The newest update in the zombie slaying franchise Resident Evil will be hitting our shelves next month.
The game takes place during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, and is set in Raccoon City, whose residents have been turned into zombies after an outbreak of the T-virus, a biological weapon developed by the pharmaceutical company Umbrella.
Players will take the role of either an officer of the Umbrella Security Service (USS) or the United States Special Operations force. The two sides have a vastly different objectives: members of the USS are tasked with destroying evidence of Umbrella's illegal activities, including killing survivors of the outbreak, while the Special Operations team has to expose the actions of the company.
Operation Raccoon City will allow the player to make major "what-if" decisions such as killing Leon S. Kennedy, one of the protagonists of Resident Evil 2 and the protagonist of Resident Evil 4.
Capcom and Slant Six’s Raccoon City Operation goes live on 360s and PS3s March 20, and it’ll be appearing on PC monitors nationwide May 18.
