More than five years after its original release on the previous generation of video game consoles, Capcom is getting Resident Evil Revelations ready for re-release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Updated for current generation consoles, Resident Evil Revelations features series Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned “Queen Zenobia” cruise ship.  Capcom says that this new version will boast a smoother 1920x1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail, and refined creature movement.  The company says it's "the best-looking version of the game to date."  Furthermore, all of the previously-released downloadable content is also included in the game in the form of unlockable rewards.

In Resident Evil Revelations, players can take on hordes of enemies with a friend online in the returning Raid Mode, which includes “The Ghost Ship: Chaos,” which is a fresh take on the popular stage with more powerful weapons and ways for players to upgrade their arsenal, and remixed enemy placements for an added challenge.  Additionally, four controller schemes based on control types from across the entire series are available in this version of the game for a more flexible experience to accommodate different playstyles.

The game is scheduled to launch in North America at retail and digitally on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Aug. 29 for $19.99.  A version for Nintendo Switch of both Resident Evil Revelations and its follow up Resident Evil Revelations 2, which features series favorites like Claire Redfield and Barry Burton, will also be available in late 2017.

Resident Evil Revelations is rated "M for Mature" by the ESRB.
