Resident Evil – Operation Raccoon City: Capcom Releases Second Multiplayer Trailer
Running around five and half minutes, the trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City comes with all the stunning visuals and soundtracks that fans of the series have come to expect. The title, to be released in March 2012, is an action game using the third-person perspective. It will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the Windows PC.
Developed by both Capcom and Slant Six Games, the title will be set during the time of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 – Nemesis, particuarly in the zombie-infested town of Raccoon City. Players will control characters working under the security service of Umbrella, the company responsible for the virus outbreak which created the zombies. The characters have the responsibility of erasing any evidence of their company’s illegal activities. The trailer features shows what was left of the city’s annual fair which was left in shambles after a big zombie outbreak. The scene was dark, of course, and not pretty overall. The Umbrella people meet with people from the other side and struggle ensues ensues for the blood sample from the victims. The struggle does not end there, and further (noisier) confrontation happens, not only between the two parties, but also with the inevitable zombie.
The Resident Evil series began in 1996 and has since enjoyed a worldwide following. It has branched out to all sorts of media, including comic books, novels, and films, both using live-action and computer-generated characters. The series is a considered to be among the survival horror genre. This, of course, contributes much to the games’ interesting visuals and action, but the whole franchise is really about building up strategies to reach goals and solving puzzles, some of which are in the unlikeliest places,according to various sources. With the reputation of being one of the cleverest titles around, Resident Evil (Biohazard in Japan and other countries) is often included in lists of best games in history.
