In anticipation of Resident Evil: Revelations HD's May 24th release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U, Capcom have revealed the first ever "blood swimming pool." And red water isn't the only quirk about this pool; floats will be in the form of human torsos, lane dividers in the form of brains and intestines, and lifeguards in the form of zombies. Also expect to run into bloody bandages, eyeballs, tendrils, and blood clots while you're swimming about.
The pool will be open for only two days, Saturday May 25th and Sunday May 26th, but tickets are free and you can start ordering them on May 20th. However, only 200 tickets are being given away, 100 for each day, and you need to be sixteen or older to go (under eighteen must be accompanied by an adult). You'll find the blood pool in the United Kingdom at Jupiter Wharf, London E3 2PL.
Capcom's UK PR manager Adam Merrett said a few words regarding this Resident Evil: Revelations promotion:
"To non-zombies, the swimming pool will be shocking, gory and an
incredibly disturbing experience – the perfect way to show that survival
horror is back with a bang for Resident Evil Revelations".

So now we've heard of two interesting marketing plans this week: PlayStation 4's and now Resident Evil's. Who's next?
