Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City, the third-person shooter set around events in Resident Evil 2 and 3, is now available for PC. The PC version supports Nvidia 3D Vision, higher resolution, and multiplayer for up to eight players online in versus and four players in co-op campaign. The free US Spec Ops Mission DLC available for consoles will also be available for PC, but at a later date.
The first of seven new missions for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is set to launch on April 10. The new content expands on the game by introducing players to the team of US Spec Ops soldiers that serve as the U.S.S.’s opponents in multiplayer. The free mission features squadmates Harley, Dee-Ay, Tweed, Willow, Shona, and Party Girl on a search to find the cause of the recent outbreak.
It’s time to hit the zombie-infested streets of Raccoon City once again in Capcom and Slant Six Games’ Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City. The 360, PS3 team-based shooter follows a member of the Umbrella Security Service as he attempts to destroy evidence of the t-Virus while battling zombies, bio-organic weapons, and a rival squad. A reinterpretation of Resident Evil 2 and 3, similar to The Darkside Chronicles, Operation Raccoon City includes “the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks, and fan favorite characters including Leon S. Kennedy.” Multiplayer is also supported, with eight players signing up as Umbrella security or US Spec Ops and battling it out in various versus modes.
Capcom will be extending your stay in Raccoon City a bit longer with free DLC for the upcoming Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City. Beginning April 10, zombie fighters stationed in North America will be able to redeploy into Raccoon City as a member of a Spec Ops team in search of the source of the virus outbreak. The team will face off against zombies, mutants, as well as members of the Umbrella Security Service in a storyline that takes place between Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3.
Xbox 360 owners looking forward to Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will need to set aside some MS Points for an extra online mode. Capcom has announced that Nemesis Mode, an eight-player competitive mode that pits Umbrella Security Service squads against Spec Ops forces, will be available on launch day as a 360 exclusive. The big twist: the team that holds the control unit gets to control Nemesis. Slaughtering opponents with a massive mutated cyborg of your very own will cost 320 MS Points.
PC gamers feeling left out of the recent Resident Evil action should be happy to hear that Capcom has confirmed May 18 as the official launch date of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. The PC version will include support for Nvidia 3D Vision, enhanced visuals, and in addition to all of the features of the console version, the ability to play in an online eight-player team-based verses mode and four-player campaign mode.
