The Resident Evil franchise returns in a new form:

Quote:


Capcom has officially announced a new Resident Evil spin-off, which will 'reinterpret' the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3, while taking the series in a "completely new direction".

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is, as rumoured, in the works at Vancouver-based studio Slant 6 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

"This latest offering will take the series in a completely new direction and offer a style of gameplay yet to be seen from the franchise," reads Capcom's official announcement.

This latest offering will take the series in a completely new direction

Described as "a true third person team based shooter experience", Operation Raccoon City will see players' squads competing with others as well as taking on Zombies and Bio-Organic Weapons.

Capcom hopes to create "a brand new style of gameplay" while "breaking the conventions of traditional team based shooters."

Players step into the combat boots of Umbrella Security Services soldiers with up to three co-op buddies in a story set in Raccoon City in 1998, that will see them take on rival US special forces teams and the aforementioned threats.

"Expect the return of original Resident Evil enemies, iconic landmarks such as the Raccoon City Police Department and fan favourite characters, including Leon S. Kennedy, who as a rookie police officer in Raccoon City is on your hit list to eliminate," reads the release. We're assuming you fail at that last part.

Players will also "experience a retelling of classic moments from past titles Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3 (pictured)," and compete in a number of competitive online multiplayer modes, that play on the game's three-way combat.

Is Operation Raccoon City starting to sound more like a third-person Left 4 Dead? Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is due to release this Winter. More when we get it.

Not impressed with the trailer... I want some gameplay. I thought them throwing Leon in at the end was just an attempt to make people say, "Hey, we're still RE!"... But I just don't know. I'm not saying it will suck, but I'm just saying I'm not getting hyped up until I see a reason lol.

I dunno, I tried the "outbreak" series and it was just ahead of its time back then and have been really waiting for some action like that on these systems. L4D (dont have a 360 anymore) naturally but I want something like that on my PS3 and this looks like the ticket.

There isnt too much teamwork in games anymore with people going all rogue and stuff now days. I would love to work with a group of fellas set out to get the job done the right way and communicate without hearing racial slurs and stuff.

Looking forward to atleast a beta/demo or something.

Looks lame to me, and outsourcing their #1 IP to a 3rd party Dev? (Even if I haven;t been a fan of their Japanese-Western take on making it a shooter)

Either way this has horrible written all over it.

It was already been done with the Outbreak games, which were really good. Unfortunately they were balanced with online in mind, and Capcom used 3rd party propitiatory servers and a server management company that is now defunct. With no LAN option, they're nothing more then cup coasters now.

So it will basically be a Left 4 Dead rip off.... This one could be good if done right, but I'm not holding my breath.

RE5 wasn't even that bad, probably one of the best I've played in awhile especially in co-op.

No idea why they felt the need to redo the whole thing, they shoulda used the same team as RE5 and made this game with the RE5 engine.

4 player coop with RE5 gameplay and controls based on RE2? Yes please.

Why would it be a Left 4 Dead ripoff?

Have you not known that this game had 2 installments on the PS2 right? So that would make Left 4 Dead being the Outbreak Clone.

L4D != Outbreak

Outbreak was RE 1/2 as 4 player COOP, and revival if dead as a zombie. Like all the old RE's it was less about gunplay, and more about survival. Gunplay meant getting injured, which meant death because of the virus taking over your body.

This new game looks to be nothing like that.

Have you been able to beat either offline? I've done so with Outbreak 1, but only on normal. There's just not enough time in the last level to do both tasks, on hard difficulty without the damn AI dieing and screwing you. Haven't even bothered with Outbreak 2 yet.

I really wish they had LAN play or split screen. The games are practically worthless as is now that you can't connect online.

*** E3 2011 UPDATE ***

One of my all time favorite series is not improving as the years pass by.... the first gameplay videos look visually bland and the game appears to be a straight action shooter. .

Jesus, that looks horrible.

Capcom needs to just let this IP die already. It's finally totally lost everything that made it unique, fun, and interesting.

Dead Island gameplay from what I saw looks to have a pretty big open world to explore.. Im kinda excited for this game as you can play with 4 friends co-op style..

I don't think that this game is meant to be part of the main series (ie. it isn't RE6).

I loved RE4 and after the initial disappointment of not being able to move while shooting in RE5, I've grown to love that game as well. If the whole of RE5 had taken place in the "Lost in Nightmares" DLC setting, it would have been significantly better.

This is a "Re-imagining" of RE2.

Oh, a side series like Outbreak was (and Resident Evil: Survivor arcade game). I actually feel better now.

And this gameplay video looks better than the ones posted earlier.

Gameplay is decent. Lots of guns/abilities to choose from. Doesn't really have any RE element to it(other than the story line, which is really irrelevant). Really just a 3rd person shooter w/ some RE plot lines sprinkled on top. A good used copy pick up or weekend rental. You wouldn't even think you're playing a RE game if not for the cut scenes.
