RE: Operation Raccoon City
The latest installment in the popular zombie/cult horror survival game, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, has been announced to launch March 20, 2012 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. There will be a PC release at a later date TBA, if the PC release follows the porting method like games such as Assassins Creed then you can expect to see Operation Raccoon City roughly 6mo after the console release. Hopefully it the PC version is just taking longer to develop but thats unlikely, its more probable that the game will just get ported over after the initial console release.
Regardless I for one am looking forward to this game, Im a huge RE fan and am happy to see the game go back to its roots. Operation Raccoon City will take place during the events that took place in the first RE game and the player will take on the role of an Umbrella operative who is part of a squad tasked with eliminating S.T.A.R.S. agents. The game will be a squad based game which incorporates cooperative play more heavily then previous RE games. If I had to pick one aspect of the game to look forward to it would be how anxious I am to see how Leon’s future is going to play out. Will the game seamlessly connect to the future events in RE portrayed in previous RE games or tell a unique story of “what if” and kill off every RE hero we know and love?
What are your thoughts? which scenario would you like to see play out?
