The anticipation was practically palpable when we showed you the teaser trailer for RESIDENT EVIL: OPERATION RACCOON CITY, the latest entry in the long-running video game series. Get ready to be excited all over again, as we now have a dozen stills for you to feast on.
It is September 1998 and the action centers on Raccoon City and the consequences of the deadly T-virus outbreak from the Umbrella facility. With a cover up required, Umbrella orders an elite team into Raccoon City to destroy all evidence of the outbreak and eliminate any survivors. Hearing of this plan, the US Government dispatches its own special forces to uncover any evidence that exposes the cause of the viral infection and Umbrella’s actions. Players take on the role of an Umbrella Security Services soldier (U.S.S.), competing alone or in four player co-op.
The third-person shooter is co-developed by Capcom and Saint Six Games. A release date has not yet been set, but it's expected in winter 2011. Pre-order RESIDENT EVIL: OPERATION RACCOON CITY on PlayStation 3 HERE or Xbox 360 HERE.
