The updated version of the 2012 survival horror video game - which was originally released on the Nintendo 3DS before being remastered for PC, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Xbox 360 in 2013 - will be coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles later this month.

In the game, players follow series veterans Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield as they investigate the reportedly abandoned 'Queen Zenobia' cruise ship, in an attempt to stop a bioterrorist organisation from infecting the Earth's oceans with a virus.

According to a press release for the game, the new version "features a smoother 1920x1080 resolution, an improved framerate, increased environmental detail and refined creature movement, defining this as the best-looking version of the game to date."

In addition to the increased detail and better look of the game, all the previously released downloadable content will be included at no extra cost, but will be locked until players earn it as a reward for completing certain tasks.

The online Raid Mode which sees players team up with a friend to defeat hordes of enemies is also returning to the game, and will include a fresh outlook on the popular map 'The Ghost Ship: Chaos', with more powerful weapons and ways for players to upgrade their arsenal, and remixed enemy placements for an added challenge.

As well as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, the new release will also be coming to Nintendo's latest hybrid console the Nintendo Switch, though a firm release date has yet to be revealed.

Nintendo Switch users will be able to get 'Resident Evil Revelations' and a re-master of its 2015 follow-up 'Resident Evil Revelations 2' later this year.
