Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City won’t be the only Resident Evil game releasing this year. Capcom today unveiled Resident Evil 6, the direct successor to Resident Evil 5 for the PS3 and Xbox360. The PC version will be released at a later date. But of course.
The game takes place nearly ten years after the events of Raccoon City and will let players step into the boots of protagonists like Leon S. Kennedy, Chris Redfield and some yet to be announced characters. Like Operation Raccoon City, this one seems more cinematic and action oriented with a cover system and the ability to shoot while moving. While I don’t have a problem with this direction, purists seem a bit upset at the fact that the new Resident Evil games have been more about running and gunning than slow paced creepy gameplay this series has become famous for.
What’s surprising is that even though the game just got announced today, it seems it will come out by the 20th of November for the Xbox360 and PS3.
