Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is an upcoming squad-based shooter game developed by Capcom and Slant Six Games. It takes place in the same time period as Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis do, and, like the name suggests, is set in Raccoon City.
The player steps into the shoes of an Umbrella Security Service officer, tasked with destroying any evidence of Umbrella Corporation’s illegal research. The game is said to allow the player to diverge from Resident Evil canon, such as killing Leon or Clair.
Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City pits the player against survivors of the T-Virus outbreak, zombies and other mutated enemies, and the U.S. Special Ops who aim to expose Umbrella’s crimes. Besides the single-player campaign, the game also offers several competitive multiplayer modes.
