A third person team based shooter experience set within the dark and sinister Resident Evil universe, the title is a reinterpretation of the events depicted in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3. The unique setting of the Resident Evil universe not only provides a rich backdrop to the action but delivers a unique and thrilling triple threat battle. Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons (B.O.W’s) add to the mix as players not only compete against an opposing squad but also tackle this third unpredictable element, creating a brand new style of gameplay, breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters. Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks and fan favourite characters, including Leon S. Kennedy, who as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City is on your hit list to eliminate.
Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City features a compelling single player campaign mode where players take on the role of a member of the Umbrella Security Service, competing against all the forces at play in an attempt to destroy all evidence of Umbrella’s involvement in the t-Virus outbreak. The title will also deliver a brutal online competitive multiplayer experience. Players can engage in an eight player team versus battle across four different online modes, choosing to take the side of Umbrella or the opposing government forces, the US Spec Ops. An additional versus mode exclusive to Xbox 360 - Nemesis Mode, will be available to download at launch for 320 Microsoft Points.
