Capcom has confirmed that Raid mode will launch with the first episode of Revelations 2 in February. You will be playing it offline only though, either solo or in split-screen co-op. As for the online portion, Capcom promised it will be added after the release of the final episode in March.

Content wise, Episode 1 will come with 54 Raid mode missions across three difficulty settings. Episode 2 and 3 will launch with 36 missions each, and Episode 4 will bring another 68 missions.

As for the maps, they will feature locations from the main game, the first Revelations game and – for some reason – Resident Evil 6.

15 characters in total will be available. You get new characters with each episode you buy, plus Hunk and Wesker if you opt in for the retail version, both will also be available to buy separately later. The revealed characters are Claire, Moira, Barry and Gina.

Various weapons and weapon parts will be available, and you unlock new weapons as you level up. Characters will now also have four times as many skills as the first game, allowing for more variations per character.

Watch this and more in the latest gameplay video, with nearly 20 minutes of footage, and some bonus dances.

Oh, and a few new Raid mode screens too.
