Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City feels like a spiritual successor to Resident Evil: Outbreak. Fans of the online survival horror game will be happy to know that some of the Outbreak team are working on Operation Raccoon City.
The news comes from Dengeki PlayStation, which also notes that Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be the bloodiest game in the series to date. Developed by SOCOM developers Slant Six, Operation Raccoon City puts you into the shoes of an Umbrella Security Service officer. Your character is a member of a four man squad. When you’re not playing with friends, the computer takes over the other three characters.
An interesting tidbit from Dengeki’s feature mentions Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has significantly more recorded lines than originally planned. This suggests the scenario may be longer than the first draft too.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is slated for release in Q4 on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. Here, have some new screenshots from Capcom:
