The New Operation In Raccoon City Begins On March 20
Raccoon City is once again infested with evil, and it'll be up to you to save it from the undead's clutches.
Developed by Slant Six (SOCOM), Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a new take on the legendary franchise, and it's more third-person shooter and less survival/horror. Thankfully, hardcore fans needn't worry about Capcom abandoning the classic theme, which should return with Resident Evil 6.
Now, Capcom has confirmed that the new spin-off will launch on March 20 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360; the PC version will release later. Take control of several elite commandos employed by the Umbrella Corporation; for the first time, we'll actually be on the side of Umbrella, which has been depicted in a dark, negative light in past installments.
If you want to pre-order the game at participating retailers, you can grab an extra costume for each of the playable characters, plus two retailer-exclusive bonus weapons. Lastly, there will be a Special Edition, featuring a steelbook case, two embroidered patches and all eight bonus weapons. Personally, I'll probably be more into RE6, but I believe Capcom can create a positive spin-off.
