Resident Evil Revelations 2 ESRB Rating Suggests Barry Burton’s Return
The gruff old man with a penchant for massive revolvers, getting blackmailed and cheesy dialogue could return in Resident Evil Revelations 2.
DualShockers reports that the ESRB has revealed its rating for Resident Evil Revelations 2 (surprise, it's an M rating) along with some other details about the game. The ESRB's rating describes the game as having all the usual things we could expect, such as blood, gore (when are they not paired together?), violence and curse words.
The ESRB's description of the game reads as follows:
This is an action-adventure game in which players assume the roles of an imprisoned woman and a father searching for his daughter on an island. Players use pistols, machine guns, rocket launchers, shotguns, and knives to kill zombies and mutated creatures. Combat is highlighted by screams of pain, realistic gunfire, and large blood-splatter effects. A handful of enemies are depicted with exposed organs, and one scene depicts an enemy having its hand cut off in slow-motion. Another scene depicts a human character shooting herself in the head with a pistol, resulting in a large splatter of blood. The words “f**k” and “sh*t” appear in the dialogue.
Reread that again, "a father searching for his daughter on an island." Claire Redfield's flashlight-wielding companion has been confirmed to be Moira Burton, the daughter of S.T.A.R.S. member and Resident Evil series veteran Barry Burton.
We hope Barry doesn't look too old in this game. He was already up there in the first Resident Evil game and his character bio had him born in 1960, so he'd be around 55 once Revelations debuts. Just as long as he's got a revolver and eye-rolling dialogue, we'll be content.
Resident Evil Revelations 2 will launch for PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One sometime in 2015.
Fighting as Old Man Barry could be creepy and awesome:
