Resident Evil: Revelations’ Multiplayer is Blocked Until You Finish Single-Player
Capcom’s Nintendo 3DS addition to the long-running Resident Evil series includes online cooperative multiplayer — but you can’t access it until you’ve fought through the game’s 10-hour single-player campaign.
That’s the story according to Andriasang, based on a retailer briefing Nintendo gave today. Resident Evil: Revelations Producer Masachika Kawata said the game’s Raid mode will be locked until the single-player portion is completed. From the sounds of things, that makes sense, inasmuch as Raid mode is a reworking of levels from the main story that players can attack alone or with a partner.
Raid mode also includes secondary characters from the story mode, so it sounds like Capcom is holding back multiplayer in order to keep you from spoiling Revelations’ story for yourself. Unfortunately, this means you’ll need to clear a weekend to prep Revelations for launch before you can take it on with a friend.
