GameRevolution: As a self-professed under-informed enthusiast of the Resident Evil franchise, I felt criminally unprepared for the hands-on opportunity I got with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 in a recent demo. With PlayStation 4 controller in-hand, I got to check out an early build of the game as it is currently in development with the Japanese market in the lead and a Western release following closely behind. Where the previous Revelations game landed on Nintendo 3DS, pushing an immersive experience in 3D, the game did well on console and the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4 platforms take the lead with Revelations 2.
With series staple Mercenaries Mode returning to the Resident Evil 4 Remake, it’s time to remind fans of another mostly forgotten mode from the RE series. Reaching the second chapter in the 2012 3DS game Resident Evil: Revelations unlocked something called Raid Mode for players to enjoy. Unlike Mercenaries, Raid Mode is not a time-attack mode and instead operates as a more RPG-lite version of the main game. While players are expected to try and hammer down on a handful of levels in Mercenaries, Raid Mode gives players a much more expansive game type to play around with.
This mode was included in ports released on the seventh and eighth generations of consoles and was part of Resident Evil: Revelations 2, which was released in 2015. However, the Revelations duology is the only time that Raid Mode has existed in the massive Resident Evil franchise, and that should change in some future release.
The Switch has been out for a few years now with a large library. Check out the games with the biggest file sizes as of January 2021.
