Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a multiplayer horror game that has been rumored to be in production. Now we know Slant Six Games is working on the title for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The first details of the game will appear in Official Xbox Magazine's May Issue. But since this thing called the internet exists we can see those details now.
RE: Operation Raccoon City takes you and three other players back to 1998, the year the first T-Virus outbreak occurred. RE:ORC will be team-based and include new characters, Vector, Beltway, Spectre, and Bertha. They are members of the official Umbrella Security Services squad. Each character will have their own unique skills, making team work essential to survival. As far as gameplay style the article says, "This is not a one-versus-one game where you've got one clip full of ammo and zombies on you. If you've ever thought of those times in an RE game when you thought, 'I'd wish I had a big gun', that's what this game is. It's not fair to give people big guns, then take all the ammo away."
You'll be fighting against familiar enemies: zombies. These zombies can hunt you down using sight, sound and smell. Not only will you be fighting the zombies, you'll also be destroying evidence that the outbreak ever occurred. Depending on how you play the game you'll be able to "change the history of Resident Evil".
Yesterday we confirmed Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil: Code Veronica would be re-released in HD. Are you ready for all these Resident Evil games?
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is due this winter for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
