Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be an episodic game, Capcom has revealed, with new episodes set to roll out each week following its debut in early 2015.

Four episodes will release in total, with each one said to feature "hours of terrifying gameplay ending with dramatic cliff-hangers".

The full season will also be available to purchase on disc following the release of the final episode.

The series will see co-stars Claire Redfield and Moira Burton struggling to survive an abandoned detention facility in "classic survival horror style", with plenty of twists and turns promised along the way.

Each episode will cost €5.99, or players can pick up the Complete Season featuring additional game content for €24.99. UK-specific prices have yet to be confirmed.

"The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favourite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return to the horrors that haunted her in the past," says Capcom. "Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organisation Terra Save.

"Moira Burton, new recruit and daughter of Resident Evil legend Barry Burton, is attending her welcome party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office. Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and awaken later to find themselves in a dark and abandoned detention facility. Working together, they must find out who took them and to what sinister end.

"With the terrifying Afflicted enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style. Will Claire and Moira make it out alive and discover what's led to them being taken to this remote island? Who else will they come across? A story of twists and turns will have players guessing the next step at every turn."

Resident Evil Revelations 2 releases on PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC early next year. For the first screenshots, head through here.
