In the tradition of revealing games exclusively through magazines comes yet another reveal from Capcom in the form of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. And if that name didn’t tip you off, the series is heading back to Raccoon City where it all began. It’s a bit of a lengthy read but here are some of the interesting tidbits from OXM summarized by Stickskills.
The most evil logo in the world
- The game takes place in 1998, a time where Resident Evil fans already know what's set to take place.
- The title lets you enjoy the series from a new perspective, as the men and women who are technically responsible for it all.
- Rather than continuing the zombie slaying antics of BSAA agents, you're taken back to the original outbreak “that underscored both Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.”
- The game doesn't require any crazy amounts of knowledge of the past titles or characters involved in the series.
- The title opens up to a “quartet of new faces”. Essentially, you're playing as members of the official Umbrella Security Services squad.
- Operation Raccoon City is a team-based shooter allowing four members of the USS team to destroy all evidence of the ongoing outbreak.
- Along with slaying the zombies, you're looking to “kill pretty much every survivor possible”.
- The gameplay is described as “dirty”, and the series will feel much darker than it has up to this point.
