Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Confirmed

Posted By | On 25th, Mar. 2011 Under Industry News, News

The long rumored Resident Evil team-based shooter ‘Operation Raccoon City’ has finally been confirmed by the Official Xbox Magazine US. The game will allow up to four players to take the role of USS soldiers cleaning up evidence, zombies and survivors, of the Raccoon city outbreak, the very catastrophe on which Resident Evil 2 is based.  It will feature three rival factions; the player(s) as the USS, the US Spec Ops who are there to repel the USS and Umbrella Corporation’s “bio-organic weapon monsters.” The USS will have four different characters to choose from, each with their own responsibilities within the unit.

Interestingly, according to OXM US, the game allows the player to “change the history of Resident Evil;” Not only will you interact with characters from previous games, you can also kill them. This includes Resi 2’s Leon Kennedy, who would otherwise go on to be a rather integral part of Resi 4.

The game is planned for release this winter on both PS3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks to CVG for the info.

    ok i like resident evil and i might play this. but i think these games are wasting time and messing the story and legacy of resident evil. how can they make COD HALO MADDEN every 6 months yet we get resident evil every 5 years.

    resident evil 0 started it and the shooters on the wii, and 5 was not as good as it should have been.

    common capcom work on an epic final resident evil with all the characters in it.

    Was not expectin this…at all. What a great surprise. Getting a team of friends & wipin out zombies…its gonna b Left 4 Dead all over again. The whole thing about 2 b able 2 change the history of the franchise is mind blowing. Hope this helps wipe the memory of Resident Evil Outbreak from brain.

      but how is changing the history gonna be presented? are we gonna see videos at the end of this game or what?

      plus i think these side quests should be done after we conclude the story of resident evil not during.

    Just found out that this is developed by Slant 6, the team behind Socom confrontation 4 the ps3 & the psp socom games. So it should b at the least decent.

    It will never end as long as it makes money…lol. Capitalism @ its finest. They haven’t been pumpin them out evry yr so I don’t think RE has outstayed its welcome yet.
