"At the same time, these games we create, we know they're really enjoyable when you're able to share some of that experience with a friend. Multiplayer is very important and that communication is something that resonates with everyone. We felt putting Raid Mode in, in this kind of structure, allowed us to do that for this game as well."

Meanwhile, Capcom announced the fourth playable character in Revelations' campaign: Keith Lumley. Lumley, alongside partner Quint Cetcham, act as comic relief in the otherwise serious game, and are described as "nerdy". In one sequence shown at a press event, the pair face off against invisible hunters, and players must use the Genesis Scanner to detect them.

"Previous Resident Evil games have featured maybe not so many characters," Takenaka said. "In older Resident Evil games the story takes place from one or two characters' perspectives and progresses with them from beginning to end.

This game is different in that you see a lot of different viewpoints from a lot of different characters. The viewpoints shift around. That's one of the things we're talking about with the episodic structure of the story. You get to see things unfold from different characters in different times, and we found different kinds of characters makes that even more compelling.

"They do seem a bit comical, but when you see how they fit into the story and what they bring to the experience, they're definitely Resident Evil characters."

Also revealed is Revelations' "Enhance 3D depth slider" option, which allows players to widen or narrow the 3D effect provided by the Nintendo 3DS slider. You can select from normal, strong and very strong.

The Western version of the game includes the Japanese voice over as a bonus. It also allows you to reset your game save data - a response to the controversy surrounding the lack of a save game reset feature in Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D.

that's a typo, right? i didn't spend $40 on it for it to be included as a bonus feature on the real game, RIGHT?

Beautiful game. I can't wait to walk around the ship. I'll be playing this game with my surround sound base system for total immersion :D (playing Starfox 64 is awesome with surround sound too).

Anyways, the multiplayer mode is sounding ace. Cannot wait.

Did you honestly think that wasn't going to happen?

Yes, anyone who bought Mercenaries wasted their money.

It's Capcom. They always do this sort of stuff.

Anyways this game looks amazing. Day one buy for sure.

Just for you.

I'm with everyone- RE Mercenaries should have not been a standalone release but rather included with Revelations :/

Not only would it have given them more time to polish the game in all aspects, but also included more content even maps based off locales in Revelations (if they ever wanted to make that effort). Oh well, I guess I'll get Mercenaries when it's $20 as I only have so much money to spend.

@rom Do you still play the game? Because I would have gotten it sooner maybe just to play with you, tech and rory but I'm sure you all "beat" the game already.

Also, I'll be on Goldeneye within a month! things are looking up! I miss everyone :D

Daamn that looks beautiful! :O
Online and local is great too. Thank god I won't have to wait a week to play the multiplayer with my friends. This game gets better with every announcement!
Japanese voice acting too?! Wow, Capcom's really going all out. This game is probably going to be a day one buy after all!

I was really happy with my Mercs purchase. Ive had plenty of online fun with it on the 3DS and there isnt many games on the 3DS you can say that about. Looking to buy this day one like I did with Mercs but I have to say Raid mode looks dissapointing to me. It just doesnt look that fun not like the Mercs games and it looks sluggish and dreary. Its a bonus feature though so I cant knock it, its the main adventure mode that is important.

With this being Capcom, no doubt when sales start to slow on Revelations they will release a double pack with Revelations and Mercaneries on a single cart just like they are doing with the Chronicles games currently being ported to PS3.

i think the guy in the link misspoke and probably meant to say raid mode, not mercenaries, since that's what the article is about. but still, the fact that mercenaries has a full single player story and a bonus mode highlights how half***ed mercenaries was... not even one new map!

there is no "beating" the game since there is no game, just stages to play over and over, ha. i still play occasionally, here's my code: 1547-5267-3036

I don't know about you, but that is a bit of a turn off. I'll still be getting the game though. Looks beautiful and seems like it has a lot of content. Seems well worth 50 bucks.

@lz20XX Vita games are only using 2GB cards at the moment, Capcoms decision is based on the fact it is using 4GB cards.
No doubt when Vita games are on larger cards the price will be higher too.

Yes. Yes, you did. Now slap yourself very hard.
