Hey, Resident Evil. What happened, dude? You used to be cool. I still remember the good old days of DON'T open THAT DOOR, Jill sandwiches and masters of unlocking. Of piss-poor voice acting, Wesker being an asshole and snakes that are huge and ALSO POISONOUS.

These were the days before survival horror became the kind of balls-out actiontastic you wouldn't see outside of a Schwarzenegger movie. More recent releases in the franchise have been completely unrecognisable.

Well, Revelations aside. This 2012 release got its shit together and harkened back the series' roots. It was a deft blend of the over-the-shoulder TPS controls and the explore-y, puzzle-solve-y style that Resident Evil had been lacking of late. For many players, it was enough to excuse a multitude of recent sins.

If you're one of those players, you'd better hold on to your undercrackers, because it's sequel o'clock. Resident Evil Revelations 2 arrives in early 2015, and it's time for the hype train to start hauling ass ‘round the track. To that end, here's ten minutes of sweet, sweet gameplay footage for you to suckle on, fresh from Kotaku.
