Even More Resident Evil News! Capcom Announces Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City

If you're one of our constant readers, you'll already know that Capcom is bringing Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica to the PS3 and 360, and that Resident Evil: The Mercenaries and Resident Evil: Revelations are both coming to the 3DS in the near future. Now they've confirmed the development of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City in collaboration between Capcom and Vancouver's Slant 6 Games, which is known for its entries in the SOCOM series.

Operation Raccoon City is a team-based shooter in which players take control of members of the Umbrella Corporation's Security Services, and takes place in the Resident Evil timeline concurrently with RE2 and RE3. In fact, it promises a "retelling" of key moments from both titles. Players will be charged with mopping up the Umbrella Corporation's mess and destroying incriminating evidence - including survivors (Leon S. Kennedy is quoted as being on the hit list) - all while battling classic Resident Evil zombies and monsters, as well as American military forces sent in to thwart your activities.

As you might expect given the nature of the game and it's developers' pedigrees, in addition to the main campaign, Operation Raccoon City will offer online multiplayer for those who want to frag both the living and the undead.

Ooh!
Excited about this.
Playing as evil Umbrella forces sounds like lots of fun.

it's bad enough that they screwed up the series with RE5 and now this, ugh

Sounds like it'll be something along the lines of Left 4 Dead meets the underrated (IMO) Resident Evil Outbreak series. Glad it's set around RE2 and 3, before the series went to crazy town. 4 is great, 5 is meh, but for me Resident Evil is all about Racoon City and that first wave of zombies.

And with the Socom devs making it? Count me in!

As a long time resi fan, I am not really happy about this. It'll probably be a good action game, and playing as umbrella sounds different, but seriously, is capcom trying to completely alienate people who loved what resi evil used to be? ]: RE5 really dissappointed me, and now Its like they want to straight up turn it into an explodey-fest shooter or something, which i know is smart from a commercial perspective, but I really miss the real Resident Evil.

How many times can one series revisit the same scenario?

Look no further than RE.

Then again, RE5 was the last game [and a far departure from what made the series great in the first place]...

If this comes out for PC, count me in. If it's console only, no thanks. I've never had good experiences trying to do team-based co-op stuff like this with console matchmaking, and almost no one on my friends list is ever on at the same time/wants to play the same game.

And honestly, I'm way more excited for RE4 and C:V in HD than I have been about anything RE related in years, and this used to be one of my favorite game series.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
