The ESRB outs zombies and a chainsaw-wielding enemy for Resident Evil Revelations
The ESRB has just put out their rating and accompanying summary of next year’s 3DS-exclusive, Resident Evil Revelations. Obviously, the game is being given an ‘M’ rating because as we all know, ” the game contains scenes of explicit violence and gore.” But no really, the ESRB has outed some interesting things with this rating.
First you got the mention of zombies. Now, we all know how we’ve been dying to see the classic foes rear their rotting facades in Revelations. And if the ESRB is right on the money here then we may just get our wish fulfilled. But then again, it’s worth noting how the ESRB also stated that Mercenaries 3D had zombies in it, which, of course, turned out being false. But hey, they were right in detailing the enemies in Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition as being humanoid monsters, infected with a parasite. So, yes, there could be some truth to this, and we could (hopefully) end up facing some good ol’ zombies in the game come February 7.
Lastly, the ESRB states that a ” human character is seen getting sliced by a chainsaw as she struggles in the air.” For some reason, this makes me think of Rachel’s brutal death at the hands of one of the Ooze. But, said enemy didn’t have a chainsaw, though his arm looks like it’s just as deadly! So, a chainsaw-wielding enemy in Revelations, huh? Sounds good to me! Could he be another member of the Salvador family?
You can check out the full summary below:
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of two counter-terrorism operatives attempting to stop a bio-terrorist plot. Players use handguns, rifles, machine guns, and rocket launchers to kill hordes of zombies and mutated creatures. Battles are highlighted by screams of pain and realistic gunfire; enemies collapse to the ground when killed, dissolving into pools of blood and chunks of flesh. Blood-splatter effects occur when humans or zombies are attacked, and some characters are depicted with exposed organs/viscera. In one level, a human character is seen getting sliced by a chainsaw as she struggles in the air; in another, a corpse with a mutilated face is depicted hanging against a wall. The word “sh*t” appears in the dialogue.
