Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

Rumors
about the next
Resident Evil
have been validated, and it has been confirmed that a new game is
scheduled for release this winter. This title is dubbed
“Resident
Evil: Operation Raccoon City”

and will be developed by Slant Six, the former body behind
SOCOM
series. The game will be set in 1998 during the original outbreak
that underscored the first few games in the franchise. This time
however, players will not be taking part as BSAA agents, but those
responsible for the outbreak at Umbrella Corporation. In the game, up
to four players can take roles as USS (Umbrella Security Services)
and engage in team-based missions. USS is comprised of Vector,
Beltway, Bertha, and Spectre. Your role on the team will vary
depending on which character you choose. Objectives for the USS team
include destroying evidence of the outbreak, quarantining key
figures—and of course killing infected. An XP system will be
implemented in order to acquire weapon upgrades and abilities.

The
atmosphere in the game is described as being much darker than some of
the previous titles and no matter which team you play on, you will be
fighting the horrors created by Umbrella. In order to create the
“three-corner-conflict” there are two other factions featured in
Operation Raccoon City,
including the US Spec Ops and the “BOWs” (Bio-organic Weapon
Monsters). The three factions will be in constant battle with each
other but will ultimately be fighting off the infected as well.
Zombies in the game can sense players in three different ways: sight,
sound, and smell. This makes team role-playing very important and
puts emphasis on working together to complete objectives. There will
also be some descisions to be made as you interact with characters
from the RE universe, which will determine the future of the
storyline and the resulting events. Slant Six hasn’t revealed any
additional playable characters, but there are likely to be a few
familiar faces.

Evil: Operation Raccoon City
