Capcom has put dates on all four episodes of Resident Evil Revelations 2. The title will be out in February, and we have a new trailer and  batch of screenshots featuring original cast member Barry Burton.

It was Burton who delivered two of the most stilted lines in Resident Evil history, offering Jill “Master of Unlocking” Valentine a lockpick just hours before she almost became a “Jill sandwich.” Capcom has also revealed details about other modes included in the episodic title.

Each installment will include raid mode and two scenarios. One focuses on Claire Redfield and Moira Burton, Barry’s Daughter. The other puts Barry and Natalia Korda in the spotlight.

Episodes will cost $5.99 each, or $24.99 as a “complete season” package. The latter comes with two spinoff episodes featuring Moira and Natalia. The season bundle also includes Hunk as a raid mode character.

Episodes will begin rolling out weekly on February 17 (PSN) and February 18 (Xbox Live and Steam). You’ll be able to get the remaining installments on February 24/25, March 3/4, and March 10/11.

For those that would prefer to wait for a boxed set, a retail version will be available on March 10 for $39.99. It includes the four episodes, two spinoffs, and Hunk. Additionally, this edition comes with Albert Wesker playable in raid mode, an additional costume for each of the four main characters, and a “throwback stage pack” featuring classic Resident Evil locales in raid mode. The additional content in the retail bundle will be available for a la carte purchase on PSN, Xbox Live, and Steam.

Resident Evil Revelations 2 is coming to Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. For more, check out our coverage from the November 2014 issue.
