E3 2002: Resident Evil Online shown
Finishing off Sony's press conference in the morning today was a nice little trailer of Resident Evil Online. The demo had a camera pan all the way down from the sky, to show a zombie infested Raccoon City. On the screen there were 4 game characters who were running around the presented environment, killing zombies and etc. Basically the video showed off 4 game characters going on a zombie killing spree. Obviously, those 4 game characters are representing characters that humans will control. There is no specific number of characters that can be played in one room/server, as neither Capcom or Sony have made comments on that.
Visually, the game is 100% 3D and real-time -- marking the second time an RE game is real-time since Code Veronica for PS2. We'll keep you covered on Resident Evil Online whenever you can, just keep posted for more info.
