Capcom release the first of the four weekly Resident Evil Revelations 2 episodes on the Marketplace for the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 globally today, with the physical boxset being released in stores on the 20 March.

The story picks up from where Resident Evil Revelations leaves off, Claire has a new job working for anti-bioterrism group, Terra Save when she and Barry Burton’s daughter Moira get kidknapped and taken to a mysterious island. Barry heads off to the island to rescue his daughter and pals up with a brand new character Natalia. The story will alternate between the two sets of characters.

Each episode comes with 2 raid missions that add to Claire and Moria’s story, as well as Barry and Natatlia’s.

As with everything these days, there’s a season pass available for all the episodes for the price of GBP19.99/EUR24.99/$24.99, with each episode costing GBP4.99/EUR5.99/$5.99 each. It’s actually cheaper to by them separately if you do the math.

Episode 2 will be released on 4 March, with Episode 3 and 4 being released on 11 March and 18 March respectively.
