Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Trailer

Are you guys all ready for more head popping fun from Capcom? At the end of the month, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is due to be released, and it looks to be great. Check out the trailer and information from Capcom.

With a whole host of new gameplay mechanics Capcom really have gone all out in this latest edition of the the Resident Evil franchise, and this game looks set to be the best of recent line of (in my opinion…) mediocre zombie games since Resident Evil 2. This is what Capcom is telling us about the game

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City
There are six playable characters in the game, Vector, Spectre, Beltway, Four Eyes, Lupo and Bertha. Each have their own unique abilities:
  • Vector (real name unknown) is the team’s recon expert and is equipped with a cloaking ability
  • Beltway (real name Hector Hivers) is proficient in the use of explosives
  • Bertha (real name Michaela Schneider) is the team’s medic
  • Spectre (real name Vladimir Bodrovski) is the team’s surveillance class and sharpshooter,
  • Four Eyes (real name Christine Yamata) is the scientist of the group with the ability to program the bio-organic weapons (BOWs)
  • Lupo (real name Karena Lesproux) who is an Assault class/Team Leader as shown in a recent trailer.
Alongside the single-player mode, the game will also offer four-player co-operative gameplay, which pits the USS against the US Special Operations task force. The zombies in the game will be able to attack the player in a multitude of ways. A zombie that gets too close to the player will usually attempt to grapple the player, prompting the player to rapidly shake his analogue stick to avoid infection.
Players who are unsuccessful in doing this will be “invisible” to nearby zombies for a limited amount of time whilst they are infected before their death in game. If a player is successfully bitten and later runs out of time after becoming infected, the player will lose control of their character and begin attacking their former teammates until shot in the head, allowing the player to respawn.
The game also utilizes a bleeding mechanic, meaning characters that have been badly wounded will be deemed “bleeding out”, giving their screen a blood red hue and making them a higher priority target to nearby infected than the others.
There will be additional enemy types in the game besides zombies. BOWs that can be confirmed from E3 are Hunters, Lickers and Tyrants. Furthermore, the player will be able to control them under certain circumstances.

The game is due for release on 23rd March 2012 on PS3 and XBOX, and 18th May 2012 on PC
