Heads up for a really awesome Resident Evil experience this 2012! Capcom really is going all out with this classic flagship game of theirs with five all-new titles. And who can blame them? This 16-year old pioneer in zombie horror survival games really deserves the treatment. Let’s start with my most anticipated!
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
Release Date: 3/20/2012
Platform: PS3 / XBOX360 / PC
Summary: Taking place during RE2 and RE3 in Raccoon City, the player will assume the role of a USS (Umbrella Secret Service) agent, hired to eliminate survivors and any evidence that would expose Umbrella’s illegal activities. You will be mostly fronted with two opposing factors: the city’s Spec-Ops team, who on the other hand, aims to uncover the truth behind the company, and of course the flesh-hungry zombies/bio-organic weapons.
This third-person shooter will feature an offline single-player campaign mode and co-op up to 4 players via splitscreen, and a multiplayer online mode where everyone around the world can go trigger-happy against each other or versus AI. Also, Capcom revealed “Heroes Mode” where players can get to choose among classic RE heroes and villains as their characters when online. Pretty awesome, huh? I’m definitely going to get this game!
