Resident Evil: Revelations getting DLC pass?

Steam listing reveals Season Pass for upcoming shooter will include four expansions; no comment from Capcom.

Capcom's upcoming PC and console shooter Resident Evil: Revelations is getting a downloadable content season pass, if the game's Steam product page is to be believed. This will include four expansions to be released "shortly" after the game launches on May 21.

No further information about these expansions was provided.

Capcom has not officially announced a DLC Pass for Resident Evil: Revelations and a company representative was not immediately available to comment.

Resident Evil: Revelations originally launched as a 3DS-exclusive in February 2012 and was announced for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and PC earlier this year.

In addition to high-definition graphics, the new version includes a number of features not found in the 3DS counterpart. These include new Raid mode playable characters and an "Infernal" difficulty option.

You know what's funny?  I started playing with RE remake on gamecube and the aiming system was crap. (Aim at roof and at your feet, not in front of you). RE4 was great improvement in gameplay mechanics. And btw, this game plays exactly like RE4 and 5. And many people (who like RE1-3) still say its a good game . A bit hypocritical in my opinion.

Wow, nobody is being FORCED to buy the extra content. I already have this game on the 3DS and am happily going to buy this game again because this game is actually that good. WAY better than Resident Evil 6. Look at it this way, don't buy this game and Capcom will think the players still want games like Resident Evil 6, which is bad bad bad. If they keep making  games like Resident Evil 6 they will ruin the Resident Evil name. I have several friends who have given up on Resident Evil after Resident Evil 6.

If I could I would buy 100 copies of this game to show my support for an actually good Resident Evil game, something we haven't seen in a long time.

Skip on this game if you want but trust me, You'll regret skipping this one.

Resident Evil DLC, I'd buy it just because it's Resident Evil.  At least this time they got it right and allowed you to play Jill Valentine!  I can't wait for this on PC, already pre-ordered on Steam.  Thanks Capcom!

So the whole game plays on a boat and you run through an endless amount of boring corridors and you shoot stupid looking shrimp-monsters?! WTF keep it! I rather play Cold Fear instead. Capcom has way too high expectations for this game, once again. This is NOT what the fans of the old games wanted. The game sold well on 3DS just because people had less alternatives

Released shortly after the game launches? How 'bout delaying Revelations a few weeks and make the DLC a part of the game fans are already going to be shelling out $60 for?

Yeah, we already knew this. The guy from Capcom Unity gave that away a couple weeks ago.

And Capcom wonders why Darkstalkers HD didn't sell so well, because they release the same old ass game like many times and now this?! I will do my part to support this game when I buy it used.

You know what, Capcom can keep this game. I'm not interested in something that is 60% complete only so that I can be charged again for the remaining 40%.

Way to go Capcom.  I was SO excited for this game because good horror shooter games barely exist anymore.  After I read this article, I had a sudden urge to vomit....

DLC is on a journey like smoking was: before the cancer and health issues were made abundantly clear, it was cool and a good thing before it got out of control and deemed unnecesary and a waste of money. Only good thing about this is that it (hopefully) doesn't cause cancer.

They're obviously trying to make up all the money they lost with Resident Evil 6.

DAMN IT. Fuck these greedy ass developers and their shitty ass season passes, and fuck the gamers that keep paying for them so that they KEEP RELEASING THEM! Man, I miss the days of free map packs on the PC.

I will bet $ 10 that this game ( knowing Capcom and their attempt to Westernize ) everything will have a MP component  and the season pass will be map packs.

Gee, I am shocked, SHOCKED that a Capccom game will be chock full of DLC.

What next, is someone going to find out that the DLC is already on the disk and unlocked via 108KB keys? Hahahaha... no wait a second...

I already have the soundtrack and the artbook. So...is there anything worth fucks? RAID DLC ZOMG NO WAY!? WHERE DO I SIGN UP? I already own Lost Planet EC and Lost Planet 2. Here's an idea, include a refund for RE6. I'll keep the RE5 Gold, RE4 HD, RECVXHD, and RE Degeneration that came with my archives version, you give me $60 dollars. I already owned those games too (except CVXHD) so how about including something worth a shit like, oh, a NEW megaman game? How about Megaman X, X2, and X3 for PS3 or 360? Piss off with your slap in the face bundled content.

Really, a DLC pass? I guess nintendo said no to it so they decided to put it consoles to add more DLC.

@cco61827 The problem is, people want to show faith in the RE game they like to see, but then instead of Capcom rewarding those purchasers with a ton of new content... They make DLC before the game is released and hold out. It's nothing new to Capcom and that's the problem. It's not like the game is being sold for $20 either, it's 50. They're selling it for $10 more than what the usual HD remake goes for, which means we're already paying for one piece of DLC.

It's not the product, it's the principle.

@abnergoinbig I'll wait for a couple more years until the game is available with the DLC on disk :)

@Karchy cold fear owns! i thought i was the only person in the world to even know about that game..

@UnrealPro Yeah those were the good days of gaming. One of the reasons map packs cost money now is because as soon as a map pack for Cod for example is released, all the 12 year olds jump at them straight away.

@firehawk998 You bet $10 that a port of a game with multiplayer will have multiplayer?  Risky business! :P

@Drilbit777  

I dont think thats it but the consoles wont be able to have the street pass features the 3DS version has.

@unfreak-believ @firehawk998 Hmm I didnt write my post well enough. What meant to imply was that maybe there were gonna add new types of MP into the game in order the sell the Map Packs. Put your post works

A multiplayer game will have Multiplayer its Muliplayerception :P
