Capcom has posted a new Resident Evil Revelations 2 video which takes a look at the character Claire Redfield and her new hardened look for the game. The video discusses the character with members of the development team who provide much insight into their vision considering it’s been a while since Claire was the lead character in a Resident Evil game. Gamers can expect a release in early 2015 on last gen, current gen systems and PC.
Ever since she set foot in Raccoon City, Claire Redfield has been one of the most popular characters in the Resident Evil universe. As an audience surrogate, she helped us feel fear where others may have confidently stood their ground; as a prisoner on Rockfort island, she proved even “untrained” civilians could hold their own in a desperate, BOW-ridden scenario.
In Revelations 2, Claire continues her personal journey, growing into a capable, seasoned member of NGO Terra Save. In this organization she helps those who’ve suffered from BOW attacks, which would seemingly take her out of the direct line of fire. However, as the opening of Revelations 2 has already shown us, Claire still isn’t safe…
To discuss her growth and role in Revs 2, we met with three key members of the development team in Japan. They outline where Claire is when game begins, how she may grow throughout the story and how she and Moira learn to trust each other.
